Bulls guard Alex Caruso is expected to be cleared to resume dribbling and shooting drills in the next seven to 10 days as he recovers from a wrist fracture, Chicago coach Billy Donovan said on Wednesday. Caruso sustained the injury on Jan. 21 in a game against the Bucks. Milwaukee guard Grayson Allen received a Flagrant 2 foul for swiping at Caruso in midair on the play in the third quarter of the game and received a one-game suspension.

Caruso underwent surgery and was projected to miss six to eight weeks, the team said at the time. The 27-year-old joined Chicago in free agency after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Lakers and is averaging 8.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists this season.

Donovan also provided an update on star guard Zach LaVine, who visited a knee specialist this week. Doctors "feel totally fine" about LaVine playing and the team expects to have him back when the season resumes after the All-Star break, Donovan said.

LaVine, who was voted an All-Star, is averaging 24.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 47 games this season for a Bulls team (37-21) that boasts the best record — along with the Miami Heat — in the Eastern Conference.
