 Bulls’ Portis Suspended 8 Games for Punch – The Chicago Bulls have suspended forward Bobby Portis for eight games for punching teammate Nikola Mirotic during an altercation that left Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. Mirotic is expected to miss at least four to six weeks. John Paxson, the Bulls’ vice president of basketball operations, acknowledged that both players’ tempers escalated during practice Tuesday. “Both players owned responsibility in the incident itself,” Paxson said Wednesday. “But only one player threw a punch. And that punch connected and for us that is inexcusable. It’s not who we are. It disappoints us in terms of what happened, and because of that we’ve determined that we’re going to suspend Bobby for eight games.”
