Providence's Kris Dunn questionable for Friday with shoulder injury
The Friars are hoping to contend for an NCAA tourney berth this season. Kris Dunn is a big factor in those plans. A shoulder injury has put his status for Friday in question.
Providence point guard Kris Dunn injured his right shoulder over the weekend, and his status for Friday's opener remains in question.
Dunn, a sophomore and a four-star product out of New London, Conn., had an MRI Monday to determine the damage sustained during the team's exhibition game against Rhode Island College.
According to Kevin McNamara of the Providence Journal, Dunn is still sore from the injury, which occurred when going after a loose ball.
"Right now Kris is day to day," head coach Ed Cooley told McNamara. "We'll see how he does the next few days."
This is not the first time Dunn has injured his right shoulder, and because of that, some are holding their breath around PC. In the summer of 2012 Dunn needed surgery for a torn labrum on his right shoulder, an injury that led to him missing the first nine games of last season.
Dunn finished last season averaging 5.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 18 starts. Providence opens its season at home on Friday, against Boston College.
