  • Mirotic went scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) over 17 minutes in the Pelicans' 121-117 win over the Clippers on Monday but added two rebounds and one assist. Mirotic's minutes are still being managed carefully following his return from an ankle injury, and judging by his minimal output Monday, the issue may still be impacting him to an extent. The 27-year-old had logged 22 and 27 minutes in his first two games back, however, so it's uncertain if the reduced playing time against the Pelicans was simply more the byproduct of a coach's decision. What is clear is that Mirotic has struggled with his shot in the last two contests while going just 3-for-11 from the field, including 1-for-8 from three-point range.

  • Mirotic had nine points (3-8 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, and three blocks in 27 minutes during Saturday's 110-106 loss to the Timberwolves. Mirotic surpassed his 25-minute limit in this his second game back following a 12-game absence with an ankle injury. Julius Randle is still starting alongside Anthony Davis and putting up impressive per-game stats, but Mirotic represents the better fit on both ends. Regardless of whether or not another lineup shakeup is on the horizon, there are more than enough minutes to go around.

  • Mirotic will have a 25 minute limit Saturday, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Mirotic, who scored 17 points in his return to the lineup Thursday, will continue to play with a minutes limit. He'd previously missed 12 games with an injured ankle, so the minit limit is precautionary and will likely last until coach Alvin Gentry is confident that Mirotic isn't at too high a risk of experiencing a setback.

  • Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Available Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Mirotic (ankle) is available to play Wednesday against the Cavaliers. As expected, Mirotic will be available for Wednesday's game and will likely see 20 minutes of run. It's unclear if he'll start yet, but it's likely that coach Alvin Gentry will ease the veteran forward into the lineup as he's fresh off of a 12 game absence due to a right ankle injury.

  • Mirotic is expected to play Wednesday night against the Cavaliers but will play under a minutes restriction, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. According to coach Alvin Gentry, Mirotic, who has missed the past 12 games with an ankle injury, will likely play Wednesday, but will be allowed to play, at most, "20 minutes". Look for an official update on Mirotic's availability and starting status to be given closer to game-time.
