Surprised Grayson Allen is suspended only one game but got to turn the page and focus on tonight’s game. 4:45 CT pre. @670TheScore @Audacy @Chicago Bulls radio network , it is what it is. – 4:43 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

One game suspension for Grayson Allen. – 4:38 PM

“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
