    Dunleavy (back) will play in Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Sean Highkin of Bleacher Report reports. Dunleavy has been limited since returning from surgery but he'll likely continue to see increased minutes. He played 16 minutes on Monday, look for him to see some added time on Wednesday.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Probable to play Wednesday

    Dunleavy (back) is considered probable for Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports. Dunleavy has seen limited minutes off the bench in two games since returning from back surgery, most recently playing 16 minutes and scoring eight points Monday against Charlotte. The veteran will likely see a similar workload Wednesday night, though the team will wait to evaluate him one final time later in the afternoon before giving him official clearance.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Starts Monday

    Dunleavy will start Monday against the Hornets, Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago reports. Monday will just be the second outing of the season for Dunleavy after recovering from back complications, but the Bulls are in desperate need with Derrick Rose (rest), Jimmy Butler (knee), and Nikola Mirotic (appendectomy) all out of the lineup. Dunleavy eventually figured to start anyway, but coach Fred Hoiberg's hand was forced into a decision he would have normally waited on. Nevertheless, Dunleavy is still working on getting back to game form and will likely be limited through the All-Star break to prevent a setback.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Scores five points in 14 minutes in debut

    Dunleavy (back) tallied five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt) in 14 minutes off the bench during his season debut in Saturday's 112-105 loss to the Timberwolves. The Bulls were without their top star in Jimmy Butler, who sprained his knee a night earlier in the game against the Nuggets, but were able to help fill some of the void on the wing by plugging Dunleavy back in for his season debut after a long recovery process from offseason back surgery. Dunleavy, who missed 49 games due to the injury, unsurprisingly saw his time on the court limited, and he'll likely see his minutes restricted until after the All-Star break. Butler's injury isn't believed to be a long-term concern, but with Nikola Mirotic (appendectomy) facing an uncertain return timeline, Dunleavy could push E'Twaun Moore for the starting wing role alongside Butler.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Will play Saturday

    Dunleavy (back) announced that he will play Saturday against Minnesota, K.C Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. The veteran Dunleavy is set to make his season debut Saturday against Minnesota after missing almost the entirety of the first half of the year with a back injury. He'll likely be on a heavy minutes restriction as he works his way back into game shape.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Questionable to play Saturday

    Dunleavy (back) is questionable to play Saturday versus the Bulls, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. Dunleavy has yet to make his season debut after undergoing back surgery late in the summer, but could see an immediate role in the team's rotation if he can return Saturday. The reason being that Jimmy Butler suffered a sprained knee in Friday's game, and the Bulls could use a scoring presence on the wing. Expect an update on his status closer to tip-off.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Ruled out vs. Denver

    Dunleavy (back) has been ruled out for Friday's matchup with the Nuggets, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports. Dunleavy is yet to play this season after undergoing back surgery late in the summer. The veteran had been practicing with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the D-League, but he was recalled Wednesday with the possibility that he could return to NBA action Friday night. While that won't be the case, Dunleavy will make the trip with the team, and he should be considered day-to-day going forward. His next opportunity to debut will come Saturday night in Minnesota.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Recalled from NBA D-League, expected to join team for Friday

    Dunleavy (back) was recalled from the D-League on Wednesday, K.C Johnson of The Chicago Tribune reports. After logging a pair of practices with Chicago's D-League affiliate, the veteran wing is now extremely close to making his 2015-2016 debut. A back issue has kept him on the sidelines for the whole season to this point, but the expectation is for Dunleavy to travel with the team for Friday's game in Denver. Any owners considering adding Dunleavy should be aware that the 35-year-old coming off a back injury will likely be held under a conservative minutes restriction until he works himself into game shape.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Assigned to D-League

    Dunleavy (back) has been assigned to the Bulls D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz. Dunleavy has been working his way back from a back sprain, and his assignment to the D-league is a good sign that he could be nearing a return. If all goes well and he is able to practice fine he could return to the Bulls in the next week or two.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: "Really close" to returning

    Dunleavy (back) practiced for a second straight day Saturday and said he's "getting really close" to making his season debut, the Chicago Tribune reports. "I'm pain free. I'm feeling good, moving well," Dunleavy said. "A little bit more conditioning to get in game shape. But then just a couple of good scrimmages where I say, 'All right, I can play in an NBA game.'" Dunleavy is scheduled to practice twice next week with, oddly enough, Golden State's D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz. If those workouts go without incident, it's possible he returns during the Bulls' current seven-game road trip.
