Mirotic suffers broken jaw after being punched by a team mate

Mirotic suffers broken jaw after being punched by a team mate

The suspension comes on the heels of reports on Monday night that Portis got into it with Mirotic, resulting in him punching Mirotic.

Bobby Portis punched Nikola Mirotic in practice, and now neither will be playing in games anytime soon. He's a good kid, he's a competitive kid.

Mirotic suffered multiple broken bones in his face as well as a concussion on Tuesday.

He and Mirotic are expected to play key roles for a franchise looking to bounce back from a disappointing first-round playoff exit at the hands of the Boston Celtics, who erased a 2-0 deficit and won four straight to eliminate the Bulls. Mirotic dropped to the floor and lay there for several minutes before getting up. In fact, the fight sent forward Nikola Mirotic to the hospital.

In one of the more... let's just say, "interesting" stories of this young National Basketball Association season, Bulls forward Bobby Portis apparently clocked teammate Nikola Mirotic in the face following a heated practice yesterday.

Mirotic ended up signing a two-year deal with the Bulls on media day, and within two weeks was all but named a starter over Portis. He will likely need surgery, according to the team.

And it's just going to go fine, and we will have the experience of having this marvelous drill and training opportunity. Spencer participated in a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville , Virginia, that led to deadly violence in August.


According to The Vertical's Shams Charania, Mirotic and Portis got into a shoving altercation during practice before Portis threw a punch, connecting with Mirotic's face.

With Portis suspended and Mirotic out for a while, the Bulls now find themselves remarkably thin at the power forward and center spots to begin the season.
