A key contributor won’t be in the lineup for the Chicago Bulls when they tip off against Houston on Saturday.
Swingman Otto Porter Jr. has been ruled out against the Rockets with a left foot sprain, with no timetable for his return.
“It’s a soft-tissue injury, so it’s something that’s difficult to put a timetable on,” Bulls coach Jim Boylen said during Friday’s practice. “That’s about as easy as I could say. We’re not exactly sure.
“I don’t want to give you a definite timetable because it could be sooner or longer than maybe we see,” he added. “I know that’s vague and I’m sorry for that, but that’s the kind of injury it is.”
