Dunn (knee) will miss the remainder of the season, Joe Cowley of the Sun-Times reports. This was widely speculated to be the case, but coach Jim Boylen finally confirmed it after Tuesday's practice. Dunn is dealing with a sprained MCL in his right knee and is due to be re-evaluated around the end of the month.
Dunn (knee) is set to have his sprained right MCL re-examined in 4-to-6 weeks. Dunn missed the final five games before the break, and he'll continue to rehab throughout the next several weeks with the goal of getting back on the floor sometime before the end of the season. Given the Bulls' standing in the East, there's no reason to push Dunn to return, so it wouldn't be a surprise if we've seen the last of him for 2019-20.
Dunn (knee) is scheduled to be reexamined this week, but there's growing belief within the organization that he'll miss the remainder of the season, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Dunn was ruled out indefinitely Feb. 4 after an MRI confirmed he was dealing with a sprained MCL in his right knee. The Bulls haven't issued another formal update on Dunn since that time, though coach Jim Boylen told Jamal Collier of the Chicago Tribune last week that the 2016 lottery pick won't return to basketball activities until the inflammation in his knee subsides. Dunn suffered a similar injury last season and missed 23 games, so he appears to be firmly in the week-to-week camp at this stage; he's only been sidelined for four contests thus far.
Dunn (knee) underwent an MRI and exam Saturday that confirmed the initial diagnosis of a sprained MCL he received when he exited Friday's 133-118 loss to the Nets. The Bulls will re-evaluate Dunn after a two-week phase of immobilization and physical therapy before providing an updated timeline for his return. As anticipated, Dunn's right knee injury is of the week-to-week variety rather than a day-to-day concern. He'll remain out through at least the All-Star break, and quite likely, additional weeks to follow. As K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago notes, Dunn sustained a similar injury a season ago and missed 23 games, so he could face a similarly lengthy recovery time once again. Chandler Hutchison looks like he'll be one of the biggest beneficiaries while Dunn is sidelined, as he entered the starting five in Sunday's loss to the Raptors and finished with 17 points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes.
Dunn (knee) underwent a preliminary exam Sunday, which revealed a sprained MCL, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The Bulls have yet to determine a timeline for Dunn's return. Dunn was ruled out in advance of the Bulls' final game of the road trip Sunday in Toronto after sustaining the injury in the opening minute of Friday's 133-118 loss to the Nets and not returning. The Bulls are expected to pinpoint a clearer timeline for Dunn's return once he visits a doctor, likely early this week. Chandler Hutchison is expected to see the biggest boost in playing time while Dunn is out for at least Sunday's game, and likely additional contests to follow.
