Bulls say Kris Dunn does not appear to have concussion

Point guard Chris Dunn made a dunk and dislocated his teeth on the floor during the Chicago Bulls' loss to the Golden State Warriors. He stole the ball from Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson, going a full head of steam for a fastbreak dunk. The Bulls announced Dunn dislocated teeth as well.

Dunn swings to an nearly horizontal angle and fails to protect his face as he crashes towards the ground.

As the Chicago Bulls player leapt into the air, hung on top of the hoop and dropped the ball through the net, he probably didn't think twice about hanging off the rim.

Kris Dunn did not have the time to brace his fall, so his face took the brunt of the damage. "He will be re-evaluated tomorrow". Dunn is tied for 3rd in scoring for the squad this season, averaging 13.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.1 steals in 29.7 minutes per game. Vincent Goodwill is reporting that after those tests were concluded, the team discovered that Dunn also had concussion symptoms. "He's a really tough kid".

The Bulls are expected to update Dunn's condition on Thursday.

"We don't know for sure [if it's a concussion]", the coach added. The Bulls couldn't complete the comeback bid, as Golden State closed out a 119-112 victory for their franchise-record-tying 14th consecutive win on the road.
