Bobby Portis suspended 8 games for punching Bulls teammate Nikola Mirotic
In one of the more... let's just say, "interesting" stories of this young National Basketball Association season, Bulls forward Bobby Portis apparently clocked teammate Nikola Mirotic in the face following a heated practice yesterday.
Power forwards Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis reportedly scuffled in practice, until Portis ended things with a cheap shot punch to the face that sent Mirotic to the hospital.
Mirotic is out indefinitely and could require surgery after signing a two-year contract worth $27 million this offseason to return to the team. But in this incident, he made a mistake. They say they are "evaluating disciplinary action" after Tuesday's incident. "And as we all know when you make mistakes, you have to suffer the consequences". A first-round pick in 2015, he averaged 6.8 points and 4.6 rebounds in 15.6 minutes last season.
Portis will be allowed to train with the team during his suspension, but he will not be eligible to play again until the Bulls visit the Toronto Raptors on November 7. Portis is likely going to miss a good chunk of games after a stunt like that, while Mirotic will likely be out longer with his facial injury.
