Grizzlies' Kris Dunn: Waived by Memphis
Dunn (mouth) was waived by the Grizzlies on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Dunn appeared in just one preseason contest, where he posted two steals in 17 minutes, and then sat out the remainder of the preseason due to a dental procedure. With the Grizzlies having Ja Morant, Tyus Jones and De'Anthony Melton as point guard options, there wouldn't have been much room for Dunn to see minutes.... See More ... See Less

Grizzlies' Kris Dunn: Not on injury report
Dunn is not listed on the Grizzlies' injury report ahead of Tuesday's preseason contest against the Bucks.
Dunn sat of practice Sunday due to a non-COVID-19 illness, but he appears healthy and may make his Grizzlies debut in the preseason opener. The 27-year-old was traded to Memphis by the Celtics in exchange for Juancho Hernangomez this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Grizzlies' Kris Dunn: Misses practice with illness
Dunn wasn't present for the Grizzlies' practice session Sunday due to a non-COVID-19-related illness, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Dunn likely won't need much time to move past the ailment, but his availability for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Bucks is in question nonetheless. The veteran guard was acquired by the Grizzlies earlier in the offseason after he appeared in just four regular-season games for the Hawks in 2020-21 due to a prolonged recovery from right ankle surgery....

Grizzlies' Kris Dunn: Headed to Memphis
Dunn, along with Carsen Edwards and a 2026 second-round pick swap, was traded by the Celtics to the Grizzlies on Friday in exchange for Juancho Hernangomez, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Dunn spent nearly all of the 2020 season recovering from an ankle injury, as he only played in four total games. After getting traded to Boston roughly a month ago, the 27-year-old is now on his way to Memphis, where he joins a crowded Grizzlies backcourt. In his last full season, Dunn notched 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 steals in 24.9 minutes with the Bulls, but he'll likely struggle to hit that kind of workload this year....

Celtics' Kris Dunn: Moved to Boston
Dunn, plus a 2023 second-round pick and Bruno Fernando, was traded by the Hawks to the Celtics on Friday for Tristan Thompson, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
With the Celtics swapping out Kemba Walker for Al Horford and Moses Brown in the offseason, Boston suddenly became deep at center and barren at point guard. With this trade, some of that imbalance is relieved. Dunn played just four games for Atlanta last season, as he dealt with a bothersome ankle injury. However, he's proven to be one of the best defensive guards in the league. In 2019-20 with the Bulls, he averaged 2.0 steals per game in 24.9 minutes while also contributing 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists. He'll be fighting for backcourt minutes primarily with Payton Pritchard.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Staying with Atlanta
Dunn is picking up his $5 million player option for the 2021-22 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
In his first season with the Hawks, Dunn played in just four regular season games as he dealt with a nagging ankle injury that delayed his debut until late April. It was unlikely that he would garner a bigger role or more money if he left, so it is no surprise to see the 27-year-old exercising his player option. The 2016 No. 5 overall pick's production has steadily declined in each year since he averaged 13.4 points, 6.0 assists and 2.0 steals during his first season with the Bulls (2017-18). If healthy, the Providence product can offer a defensive-minded presence off the bench in a backup role to Trae Young.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Off injury report
Dunn (illness) is not listed on the injury report for Game 3 against the 76ers on Friday, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.
Dunn appears to have recovered from an illness that has kept him sidelined for the first two games of the series. Though he's available if needed for Game 3, it's not likely that the 27-year-old guard will find a spot in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Remains out Tuesday
Dunn (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 2 against the 76ers, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dunn will miss a second straight game to begin Round 2. However, his absence shouldn't impact Atlanta's game plan, as he missed virtually the entire regular season and never truly established a spot in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Out with illness
Dunn is out for Sunday's Game 1 against the 76ers due to an illness, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Dunn played just three minutes in Round 1 against the Knicks. His availability shouldn't be a factor in this series.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Clear of injury report
Dunn (ankle) isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's Game 1 versus the Knicks.
The 27-year-old sat out the final game of the regular season with an ankle issue but is good to go for the start of the playoffs. Dunn saw the court in only one of the previous seven games before the injury, so he's unlikely to be a significant rotation piece if the Hawks can stay healthy.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Won't play Sunday
Dunn (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against Houston, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Dunn is dealing with a left ankle injury that will keep him sidelined for the last game of the regular season. He hasn't been a part of the Atlanta rotation lately.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Minutes limit increased
Dunn's minutes limit has been increased ahead of Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Dunn saw 13 minutes in his season debut Monday against the Pistons. It's not clear how much Dunn is expected to play Wednesday, but we shouldn't be surprised if he cracks 20 minutes, especially since Trae Young (ankle) is out.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kris Dunn: Brings defense in Atlanta debut
Dunn (ankle) played 13 minutes off the bench Monday in the Hawks' 100-86 loss to the Pistons, providing zero points (0-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, one steal and one block.
Making his Hawks debut and playing in his first NBA game since Jan. 29, 2020 following a prolonged recovery from an MCL sprain in his knee and right ankle surgery, Dunn faced a strict minutes cap while playing on the second unit. Even with the Hawks down multiple key guards/wings, Dunn had a limited role offensively. That will likely remain the case even once Dunn is free of any minutes restrictions, as the Hawks signed him to a two-year deal during the offseason mainly for what he can provide on the defensive end. For fantasy purposes, Dunn is probably best viewed as a streamer for steals.... See More ... See Less
