Bulls G Alex Caruso sidelined with broken wrist after Grayson Allen foul

| Business News Today | Local News

Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso will undergo surgery next week to repair his broken right wrist after he was shot by Grayson Allen during the third quarter of Friday night’s 94-90 loss at Milwaukee.

The team said Caruso will be reevaluated in six to eight weeks. It’s another blow for Chicago (28-16) after it was announced Thursday that goaltender Lonzo Ball needed arthroscopy on his left knee.


Caruso, who turns 28 on Feb. 28, is averaging 8.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 28 games in his first season with Chicago.

Caruso was heading for the basket on Friday night when a hard foul from Allen landed him on his right side. Caruso lay on the ground for a few minutes, although he stayed in the game to attempt the free throws resulting from Allen’s flagrant foul 2.

“For Alex to be in the air like that, and for (Allen) to take him down like that, it could have ended (Caruso’s) career,” Bulls coach Billy Donovan said after the loss. . “And (Allen) has a history of that. For me, it was really, it was really dangerous. And I really hope the league looks at something like that carefully because (Allen) could have been really, really seriously hurt him.”

Caruso said after the match that his wrist was “a little bumped” and he should see how it feels in the next few days.

“The dude just caught me in the air,” Caruso said.

Allen served a one-game suspension during the 2016-17 season while at Duke after tripping an opposing player for the third time in a calendar year. He was ejected from an NBA Summer League game in 2019 after committing two flagrant fouls.


The Bucks acquired Allen from the Memphis Grizzlies in the offseason. He spent two seasons in Memphis after playing his rookie season with the Utah Jazz.

The game was originally considered a common shooting foul, but was upgraded to a blatant 2 after a replay. Flagrant 2 resulted in an automatic ejection.
