Bulls Suspend Bobby Portis Eight Games After Scuffle with Nikola Mirotic
The Chicago Bulls say forward Nikola Mirotic suffered multiple broken bones in his face as well as a concussion in a fight with teammate Bobby Portis during practice. And that punch connected and for us that is inexcusable.
"I'm very disappointed in what happened". "He's a good kid".
Just hours before the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season was set to begin Tuesday night, reports began circulating of a nasty altercation between Chicago Bulls forwards Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis at practice. Johnson is also reporting that Mirotic will miss four to six weeks with two maxillary fractures in his face.
Wojnarowski reported that Bulls GM Gar Foreman was at practice and witnessed the incident. He can practice with the team during his suspension and will be eligible to return for the Bulls' Nov. 7 game against Toronto. The Bulls made their intentions clear when they dealt one of the league's best two-way players to Minnesota and reunited Butler with former coach Tom Thibodeau. Rookie Lauri Markkanen will probably draw the start at power forward against the Raptors on Thursday night, Robin Lopez will start at center and Christiano Felicio will stay plenty busy as basically the only backup big on the Bulls' roster for the moment.
BJP leader trolled for calling Taj Mahal a 'blot' Owaisi said Modi should also stop hosting foreign dignitaries at Hyderabad House as this too was built by "traitors". Owaisi further questioned whether the government has the guts to ask tourists not to visit the monument.
Mirotic, 26, averaged 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game last season, and was expected to start for Chicago this season.
Portis, 22, was battling for backup minutes.
Portis, entering his third season in the NBA since being taken in the first round by Chicago in the 2015 NBA Draft, received an eight-game suspension from Chicago, which announced the decision on Wednesday afternoon.
