Dunn had his walking boot removed from his surgically repaired right ankle Thursday, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports. The 26-year-old had been confined to the boot for approximately two weeks after having the arthroscopic ankle procedure Dec. 30. Now that the boot is off, Dunn will be cleared for weight-bearing rehabilitation and modified form shooting, but his return to full-court, full-contact work in practice is still likely multiple weeks away.
Dunn (ankle) underwent surgery Tuesday and will be placed in a walking boot. After a two-week period of rest, he will be reviewed. Dunn will be reviewed in two weeks, but that's only to determine what sort of workouts he can start, so he still essentially remains out indefinitely. More information should become available in mid-January.
The Hawks announced Sunday that Dunn will undergo arthroscopic surgery Dec. 30 to remove loose cartilage in his right ankle. He's considered out indefinitely. The loose cartilage in Dunn's ankle had caused ongoing discomfort in his knees and lower back, inhibiting his overall range of motion. As a result, the Hawks determined that surgery was in Dunn's best interest, likely leaving the veteran guard out several weeks, if not two months or longer. Dunn won't be a lock to earn a spot in a deep Hawks rotation once he's made a full recovery from surgery.
Dunn (knee) will be re-evaluated on Dec. 28, meaning he'll miss the first two games of the regular season, Brad Rowland of Locked on Hawks reports. Dunn has been dealing with a cartilage disruption in his right knee and has been limited in practice, not taking contact. While he's sidelined, that will likely mean more minutes for Rajon Rondo and possibly Brandon Goodwin.
Dunn (knee) is out for Friday's preseason opener against the Magic, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Dunn is nursing a right knee injury and hasn't yet taken contact in practice, so it will be a while before he's ready to play in a game.
