Grayson Allen dirty play timeline: Alex Caruso injury only adds to Bucks guard’s ugly history

| Local Business News | Usa news

The Bulls announced on Saturday that Alex Caruso would need surgery after fracturing his right wrist on a flagrant 2 foul by Bucks guard Grayson Allen.

Caruso was pushing the ball in transition in Chicago’s game against Milwaukee on Friday night when Allen went up for a block and ripped Caruso’s arm off.

Allen was automatically kicked out of the game, and now Caruso is set to miss 6-8 weeks due to the injury he suffered during the dirty game. It comes as a tough break for Caruso, who has played a major role as a defensive lockout stopper for the Bulls this season.

The play also adds to a long list of similar antics by the Bucks guard. Here’s a look at how Allen earned his dirty reputation.

Timeline of Grayson Allen’s Dirty Games

For starters, Allen has a five-minute(!) compilation of dirty plays and YouTube moments from his time at Duke. That alone shows that there is a track record here.

It took several dirty plays for Duke to act, but finally, in 2016, Allen was suspended “indefinitely” after he openly tried to trip an Elon player as he walked to the basket.

It was far from the first case — it was his third tripping incident on his own, in fact — as he had already been caught tripping a Louisville player the previous season. He also had a few other low-light moments, like throwing a random hip check on a fast break against North Carolina that resulted in a flag 1 foul.

The shameful part is that Allen’s “indefinite” suspension only lasted one game.

That trend wasn’t crushed once he arrived in the NBA, however.

During the 2019 NBA Summer League, Allen was ejected from a game after committing not one, but two flagrant fouls on Celtics forward Grant Williams.

This continued in 2020 when Allen and Hawks star guard Trae Young had a back-and-forth exchange on Twitter about a play Young considered dirty.

Allen didn’t seem to agree with Young’s assessment.

Allen didn’t get a chance to comment on his most recent incident, but Caruso shared his thoughts with the media after the game.

“The dude kind of caught me in the air. It was kind of a Bulls-” the Bulls guard said.

Now that Caruso’s injury has been confirmed, it will be interesting to see if the NBA follows up with a suspension for the Bucks guard. Check back for updates on the situation.
