Grayson Allen puts the heart and soul of your team out, and now the Magic are taking turns talking trash to you. At some point you have to defend your rep. Otherwise get used to this treatment. – 8:28 PM

Vooch walks off on his own power … Grayson Allen no where in sight for that one. – 8:22 PM

Public enemy No. 1 – Grayson Allen – gets a game, Alex Caruso gets a Monday surgery and out 6-to-8 weeks. Reaction from coach Billy Donovan, as he doubles down on almost all his comments from Friday.

Billy Donovan did back down his stance on Grayson Allen and his past in college a bit, but said if the roles were reversed and Caruso took out Giannis or Middleton, would the Bucks be so easy to say it wasn’t malicious like they have been the last 24 hours. – 4:50 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Right call to suspend Grayson Allen. I thought he might get a couple of games, but the NBA rarely gives suspensions longer than a game for a flagrant foul. Given Allen’s history, I can understand why some wanted a longer suspension though. – 4:43 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
One game suspension for Grayson Allen. – 4:38 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
“Grayson, we know Grayson. He’s not that type of player. He didn’t do it maliciously and he didn’t want to see Caruso get hurt. Grayson didn’t do it purpose. We know that and he knows that, so he knows that we have his back.” Jrue Holiday on Grayson Allen. – 1:37 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Regarding potential Grayson Allen discipline, there is league precedent for $25K fine for flagrant-2 fouls. Happened last season with Jamal Murray. – 1:33 PM
Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Kyrie Irving was fined $25K for a harmless back and forth with fans. Grayson Allen was fined $2K (ejection) for an intentional flagrant that broke Alex Caruso’s wrist and could have ended his career. – 12:23 AM
