Dunn Dislocates Teeth, Suffers Concussion

Share

Chicago Bulls point guard Kris Dunn "dislocated" his front teeth after falling face-first onto the court following a successful slam dunk.

Dunn won't travel with the team to Atlanta.

After the game, the Bulls' official Twitter account sent out an update on Dunn's status. But he also suffered one of the worst injuries you'll ever see take place during an National Basketball Association game when he went up for a breakaway dunk with about three minutes remaining in the contest and ended up falling flat on his face after making it.

Nick Friedell is the Chicago Bulls beat reporter for ESPN Chicago.

The Bulls' initial postgame evaluation indicated Dunn didn't have any concussion symptoms, but upon re-evalation a day later, he's been placed in the concussion protocol.

Dunn will have to pass a series of tests before being cleared to play.

It's insane enough that Dunn didn't take any dental damage from this fall, but to then take a chunk of floor out with him? "He will be re-evaluated tomorrow". He didn't lose a tooth but he chipped and dislocated his teeth.

He said after the game: 'There was a good little chunk that he took out of the floor. "He's being evaluated. Tough kid", Hoiberg said. He was down for about five minutes before he was able to get up and walk. "Hope he can come back quick and strong, without any knock to his confidence, he has been balling his way into consideration for most improved".
