Date:

Mike Dunleavy (back) will start Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

The Bulls will go with a starting lineup of Derrick Rose, E'Twuan Moore, Dunleavy, Taj Gibson and Pau Gasol for Wednesday's game. Dunleavy isn't likely to log much more than 15 minutes tonight, so there's no reason to activate him in any league.

Mike Dunleavy (back) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

Dunleavy's minutes will likely be constrained to the low-teens tonight, so he's not a great play in most leagues.
Feb 10 - 11:57 AM

Mike Dunleavy played 16 minutes against the Hornets on Monday with eight points, one rebound, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He may have played more in the fourth quarter, but the Bulls were blown out tonight. Dunleavy is likely going to have a minutes cap on him for most of this month even though they may need him to play more while Jimmy Butler is out. Dunleavy is more of a 16-team guy going forward.
Feb 8 - 9:15 PM

Mike Dunleavye will start against the Hornets on Monday.

It's his second game of the season after playing 14 minutes in Saturday. With Jimmy Butler (knee) and Derrick Rose (soreness) out, there might be some shots headed Dunleavy's way. He's still only an option in deep leagues.
Feb 8 - 6:29 PM

Mike Dunleavy, who made his season debut on Saturday, is confident that his conditioning will improve sooner rather than later.

"It's going to be a progression, build it up slowly," Dunleavy said. "I think [game condition] will come sooner rather than later. I put a lot of work in, feel pretty good about it. I'll be good." Dunleavy played just 14 minutes in his inaugural game, but his playing time will creep up so long as he doesn't have any setbacks after offseason surgery. When it does, he'll take minutes from Tony Snell, E'Twaun Moore and Doug McDermott.
Feb 8 - 8:48 AM

Mike Dunleavy made his season debut on Saturday with five points, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 14 minutes against the Wolves.

It wasn't a bad game for a guy who hasn't played in an NBA game in about nine months. Dunleavy is still only worth a look in deep leagues, especially with Jimmy Butler (knee) not dealing with a serious injury.
Feb 6 - 11:45 PM

Mike Dunleavy (back) will make his season debut against the Wolves on Saturday.

He said "I'm back" at his locker, so Mike apparently wants to be like Mike. His minutes should be limited with so much time away from NBA game action, so he's not someone worth owning in most leagues just yet. His return takes away from E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell.
Feb 6 - 7:06 PM

Mike Dunleavy (back) is a game-time call vs. the Wolves on Saturday.

Dunleavy admitted that he battled some soreness on Friday, so that's a little concerning since he hasn't even made his debut yet. If he is cleared to play, the Bulls will ease him back into action and his minutes will be limited.
Feb 6 - 6:37 PM

Mike Dunleavy (back) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

He has been targeting this game for his return, so he will likely make a decision after warming up with the team. His return can't come soon enough with Jimmy Butler going down with a knee injury, but he's only on the radar in deeper leagues for now. His minutes should be pretty limited if he's cleared to play.
Feb 6 - 2:21 PM

Mike Dunleavy (back) will not play Friday vs. the Nuggets, as expected.

He's targeting a return to the court for Saturday's matchup vs. the Timberwolves, and his imminent return to action will result in less minutes for E'Twaun Moore, Tony Snell and Doug McDermott. Dunleavy will likely be brought along very slowly, so he's not a great add in most leagues.

Mike Dunleavy (back) is set to return against the Timberwolves on Saturday, according to league sources.

Dunleavy had been practicing with Santa Cruz of the D-League, but is set to make his season debut on Saturday as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks. While Dunleavy isn't an add outside of deeper fantasy leagues, his return will cut into the minutes of Tony Snell and E'Twaun Moore.
Feb 4 - 9:07 AM

Mike Dunleavy (back) is hopeful to return over the weekend.

The Bulls get some good news here and they might need Dun-Dun if Jimmy Butler (knee) needs to miss more time. Dunleavy isn't the strongest add and he'll have his minutes monitored, but give him a look in very deep leagues. This means less run for E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell, assuming Butler is back.
Feb 3 - 8:52 PM

Mike Dunleavy (back) has been called up to join the Bulls.

He put in a couple practices with the D-League club and should be with the team in Denver on Friday. It's still unknown if he'll play or when he'll make his season debut. Once he's ready to go, he'll bump E'Twaun Moore from the starting lineup and Tony Snell will lose minutes.
Feb 3 - 4:57 PM

Mike Dunleavy (back) has been assigned to the D-League.

He will rehab with the Santa Cruz Warriors in the D-League and will return to the Bulls when he gets his legs under him. Dunleavy will eventually start at small forward for Chicago, but he's not worth stashing in most leagues because he won't be too involved in the offense.
