The Chicago Bulls will be adding a key piece back to their rotation.
After missing the past few weeks, point guard Kris Dunn is set to return to the Bulls for their game against the Toronto Raptors just ahead of the NBA All-Star Break on Wednesday.

The Bulls also tweeted out that Dunn will start tonight’s game and will play about 20 minutes. The point guard will travel to Los Angeles and take part in the Rising Stars Challenge Game on Friday night.
Dunn is averaging 13.7 points, 6.4 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game this season while averaging 29.6 minutes in those contests. He’s a key piece in the July trade that sent Jimmy Butler to Minnesota in exchange for Dunn, LaVine and the rights to rookie Lauri Markkanen. Dunn hasn’t played since January 17.
The Bulls recently welcomed Zach LaVine back and will have the chance to see what their trio of young talent can do.
