Bouncing back to pick up a much-needed win over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, the Chicago Bulls now possess a 26-28 record and are desperately looking to climb back to a .500 winning percentage. Their final chance to do so before the All-Star Break will come against the surging Cleveland Cavaliers, who have won 17 of their last 19 games.

Unfortunately, the Bulls may have to enter this pivotal game without yet another of their key contributors. That's because Alex Caruso may be joining Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball on the injury report, as he's once again uncertain to suit up tonight after missing the last game against Atlanta. Despite going through shootaround ahead of the Hawks game, Caruso was listed as questionable and ultimately opted to sit things out.

Alex Caruso's status for tonight's game vs. Cavaliers

Caruso retains the questionable designation ahead of tonight's game. The fact he's been able to participate in basketball activities and proceed through shootaround is an encouraging sign. At the same time, Ayo Dosunmu is playing so well in his absence that the Bulls may hesitate to put Caruso out there if he does not feel 100 percent healthy. Stay tuned for any updates on Caruso's status as we approach tip-off time.

Patrick Williams' status for tonight's game vs. Cavaliers

As expected, Patrick Williams has been ruled out ahead of tonight's game against Cleveland. Williams' initial diagnosis had him scheduled for an official re-evaluation for this week. With this being the Bulls; last game before the All-Star Break, it makes sense that the team will allow him the opportunity to rest up and make a healthy return following the break.
