Kris Dunn says he’s fully healthy after Summer League concussion


The Timberwolves weren’t able to get as long a look at No. 5 overall pick Kris Dunn as they’d hoped to at Summer League in Las Vegas — he played just two games after suffering a concussion. But with training camp about six weeks away, he says he’s fully recovered from that episode and will be ready to go this season.

From Michael Rand of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

Dunn, who is in New Jersey with other first-year league players for the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program, said in a phone interview Thursday, “I feel great. I’m back on court. I’m just working to get better for training camp, but I’m definitely back.”

It’s still unclear what Dunn’s role will be on the Timberwolves. New head coach and team president Tom Thibodeau is a huge fan and could look to move Ricky Rubio at some point to clear the way for Dunn to start at point guard, but that’s far from a given. It will be one of the storylines to watch in camp for the team that’s looking to make a major leap from last season’s 29-win campaign.
