Portis Suspended Eight Games After Fight In Practice

Nikola Mirotic

There was already a dearth of talent on this Bulls roster, but now both Portis and Mirotic are out of commission to start the season after this incident.

Chicago Bulls forward Bobby Portis has a call setup with the National Basketball Association on Wednesday to discuss the altercation he got into with forward Nikola Mirotic on Tuesday, and he's expected to face a multi-game suspension. Mirotic later underwent tests and was diagnosed with a concussion in addition to a broken jaw and facial fractures from the fight.

Bobby Portis punched Nikola Mirotic in practice, and now neither will be playing in games anytime soon.

While getting business and labor on board might sound like an impossible task, "the day will come" that will prove it can be done, he said.

Mirotic was taken to the hospital and released later Tuesday, sources said. "He's a competitive kid", Bulls Executive Vice President John Paxson told reporters on Tuesday in announcing the suspension. And as we all know when you make mistakes you got to suffer the consequences.

Mirotic, 26, signed a two-year, $27 million contract to return to the Bulls in the offseason.

Portis will be allowed to practice with the team during his suspension, though he won't be eligible to play again until the Bulls visit the Raptors on November 7. His first three seasons in Chicago haven't exactly been sparkling - he has averaged a modest 10.8 points and 5.3 rebounds with a discreet 35% success rate in three pointers. He will likely need surgery, according to the team. Portis was a first-round pick in 2015, and has averaged 6.9 points and five rebounds per game.
