Bulls' Nikola Mirotic hospitalized after fight with teammate Bobby Portis

The Bulls released a statement confirming reports that circulated around 5 PM about the incident at the Advocate Center.

On the eve of the National Basketball Association season, Chicago Bulls teammates Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic got into fight at practice, and Mirotic was beaten so badly, he had to be hospitalized.

According to Charania, Portis and Mirotić, who play the same position, got into a "shoving altercation", which ended with Portis throwing "an alleged cheap shot" to Mirotić's face. Surgery will likely be required.

1 in 9 American men are infected with oral HPV
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend the HPV vaccine for preteens, and it's typically given at age 11 or 12. Although an effective HPV vaccine exists for both boys and girls, the number of boys getting their shots remains low.

Portis is 6-foot-10, 250 pounds; Mirotic is 6-foot-10, 220 pounds. Mirotic suffered a fractured bone in his face, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. He was evaluated for a concussion.

The Chicago Bulls season has gotten off to a rocky start even before the team's opening game Thursday at Toronto. Starting Lauri may not seem like a great way to win games, but that is not what this season will be about for the Chicago Bulls.
