Grayson Allen, the Milwaukee Bucks guard and former Duke Blue Devils star who is in his fourth season in the NBA after getting drafted by the Utah Jazz in 2018, is in trouble for an on-court incident again.

Allen, who has a rather extensive history of over-the-line incidents dating back to his days at Duke, has been suspended one game “for having made unnecessary and excessive contact” when he fouled Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso on Friday, the NBA announced Sunday.

The incident occurred in the third quarter of the game as Caruso rose up for a fast break layup attempt.

Allen rose up with him and appeared to push him down to the ground. Caruso fell to the floor hard, and Allen was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected.

The Bulls announced Saturday that the incident resulted in a fractured right wrist for Caruso, and he is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.
