Kris Dunn has never been one to play with fear, so even though his concussion triggered a three-week recovery period, it didn’t stop him from watching the scary fall against Golden State plenty of times. Perhaps it was therapeutic or even an exercise in realizing how lucky he was to retain all his teeth but Dunn is on the mend and hopes to be back on the floor soon as he returned to Bulls practice Wednesday afternoon. “I played football so as long as those were in there, I’m good,” Dunn said. Dunn has been ruled out for Friday’s game against the Timberwolves, but he hopes to be back before the All-Star break—which is over a week away. He’ll be wearing braces when he returns, along with a mouthguard, but said he wouldn’t do anything differently the next time he has a breakaway situation. “Nah, I’m going to go dunk it for sure,” Dunn said. “You can’t be scared when things like this happen. You just have to keep doing what you do.” Concussion symptoms came and went during the last few weeks, as Dunn has missed the last eight games, with the Bulls losing the last seven. Since the Bulls began their turnaround in early December, Dunn was a catalyst as he claimed the point guard spot.
