Nearly two months have passed since Nikola Mirotic was hospitalized following a fight with teammate Bobby Portis in practice, but on Friday evening, the Chicago Bulls forward returned to action against the Charlotte Hornets. Both Mirotic and Portis came off the bench for Fred Hoiberg’s team, but in addition to the noteworthy effort to simply make his 2017-2018 season debut, Mirotic also reflected on his time away and any lingering anger toward Portis or anyone else. “I’m not angry at anyone,” Mirotic told K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “I’m doing fine with myself. My family is great. There’s nothing to be angry about now. It’s all over. It’s a new beginning.”
