Bulls' Bobby Portis suspended eight games for breaking teammate Nikola Mirotic's jaw
Oct 19, 2017, 00:34
Chicago Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic suffered a fractured jaw and a concussion after fighting with team mate BobbyPortis in practice, the National Basketball Association reported on its website on Tuesday.
The incident allegedly occurred when Portis and Mirotic got into a shoving match during practice that ended with a cheap shot by Portis to the face of the 26-year-old. He's a good kid, he's a competitive kid.
The Bulls noted in their official news release that surgery is likely required for Mirotic and so have the doctors, according to Paxson. He is expected to miss four to six weeks, but will first need to clear concussion protocol. Mirotic dropped to the floor and lay there for several minutes before getting up. Mirotic charged at Portis twice before Portis threw a punch and connected with Mirotic's face, league sources said.
Portis, 22, a 2015 first-round pick by the Bulls, averaged 6.9 points and five rebounds over 126 games the past two seasons. He signed a two-year deal with $12.5 million guaranteed this season to stay in Chicago.

There's not really much precedent as far as suspensions for misconduct on the practice court go, but when you consider that Latrell Sprewell once got 68 games for choking head coach P.J. Carlesimo at practice (in a much different era of the NBA), maybe Portis got off easy here.
Portis will serve the suspension beginning with the Bulls' season opener at Toronto on Thursday night.
