Billy Donovan drops a critical update on Alex Caruso’s ankle injury vs. Spurs Amidst a Victory Streak…

The Chicago Bulls, riding high on a four-game victory streak, faced a setback as Alex Caruso incurred a new ankle injury during the game against the San Antonio Spurs. The unfortunate incident occurred when Caruso accidentally stepped on Coby White’s foot while defending Devin Vassell, causing him to roll over the floor in pain. Despite the team’s recent success, concern looms over Caruso’s condition as he was escorted off the court with over 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

The left ankle injury forced Caruso out of the game, leaving the Bulls without his defensive prowess and hustle for the remainder of the match. Coach Billy Donovan, providing an initial update postgame, expressed uncertainty about the severity of Caruso’s injury, stating, “I don’t know how severe his ankle is.” Caruso, who has been dealing with a left toe strain this season, had already missed two games due to the same issue last week.

With Zach LaVine sidelined for the next three to four weeks, any injury to the Bulls’ remaining backcourt is significant. In the absence of Caruso’s defensive contributions, players like Ayo Dosunmu and Jevon Carter may see increased minutes.

Despite the setback, Caruso remained in good spirits after the game, showing signs of optimism despite the painful injury. The Bulls will anxiously await further examination to determine the extent of Caruso’s ankle injury and plan accordingly for upcoming competitive games.
