Bobby Portis ejected for hard foul on Tomas Satoransky
Bobby Portis was ejected from Saturday’s game for a hard foul on Tomas Satoransky.
Late in the fourth quarter of the Bulls’ game against the Wizards, Portis went up to attempt to block Satoransky and made contact with the Wizards guard. The result was Satoransky hitting the floor very hard after an awkward looking fall.

Portis was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul, and subsequently ejected from the game. Satoransky had blood coming from near his eye, but was able to leave the court under his own power.
The win over Chicago could prove to be a costly one for Washington. Satoransky has been starting during John Wall’s absence. If he is forced to miss time, the Wizards would be in a bit of a jam at the point guard position. Tim Frazier, who has been backing up Satoransky, suffered a nasal fracture on Saturday and may need surgery. Ironically, Portis was involved in Frazier’s injury as well as it was Portis’ knee that came in contact with Frazier’s head.
