NBA.com staff report
The Chicago Bulls season has gotten off to a rocky start even before the team's opening game Thursday (Friday, PHL time) at Toronto.
Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis were involved in a fight in practice on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time) with Mirotic ending up hospitalized and out indefinitely according to Yahoo! Sports.
This has been three years in the making, a source said. Mirotic has broken bones in his face, apparently instigated, and Portis punched him— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) October 17, 2017
"No Alphas" might not be so good either. What was going to be a long season in Chicago got way longer today. pic.twitter.com/uLHArJWA9i— Steve Aschburner (@AschNBA) October 17, 2017
