This is a very bad look for the Bulls and the league in general so it makes sense for Commissioner Adam Silver to get involved. It is certain that Portis will receive disciplinary action as Nikola Mirotic was hospitalized after the incident and will most likely require surgery to repair a couple broken bones in his face.

We expect both players to remain out for the foreseeable future while rookie Lauri Markkanen will get an opportunity to showcase himself.
