Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Ruled out for next five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic (face) will sit out Friday's game against the Hornets and won't travel with the the Bulls for their upcoming four-game road trip, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Mirotic returned to practice Monday following a month-long absence to recover from a concussion and facial fractures. He's currently attempting to get back into basketball shape and will likely still need a week or two in order to get get the green light to take the court. Mirotic will miss the team's upcoming four-game road trip as a result, which means his next opportunity to play will be a Nov. 26 matchup against the Heat. Coach Fred Hoiberg said Lauri Markkanen is locked into the starting power forward role, even when Mirotic is back, so look for Markkanen to take on the bulk of the workload moving forward.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Present at practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic (face) returned to practice Monday, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Mirotic was observed going through shooting drills over the weekend, and his focus is now on returning to game shape after missing the last four weeks following a highly publicized scuffle with teammate Bobby Portis. "The timeline for him getting back is all how he's feeling and recovering from what he went through," VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson said. "He obviously has to get his conditioning up to a level that he needs to. That's all a process." The Bulls initially gave Mirotic a 4-to-6-week timetable, so he appears to be progressing at about the expected rate, though it's unclear when he'll be given the green light to return to game action. Further complicating the matter is the fact that Mirotic and Porits are apparently yet to reconcile, which Paxson hopes will happen soon. "They are adults," Paxson said. "This is our workplace. They're both part of the team. I think it's pretty simple."

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Progresses to shooting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic (face) progressed to shooting for the first time Saturday, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Mirotic exited the league's concussion protocol Nov. 3 and up to this point was working out on a stationary bike to avoid impact work. However, he's apparently dealing with less discomfort, allowing him to shoot a basketball. There is still no firm timeline for a return, but him being back before December seems to be the goal.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Out of concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic (face) is no longer in the league's concussion protocol, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Per coach Fred Hoiberg, Mirotic has recently started working out on a stationary bike but is unable to do any impact work due to ongoing soreness in his face. Mirotic remains without a firm return timeline, but the general belief is that he could be back on the court sometime in late-November.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Won't have surgery for facial fractures
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic (concussion) has opted not to have surgery to repair his facial fractures, CBS Chicago reports.

Mirotic is still in the league-mandated concussion protocol and was going to have to wait until he was cleared from those symptoms in order to have the surgery performed. However, he'll now avoid the surgery completely and will elect to let the facial fractures heal on their own. Mirotic is expected to go through light activity Tuesday, including supervised bike training, though vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said he doesn't expect to have him back anytime soon. "There's going to be a protocol now for him getting back to doing anything," Paxson said. "It starts with the movement. The better he feels, if he's not having any symptoms, he can get on the court and then start running and all those types of things. But with the facial fractures, what still has to be determined is if he's going to eventually play with a mask, those types of things. It's going to be a process." More updates should be provided as Mirotic continues to go through the recovery process, but as it currently stands, he's still quite a ways off from a return.
