Donovan Mitchell not playing in either Golden State or Phoenix takes quite a bit of wind out of the sails of those games.

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

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

Here are the #NBA‘s Top 5 scoring leaders:
1.Kevin Durant, Nets, 29.3 ppg

4.Joel Embiid, Sixers, 28.4
5.Trae Young, Hawks 27.9 – 4:27 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

5.Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks, 30 – 4:20 PM

It’ll be weird if the NBA plays the result and suspends Allen after the Caruso news broke. That play should’ve been reviewed by no later than this morning, especially considering the Bucks play again in 3 hours. It was clearly dangerous, and we’ve seen dudes suspended for less. – 3:57 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.

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

My prediction is that the Lakers don’t trade Russell Westbrook for John Wall. I think they do everything possible to make it work this year, and if it doesn’t, they trade his expiring deal in the offseason for a few overpaid role players on long-term deals

Klay Thompson is going to settle in, and ideally Wiggins and Poole figure it out with him. But right now Thompson is dribbling and shooting too much and it’s had ripple effect. – 4:31 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
If Russell Westbrook gets traded to Houston, this is how I *actually* think it would play out:
He agrees to stay away from the Rockets for the rest of the year. Rather than playing this season, he stays in LA with his family. Then they figure out a buyout in the offseason. – 4:23 PM

Quin said he’d love to get Eric Paschall some more minutes, and noted he deserves to play, but said he felt like they need to have a traditional rolling big as much as possible (hence the Dok minutes vs. Houston), and wants to get Rudy Gay settled at the 4, so it’s hard. – 7:35 PM

Gregg Popovich says as tough as it was parting ways with Patty Mills and LaMarcus Aldridge, he’s happy they went where they did. Thinks its good the young Spurs don’t have those guys to count on and have to close games on their own and it’s good LA and Mills are chasing a ring. – 6:51 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“This has been a win-win for everybody because our guys have continued to grow.” – Coach Pop on Patty Mills and LaMarcus Aldridge moving on to a contender, which gives the Spurs young players a chance to be the leaders on the team. – 6:51 PM

“He’s unselfish and loving, giving, to all people, no matter where they live in the world. He gives everything he has in every practice, every game. The community here (San Antonio) felt that here for 10 years.” – Coach Pop on Patty Mills – 6:48 PM
