    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Had stitches taken out Wednesday

    Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Mirotic (appendectomy) will get his stitches out Wednesday, and remains out for weeks, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Hoiberg said that Mirotic is still in a lot of pain and has lost around 15 pounds while out after an appendectomy. Due to the severity of his injury and the fact that he had to go on an all-liquid diet for a few days, it is likely that Mirotic will need time even after the All-Star break to recover. In his absence, look for Bobby Portis to gain extra playing time.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Remains without return timetable

    Mirotic (appendectomy) is without a firm timetable for his return, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports. Coach Fred Hoiberg indicated Monday that Mirotic has noticed improvement since being released from the hospital last week after undergoing an appendectomy along with a follow-up procedure for a hematoma. However, it's still not a given that Mirotic will be back in the fold immediately after the All-Star break, as the forward is still trying to regain weight and increase his activity after the appendectomy required him to go on a liquid diet for a few days. His ongoing absence will continue to open up extra playing time for Bobby Portis.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Released from hospital

    Mirotic (appendectomy) has been released from the hospital following two surgical procedures, Yahoo's Shams Charania reports. Mirotic's timetable for a return is set for sometime after the All-Star break, although there's currently no specificity as to how much time he'll need for a full recovery. In his extended absence, Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis are slated to see increased minutes until Mirotic's return.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Remains hospitalized following appendectomy

    Mirotic (appendectomy) still remains hospitalized following surgery, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. Though the general sentiment from the Bulls has been that Mirotic will be sidelined through the end of the All-Star break, it sounds like his absence could linger even further beyond that, as coach Fred Hoiberg indicated that there's no timetable for the 24-year-old's return. With Mirotic out of commission, Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis should continue to see enhanced roles in the Bulls' frontcourt.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Undergoes appendectomy Wednesday

    Mirotic underwent an appendectomy Wednesday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! reports. There's little doubt that Mirotic will miss Thursday's game against the Lakers in Los Angeles, with a return after the All-Star game expected. In his stead, Bobby Portis and Doug McDermott should play a larger role in the frontcourt rotation.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Scores 15 points in loss

    Mirotic compiled 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight boards, two assists, one steal, and one block across 22 minutes in Monday's 89-84 loss to the Heat. Mirotic has reached double figures in the scoring column in two straight games, but after he preceded those contests with a five-game stretch in which he averaged 4.8 points on 17.1 percent shooting, it's probably too early to buy into a resurgence. His playing time and production has simply been too volatile this season to make him worth consideration in DFS cash game lineups.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Scores 17 off the bench Saturday

    Mirotic scored 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding six rebounds, an assist and a steal in 25 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Cavaliers. He surprisingly hasn't seen a big increase in his minutes or production since Joakim Noah (shoulder) went down, as coach Fred Hoiberg has kept Mirotic in a bench role and used Taj Gibson and Tony Snell in his starting five instead. Mirotic is a streaky scorer, so he could go on a run even as a reserve, but as long as he's seeing less than a starter's workload his fantasy value will be capped.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Plays 21 minutes off bench in win

    Mirotic tallied 10 points (3-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, and one assist across 21 minutes in Monday's 111-101 win over the Pistons. Mirotic came off the bench for a second straight game, and was finally able to get his shooting back on track after going 2-for-17 from the field over the Bulls' previous two games. Though Mirotic noticed a mild uptick in playing time with Joakim Noah (shoulder) out with a season-ending injury, he'll need to continue shooting well in order to displace Tony Snell as the starting small forward.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Will come off the bench Friday

    Mirotic will come off the bench Friday versus the Mavericks, Nick Hoiberg of reports. Mirotic struggled mightily Thursday, posting only 7 points (2-13 FG, 1-5 3PT, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one block, and five turnovers in 24 minutes of action. Perhaps as motivation he will come off the bench Friday for the first time in 13 games. The move to the bench is likely temporary, but it is a situation to monitor.

    Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Scores 17 points Tuesday

    Mirotic managed 17 points (6-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 31 minutes during the Bulls' 106-101 loss versus the Bucks on Tuesday. Mirotic getting minutes at small forward has enabled him to play an increased role of late. Over the last five contests, the 24-year-old sophomore is averaging 14.6 points (43.1 FG, 38.7 3Pt, 73.3 FT), 7.6 rebounds, 1.6 steals, one assist, and 0.8 blocks in 31 minutes per game. If he can keep performing at that level, he is worth a look in most leagues.
