Bulls’ Nikola Mirotic hospitalized after practice fight with teammate

Nikola Mirotic was hospitalized and is out indefinitely after getting into a practice fight with his Chicago Bulls teammate Bobby Portis, according to a report.

The Vertical’s Shams Charania broke the news on Twitter Tuesday.

Charania says the altercation between the two players ended with a cheap shot to Mirotic’s face. Mirotic underwent testing and has two broken bones in his face, according to the Chicago Tribune’s K.C. Johnson. He was also evaluated for a concussion.

Mirotic, 26, has been with the Bulls the past three seasons. He has been dealing with an ankle sprain over the past week. Portis, 22, is in his third season as a reserve forward for the Bulls.
