K.C. Johnson, who covers the Bulls for the Chicago Tribune, tweeted the following, confirming Dunleavy's status.
Dunleavy practiced. Will play Tuesday.Dunleavy suffered a bruised thumb on Sunday in the second half and didn't score before halftime. He played 35 minutes so there wasn't much doubt that he'd play in Game 5 as the Bulls face a must win situation. Should Dunleavy's thumb act up, expect Tony Snell, who had two points in 13 minutes on Sunday, to get extra minutes.
