Grayson Allen Suspension Handed Down For Breaking Alex Caruso's Wrist

The hit was a hard, flagrant, mid-air take-down that broke Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso's wrist. But in its wisdom, the NBA has deemed that the Milwaukee Bucks Grayson Allen should only serve a one-game suspension. 

And the Bucks were unhappy with the decision. 

“We disagree with the suspension," read an official Bucks statement. "We support Grayson and look forward to him rejoining our team for Friday’s game vs. New York."

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer added, "Competition is tough and there's things that happen in the games that are unfortunate. I know that Caruso is gonna miss some time. and I feel for him. I don't want that for any of our opponents, for anybody. But there's nothing that was done intentional."

Caruso is out 6-8 weeks with the broken wrist, and the Bulls' backcourt is now decimated, as Lonzo Ball is also out that long with his own injury

The light-handed suspension, as expected, isn't going over well with many, but Adrian Wojnarowski noted that the only reason Allen received even a one-game suspension is because of Caruso's resultant injury.

We'll surely be hearing more about this in the days ahead. And the next Bulls/Bucks game, by the way, is March 4th, in Chicago — exactly 6 weeks from the incident, possibly in time for Caruso to return. 

Mark your calendars.
