Alex Caruso (hamstring) exits early vs. Nets
Bulls guard injures hamstring and exits after only eight minutes of action.
The Bulls’ success has been fronted by Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic, but it’s been driven by a total team effort and two-way commitment up and down the roster. One offseason signing, which helped to establish that culture, was guard Alex Caruso.
But a tweaked hamstring will cost Caruso the remainder of Saturday’s game at the very least, with the Bulls ruling him out after just 8 minutes of playing time against Brooklyn.
