Chicago Bulls: Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic involved in fight, Mirotic hospitalized

Nikola Mirotic is now hospitalized after an altercation with Chicago Bulls teammate Bobby Portis, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

As for Portis, he can expect a stiff punishment from the team, as witnesses said it started as a shoving match between the two before Portis threw a cheap shot.

The Bulls say Mirotic is out indefinitely as he recovers, though Johnson says the forward is expected to miss a few weeks. Portis apparently punched Mirotic on the face breaking bones and sending him to the hospital.
