The Chicago Bulls appear to be finally getting past the entire ordeal involving the altercation between veteran forwards Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic. This has impacted Mirotic more than initially anticipated beyond the physical injuries as the missed time on the court this season has cost him $1 million in potential contract bonuses, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN. The mid-October altercation with teammate Bobby Portis not only sidelined Nikola Mirotic for the first six weeks of the season with a concussion and facial injury but will cost the forward $1 million in potential bonus money. Each of the four statistical benchmarks valued at $250K apiece applied only if Mirotic appeared in 65 games or more. Mirotic has already missed 20 games. This is a sizeable chunk of extra money made for Mirotic, who can enter the free agent market next summer after his one-year, $12.5 million deal expires.
