(WTNH)–New London’s Kris Dunn looked terrific in his first two games with the Minnesota Timberwolves’ summer league team.
The former Providence College star scored 27 points and made three steals in his debut, and then scored 21 on 9-of-17 shooting in game two. He ranks third in the league at 24 points per game so far, is shooting 54.3% (19-for-35) and ripping down seven rebounds per game.
In short, he’s been fantastic.
But all of the excitement has been tempered after the 6-4 guard was hit in the jaw by fellow rookie and Raptors big man Jakob Poeltl. He was diagnosed with a concussion on Monday.
Dunn missed the Wolves’ game Monday, and could be held out for the rest of the summer.
“It depends on if he passes the tests,” Wolves head coach Tom Thibodeau told the Minnesota Star Tribune. “If he does, we’ll re-evaluate whether he plays or we hold him out.”
Dunn, the former state player of the year at New London High School, was the fifth overall pick in the NBA Draft in June.
