Bulls’ Otto Porter Jr. will miss Saturday’s game against the Rockets

Porter has “a soft tissue injury so it’s something that’s difficult to put a timetable on,” coach Jim Boylen said.

The Bulls will be without Otto Porter Jr. on Saturday when they host Houston, and after that is anyone’s guess when the forward could return.

Porter suffered a left foot contusion in the win over Atlanta, but afterward appeared to be walking fine. According to coach Jim Boylen, however, when Porter woke up Sunday, those good feelings about a quick recovery were gone. “It’s a soft tissue injury so it’s something that’s difficult to put a timetable on,” Boylen said. “We’re not exactly sure.”
