KC Johnson: Dunn, Zipser questionable vs. Thunder.
KC Johnson: Fred Hoiberg confirms original estimate that Kris Dunn is sidelined 2-4 weeks w/ open dislocation of finger. Dunn visited specialist Monday.
With Kris Dunn’s finger injury, expect that to change. Hoiberg has said Valentine will draw some minutes at backup point guard. “As long as Denzel is out there making simple plays, we’ll be fine,” Hoiberg said. “The one thing about this offense is there’s built-in pressure releases. So if he’s getting pressured, there are other guys who can get into the offense and initiate.”
But Dunn will miss at least two and possibly up to four weeks after suffering an “open dislocation” of his left index finger attempting to block Sterling Brown’s dunk with 8 minutes, 53 seconds left. The Bulls open the regular season Oct. 19 in Toronto.
“It’s very disappointing,” said Justin Holiday’s whose team-high 21 points featured five 3-pointers. “Especially Kris. He’s playing well and is going to play a lot. Unfortunately, injuries are part of the game. I hope he takes his time, gets healthy and helps us.”
Vincent Goodwill: Dunn dislocated his finger, headed straight to the locker room. From the reaction of his teammates, I’m guessing it wasn’t pretty
On Thursday, for the first time since injuring his right hand, point guard Kris Dunn was able to do some shooting without any protective bandaging. It is another step for Dunn, who originally hurt the hand in the Wolves’ victory over Orlando Jan. 30. He played briefly in the following game, vs. Cleveland, but has not played since.
Dunn said Thursday he hopes to be back before the All-Star Game break . The Wolves have four more games before the break, starting with Friday’s game against New Orleans.
Wolves rookie point guard Kris Dunn, who played in just two NBA Summer League games last month after sustaining a concussion during early action — thus missing out on the young Wolves’ run to the championship game — said Thursday he’s healthy and back on the court. Dunn, who is in New Jersey with other first-year league players for the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program, said in a phone interview Thursday, “I feel great. I’m back on court. I’m just working to get better for training camp, but I’m definitely back.”
