Alex Caruso injury update: Bulls guard to undergo surgery on fractured right wrist, will miss 6-8 weeks

Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso will undergo surgery on a fractured right wrist that he suffered against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night, and he will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks as a result, the Bulls announced on Saturday. 

Caruso suffered the injury on a fast break during the third quarter of the contest against Milwaukee. After the Bulls forced a turnover, rookie Ayo Dosunmu pushed the ball up the floor, but had Pat Connaughton blocking his path to the rim. Instead of trying to challenge Connaughton, Dosunmu turned back and dropped the ball off to a streaking Caruso who went hard to the basket. As Caruso was in mid-air, Bucks guard Grayson Allen came flying in to try and block the shot, but instead grabbed ahold of the Bulls guard and sent him spinning to the ground. 

Allen was assessed a flagrant 2 foul and ejected from the game as a result. You can see the play below: 

Caruso continued to play in the game, but his wrist was clearly bothering him, and now we know why. Unsurprisingly, Caruso and Bulls coach Billy Donovan were both unhappy with the play, and they expressed their feelings after the game. 

“Dude just grabbed me out of the air,” Caruso said of the play, via ESPN. “It’s kind of bulls–t. I don’t know what else you can do about it. I’m just glad that I didn’t have any major scary injuries right away.”
