Finally, after the dreaded 6-8 weeks, Alex Caruso is nearly back. He’s been out since late January due to a broken wrist. Caruso had surgery to repair the fracture that resulted from Grayson Allen’s dirty play, and now it appears he’s nearing a return. The doctors cleared him for full-contact practice and rejoining the Chicago Bulls.

Alex Caruso’s Defensive Spark

Since losing Caruso, the Bulls have barely stayed over .500. In 21 games, they sport a record of 11-10 and desperately need their key defensive players back.

Since the loss to Milwaukee in January, Bulls’ opponents have outscored them 2,443 to 2,438. The five-point difference doesn’t seem like a lot, but the truth is stored within the individual games. The Bulls have four double-digit losses in the timeframe.

One of those losses was the very next game after Caruso’s injury. It was a disgusting 114-95 loss against the Orlando Magic. Furthermore, two of those double-digit losses have come during the Bulls’ current five-game losing streak.

To say getting Alex Caruso back would help is an understatement. His skills alone provide not only defensive prowess for the Chicago Bulls on the court but a motivational spark. Now that the doctors cleared Caruso for full-contact practice, the Bulls are getting close to regaining their full health.
