This is tough news for Bulls nation.

The Chicago Bulls announced on Saturday that veteran guard Alex Caruso will undergo surgery next week after sustaining a fracture on his right wrist in Friday's loss to the Bucks.

The injury was suffered after Grayson Allen did a flagrant-2 foul last night on a fast break.

Caruso will be re-evaluated in six to eight weeks as they monitor his rehab.

"Dude just grabbed me out of the air," Caruso said after Friday's game. "It's kind of bulls---. I don't know what else you can do about it. I'm just glad that I didn't have any major scary injuries right away."

It appeared to be a very dirty play, and it will be interesting to see if the NBA decides to suspend Allen for at least a few games or more.

Caruso is averaging 8.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game for the season.
