  • Portis accumulated 20 points (7-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 25 minutes in Friday's 105-87 loss to the Pacers. Portis backed up his season debut with another solid performance, leading the team in scoring with 20 points. While he was not as efficient as his season opener, he was still looking for his shot at any opportunity, while crashing the boards once again. Lauri Markkanen was also impressive, yet inefficient, and appears likely to remain the in the starting line-up. It will be interesting to see how the minutes are shared upon Nikola Mirotic's return, given he was the assumed starter prior to the beginning of the regular season.

  • Portis provided 21 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, and four assists in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 119-114 loss to the Raptors. Portis impressed in his regular season debut following an eight-game suspension due to his scuffle with teammate Nikola Mirotic. Rookie starting power forward Lauri Markkanen had by far the most modest showing of his young career in this one, but it's likely Portis will need to string at least a few more solid performances together before Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg would consider making a lineup change. With that being said, Portis clearly brought his best effort on both ends and stands to see plenty of playing time whether he's starting or coming off the bench.

  • Portis has finished serving his eight-game suspension and will return for Tuesday's game against the Raptors. Portis was suspended for the last eight games after punching teammate Nikola Mirotic (concussion) during a practice prior to the regular season. He'll be eligible to return Tuesday, though it's unclear exactly what his role will be. Rookie Lauri Markkanen has played very well and will likely remain with the top unit at power forward, so that leaves Portis to serve as his backup, at least until Mirotic is healthy enough to make a return. That being said, Portis should still have a steady role off the bench for the time being.

  • Portis (suspension) is expected to make his season debut on Nov. 7 against the Raptors, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports. Portis remains suspended after striking teammate Nikola Mirotic during practice prior to the regular season, but coach Fred Hoiberg told the media that he plans to insert Portis into the rotation on Nov. 7, the first contest for which he'll be eligible after missing eight games. It's tough to gauge where, exactly, Portis will fit on a lackluster Bulls roster, but he figures to hold a steady role off the bench and could compete with Mirotic (concussion) for minutes, though it's unclear when -- or if -- Mirotic will return to action for Chicago.

  • Bulls' Bobby Portis: Suspended eight games by Bulls
    By RotoWire Staff

    Portis has been suspended for eight games by the Bulls following an altercation with teammate Nikola Mirotic at Tuesday's practice, Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago reports. It's unclear if Portis will face additional discipline by the league, as the eight-game suspension was handed down by the Bulls' organization. With both him and Mirotic (face) out for an extended period of time, Lauri Markkanen will probably see the bulk of the run at power forward.
