Nikola Mirotic expected to miss a few weeks with two broken bones in face

Nikola Mirotic is expected to miss a few weeks with two broken bones in his face following a practice fight with a teammate, according to a report.

Mirotic was hospitalized after being punched by teammate Bobby Portis during practice on Tuesday. He has two broken bones in his face, according to The Chicago Tribune’s K.C. Johnson. The Bulls confirmed the news in a press release in which they stated that Mirotic also has a concussion.

The Bulls say Mirotic is out indefinitely as he recovers, though Johnson says the forward is expected to miss a few weeks.

Mirotic is likely to need surgery on his face.

The Bulls say they are weighing discipline for Portis.
