Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Scores 16 points in 30 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic registered 16 points (7-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks across 30 minutes Wednesday in New Orleans' win over Los Angeles.

When Mirotic was traded to the Pelicans, who could have foreseen that Emeka Okafor would be starting over him? It's no reason to worry, the big man might be in a bench-role but he continues to get starters minutes and produces like a starter. Mirotic could become a double-double machine playing alongside Anthony Davis, and his ability to knock down the three makes him one of the most intriguing fantasy options on the Pelicans. Mirotic's fantasy value saw one of the larger spikes amongst players moved at the deadline.

Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Set for bench role Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Mirotic will come off the bench for Wednesday's tilt with the Lakers.

It was reported earlier Wednesday that Mirotic would return to the starting five, but that's since been revised and he'll come off the bench for the second straight game. Despite working with the reserves, Mirotic should still see a near 30-minute role, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned with this update. Emeka Okafor will get the start instead, but will likely see limited minutes.

Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Returns to starting five Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic will re-enter the starting lineup at power forward for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Scott Kushner of The Advocate reports.

The Pelicans started Emeka Okafor over Mirotic on Sunday for defensive purposes, but will once again pivot back to Mirotic on Wednesday. The team will likely continue to switch between the two depending on the opposing matchup, though either way, Mirotic will almost always get the bulk of the workload. Fantasy owners can go ahead and fire up Mirotic as usual.

Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Double-doubles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic scored 21 points (7-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes in Monday's 118-103 victory over the Pistons.

Mirotic provided a huge double-double off the bench for the Pelicans Monday night. Emeka Okafor earned the start Monday for mainly defensive purposes, but Mirotic didn't take it too hard as he still shot lights out with a solid minute total on the night. Look for him to re-enter the starting lineup in their next game on Wednesday.

Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Will come off bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic will come off the bench Monday against the Pistons, Pelicans radio color analyst John DeShazier reports.

The Pelicans initially listed Mirotic as the starter, but coach Alvin Gentry will apparently pivot to veteran Emeka Okafor, who will start an NBA game for the first time in nearly five years. While the decision is somewhat of a puzzling one, it does make some sense from a defensive perspective, as Okafor can match up with Andre Drummond, while Anthony Davis handles Blake Griffin. Expect Mirotic to still play a key role off the bench, and it's likely his overall workload won't be greatly impacted. The 27-year-old played 49 minutes in Saturday's double-overtime win over the Nets.
