NBA news: Grayson Allen was banned one game without pay by the NBA on Sunday for the flagrant foul that shattered Chicago Bulls player Alex Caruso’s right wrist. The decision was met with “disagreement” by the Bucks.

On Friday, the incident occurred during the third quarter of Milwaukee’s 94-90 victory. Caruso drove to the hoop on a fast break with 5:45 left in the quarter.

Allen leapt to meet Caruso at the basket, stole his ball hand with his left hand, and then hurled Caruso to the floor with his right.

“It was a disaster. It was dreadful, to say the least “Donovan said to reporters. Alex could have terminated his career if he had been in the air like that and taken him down like that wrist and would lose 6-8 weeks due to the injuries. On Sunday, the NBA confirmed Allen’s punishment. He will miss Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road.

The Bucks issued a statement on Sunday in response to Allen’s suspension. “We disagree with the suspension,” the statement reads. “We support Grayson and look forward to him rejoining our team for Friday’s game vs. New York.”

“We are opposed to the suspension. We are rooting for Grayson and want to see him in action against New York on Friday.” Allen will miss the Bucks’ game against the Cavaliers on Wednesday night and will be penalized around $28,000 in wages as a result of the ban.

The remark, although unusual, mirrored the views of head coach Mike Budenholzer and other players who supported Allen for what they saw as a bad, but unintended, play.

However, the NBA cited “unnecessary and excessive contact” and Caruso’s “severe injury” as factors in their decision.

Caruso will have surgery on Monday to heal the fracture and will be assessed again in six to eight weeks.

The punishment was revealed at Bulls coach Billy Donovan’s press conference prior of Sunday’s game against the Magic. Donovan, who strongly condemned the act on Friday night, said he discussed the foul with the league but declined to elaborate.

The Bulls are now on to the next phase of their journey. “From what happened the other night to where we are today, nothing has changed.” And the greatest thing we can do as a group is to simply move on. Donovan stated, “That’s basically the only thing we have control over.” “I’m not going to stand here and tell you what the league should or should not do, or what is adequate or insufficient.

During his time at Duke, Allen tripped or kicked opponents on several occasions. He tripped Trae Young in 2020 while playing for the Memphis Grizzlies, eliciting a reprimand from the Atlanta Hawks guard.
