Alex Caruso’s wrist is broken. He is going to miss the next 6-8 weeks of action for the Bulls. Grayson Allen, the person who knocked Caruso out of the air and caused his injury, has been suspended by the NBA for one game. If this seems a bit imbalanced to you, it’s because you have common sense.

Spinning?! You know who was spinning, Caruso who was already horizontal after Allen flew into him like one of those Angry Birds in the Geico commercial. Then Allen attempts to explain away the blow he delivered with his other arm with some excuse about trying to retrieve the ball. That’s a nonsense explanation, because he never…
