Mike Dunleavy (concussion) returned to practice on Sunday.
This means that he will likely be good to go for Monday's game vs. the Raptors. He's only averaging 15.6 minutes per game, so he's not a fantasy option. Dec 4 - 12:53 PM

Mike Dunleavy (concussion) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

No revenge game for Dunleavy. With him out, Iman Shumpert, Richard Jefferson and maybe J.R. Smith could get some extra run. There's not much to Dunleavy sitting out from a fantasy perspective.
Dec 2 - 6:42 PM

Mike Dunleavy (concussion protocol) is doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Cavs.

This will be the second straight game Dunleavy has missed due to a concussion suffered earlier this week. Channing Frye, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert will likely divvy up Dunleavy's minutes.
Dec 2 - 1:08 PM

Mike Dunleavy (concussion) is out against the Clippers on Thursday.

The injury likely happened when Dunleavy collided with Giannis Antetokounmpo on Tuesday. The Cavs will likely have to give a couple extra minutes to J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and maybe mix in more Channing Frye to offset the missing Dunleavy.
Dec 1 - 7:00 PM

Mike Dunleavy will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

Dunleavy got the start sans J.R. Smith (ankle) on Sunday, but didn't do much of anything, so Tyronn Lue will be rolling with Richard Jefferson in the starting lineup for tonight's game. Dunleavy is not a viable option in any scenario.
Nov 15 - 5:26 PM

Mike Dunleavy did a whole lot of nothing in a spot-start for J.R. Smith (ankle) on Sunday, going 1-of-6 from the field on his way to two points, three boards and one block in 17 minutes.

Dunleavy was basically a decoy on offense to help space the floor, but he’s not going to see a ton of opportunity in Cleveland this season, not even when he gets spot starts. Leave him on the wire.
Nov 13 - 5:55 PM

Mike Dunleavy is starting against the Hornets on Sunday.

He's getting the start with J.R. Smith on the shelf with an ankle injury. Dunleavy has season averages of 4.4 points and 0.9 triples in 16.1 minutes, and the Cavs will likely use a committee approach to soak up Smith's minutes. There should be better options for fantasy owners.
Nov 13 - 2:00 PM

Mike Dunleavy came off the bench and hit 2-of-3 shots for four points, four rebounds, two assists and three steals.

The steals were nice, but his only chance at success will be in blowouts. And since this game was a blowout, the odds aren't in his favor this season.

Mike Dunleavy said that his back injury is in the rearview mirror.

"I feel good. Last year at this time was not so good. But I got that behind me," Dunleavy said. "I feel great, a whole lot better than I did last year. Looking forward to a healthy season." He missed the first 49 games of the 2015-16 season because of the back issue, and it's worth noting that it still requires some maintenance. Dunleavy should have a role with the Cavs because of his versatility and 3-point shooting, but won't be a fantasy factor unless the Cavs can't agree to a deal with J.R. Smith.
Sep 30 - 10:22 AM

The Bulls have agreed to trade Mike Dunleavy to the Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal is a result of Chicago's need to shed salaries, clearing room for Dwyane Wade. Dunleavy is 35 years old, but he can be effective in a limited role and hasn't shot below 38.0 percent from downtown since the 2009-10 season. He'll earn $4.8 million this season but his 2016-17 salary is only guaranteed for $1.7 million, and he's a nice addition to the defending champion's roster, especially if J.R. Smith leaves in free agency. In fantasy leagues he's nothing more than a 3-point specialist.
Jul 6 - 10:08 PM

ESPN's Nick Friedell says that the Bulls might look to move Mike Dunleavy in the coming weeks.

In case you missed it, Taj Gibson could also be on the move as the Bulls look to restructure their roster. Dunleavy is on the books for $4.8 million next season, but the Bulls probably wouldn't get much in return for the veteran sharpshooter. Doug McDermott should see more minutes on the wings if Dunleavy is moved.

Mike Dunleavy (rest) will not play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

The Bulls have missed the playoffs, giving Dunleavy little incentive to suit up for a game against the 76ers. Doug McDermott and Tony Snell figure to split the bulk of Dunleavy's minutes tonight, with McDermott being the more attractive DFS target.
Apr 13 - 12:02 PM

Mike Dunleavy played nine minutes against the Rockets on Thursday with one point.

He was really bad and James Harden put him on a few highlights. Dunleavy figures to lose run to Doug McDermott and can be dropped almost everywhere.
Apr 1 - 12:00 AM

Mike Dunleavy scored 10 points with two rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

He doesn't have a minutes cap anymore and he's someone to check out for owners needing an edge. Over his last five, Dunleavy averaged 7.2 points, 2.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.6 treys on 34.3 percent from the field. He's fairly cold and does have five games coming up, so he's more of an option for owners who were just dealt some blows due to injuries.
Mar 26 - 9:51 PM

Mike Dunleavy (illness) started Wednesday's 117-96 loss to the Wizards, but he shot 0-of-4 from the field in 18 scoreless minutes.

Dunleavy may still have been bothered by the illness that caused him to miss Monday's game -- he came in shooting 52.3 percent in March, averaging 10.5 points, 2.0 triples, 4.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists, good enough for consideration in 14-team leagues. He was 0-of-4 from the field tonight but should bounce back vs. the Nets' defense on Thursday.
