Dunleavy (ankle) still not ready to run

CHICAGO -- Mike Dunleavy will miss Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards as he continues to work his way back from a right ankle injury, and his return to the floor remains unclear. Dunleavy, who injured the ankle during a New Year's Day win over the Denver Nuggets, spent some time after practice taking some extra shots -- but he admitted he hasn't been able to run since sustaining the injury.

"I'm feeling a little better," Dunleavy said. "Just getting there. It's definitely been a process. I'm starting to do a little bit more on the court, but I got to work my way up to being able to run so that's sort of the challenge right now."

Dunleavy had an MRI Saturday and said those results came back without showing a major setback. He is hoping to be able to start running "in the next couple days."

"I'm just now past the point of hurting to walk," he said. "So I'm more comfortable walking now. I'm not yet to the point I can run without pain."

Rookie Doug McDermott also remains out, recovering from right knee surgery.
