After nearly missing a month due to a concussion, Chicago Bulls point guard Kris Dunn will return to the court on Wednesday against the Toronto Raptors.
Dunn, who suffered the concussion on Jan. 17 against the Golden State Warriors, is expected to be brought along slowly in his first game back. The team already announced he'd be limited to around 20 minutes tonight.
DFS owners can't count on Dunn in his first game back, but he's an absolute fantasy starter when the second half rolls around and he returns to his normal starting role and plays 30-plus minutes per night.
Before the concussion, Dunn averaged 14.7 points, 7.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game with a 42.4 field-goal percentage in nine January games. He performed even better in December with averages of 14.9 points, eight assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.9 steals and a 43.3 field-goal percentage.
A healthy Zach LaVine and further development from Lauri Markkanen give Chicago a young trio who will grow and shine in the second half of the season, helping feed each other's numbers and all being reliable fantasy options in season-long leagues.
