Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points in the Bulls' 108-95 win over the Magic on Monday, hitting 8-of-11 shots (including three treys) with zero rebounds and five assists in 39 minutes.
Mike D is finishing the season on a strong note and he should be in most lineups if he's active on Wednesday. Joakim Noah nearly triple-doubled with 18 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block, and Carlos Boozer went for 13 and 12 with five assists in the win. Apr 14 - 11:06 PM

Date:

Mike Dunleavy scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Friday's win.

Dunleavy got quiet for a little bit but is surging back over his last four games, averaging 13.3 points with 1.8 treys, 1.0 steals, and 1.0 blocks while hitting half his shots and all of his free throws. That's good for top-50 value and Mike D should be owned in most formats.
Apr 5 - 1:22 AM

Mike Dunleavy bounced back in Monday's win over the Celtics, scoring 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting (3-of-6 from deep, 5-of-5 from the line) with three rebounds and three assists.

Despite some slower nights lately he has still been a solid late-round value over the last two weeks, averaging 11.1 points, 0.7 threes, 3.4 boards, 2.9 assists and 1.8 combined steals and blocks. He has hit just 37 percent of his field goals over that span, which means a regression in the right direction is probably in order. Given the upside he has shown beyond his recent production, owners should feel fairly good about picking him up.
Apr 1 - 1:03 AM

Mike Dunleavy only shot 1-of-9 from the floor with one rebound and two assists in Friday's loss to the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy owners aren't expecting much since Dunleavy only shoots 42.6 percent from the field, but this was just brutal. Dunleavy's 32 minutes were his eighth consecutive game over 30 minutes, so there is at least some cold comfort in knowing that he's getting regular playing time. This game will likely count as Dunleavy's low-watermark for the month, but it's getting harder to own him in anything beyond deeper leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:57 AM

Mike Dunleavy hit 5-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, four rebounds and four assists.

He's not going to knock your socks off on most nights, but he's playing very consistent basketball right now. Over his last five, Dunleavy is clocking 14.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.0 3-pointers.
Mar 19 - 9:38 PM

Mike Dunleavy had 16 points, six rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes on Saturday.

He's been pretty quiet recently, but had 21 points, seven boards and four 3-pointers on Thursday, despite taking 10 stitches above his right eye in that one. He's turning it on again and continues to start for the Bulls, but also benefitted from the fact Jimmy Butler hit just 1-of-11 shots tonight. If Dunleavy was dropped in your league, it might be time to grab him off the wire.
Mar 15 - 11:06 PM

Mike Dunleavy needed 10 stitches in the first half against the Rockets on Thursday, finishing with 21 points, seven boards, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He started the second half after a cut above his eye caused him to bleed badly on the court. Dunleavy has been a bit up and down for the Bulls, but he's starting to pick it up again after failing to knock down a triple in any of his previous four games. His upside is high enough to keep him owned in standard leagues.
Mar 13 - 10:10 PM

Mike Dunleavy returned to Thursday's game after receiving 10 stitches above his right eye.

He took another charge in the first 90 seconds of the second half and the stitches haven't made him gun shy. Dunleavy should be good to go the rest of the way and there are not any concussion concerns for the 33-year-old swingman.
Mar 13 - 8:39 PM

Mike Dunleavy ran to the locker room after an inadvertent elbow to the face from Chandler Parsons during the second quarter of Thursday's game.

He was bleeding profusely and will undoubtedly need stitches to seal up the cut above his eye. What's more, the elbow was so hard it might require Dunleavy to go through concussion testing. Tony Snell would be the main beneficiary while D.J. Augustin would get a slight bump. To be clear, it was a clean play by Parsons and his return is questionable.
Mar 13 - 7:59 PM

Mike Dunleavy kept exceeding expectations with 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in a whopping 42 minutes on Friday against the Mavs.

Dunleavy is playing massive minutes for Tom Thibodeau and he has taken over D.J. Augustin's scoring load for the Bulls. He's putting up mid-round numbers right now and owners are wise to ask how long he can stay healthy and/or keep this up, but selling high should be done with a bit of caution knowing the only threat to his role is his own health.
Feb 28 - 11:42 PM

Mike Dunleavy played well against his former team on Wednesday during a 103-83 win, scoring 15 points with four boards, three assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

He's heating up again with a 22-point game coming on Tuesday. Jimmy Butler did not play on Tuesday and was back tonight, so Wednesday's game is a better example of what Dunleavy's value looks like. He's probably worth owning in standard leagues despite Tony Snell getting more run.
Feb 27 - 12:17 AM

Mike Dunleavy played all 48 minutes of Tuesday's victory in Atlanta, finishing with 22 points, four 3-pointers, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals.

He made 6-of-15 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs, and his four assists don't tell the full story of his tremendous passing. It's been over a month since he cracked the 20-point plateau and the absence of Jimmy Butler (ribs) contributed to his big evening, but Dunleavy is a worthwhile fantasy option in most leagues with February averages of 9.6 points, 1.1 threes, 4.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks.
Feb 25 - 10:40 PM

The Bulls reportedly "[don't] appear willing" to trade Mike Dunleavy, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

The Rockets had expressed interest in Dunleavy but the Bulls are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference and it seems they'd rather keep him for a playoff run. The veteran swingman will earn a reasonable $3.3 million next season, in the final year of his contract, and the Bulls have no pressing need to unload him.
Feb 18 - 11:02 AM

Mike Dunleavy played 32 minutes against the Nets on Thursday with 14 points, five boards, one assist, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

He had a couple defensive lapses earlier in the game, but he was able to turn in one of his better lines in a long time. Still, Dunleavy averaged 10.6 points, 4.2 boards, 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.1 triples in his previous 10 games, so he's worth owning in standard leagues for his multiple-category production.
Feb 13 - 10:53 PM

Mike Dunleavy hit 7-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer on his way to 15 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

This was his highest scoring night in nine games, along with one of his best lines in recent memory. He was helped by the absence of Carlos Boozer (calf) and should be owned in most leagues. But whether you start him from week to week will be determined by your other options.
