The Bulls coaching staff and front office "have been less than impressed" with Kris Dunn’s early summer work habits so far, according to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun Times.
First, we have to add that this report comes from someone who hasn't exactly been kind to the Bulls over the years, so keep that in mind. Plus, President John Paxson said Dunn will return as the starting point guard back in April. That aside, this is interesting to hear at this point of the year, and maybe Dunn missing so much time late in the year has influenced the Bulls front office. Dunn should still be considered the heavy favorite to start on opening night, but don't be shocked if the Bulls go with another PG at No. 7 in the draft. Jun 8 - 7:30 PM

Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson said Kris Dunn will return as the starting point guard.

"I feel really good about going into the next season with [Kris] Dunn as our starter and [Cameron] Payne as our backup." There was no mention of third-string PG Jerian Grant. Dunn has his flaws offensively, but his first season in Chicago was a success. He averaged 13.6 points, 6.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 0.6 blocks, 1.1 triples and 2.5 turnovers in 43 starts, and if he improves his shot selection, his jumper and his ball security, Dunn will have a lot of intrigue as a mid-round pick.

Kris Dunn (toe) will not play again this season.

We're surprised it took the Bulls this long to announce that his season is over. The Bulls were super cautious with Dunn and hopefully this injury doesn't linger into the offseason. He appears to be locked in as the Bulls point guard of the future and had a nice bounce-back season with averages of 13.6 points, 6.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 0.6 blocks, 1.1 triples and 2.5 turnovers in 43 starts.
Apr 2 - 1:11 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) is listed as out for Friday against the Magic.

It's starting to feel like his season is... Dunn. Jokes aside, hopefully his toe injury isn't going to affect him outside of this season or off the court.

Kris Dunn (toe) remains out for Thursday night against the Heat.

He doesn't have a timetable and it's possible he's out for the season. It's Cameron Payne time again with Jerian Grant likely to back him up.
Mar 29 - 5:29 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Rockets.

He remains without a timetable to return and may not see the floor again this season. Dunn is making progress and exercised on an elliptical machine on Saturday in his walking boot, but the Bulls would love to be cautious and improve their draft position at the same time. Cameron Payne is locked in as the starting PG for Chicago's 4-game week.

Kris Dunn (toe) exercised on an elliptical machine on Saturday in his walking boot.

The swelling is down and Dunn will travel with the Bulls on their 3-game road trip, but it doesn't sound like he will play. Coach Fred Hoiberg said the Bulls will need to get his conditioning back up, but there's a legitimate possibility that he doesn't play again this season. Cameron Payne should be owned in all standard leagues.
Mar 25 - 12:03 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) is not traveling with the team and has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Detroit.

Dunn is reportedly still in a walking boot, which means it is probably safe to assume he'll remain sidelined into next week. Cameron Payne has started the last four games for Chicago and is averaging 11.3 points, 7.0 assists, and 3.3 rebounds. Payne tweaked his ankle on Friday, but is expected to suit up on Saturday night.
Mar 24 - 9:28 AM

Kris Dunn (toe) will not play on Friday vs. the Bucks.

The Bulls are in no rush to bring Dunn back at less than 100 percent, and considering he's still in a walking boot, we'll mark him as out indefinitely. Cameron Payne will continue to start at PG and has done well for the most part, averaging 9.3 points, 7.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks, 0.7 steals and 2.0 triples through three starts.
Mar 22 - 1:19 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. Denver.

This is certainly not surprising news, as Dunn is now in a walking boot after it was reported on Monday that he had suffered a setback while rehabbing his toe injury. Unfortunately, it's tough to be optimistic about Dunn's fantasy value going forward. After Wednesday, the Bulls will have just 11 games remaining on their schedule. And they have been blatantly tanking since the All-Star break. Thus, they obviously won't rush Dunn back until he is 100 percent healthy. Cameron Payne will continue to draw starts at PG.
Mar 20 - 1:12 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) has suffered a setback and will go into a walking boot.

The Bulls are officially listing Dunn as day-to-day, but in Chicago speak, that could really mean week-to-week. There's zero incentive to rush Dunn back to the court and risk another setback, so expect them to be extremely cautious bringing him along. Cameron Payne will be starting in his absence, and after posting a 13-point, 10-dime double-double on Saturday, he's someone to consider swooping up in deep leagues. Dunn, unfortunately, is a cut candidate.
Mar 19 - 6:18 PM

Kris Dunn (toe) will not be traveling to New York for Monday's game against the Knicks.

Monday will mark Dunn's second straight game on the sidelines, and he might not be back anytime soon as Fred Hoiberg said he's dealing with a "turf-toe type injury." Cameron Payne will hold down the fort at the point guard spot while Dunn and Zach LaVine (knee) are out, and he's coming off a 13-point, 10-dime game, so he'll be someone to consider streaming on Monday. Dunn is a cut-candidate in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot.
Mar 18 - 6:01 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said Kris Dunn is dealing with "like a turf-toe type injury."

That's a discouraging quote and it sounds like this injury is going to linger a bit for Dunn. Considering the Bulls were just called out by the league for resting healthy players, you'd think Dunn would miss additional time here. If you need games now, he's a drop candidate. Believe it or not, Cameron Payne is a solid pickup if you need a point guard.
Mar 17 - 6:31 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Kris Dunn (toe) and Lauri Markkanen (back) have both been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Cleveland.

Dunn injured his toe in Thursday's win over the Grizzlies. X-rays came back negative, and he was listed as day-to-day. However, with the Bulls in tank mode, they have no reason to rush Dunn back into the lineup unless he is 100 percent. Zach LaVine (sore knee) and Noah Vonleh (toe) are questionable for Saturday. Cameron Payne will likely draw the start at point guard. Payne finished with eight points and five assists in 25 minutes on Thursday. Jerian Grant might also re-enter the rotation on Saturday.
Mar 16 - 1:19 PM

X-rays came back negative on Kris Dunn's right toe, and he's being listed as day-to-day.

It sounds like Dunn is simply dealing with a sprain, but the Bulls have a quick turnaround with another game on Saturday against the Cavs, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit that one out. If Dunn can't give it a go, Cameron Payne could start, and there would be more opportunity for guys like Zach LaVine, Bobby Portis and Denzel Valentine. Check back for another update following Saturday morning's shootaround.
