Bulls guard out at least 4 weeks with MCL sprain

Bulls guard out at least 4 weeks with MCL sprain

With Kris Dunn out, the Bulls' Cameron Payne (22) wants to make the most of more playing time at point guard.

But this season was supposed to be different.

Dunn averaged 13.4 points and 6.0 assists for Chicago last season after struggling as a rookie with Minnesota.

For the Chicago Bulls: Kris Dunn (left MCL sprain), Lauri Markkanen (right elbow sprain) and Denzel Valentine (left ankle sprain) are all out for tonight's game.

So, what does Fred Hoiberg do now?


Both scenarios played out against the Mavericks at American Airlines Arena as the Bulls got another huge effort from LaVine yet lacked the closing power to bring home a victory. "When you have a guy who really made strides over the course of last season and the summer he had and the way he played during training camp, it's hard to miss him". The front office showed their level of interest in Harrison's potential by signing him to a two-year National Basketball Association contract which includes a guaranteed salary for this season. The 6-foot-4 point guard comes on the heels of the Tyler Ulis signing and joins holdover Ryan Arcidiacono. Before this season, last year was his hottest start getting two straight to start the year. "Problem is, he's generously listed at 5'10" which could create some serious issues at the defensive end. Arcidiacono and Harrison did not see action against the Mavs.

When asked what he could provide for the Bulls, Harrison was straight to the point.

LaVine finished with a game-high 34 points on 11-of-15 shooting.

One of the major storylines developing for the Bulls this season is not one they'd like to have.

It will be up to Parker to step up now more than ever to make up for the loss of Dunn. That's why you should expect to see Harrison take on a significant role in the upcoming games, since he's the only point guard now available on the roster that has the physical skills to replicate in some fashion what Dunn brings on the defensive end. Unfortunately for the Bulls, things might get worse before they get better, as they'll now be without their best point guard for at least a month.
