Dunn had 13 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 120-102 win over the Knicks.
Dunn made a serious dent in the box score before fouling out, and he continues to showcase his aggressiveness especially on defense. Dunn is also maintaining a career-best field goal percentage, though he'll need to string together performances like this more often if that trend is going to continue going forward.
Dunn produced 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 FT), five steals, three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 113-93 win over the Hawks.
Dunn matched his career high in steals and has snagged at least three in four of nine appearances. Moreover, this was his best scoring effort of the season. He's making the most of his minutes, but Dunn has only seen at least 20 minutes four times thus far.
Dunn posted eight points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four assists, two steals and one rebound across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 117-111 loss to the Cavaliers.
Dunn has carved out a solid backup role with the Bulls, seeing 21.6 minutes per game. He has recorded at least one steal in each of Chicago's first five games, and he's averaging 2.2 per game. Barring an injury to Bulls backcourt players, Dunn will likely only continue to be fantasy relevant in deeper formats, though he might make for a nice streaming option for steals on a three- or four-game week.
Dunn scored 11 points (5-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding four steals, two rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 126-125 loss to the Hornets.
The Bulls' three point guards saw nearly equal workloads, with Tomas Satoransky playing 24 minutes as the starter but making little impact in the box score, and rookie Coby White delivering an impressive NBA debut in his 27 bench minutes. Dunn is arguably the least likely of the three to wrest away the starting job, but he could prove to be a key cog on Chicago's second unit given his defensive chops.
Dunn will come off the bench to start the 2019-20 season, while Tomas Satoransky gets the nod at point guard, KC Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Given the acquisitions of Tomas Satoransky and Coby White over the summer, Dunn's bench role shouldn't come as a surprise. It's not exactly clear what his role in the rotation will be, which makes him a risky pick in fantasy in standard leagues. In four preseason games, Dunn has averaged 6.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.8 steals in 24.2 minutes.
Dunn had eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six steals, five rebounds, and two assists in 29 minutes during Friday's 105-87 preseason loss to the Pacers.
Dunn had another nice game Friday, racking up an impressive six steals in the loss to the Pacers. He has been a nice surprise for the Bulls given how low his stocks were only two weeks ago. They may be looking to trade him and if that is the case, could run him out there to begin the season. He has the ability to rack up steals and assists when he is on the floor and so those looking for particular categories at the backend of drafts could do worse.
Dunn finished with 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 24 minutes during Monday's 122-112 preseason loss to the Bucks.
Dunn was given first crack at the starting point guard position, coming away with 11 points in 24 minutes. There has been much speculation as to who will be the starter come opening night. White and Tomas Satoransky are the other two players in line for that spot, both of whom played similar minutes in this one. This certainly doesn't make things any clearer and managers are simply going to have to monitor the situation moving forward.
Dunn will start Monday's preseason opener against the Bucks, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The Bulls will go with Dunn and Zach LaVine in the backcourt, with Otto Porter, Lauri Markkanen and Cristiano Felicio up front. Coach Jim Boylen has implied that he'll try out multiple lineups during the preseason, but the fact that Dunn is getting the early nod over Tomas Satoransky at point guard is a noteworthy development worth monitoring over the next two weeks.
Coach Jim Boylen said Wednesday during an appearance on NBA TV that Dunn will enter the upcoming season as the Bulls' starting point guard.
Specifically, Boylen said he had his "first five set," with the coach naming Dunn, Zach LaVine, Otto Porter, Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter as the members of the team's top unit. Boylen's comments come as a surprise amid rumors of Dunn being on the trade block in the wake of the Bulls selecting another point guard (Coby White) with the seventh overall pick and then acquiring Tomas Satoransky. In spite of the endorsement he received, Dunn seems unlikely to stick in the starting five for the duration of 2019-20 and could be moved once the team feels White is ready to take on a larger role.
Dunn's role will likely be impacted by the Bulls selecting Coby White with the No. 7 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Dunn's role with Chicago was openly questioned by the team's executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson last month. Now that the team has selected point guard Coby White with the No. 7 pick in the draft Dunn will likely forfeit his starting slot and come off the bench. Barring he gets moved before the season begins his fantasy value in all formats will take a hit from last year.
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 (back) will not play Wednesday against the Wizards, NBC Sports Wizards reports.
Dunn was initially listed as doubtful, and he'll now miss his fifth straight game due to a back injury. Given how many players the Bulls have already shut down, it's entirely possible Dunn could remain out through the end of the season.
Dunn (back) is unlikely to play Wednesday against Washington.
Dunn has missed the last four games due to a back injury, and he appears on track to extend that streak to five after being handed a doubtful tag. The Bulls have given Walter Lemon, Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaquille Harrison a shot to start at point guard with Dunno on the shelf, so it remains to be seen who will take over ball-handling duties Wednesday night, assuming Dunn is officially ruled out at some point.
Dunn (back) will not play in Monday's game against the Knicks, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Dunn will miss his fourth straight game as he continues to deal with a back injury. His next opportunity to play will come Wednesday against the Wizards and he should be considered questionable for that game at this time.
