G - ATL
The Hawks signed G Kris Dunn to a two-year, $10 million contract on Saturday. The deal includes a player option for the second year.
Dunn became a free agent after the Bulls declined his qualifying offer. He ultimately winded up in Atlanta. The former No.5 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft is primarily known for his defense and will give the Hawks backcourt depth. Dunn averaged 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 steals over 51 games for the Bulls last season. The 26-year-old guard is worth a late-round flyer in deep-league formats.
Per sources, Bulls G Kris Dunn is not expected to have his qualifying offer picked up by Chicago. The Clippers are reportedly among the teams interested in signing the potential free agent.
Dunn battled injuries throughout his three-year stint with Chicago, and after drawing 32 starts last past year, it looks like he'll take his talents elsewhere for the upcoming season. With teams already lining up for his services, the potential free-agent-to-be should have no issues finding a new team.
In compliance with NBA safety protocol, Kris Dunn has been receiving treatment on his right knee MCL sprain, at the Advocate Center.
Dunn initially sustained the injury when his knee collided with Thaddeus Young in a game versus the Nets on January 31st. In March, he was officially ruled out for the season. Dunn averaged 7.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and two steals per contest. The point guard could be a nice streamer in 2020, for fantasy owners looking for an edge in steals.
Kris Dunn will miss the remainder of the 2020 season due to a knee injury he suffered in February.
Dunn should be dropped from all teams as he will not accrue any fantasy points for the remainder of the season. His timetable to return was originally set pretty late into the 2020 season, so this news does not come at a surprise. Dunn will look to get back on the court healthy in the 2020 - 2021 season.
Kris Dunn (knee) could miss the remainder of the season due to a sprained right MCL.
Dunn had an MRI on his right knee on February 4th confirming he was dealing with a sprained MCL. He was ruled out indefinitely and would be re-evaluated in two weeks. "Dunn still has some swelling in that knee," coach Jim Boylen said before the Bulls lost to the Wizards on Feb. 11 in Washington, their final game before the break. "Once his swelling goes down, he will get re-scanned and re-evaluated. But he had a lot of swelling," per K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports. The 25-year old guard is week-to-week and is in danger of missing the rest of the season. Look for Chandler Hutchinson to see an uptick in minutes with Dunn sidelined.
