Executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said following the lottery that the Bulls are "really solid" at the "2, 3, 4, 5 spots," Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports. Paxson went on to intimate that "We have not given up on [Dunn]. I think he has defensive abilities. But we have to get better at that position, there's absolutely no question in my mind." These are poignant words from the Bulls' front office following the draft lottery, and it seems reasonable to assume Dunn might be on the move sooner than later. Next year, Dunn will be 25 years old and in his fourth year in the league. He's shown promise across the past two campaigns with the Bulls, improving his three-point stroke and assist-to-turnover ratio. In 2017-18, he ranked 2nd in the league in steal percentage (3.3%, 2.5 STL per 36 minutes). If Dunn indeed gets moved, his fantasy stock could increase, assuming he goes to a team that's in need of a starting point guard.
Dunn (back) is not expected to play Wednesday against the Sixers. Dunn hasn't been on the floor since Mar. 23, and there's no reason for the Bulls to throw him back out there in what's ultimately a meaningless contest. Expect Ryan Arcidiacono to make another start at the point as the Bulls limp to the finish line.
Dunn (back) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Knicks. Dunn has been held out of the last six contests due to a back strain, so there's very little hope that he'll return for the team's final matchup. His last chance to play this season will come Wednesday in Philadelphia.
Dunn (back) is out Saturday against the 76ers, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Dunn has been out over the past five games due to a strained back and time is running out for him to step onto the court again. The Bulls have just two more games after Saturday.
Dunn (back) is doubtful for Saturday's matchup against the 76ers. Dunn is expected to miss a sixth straight contest while recovering from a mid-back strain. His next opportunity to play arrives Tuesday against the Knicks, and it marks the second-to-last game of the season.
