Bulls suspend Portis 8 games for injuring Mirotic

NBA Fans Right Now

Chicago Bulls third-year forward Bobby Portis is now serving an eight-game suspension for punching teammate Nikola Mirotic in the face during practice earlier this week that required Mirotic to be hospitalized.

"I'll keep that between the team", Hoiberg said, "as far as exactly what was said in that meeting". "I want to publicly apologise to Niko". I feel like I let my fans, the Bulls organization, [and] most importantly my teammates down.

Mirotic suffered two facial fractures in addition to a concussion in the fight - the 2015 NBA All-Rookie First Team selection expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks with the injury.

Portis, who has declined to speak to the media for now, practiced Friday for the first time since Tuesday's incident.




Portis said he has tried to talk to Mirotic but has not heard back from him.

Portis was suspended a total of eight games for his actions, while Mirotic is out indefinitely with no time slated for his return.

Not much information has been released to the public regarding the fight, up until now however, where it's been reported that Portis texted an apology to Mirotic, and didn't even get a response. Please, Nikola Mirotic, respond to Portis's totally earnest and in fact real and not at all made-up attempts to reach you, and spare him this torment!

"I'm not concerned about that at this point", he said. "We just have to fix this relationship".
