Kris Dunn, 23, definitely made an impact during the Chicago Bulls' game against the Golden State Warriors on January 17 - just not one he ever expected!

The play occurred with 2:55 left in regulation after Dunn stole the ball from Warriors swingman Klay Thompson.

That means Dunn will be out indefinitely, and Jerian Grant gets the starting nod. On a steal and fastbreak, Dunn rose for a dunk but lost grip on the rim and fell face first into the court.

Chicago Bulls star Kris Dunn might be short a few teeth after a routine slam dunk went horribly wrong in the National Basketball Association.

The Bulls left after their afternoon practice for a three-game trip, starting in Atlanta on Saturday, but Dunn stayed back. Also, being that Valentine played reasonably well when he was in the starting lineup earlier this season (9.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per outing); he could certainly be a viable option for head coach Fred Hoiberg.

"He will be re-evaluated tomorrow at which time we will provide an update".

And he's in a lot of pain. "Kris has been as good as anybody on our team as far as helping us close out games". Hoiberg said the Bulls would be cautious in bringing him back to action.

After seeing Zach LaVine debut for them just last weekend, the Chicago Bulls are happy to have their young core complete and seeing them compete on the floor at the same time.
