Bulls' Dunleavy won't play Saturday, may miss 'a little bit of time'

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Bulls starting small forward Mike Dunleavy will miss his first game since December 2012 on Saturday against the Boston Celtics, and it sounds like it will be an extended absence. 

Dunleavy was wearing a walking boot on his right foot Saturday after hurting his ankle Thursday against the Denver Nuggets. He told the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson that he could be out "a little bit of time."

Dunleavy has been something of an ironman for an injury-prone Bulls squad the past two seasons and is averaging 9.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 29.5 minutes a game this year.
