Mirotic's face broken in scuffle at Bulls practice

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. "That punch connected, and for us, that is inexcusable. It disappoints us in terms of what happened and because of that we've determined that we're going to suspend Bobby for eight games". Hopefully, Mirotic and Portis will be able to hash things out.

Both parties were aggressive leading up to the conflict, according to Bulls vice president John Paxson, but Portis threw the punch that ultimately landed him with his suspension. "He's a good kid, but he made a mistake".

Portis will begin serving his suspension when Chicago opens the season Thursday night in Toronto. "And as we all know when you make mistakes, you have to suffer the consequences".

Mirotic, who is the more-experienced of the two, will miss four to six weeks with a fractured jaw and a concussion. He is expected to be out for the foreseeable future, league sources said. Portis will be eligible to return for the Bulls' ninth game of the season, which is coincidentally also at Toronto on November 7. His first three seasons in Chicago haven't exactly been sparkling - he has averaged a modest 10.8 points and 5.3 rebounds with a discreet 35% success rate in three pointers.

Portis, 22, was battling for backup minutes.

Portis, also a forward, averaged 6.8 points for Chicago last season.
