Bobby Portis suspended 8 games for punching teammate Nikola Mirotic in face

In case you missed it, Bobby Portis was suspended for eight games for punching Nikola Mirotic, leaving him with a concussion and facial fractures.

"Bobby Portis is not a bad person", Paxson said to reporters on Wednesday after practice, via Sean Highkin. Mirotic charged at Portis twice before Portis threw a punch and connected with Mirotic's face, according to the report.

There was already a dearth of talent on this Bulls roster, but now both Portis and Mirotic are out of commission to start the season after this incident. "He's a good kid". We all know when you make mistakes, we got to suffer the consequences.

Bulls general manager Gar Forman was at the practice and witnessed the altercation, league sources said. He can practice with the team during his suspension and will be eligible to return for the Bulls' Nov. 7 game against Toronto.

Rookie Lauri Markkanen will probably draw the start at power forward against the Raptors on Thursday night, Robin Lopez will start at center and Christiano Felicio will stay plenty busy as basically the only backup big on the Bulls' roster for the moment.

Mirotic averaged 10.8 points over his first three seasons with Chicago.
