Nikola Mirotic Reportedly Out Indefinitely After Getting Punched By Bobby Portis

Bovada has the Chicago Bulls‘ regular season over/under set at 22. We here at BC advise you to take that Under immediately as the Bulls are going to be terrible (obviously), and will now be without two rotation players to start the season.

According to The Vertical’s Shams Charanica, Bobby Portis sent Nikola Mirotic to the hospital after delivering a cheap shot during practice — details from the report:

Mirotic was taken to the hospital Tuesday after their shoving altercation during practice ended with an alleged cheap shot from Portis to Mirotic’s face, league sources told The Vertical. Mirotic is undergoing tests, but is expected to be out for the foreseeable future, league sources said.

The Bulls quickly released a statement informing everyone that Mirotic suffered a concussion and maxillary fractures.

In a surprise to no one, Portis is likely facing a massive suspension:

Mirotic is out indefinitely…Bulls are evaluating disciplinary action. Suspension for Ports likely. Hearing league office is now involved.
