Hoiberg said that Bobby Portis and Kris Dunn felt "okay" after participating in the non-contact portions of yesterday's practice. "They are still a ways away," Hoiberg said. "We are not going to get too far ahead of ourselves with those guys, being injuries to their knees." Hoiberg said they'll both participate in workouts today that are "a lot more strenuous than the non contact stuff yesterday."

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.

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.”

Windhorst went on to say the Nets aren’t coming off asking for a big return for Durant in a trade. And that Brooklyn has no leverage with other teams, same as Durant has no leverage with the Nets. “I think what we have here is really a study of leverage. First off, the Nets do not have leverage in trade talks with other teams. They are not giving them the offers that they want. They see no reason to increase them. So, they’re not making any progress there,” said Windhorst. “Kevin Durant clearly does not have leverage with the Brooklyn Nets. He is asking for things: ‘Get me traded. Fire the coach. Fire the GM.’ He is being told no. So, when you have denied leverage, you have a stalemate.”
When it comes to Simmons, his unique skill set is incredibly enticing, but his best ability will be availability. Fortunately, according to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, that won’t be a problem for Simmons in 2022-23: “You and Kyrie and Ben Simmons — who, by the way, news flash here. I ran into Ben Simmons. He and I had a nice conversation … I support the brother. I had a problem with him not playing. That’s the past. He’s ready to go. He swears he’s ready to go.”
