NOTES

BULLS: Forward Nikola Mirotic has decided not to have surgery to repair the broken bones in his face.

Vice president of basketball operations John Paxson told Chicago’s WBBM-AM 780 that Mirotic decided to let the fractures heal on their own.

Mirotic suffered several broken bones as well as a concussion when he got into a fight with teammate Bobby Portis on Oct. 17.
