More on Bobby Portis Injury

KC Johnson: Hoiberg on Portis injury: "Bobby has been so durable early in his career. Just to see his reaction, you knew it was something serious when he went flying in the crowd. We’re thankful it wasn’t a more severe injury."
Bulls power forward Bobby Portis revealed Saturday that he has been playing through a foot injury for the past two months after an incident with a heat pack. Portis said the injury occurred before a March 4 game against the Los Angeles Clippers. "The heat pack burned me before the game," Portis said. "I was actually on the [trainer's] table. I couldn't feel it. I had my headphones in, but I didn't feel [the pack] burn through. ... Ever since then, it's been hurting."

One NBA executive suggests a trade where the Nets trade Kyrie to the Los Angeles Lakers and get three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert in return. “You could do three teams, Kyrie to the Lakers, Gobert to Brooklyn, and Russ to Utah, with the Jazz probably buying him out. That’s a longshot, though,” the executive said to Heavy’s own Sean Deveney. “It could be something that happens during the season, if the Nets get on the court and things go sideways — Ben Simmons is still not healthy, Durant is not happy, they’re struggling. At that point, the Nets are pretty much out of leverage, and the Lakers could send Westbrook and a pick for Kyrie, and it’s doubtful the Nets would get a better deal. Again, it is a long shot, but it is realistic.”
