Providence was worried that guard Kris Dunn would miss time after injuring the same right shoulder he had surgery on last season during Friday night’s exhibition win over Division III Rhode Island College, but Dunn won’t miss very much time according to a report from the Providence Journal.
Providence head coach Ed Cooley told the Providence Journal that Dunn’s shoulder is “sore” and that he’s day-to-day as his status remains unclear for this Friday’s opener against Boston College. Dunn, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, had surgery to repair a torn labrum in the summer of 2012 and missed time until December as the former McDonald’s All-American averaged 5.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 25 games last season for Providence.
The injury shouldn’t be too significant for the Friars as Dunn and shooting guard Bryce Cotton figure to be one of the better backcourts in the Big East this season.
