Mirotic played 66 games for the Bulls last season and averaged 11.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.7 blocks and 2.0 three-pointers in 25 minutes per game. He shot 40.7 percent from the field, 39.0 percent from behind the arc and 80.7 percent from the charity stripe.
Mirotic has tantalizing talent as he can both shoot from behind the arc and drive the lane, a rare combo for a player of his size. He still has a ways to go on the defensive end, but he could be in for increased playing next season as the Bulls attempt to get younger.
Nikola Mirotic finished with 32 points (10-17 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, five steals, and three blocked shots in 39 minutes during Wednesday's win against the 76ers.
It was a throwaway game to end a severely disappointing season for the Chicago Bulls , but Mirotic made the most of the opportunity. He turned a corner after returning from a 16 absence, scoring 20-plus points six times in his final 20 games. It will be interesting to see how he fits in the Bulls long-term plan, but he has potential to be a valuable rotation player.
Nikola Mirotic posted 20 points (6-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and two steals across 37 minutes during the Chicago Bulls ' 121-116 win over the Pelicans on Monday.
Mirotic drew the start at power forward with Pau Gasol (knee) shut down for the season, and he scored 20 points or more for the fourth time in the last eight contests. Though Mirotic may see less time in the season finale against the 76ers on Wednesday since the Bulls have been eliminated from playoff contention, he will likely make for a decent option in fantasy so long as he doesn't sit out.
Nikola Mirotic is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Heat, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.
With Taj Gibson still sidelined with a rib injury, Mirotic is expected to enter the starting lineup. The Chicago Bulls have been starting rookie Bobby Portis for Gibson over the last three games, but they've elected to change things up and start Mirotic. Over his last five outings, Mirotic is averaging 20.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 33 minutes per game, so look for him to continue to see big minutes Thursday.
Nikola Mirotic posted 20 points (6-9 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block across 29 minutes during the Chicago Bulls ' 108-92 loss to the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
Mirotic has scored 19 points or more in four of the last five games while receiving fairly heavy minutes. He has also made 23 three-pointers over that same stretch. Though the Bulls may be unlikely to make the playoffs at this point, Chicago will probably ride the hot hand, and Mirotic could continue to be a factor in fantasy over the final four games.
