Chicago Bulls starting point guard, Ayo Dosunmu, is a doubt for Monday’s NBA matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers at the United Center.
Dosunmu was taken to the locker room in the third quarter of the Bulls’ 129-124 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. Dosunmu slipped and hit his head on Spurs’ Keldon Johnson’s knee and was taken into the locker room as per the NBA concussion protocol.
He however returned in the fourth quarter of the encounter but did not return to the court. Returning to the bench before the end of the game against the Spurs is an indication that the 22-year-old may be available for Monday’s meeting with the Sixers but the Bulls are yet to release a medical report on the Illinois native.
Before exiting the game, Dosunmu had 12 points, three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes. DeMar Derozan led the Bulls in scoring with 33 points, one rebound and one assist while Coby White had 19 points from the bench.
The Bulls are seventh in the Eastern Conference with three wins and three losses this season. They will be hoping to have Dosunmu back for the tie against the Sixers as they are short on competent point guards with Lonzo Ball and Zack LaVine out due to a knee injury.
