The Bulls are just one inch closer to full health after Bulls reporter K.C. Johnson reported that Alex Caruso has fully healed from the fractured wrist he suffered in January.
Alex Caruso said the bone is healed, he has no limitations but he has soreness with soft tissue that just needs to be strengthened over time. “We’re close,” Caruso said. No target date. Definitely sounds like he needs more contact practices.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) March 11, 2022
According to Johnson, the only issue Caruso is dealing with is some soft tissue soreness that needs to be strengthened over time. Although there is no target date for the Bald Mamba to return to the Bulls lineup, he said, “we’re close” to coming back.
In the 28 games Caruso played before he got hurt, the 28-year-old guard averaged 8.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game in 27.7 minutes per game.
The Bulls (40-26) are currently fourth in the Eastern Conference standings and are just three games behind the Heat for the number one seed in the conference playoffs. For now, they are in pursuit of the 76ers and Bucks, who lead the Bulls by one game and 1.5 games in the playoff chase.
