Bobby Portis notched a 17-11 double-double in Friday’s loss to the Sixers, shooting 8-of-11 and canning a triple to boot.
Portis also blocked two shots and got the better of the power forward timeshare tonight. In his 27 minutes, Nikola Mirotic notched 15 points (four threes) of his own but was a -10 compared to Portis’ net zero. We’ll see if Portis has earned more time going forward. A lot of that will depend on Chicago’s playoff chances, so Portis owners should be hoping they completely fall off a cliff here. He’s not a surefire add but he’s definitely worth a speculative pickup in deep leagues if you need a big man.
