Kris Dunn Out Indefinitely After Entering Concussion Protocol

The Bulls will be without sophomore guard Kris Dunn for an indefinite period of time after he entered the league’s concussion protocol on Wednesday, K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune writes.

Dunn fell awkwardly after a dunk Wednesday night, landing face first on the United Center floor. Initial test results suggested that Dunn had been cleared of concussion symptoms, but he did fall hard enough to chip and dislocate his two front teeth.

Dunn will not travel with the team when it leaves for a three-game road trip on Friday.

In what’s been widely regarded as a breakout season, Dunn has averaged 13.7 points, 6.4 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game for the Bulls. Backup point guard Jerian Grant is expected to slide into the starting lineup during Dunn’s absence.

    Luckily it wasn’t something more serious than a concussion and 2 dislocated teeth. That was a nasty thing to watch last night.

    Get well soon, Kris

    It would also be worth mentioning that he’s third in the NBA in steals. Defense has always been his calling card, going back to his days at Providence.

  3. How did he pass initial concussion tests and then get placed into the concussion protocol?

      Concussion symptoms don’t always show up right away. U must not follow the NFL.

      • I do, and I know that Post-Concussion Symptoms are a thing, it just seems weird that he would pass the initial tests only for them to pop up again so shortly after.

    He’s averaging 4.6 R and 6.4 A per game with the Bulls. 3.0 and 3.7 are his career averages.

    Bad break for such a talented player, having a breakout season. He’s been steadily working on his shot with Hoiberg, making some adjustments and improvements.

    He’s also been a very solid defender for the Bulls, among the league leaders in steals, yet he’s not one of those players that takes risks to play the passing lanes. His steals typically come from his solid on-ball, one on one defense, or when he takes advantage picking a pocket coming over on his help defense.

    If he can consistently get his 3-point shot down, and continue making improvements on his court vision and decision making, then Dunn could very well become a younger version of John Wall. He still has a ways to go though.

    He might not ever average 9 assists per year, but he can run the offense and get you 6-10 assists on any given night. His court vision and decision making is improving. He will also give you top defense from the PG position. He’s capable of getting steals, and is a pretty good rebounder for a PG. Also, he can make plays and can get you 15-20 points a night. He’s 24, and is showing great signs in his 2nd season, he just has to maintain a higher level of consistency and continue to show some more growth.

    Hopefully he gets better soon, and continue his breakout year…A great pickup for the Bulls, after everyone had just about written Kris Dunn off…
