Bobby Portis

Bobby Portis on Friday further addressed the Nikola Mirotic altercation that resulted in a hospital visit for Mirotic and eventually led to him being traded.

The Chicago Bulls forward said that he is “sorry” for what happened. He also said that he and Mirotic tried to keep a professional relationship while teammates but never really got along.

Mirotic ended up with two broken bones in his face after a practice fight with Portis in October, leading to a suspension for Portis. Portis has played in 42 games this season for the Bulls and is averaging 12.1 points and 20.5 minutes per game.

Mirotic is averaging 16.8 points in 25 games this season for Chicago. He was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans this week.
