Bobby Portis will come off his eight-game suspension for Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors.
Portis was suspended for punching Nikola Mirotic during practice on Oc. 17th.
“[Portis has] been practicing, and that will all be discussed in the next couple days, exactly what we’re going to do in the Toronto game,” Fred Hoiberg said Saturday. “The biggest thing is try to go out there with the guys that we’ve had available and put them in a position where they’re competing and giving ourselves a chance to win. And for the most part, with the exception of the Oklahoma City game, we’ve done that. We’ll get that figured out in the next few days.”
The Bulls are not yet sure how they will handle the situation between Portis and Mirotic, once Mirotic is physically cleared to return.
“I think he’s handled it as well as he could have,” Robin Lopez said of Portis. “I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen going forward with rotations or anything, but I know he’s mentally prepared for it, and we’re excited to have him back.”
