Bulls' Mirotic out indefinitely after 'serious altercation' with Bobby Portis

  • Report: Nikola Mirotic Hopsitalized After Fight with Bobby Portis at Bulls Practice

According to the full report, the altercation ended with an alleged cheap shot from Portis to Mirotic's face. Portis reportedly struck Mirotic's face with the blow, and Charania states this incident will leave Mirotic out for the foreseeable future.

The Chicago Bulls season has gotten off to a rocky start even before the team's opening game Thursday at Toronto. Although, the 26-year-old forward is still undergoing tests. The team is yet to comment, but the expectation is that Mirotic, who was already nursing an ankle issue, will be sidelined indefinitely.

Through two National Basketball Association seasons, Portis is averaging about seven points and five rebounds per game for the Bulls. He operated as a stash until 2014.

Portis was drafted in the first round (22nd overall) in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Just two days before their season opener against the Raptors, the Bulls are in the news for all the wrong reasons. This story is still developing, but Portis sending one of his teammates to the hospital is likely to result in a very harsh punishment from Chicago management.
