Portis was called for a flagrant 2 late in the fourth quarter of the Bulls’ 90-101 loss to the Wizards on Saturday.
Following the game, Meeks said that Portis tried to take Satoransky out.
“If you can’t get there, let him go, don’t try to take him out,” Meeks said. “Obviously, not everybody abides by those rules.”
Wizards guard Jodie Meeks on Bobby Portis' flagrant-2 in which Tomas Satoransky was hurt: “If a guy has a clear lane to the basket, if you can’t get there, let him go, don’t try to take him out. Obviously, not everybody abides by those rules.”
