NBA player profile for Alex Caruso with stats and fantasy analysis

ALEX
CARUSO

Apr. 11, 2019 - Is Alex Caruso for real or not? What's very real is the fact that he played awesome down the stretch and should be at the very least a rotation player in this league from day one next season. While it's sometimes hard to take NBA stats seriously at the end of the year, with a huge influx of G-League talent seeing playing time as proven NBA players rest and sit out the year, it's hard to look past what Caruso did. He simply passes the eye test. Still, it's unlikely Caruso will be a fantasy force next season, even if he did come through big time for fantasy playoff squads this season.
