If you have never heard the names Bobby Portis or Nikola Mirotic—it’s because you don’t read the sports page or Chicago police blotter.
That’s because last night 26-year-old Mirotic was in the hospital and out of the lineup last night after getting into a practice fight with his Chicago Bulls teammate Portis.
The Vertical’s Shams Charania shared this Tweet yesterday.
Sources: Bulls forwards Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic were involved in serious altercation in practice today, leaving Mirotic hospitalized and out indefinitely. Story coming.
And while we don’t know how it started, we do know how it ended—with a cheap shot to Mirotic’s face.
As of last night, Mirotic was undergoing testing.
As for 22-year-old Portis…
Well, let’s hope he’s having his head examined, too.
