Bulls Alex Caruso suffers ankle sprain after collision with teammate Andre Drummond

The Chicago Bulls faced a lapse in their recent game despite the return of Andre Drummond and Ayo Dosunmu, who had missed several games due to injuries. This time, Alex Caruso suffered a foot injury during their recent game as he collided with teammate Andre Drummond.

Caruso was injured during the second quarter of the Bulls’ game against the Hawks, which was a closely contested game. As the game was moving quickly, Andre Drummond, the 6-foot-11 and 280-pound giant, accidentally collided with Caruso while attempting to get back on defense. This collision caused Caruso to fall hard, and he appeared to have injured his left foot.

Caruso had to leave the game right after getting injured. He returned for a bit in the second and third quarters but had to go again in the third. The Bulls won the game with Drummond 131-116, but Caruso’s injury has remained a cause for concern.

Before getting injured, Caruso was doing well in the game. He scored six points by making two three-pointers, gave two assists, grabbed two rebounds, and managed to steal the ball once, all in just 17 minutes of play.

After the game, Caruso said, “(Drummond) caught me on my right foot that kind of gave out (and) my left one tried to catch me.” “Just kind of tweaked my ankle a little bit. That’s the same one I was dealing with for the last couple weeks of the season that we managed and figured out.”

Alex Caruso has a ‘significant’ left ankle sprain and is doubtful for Friday

Caruso’s availability for the Bulls’ upcoming play-in tournament game against the Heat on Friday is in question. Given his recent injury and the potential risk of exacerbating it by playing, his participation remains uncertain.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Caruso sustained a significant left ankle injury when Drummond accidentally stepped on him during the game.

In the post-game presser, the player was asked if he would be available for their next game in South Beach. In response, the 30-year-old sounded quite optimistic, despite his condition. He said, “I do (expect to play) until I can’t.”

“In the coming days, we’ll see how it goes. My attitude is to keep playing until my body tells me otherwise,” Caruso added.
