Mike Dunleavy SG/SF CHI 2 Months

Mike Dunleavy is not expected to be included in the sign-and-trade talks in a potential Pau Gasol deal.

The Bulls now have Houston involved in a three-team deal, which is expected to be done today. The Bulls will likely have to give up some of player to lower their cap number and make room. He'll have low-end fantasy value on the Bulls next season.

Mike Dunleavy played through a bruised thumb on Tuesday but made only 2-of-8 field goals to finish the Bulls' season-ending loss with five points, five rebounds and two assists.

The Wizards' defense deserves plenty of credit for Dunleavy's quiet night, and they held Chicago to just 43.2 percent shooting in the series. Dunleavy averaged 11.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists this season, while making 38.0 percent of his 3-point attempts, and he should play a similar role while earning $3.3 million in the final year of his contract next season.

Mike Dunleavy (thumb) practiced on Monday and will play in Game 5 vs. the Wizards on Tuesday.

He suffered a bruised left thumb on Sunday in Game 4 and there was never really much of a doubt he'd play in the upcoming home game. Dunleavy's 35-point outing in Game 3 is a big reason why the Bulls are still alive, but he cooled off in Game 4 with just six points. The injury came in the second half and didn't score before halftime, so the thumb injury had nothing to do with the weak line. He'll be in the starting lineup on Tuesday.

Mike Dunleavy (bruised thumb) will be in the Bulls' starting lineup for Game 5 on Tuesday.

X-rays came back negative and this is crucial news for the Bulls as they attempt to climb back from a 3-1 series deficit. Dunleavy is doing his part with postseason averages of 18.3 points on 54.1 percent shooting, 4.0 threes, 2.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.

Mike Dunleavy said he will play in Game 5 on Tuesday after suffering a left thumb injury on Sunday.

He had an X-ray, but did not reveal the results. It's probably fair to assume they results were negative and he's just dealing with a contusion. He had his hand in a cup of ice after the game and will likely receive treatment leading up to Tuesday. After a massive 35-point game in Game 3, Dunleavy cooled off with just six points in today's loss.

Mike Dunleavy was on fire during Game 3's 100-97 win at Washington on Friday, scoring 35 points with five boards, three assists and eight 3-pointers.

He shot 12-of-19 from the field for one of the most efficient lines of the postseason. Dunleavy set a franchise record for a playoff game with his eight treys, breaking Scottie Pippen's old record of seven back in 1997. He scored just 10.0 points per game in Games 1 and 2, so he'll likely be closer to that in Game 4 on Sunday. His hot shooting night dropped D.J. Augustin to just 24 minutes, down from 41 in Game 2.

Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points in the Bulls' 108-95 win over the Magic on Monday, hitting 8-of-11 shots (including three treys) with zero rebounds and five assists in 39 minutes.

Mike D is finishing the season on a strong note and he should be in most lineups if he's active on Wednesday. Joakim Noah nearly triple-doubled with 18 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block, and Carlos Boozer went for 13 and 12 with five assists in the win.

Mike Dunleavy bounced back in Monday's win over the Celtics, scoring 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting (3-of-6 from deep, 5-of-5 from the line) with three rebounds and three assists.

Despite some slower nights lately he has still been a solid late-round value over the last two weeks, averaging 11.1 points, 0.7 threes, 3.4 boards, 2.9 assists and 1.8 combined steals and blocks. He has hit just 37 percent of his field goals over that span, which means a regression in the right direction is probably in order. Given the upside he has shown beyond his recent production, owners should feel fairly good about picking him up.

Mike Dunleavy only shot 1-of-9 from the floor with one rebound and two assists in Friday's loss to the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy owners aren't expecting much since Dunleavy only shoots 42.6 percent from the field, but this was just brutal. Dunleavy's 32 minutes were his eighth consecutive game over 30 minutes, so there is at least some cold comfort in knowing that he's getting regular playing time. This game will likely count as Dunleavy's low-watermark for the month, but it's getting harder to own him in anything beyond deeper leagues.

Mike Dunleavy hit 5-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, four rebounds and four assists.

He's not going to knock your socks off on most nights, but he's playing very consistent basketball right now. Over his last five, Dunleavy is clocking 14.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.0 3-pointers.
