  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Sitting out Game 5

    Caruso (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 matchup with the Bucks in Milwaukee, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Along with Caruso, the Bulls are also expected to be without Zach LaVine, who entered the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Tuesday. With two of their backcourt starters out of the lineup, the Bulls are expected to rely more heavily on Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White to fill minutes at the two guard spots. If the Bulls can pull off the upset win on the road Wednesday to stave off elimination, Caruso has a chance at clearing the protocol before Friday's Game 6 matchup.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Still in concussion protocol

    Caruso remains in the NBA's concussion protocols as of Tuesday and didn't travel with the team to Milwaukee, but he hasn't officially been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Bucks, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Caruso remained at home to rest during Chicago's practice Tuesday and, given that he isn't traveling with the team, appears doubtful for Game 5, though he's officially listed as questionable. Zach LaVine (COVID-19 protocols) is also unlikely to play in the win-or-go-home matchup, so barring a late change of plans, Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White are both expected to garner major roles.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Getting concussion evaluation

    The Bulls evaluated Caruso (face) for a concussion after he exited Sunday's 119-95 loss to the Bucks in Game 4 of the series, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Caruso played 17 minutes and contributed zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal before leaving the game with what the Bulls called a facial injury. If Caruso is diagnosed with a concussion, he would likely face an uphill battle to clear the NBA's protocol for head injuries in advance of Wednesday's Game 5 matchup. Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White would likely handle expanded roles if Caruso can't go for Game 5.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Remains in concussion protocol

    Caruso remains in the NBA's concussion protocol as of Monday and is considered questionable for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Bucks, KC Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The Bulls likely won't issue an official injury report until later in the week, but coach Billy Donovan indicated Monday morning that Caruso is essentially day-to-day while he remains in protocols. The defensive-minded guard will go through daily testing in hopes of being cleared to play, but it's quite possible that he could miss Game 5 after taking an elbow to the face during Sunday's Game 4. Ayo Dosunmu (series-high 29 minutes) was the primary beneficiary after Caruso departed Sunday's contest.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Won't return to Game 4

    Caruso has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's Game 4 against the Bucks due to a facial injury, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.

    Caruso took an inadvertent shot to the face from Jevon Carter during the final minutes of the first half and wasn't with the team to start the second half. Ayo Dosunmu drew the start in his place and will likely garner an increased role for the remainder of the contest.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Not on bench to start second half

    Caruso remained in the locker room to start the second half of Sunday's Game 5 against the Bucks, Julia Poe of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Caruso took a shot to the face during the final minutes of the first half and wasn't with the team to start the second half, as Ayo Dosunmu drew the start. The Bulls haven't provided an update, so the veteran point guard's status is unclear moving forward.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Starting Game 1 at Milwaukee

    Caruso will start Sunday's Game 1 against the Bucks.

    Caruso missed the final three games of the regular season with a bruised back, but he was removed from the injury report Saturday and will be back in the starting lineup to begin the postseason. Chicago has used Caruso as both a starter and a reserve this season, but he'll get the nod as the nominal point guard Sunday alongside Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, Patrick Williams and Nikola Vucevic.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Says he feels good

    Caruso (back) said Wednesday that he's "as close to 100 percent as I can be right now," Will Gottlieb of CHGO Sports reports.

    While it appears that Caruso may not be at full health heading into the Bulls' Round 1 series against Milwaukee, it's still encouraging that he seems to be feeling relatively good after going through a full practice Tuesday. The defensive-minded guard missed the final three games of the regular season due to a bruised back.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Practices Tuesday

    Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said Caruso (back) went through Tuesday's practice, which involved competitive scrimmages with full contract, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Caruso sat out the regular-season finale, extending his absence to three straight games due to back spasms. However, Donovan said that the point guard has conveyed this is the "best he's felt" in a while, per Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago. With Lonzo Ball (knee) out for the season, Caruso is expected to be the starting point guard for the Bulls during the postseason.
