  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Joins starting five

    Dosunmu will start Wednesday's Game 5 against the Bucks.

    With Alex Caruso (concussion) sidelined, Dosunmu will take his place as the Bulls' starting point guard for Game 5. He contributed eight points, two assists, two rebounds and a steal across 29 minutes in Sunday's Game 4, and he should have more opportunities Wednesday with Caruso and Zach LaVine (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) sidelined.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Starts second half of Game 4

    Dosunmu started the second half of Sunday's Game 4 against the Bucks, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.

    Alex Caruso was hit in the fact during the final minutes of the first half, but it's unclear if he'll be available off the bench during the second half. Dosunmu has averaged just 1.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 11.3 minutes during the first three games of the series.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Plays 45 minutes in finale

    Dosunmu totaled 26 points (9-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five rebounds, six assists and two steals across 45 minutes during Sunday's 124-120 victory over Minnesota.

    Dosunmu came off the bench in Friday's loss to the Hornets, but he started and played a career-high 45 minutes Sunday since the Bulls rested several key contributors during the regular-season finale. He had averaged 8.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 28.6 minutes per game in his nine appearances leading up to Sunday's matchup, and he figures to see closer to his usual allotment of work once the playoffs begin next weekend.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Will start Sunday

    Dosunmu will start Sunday's game against the Timberwolves.

    With Chicago's big three all resting, plus Coby White (toe) and Alex Caruso (back) sidelined, Dosunmu will get the nod at point guard and could end up functioning as the No. 1 offensive option. He'll start alongside Troy Brown, Javonte Green, Patrick Williams and Tristan Thompson.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Not starting Friday

    Dosunmu isn't starting Friday's game against Charlotte.

    Dosunmu had started in each of his last eight appearances, and he averaged 8.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 28.6 minutes per game during that time. However, he'll come off the bench while Coby White serves as the starting point guard Friday.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Set to start Thursday

    Dosunmu will start in Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

    With DeMar DeRozan ruled out with a hip injury, Dosunmu will pick up the start in relief. The rookie has made 31 starts on the season and is averaging 11.1 points, 5.8 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.2 steals as a starter.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Lands bench role Monday

    Dosunmu finished Monday's 113-99 victory over the Raptors with 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds, six assists and one block in 24 minutes.

    Dosunmu moved back to the bench Monday, ceding his starting spot to Alex Caruso. It's been a nice run of 12-team value for the rookie, something that could come to an end should his playing time fall to fewer than 25 minutes per night. With that being said, managers holding Dosunmu might want to wait to see how things play out over the next game or two before making any moves.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Heads to bench

    Dosunmu isn't starting Monday's game against Toronto.

    Dosunmu was held to just four points in 29 minutes Friday against the Suns and has struggled to averages of 10.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists over his last seven contests. Now that Alex Caruso has been able to acclimate to game action, Dosunmu could remain a permanent fixture on the bench going forward.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Expected to remain in bench role

    Dosunmu will be utilized as Chicago's backup point guard moving forward, Julia Poe of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Alex Caruso was moved into the starting lineup for Monday's game against Toronto, and after the game, head coach Billy Donovan stated that this is likely a long-term decision. He also noted that the move had nothing to do with Dosunmu's recent performance, stating the rookie guard has been "incredible," per Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago. Dosunmu still managed to log 24 minutes off the bench in Monday's victory and figures to see plenty of opportunities to develop as the regular season winds down.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Flops in rout

    Dosunmu accumulated four points (2-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes during Friday's 129-102 loss to Phoenix.

    Dosonmu continues to start at the two-guard spot alongside Zach LaVine, and while that's led to a mini-breakout in Year 1, Dosunmu's production has been a bit shaky over the last few games. He did finish with 15 points and six assists against Utah on Wednesday, but prior to that he had just six points on 3-of-9 shooting, to go with two assists and two rebounds, in the Bulls' loss to Sacramento on Monday.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Good overall production in win

    Dosunmu notched 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals in 36 minutes during Saturday's 101-91 victory over Cleveland.

    Dosunmu did a little bit of everything in the victory as he continues to post solid numbers amid Chicago's backcourt absences. Although Alex Caruso returned to action, Dosunmu still held down the fort as Lonzo Ball's (knee) direct pivot. As Caruso gets back into playing mode, both Dosunmu and Coby White could be negatively affected.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Good to go Saturday

    Dosunmu (hip) is available Saturday against the Cavaliers.

    As expected, Dosunmu will play through a strained right hip. However, his workload could be reduced soon, as Alex Caruso (wrist) is making his return Saturday.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Probable Saturday

    Dosunmu is probable for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers due to a strained left adductor.

    Dosunmu has appeared in 11 straight games with averages of 11.2 points, 5.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 35.6 minutes. He'll presumably play Saturday, but his workload moving forward could take a hit with Alex Caruso (wrist) on the verge of a return.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Leads team in assists

    Dosunmu contributed nine points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and three steals over 37 minutes during Wednesday's 114-108 victory over the Pistons.

    Dosunmu was the Bulls' primary distributor on Wednesday, as DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic handled scoring responsibilities, with each of them posting 20-plus points. The rookie also led the team in plus-minus on Wednesday (plus-14), and he's handled the team's starting point guard duties well, as Lonzo Ball (knee) and Alex Caruso (wrist) work their way back from injuries. Dosunmu will look to have another positive impact when the Bulls host Cleveland on Saturday.
