Mike Dunleavy kept the Bulls close throughout Sunday's loss in Cleveland, scoring 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and one steal.
He made all four of his free throws and only turned the ball over once, richly rewarding any owner who deployed him in a tough road matchup vs. the Cavs. The Bulls face the Magic on Wednesday, a team which has allowed opponents to shoot 36.9 percent from downtown this season (second-highest in the league), so feel free to leave Dunleavy in your active lineup.

Mike Dunleavy scored two points with six rebounds, three assists and no turnovers in 25 minutes against the Hornets on Monday.

His minutes did not drop as much as expected, but one would think he's in jeopardy of losing minutes to Nikola Mirotic once the Bulls get Joakim Noah (rest) back. Dunleavy can be dropped in most leagues with Jimmy Butler ready to roll.
Mar 23 - 11:58 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored 21 points during a 108-92 win over the Raptors on Friday with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

It's his second game in a row with 21 points and he's really coming on. However, Jimmy Butler (elbow) is getting closer, so Dunleavy won't be asked to score nearly as much. His fantasy owners should be expecting his numbers to drop off soon.
Mar 21 - 1:39 AM

Mike Dunleavy scored 21 points against the Pacers on Wednesday with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He scored a combined 17 points in his previous four games, so this came out of nowhere. Dunleavy is likely going to lose some fantasy value once Jimmy Butler (elbow) gets back, so there's no need to run to the wire to grab him right now.
Mar 19 - 1:14 AM

Mike Dunleavy played 26 minutes against the Hornets on Friday with three points, one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

As ugly as the low point total looks, he still put up a stat in every other category. Dunleavy lost some playing time due to not playing well in his previous two, so there's chance his minutes stay in the mid-20s. The Bulls are not being consistent on the wing and don't have a great schedule anyway, so it's probably best to just steer clear of trying to capitalize on the Jimmy Butler (elbow) injury.
Mar 13 - 10:04 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored 12 points on 3-of-5 shooting Sunday, with two 3-pointers, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers through 29 minutes of action.

Dunleavy is worth a look in standard leagues for those seeking some 3-point shooting. He's notched at least one 3-pointer in his past six outings, and the Bulls could really use his offense with both Derrick Rose (knee) and Jimmy Butler (elbow) out. If Dunleavy is still available in your league, and you're holding onto Tony Snell, it would make sense to make the switch.
Mar 8 - 5:53 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored 21 points against the Thunder on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He did miss a breakaway dunk, but Dun-Dun clearly looks to be over his ankle injury from before the break. He's been over 30 minutes in each of his last four games with two 21-point games and only eight points combined in his other two. Dunleavy has a higher upside than Tony Snell and he should be owned in standard leagues. Hopefully he can stay healthy.
Mar 5 - 11:24 PM

Mike Dunleavy finally got on board with 21 points, five threes, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 32 minutes in Friday's win.

This is Mike D's first real solid night since returning from his ankle injury, and the season-long rankings are probably the best place for owners to gauge his value. He has returned top 135-170 value in 28.6 mpg this season, and with Derrick Rose out and Taj Gibson possibly missing time in the short-term, he could end up with some late-round value to finish the year. In 9-cat leagues he's definitely worth an add and in 8-cat leagues he's simply worth a look.
Feb 28 - 2:33 AM

Mike Dunleavy did not score in his 20 minutes of action on Wednesday, adding one rebound, two assists, one steal and two turnovers.

He played 20 minutes on Monday, which was down from 28 minutes on Saturday. Dunleavy will likely see an increase to his playing time and he does have a history of being a top-125 guy with 25-28 minutes, so fantasy owners should keep an eye on him. That said, there's really no need to add him right now because none of your competition has him on their radar just yet.
Feb 26 - 12:23 AM

Mike Dunleavy scored 15 points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers against the Suns on Saturday.

He finally had a good game. Dunleavy has been hurt a lot this season and obviously the emergence of Jimmy Butler has really hurt his chance to produce. Dunleavy is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Feb 21 - 11:27 PM

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) is being listed as probable for Friday's game against Detroit.

Dunleavy returned from his ankle injury before the All-Star break, so there's no reason to think he won't be available for Friday's game. He can be viewed as a 3-point specialist (1.8 three-pointer per game) in deep leagues, but he's not a great guy to own in standard leagues with averages of 9.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game.
Feb 19 - 7:02 PM

Mike Dunleavy logged 28 minutes in his second game back from a serious ankle injury, finishing a win vs. Cleveland with five points on 2-of-7 shooting, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and zero turnovers.

Dunleavy is averaging a shade under 30 minutes per game this season. That hasn't translated to reliable production, however, and he's a low-end fantasy option whose primary value lies in 3-pointers (1.8) with a trickle of points (9.4), rebounds (3.7) and assists (1.7).
Feb 12 - 10:46 PM

Mike Dunleavy said that his ankle is feeling good after returning to action on Tuesday against the Kings.

"I felt real good," Dunleavy said. "Physically, everything was good. I was pleased. I felt like my rhythm and my conditioning was fine. So hopefully I just keep building and going in the right direction." He had missed 19 straight games due to a stubborn ankle sprain, so the Bulls were glad to have him back in their lineup. Dunleavy averaged close to 30 minutes per game prior to his injury, so with the recent concern of Jimmy Butler's shoulder he could see some big minutes on the wing Thursday against the Cavaliers. If you need 3-pointers, Dunleavy is more than worth a look in deeper leagues.
Feb 11 - 9:41 AM

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) started Tuesday's game and posted five points, one 3-pointer, one rebound and three assists in 24 minutes during his long-awaited return.

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) started Tuesday's game and posted five points, one 3-pointer, one rebound and three assists in 24 minutes during his long-awaited return. He missed the past 19 games and his return should help settle down the Bulls, who didn't win more than two straight games in his absence. His return bumped Tony Snell back to the bench, where he unexpectedly blew up for a career-high 24 points. Go figure.
Feb 10 - 10:47 PM

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) will start Tuesday's game in his return after missing Chicago's past 19 games.

Tony Snell heads back to the bench and he should be cut by anyone who picked him up for temporary value in Dunleavy's absence. Dunleavy will likely be rusty and his minutes could be held in check, so he's best suited to fantasy benches until after the All-Star break.
