Chicago Bulls point guard Kris Dunn suffered an open dislocation of his left index finger during Friday’s exhibition game against the Milwaukee Bucks and many expected the 23-year-old to miss some time as a result.
After he met with a hand specialist, it has been determined Dunn will be out two-to-four weeks, according to a report by Bulls beat writer Sean Highkin.
I’m told the Bulls expect Kris Dunn to be out between 2-4 weeks after seeing a hand specialist yesterday.

Dunn was acquired by the Bulls from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the draft night trade involving Jimmy Butler. He was slated to be Chicago’s starting point guard during the rebuild process.
The Bulls will most likely start Jerian Grant until Dunn returns from his injury.
In 78 games last season with the Wolves, Dunn averaged 3.8 points in roughly 17 minutes of action.
