CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bulls guard Kris Dunn is out indefinitely after being placed into the NBA’s concussion protocol following a fall during a game that ended up with him dislocating two front teeth.
The Bulls said Thursday (Friday, PHL time) that Dunn’s two teeth have been splinted with braces. He was re-evaluated for concussion symptom and will not travel with the team to Atlanta for Saturday’s game.
Dunn was injured Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time) during a home loss to Golden State. He made a fast-break dunk with 2:55 left, but landed awkwardly on the play and his face slammed into the floor.
