Nikola Mirotic addressed the media as he nears return from injuries sustained from his in-practice fight with Bobby Portis.
Mirotic said he accepts the apology of Portis. Mirotic had previously requested the Bulls either trade him or Portis.
“I’ve been playing this game nine years professionally,” said Mirotic. “I was always a good teammate, always professional with everybody. I’m going to continue to do that. If I’m here, it’s because I want to support the team. He’s a part of the team. I’m going to support him too”
While Mirotic is ready to move on, he isn’t completely forgetting about the incident.
“I just know that right now the only goal – Bulls goal and my goal – is to make me get back with the team and practice together and get my strength back and as soon as I can, play with the team,” Mirotic said.
