What Can Bulls Do To Take Next Step? ‘Stay Healthy,’ Says Alex Caruso

While making splashier offseason moves wouldn’t have hurt, steering clearer of the injury bug is the single most important thing the Chicago Bulls can do to get ahead next season. And that reality isn’t lost on Alex Caruso.

During an appearance on “The Old Man & the Three” podcast, Caruso discussed what the team needs to do to improve upon its 46-win season that yielded the franchise’s first playoff berth in five years.

“Stay healthy,” Caruso, who missed 42 games last season due to various injuries, told hosts J.J. Reddick and Tommy Alter. “Get healthy. Stay healthy.”

Like Alex Caruso, Lonzo Ball (51), Patrick Williams (65), and Zach LaVine (16) each missed a chunk of the 2021-22 campaign. Injuries plagued the Bulls to the point where rookie second-round pick Ayo Dosunmu played the fourth-most minutes on the team behind LaVine, Nikola Vucevic, and DeMar DeRozan.

While LaVine has largely put concerns regarding his knee to bed, worries about Ball’s availability have only intensified since the season ended.

A lot can happen before training camp opens in October. But the fact that the Chicago Bulls haven’t yet gotten healthy enough to stay healthy is alarming, even for the most optimistic of fans.
