Portis poured in 23 points (10-15 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 23 minutes during Monday's 108-85 win over the Celtics.
Portis finished with a career high in scoring while matching his career high in made threes. The absence of Lauri Markkanen (sore back) paved the way for power forwards Portis and Nikola Mirotic, who thrived while the rookie sat. It's unclear whether Markkanen will be forced to miss any more time, but if he sits Portis and Mirotic would figure to benefit most from a statistical standpoint.
Portis scored 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-6 3PT) to go with nine rebounds and three assists over 27 minutes in Monday's 113-91 loss to Cleveland.
After missing back-to-back games, Portis (arm) almost collected his third double-double of the season by tallying 10 points and nine rebounds off of the bench against Cleveland. Overall, the forward is having a solid season, averaging career-highs in points (12.0), rebounds (7.0) and minutes (22.4). Portis has at least five rebounds in 10 games this season. While he may not light up the scoreboard in a reserve role, he should be a good source of rebounding numbers moving forward.
Portis will play in Monday's matchup with the Cavaliers, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.
Portis dealt with some swelling in his right arm late last week, ultimately forcing him to be a late scratch ahead of Friday's contest. However, the swelling has reportedly subsided and Portis will retake his spot in the lineup backing up Lauri Markkanen at the power forward position. Prior to Friday's absence, Portis averaged 10.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 21.6 minutes in his last five outings.
Portis (arm) was unable to take contact during Sunday's practice, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Portis had to sit out Friday's game against the Kings with a right arm injury and the fact that he still can't take contact likely means he's dealing with some lingering discomfort. With the Bulls slated to play the Cavaliers on Monday, Portis can tentatively be considered questionable, though his lack of contact Sunday likely means he's trending towards missing a second straight contest. Keep an eye out for another update following Monday's morning shootaround.
Portis will not play in Friday's game against the Kings due to a right arm injury, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Portis was not on the injury report heading into the evening, so it is unclear when sustained the injury. The severity of the issue is unknown at this time, but it will keep him out of Friday's contest. Paul Zipster could get some extra run backing up Lauri Markkanen at power forward as a result.
