Fred Hoiberg Rumors

Nick Friedell: Bobby Portis was asked today after practice if he understood why he wasn’t getting minutes earlier in the year: “Nah, I didn’t really know what I could do to get minutes,” he said. “The one thing that I know that I always do is just come in here every day, work as hard as I can, let the dominos fall how they fall. Every day I come in here, just bust my butt for some minutes, but sometimes it wouldn’t work. I always kept faith in God, knew that it would eventually come around. You know even when I went to the D-League I felt that it was helping me, having to go down there and get some confidence.”
