More on Kris Dunn Injury

Nick Friedell: Fred is hopeful that Kris Dunn will be back at practice full-time early next week. Fred reiterates Bulls will support Dunn if he wants to play in Rising Stars Game at All-Star weekend.
KC Johnson: Kris Dunn, wearing braces, in first comments since concussion: “Scary fall. But I played football. I’ll be OK.” No timetable for return.
Mike McGraw: #Bulls say Kris Dunn was not a full participant at @windycitybulls practice today. Sounds like he’s just getting back to physical activity post-concussion.
Mike McGraw: Hoiberg says Kris Dunn (concussion) still has symptoms, no timetable for return; LaVine’s minutes expected to rise to 26-28 on Fri vs Lakers. #Bulls
Vincent Goodwill: Kris Dunn will also miss Monday’s game against the Pelicans with a concussion
Vincent Goodwill: After a second round of tests, Kris Dunn has been diagnosed with a concussion, according to sources. As of now he won't be traveling with the team and will be evaluated at a later date
Scott Agness: Late change to the Bulls’ lineup: Kris Dunn is out with left patella tendonitis. Jerian Grant will start.
Darnell Mayberry: Hoiberg says Dunn will be primary backup PG if he is available tonight. No real minute restriction. Depends how he feels. #BullsNation
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."
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.”

However, the topic will be discussed in the offseason, and the league will explore ways to address bench decorum during games in real time, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
