Alex Caruso is Questionable for Tonight’s Game Versus Orlando

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls could be without Alex Caruso as they try to snap their latest losing skid.

Caruso is “questionable” for tonight’s battle against the Orlando Magic at the United Center due to left foot soreness. He previously missed two games during the first week of February with a foot sprain.

The Bulls’ best defensive player has struggled a bit to make his usual impact over this latest three-game losing streak. He most recently scored 0 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers and finished the night with a -12 during his 21 minutes of action off the bench. Still, any game without Caruso automatically becomes a harder game for the Bulls.

This team remains at its best when they have his defensive skills on the floor. Not having him tonight against a rather deep Magic backcourt that features fiery athletes like Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs could prove problematic. The last time Chicago player Orlando, Caruso finished with a +19 in his 20 minutes of action to help Chicago cruise to a 128-109 victory.

Let’s hope the guard can pull through tonight or else the Bulls could be at risk of seeing their third four-game losing streak of the season.
