Bulls guard Alex Caruso is approaching a return from a fractured wrist he suffered during a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks on Jan. 21.
This injury came as the result of a flagrant foul from Bucks guard Grayson Allen as he threw an airborne Caruso to the floor on a breakaway layup.
In addition to being thrown out of the game, the former Duke star also received a one-game suspension from the NBA.
As a result of this incident, Allen is now public enemy No. 1 in Chicago. When then Bucks came to town earlier this month, the fourth-year guard was welcomed by a chorus of boos raining down from the Bulls faithful.
While Caruso initially called the foul "kind of bulls***," it appears he's not holding any grudges. According to Bulls insider K.C. Johnson, the former Los Angeles Laker says there's "no anger" over the injury, despite the last six weeks of recovery being “pretty frustrating.”
Through his collegiate and NBA careers, Allen has become well known for his controversial actions on the court. Caruso says Allen never reached out to him after the injury.
Fortunately, Caruso will return to the lineup tonight when the Bulls battle the Cavs.
The Bulls currently hold the No. 4 seed in the East with a 40-26 record.
