Last week Friday Allen was issued a hard foul after the defense guard attempted to prevent the Chicago Bulls’ Alex Caruso from a layup in transition. Allen tried to block Caruso midair, following through with his other hand which resulted in pushing Caruso to the court. Caruso’s fall saw struggling to get up, clearly in pain. After examining Caruso, it was found that his wrist had been fractured.
Caruso will need surgery to repair the injury. The injury and consequent surgery will likely see the Bulls’ player off the court for the next 6-8 weeks while he recovers.
Allen received a flagrant-2 foul for the block and was removed from the court. The NBA said on Sunday that he will receive a one-game suspension for the “unnecessary and excessive contact” of the play.
