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.

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

Bucks injury report for tonight’s game against the Kings:
DOUBTFUL: Giannis Antetokounmpo (right knee soreness)
PROBABLE: Grayson Allen (left hip soreness)
OUT: Brook Lopez (back surgery), Lindell Wigginton (health and safety protocols) – 1:47 PM

The boos Grayson Allen receives when Bucks are in Chicago on March 4 might crumble the roof of the United Center – 1:23 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
On Chicago radio the #Bucks Grayson Allen is Public Enemy No. 1 for his flagrant foul on Alex Caruso.
The #Bulls went hard, too.
“I hope the league takes a hard look at some thing like that.”
“Dude just grabbed me out of the air. It’s kind of bulls—t.”

Grayson Allen pretended to make a play on the ball not once but twice. Can’t believe a Bulls player didn’t get in his face with Caruso on the floor. – 4:33 AM

Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Alex Caruso, asked if Grayson Allen came over to check on him after taking him out: “No.” – 11:39 PM

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
“Kind of bullshit. Don’t know what else you could have done about it.” Caruso on the Grayson Allen foul. – 11:37 PM

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Grayson Allen … your new public enemy No. 1 … as Bulls lose to Bucks in a grimy game all around.

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Donovan on Grayson Allen foul: “It was really bad. Really, really bad.”
Said it could’ve ended Caruso’s career. And Allen has a history of it. Said he hopes league takes a look at it. – 10:57 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
I typically root for 99.9% of NBA players to play well, earn that money and generally thrive in this league.
Grayson Allen is the 0.1% – 10:52 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The officials have ruled Grayson Allen’s foul is a Flagrant 2.
Allen is ejected, and boos escort him out from the #Bulls fans. – 9:48 PM

Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
And Grayson Allen is ejected for a flagrant foul on Caruso, who seems to be OK. #Bulls down by 1 mid-3rdQ – 9:48 PM

Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
Hard to see Grayson Allen getting the benefit of the doubt here. #Bulls9:47 PM

Gery Woelfel @GeryWoelfel
Expect Grayson Allen is be writing out a check to the NBA. Ridiculous. – 9:47 PM

Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls
Grayson Allen sends Alex Caruso to the floor—-is it a flagrant one or two? – 9:46 PM

Grayson Allen gonna Grayson Allen! pic.twitter.com/MRYRoHu6nS9:46 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Alex Caruso is up after absorbing hard foul from Grayson Allen and bouncing off floor. – 9:45 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
That’s a hard fall for Alex Caruso. he was sprinting down the floor and Grayson Allen grabbing his arm to prevent the layup.
It spun Caruso around and he hit the floor hard. After staying down for a minute, he is walking towards the Bulls bench. – 9:45 PM
