“Also to this point. I stood at half court watching till he got up till see if he was okay. Then when I was back by our bench a teammate made a joke and I laughed. I wasn’t laughing at the foul,” Allen said in response to Jefferson’s tweet. “It was very unfortunate how it played out. I jumped to block it with my left and as I’m spinning went to grab the ball with my right hand not throw him down. It was a really hard fall and I’m glad he’s okay. If I could do the play over again knowing he’d fall like that I wouldn’t make the play.”

Allen is attempting to clear the air to his fans regarding what, in his eyes, truly transpired between him and Caruso. The controversial Duke product denied laughing at Caruso, suggesting a Bucks teammate had made a joke at the time he was seen snickering.

Caruso is expected to miss up to two months after undergoing surgery on the injured wrist. He will be reevaluated in 6-8 weeks.
