A second MRI on forward Otto Porter’s left foot revealed bone bruising that didn’t appear in the original exam, the Bulls said. Porter will continue his current treatment and then the organization will reassess where he’s at with the injury in two weeks.

Porter last played on Nov. 6, and was averaging 11.2 points per game for the Bulls. Second-year forward Chandler Hutchison has been starting in his place, but because of a shin issue he will also miss the game tonight.
