Billy Donovan provides crucial update on injured Bulls’ star

Without Alex Caruso, the Bulls triumphed handsomely on Sunday night, and Billy Donovan discussed his injury in the postgame press conference.

It was a crucial game for both the Chicago Bulls and the Detroit Pistons as they faced off on Sunday night in Chicago. A few weeks into the season, we are beginning to get to know each club better and better.

The Pistons and Bulls needed to win on Sunday because both clubs had difficult starts to the season. Detroit had a 2-8 record going into the game, while Chicago had a 3-6 record. Both teams needed momentum, and the Bulls’ 119-108 win provided it.

In this one, Detroit jumped out to an early double-digit lead, but the Bulls swiftly mounted a comeback that kept the score tight the entire time. In the end, Chicago pulled away with the game after making the crucial plays late. They managed a significant victory despite the absence of Alex Caruso, a vital player, due to a toe injury. Billy Donovan gave an update on his injury and explained why he kept him out.

After the game, Billy Donovan informed the media, “In my conversation with medical, because we didn’t have shootaround this morning, they had some interaction with Alex (Caruso).” “There’s no doubt in my mind that you’re looking to account for the fact that we have five games in seven days—I believe six in nine—and that we’re playing back-to-back. “Okay, do you let this try to calm down a little bit or do these games potentially start setting him back?” you ask yourself as you sit there.

Although I never said, “Alex, can you play or not?” he did seem uncomfortable. We’ll always be cautious with him and work to make wise decisions, but I do believe you have to consider the current timetable in terms of trying to get him well. I do believe that when he was out there, he didn’t feel well and didn’t want to go.

When asked if Caruso was on a daily basis, Donovan said he didn’t think it would take weeks, but he wasn’t able to provide a firm response. Caruso didn’t play out of caution, and it sounds like his ailment is mild and the Bulls don’t want it to become worse. Chicago has a full schedule, and the players suffer from those games.

Monday night marks the Bulls’ return to play as they travel to face the Milwaukee Bucks.
