Jrue Holiday on Grayson Allen: We have his back

- by

Joe Cowley: “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.

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.

Last night, the Bucks won by scoring 133 points. 3 of those 133 felt more important than the rest.
“This is what he’s been doing. He makes timely 3s. He makes big shots, especially in that moment.” – Jrue Holiday on Khris Middleton

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

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

Aaron Wiggins made a fantastic play and was sent to the floor in a heap by Cedi Osman. Thank goodness it was Osman and not Grayson Allen… – 9:54 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
No Giannis? No problem. Missing their superstar, the Bucks still managed to handle the Kings Sunday afternoon. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday picked up the slack, handing Sacramento a 133-127 loss. Here are 6 quick thoughts from the Kings’ third straight defeat. – 9:25 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Jrue Holiday decided to not worry about his touch and just threw that dunk DOWN with his left hand.
And then made a ridiculous defensive play on the other. Wow. – 9:16 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
There are not many guards that just take a few shoulder bumps on the chest from Jrue Holiday, but Davion Mitchell just stood his ground and stripped Holiday. Impressive stuff from the rookie. – 9:04 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Jrue Holiday is still searching for his touch. Just missed another easy one. – 8:24 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Khris Middleton has hit 6 of his first 7 shots and has 14 points for the #Bucks. Jrue Holiday has 13 on 5 of 12 shooting. Milwaukee up 59-51 near the close of the first half. – 8:00 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Jrue Holiday is 3-for-10 from the field to start this one. Jordan Nwora has eight points off the bench. #Bucks7:52 PM

Alex Caruso will need surgery on his fractured wrist after flagrant foul form Grayson Allen.
The Bulls have been outraged by Allen’s foul and his agent calls for the NBA to send a “clear message” with punishment: espn.com/nba/story/_/id…7:43 PM
Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
Bulls’ Alex Caruso will miss 6 to 8 weeks with wrist fracture after Grayson Allen flagrant foul – The Athletic theathletic.com/3086330/2022/0…7:40 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
When Khris Middleton went to the bench with 5:54 left in the first quarter, the Bucks trailed, 19-14. Now with Jrue Holiday going to the bench with 3:02 left in Q1, the Bucks trail 28-17.
Defense is going to need to get a lot better tonight. – 7:26 PM
Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls
I can’t begin to tell you how disappointed I am that Grayson Allen has not been suspended . I’ll turn the page and get locked in to broadcast Sunday’s game in Orlando but I feel badly for @Alex Caruso and the @bulls organization. 4:45 Sunday @670TheScore @Audacy @Chicago Bulls radio – 7:07 PM

Bulls’ Alex Caruso fractures wrist as result of Grayson Allen foul, will need surgery – The Athletic theathletic.com/news/bulls-ale…4:45 PM
Stephen Noh @StephNoh
It is wild to me that Caruso was deflecting passes WITH his fractured wrist (!), guarding and blocking Giannis, and playing lockdown defense even after suffering his injury.
These plays all happened after Grayson Allen’s flagrant-2 foul. This guy is tough as nails. pic.twitter.com/eINqdWDjxU4:41 PM

Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Alex Caruso will have surgery next week after fracturing his right wrist on Grayson Allen’s flagrant foul. Re-eval timeline: 6-8 weeks
A brutal string of injury misfortune continues for Bulls, who should be incensed over circumstances of latest break
nbcsports.com/chicago/bulls/…4:34 PM
Bryan Kalbrosky @BryanKalbrosky
The league should suspend Grayson Allen for his foul on Alex Caruso. It won’t accomplish anything to just fine him. Not only did that dirty play seriously injure Caruso, but without his defensive impact on the Bulls, it could very easily change the course of the season. – 4:23 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Alex Caruso is now headed for wrist surgery after the Grayson Allen incident from Friday, and will be re-evaluated in 6-to-8 weeks.
Read it:
chicago.suntimes.com/bulls/2022/1/2…4:13 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
The problem with all the outcry of suspend Grayson Allen because of his past … his NBA record is pretty clean. It was just the second Flagrant 2 he’s ever had, and a Summer League ejection is the only other mark. His worst moments were in college, before the NBA. – 3:57 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
The Bucks are listing Giannis Antetokounmpo as doubtful for today’s game vs. the Kings due to right knee soreness. Grayson Allen (hip soreness) is probable. Tyrese Haliburton is expected back in the lineup for Sacramento after missing the past two games.
sacbee.com/sports/nba/sac…3:53 PM
JD Shaw @JShawNBA
Bulls guard Alex Caruso will undergo surgery and miss at least 6-to-8 weeks after suffering a fractured right wrist last night. Grayson Allen was issued a Flagrant 2 foul on the play. – 3:50 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
The Bulls have confirmed that Caruso will have surgery on the right wrist next week, and will be re-evaluated in 6-8 weeks. Grayson Allen has removed the heart of the Bulls, and did it with a smirk. – 3:45 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Grayson Allen needs to be suspended for at least one game. At least.
I watched that play at least 20 times. Allen’s initial contest was fine. His left hand was on the ball. It was a foul, but that’s all. Then when he swung his right arm at Caruso is when it went WAY too far. – 3:42 PM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso has suffered a fractured right wrist and will likely need surgery, sources tell ESPN. The injury occurred after a fall following a flagrant foul from Milwaukee’s Grayson Allen on Friday night. – 3:40 PM

More on this storyline

Adrian Wojnarowski: Milwaukee Bucks’ statement on Grayson Allen’s 1 game suspension: “We disagree with the suspension. We support Grayson and look forward to him rejoining our team for Friday’s game vs. New York.” -via Twitter @wojespn / January 23, 2022
