Mirotic tallied 20 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks, and two assists in 33 minutes during Saturday's 125-115 victory over the Nuggets.
Mirotic recorded double-digit rebounds for the ninth consecutive game, adding 20 points including three triples. He continues to work his way back from a minor ankle concern, putting up his highest scoring game in almost two weeks. He is on track for a career-best season and it goes without saying that he should be on a roster everywhere.
Mirotic tallied 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 27 minutes in Friday's 129-124 win over the Knicks.
Mirotic's shot was a little rusty but he managed to scrape together a double-double in this fast-paced affair. Mirotic is in no danger of losing his job, but Julius Randle performed admirably while Mirotic was sidelined. In games with a high Over/Under like this one, there should be plenty of room for both big men to shine, but Randle's recent tenure makes an argument for more playing time, which could hinder Mirotic's production a bit.
Mirotic missed a pair of games earlier in the week with an ankle injury, and he appeared to tweak the ankle during Wednesday's loss to Minnesota. He was set to undergo an MRI on Thursday, and that apparently came back clean, and his absence from the injury report should clear him for Friday's contest. Mirotic finished Wednesday's game with 16 points and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes, marking his seventh straight game with at least 10 boards.
Mirotic will undergo an MRI on his injured right ankle Thursday, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
Mirotic exited Wednesday's contest early after landing awkwardly on his right ankle, which is the same ankle that caused him to miss the two previous games. Mirotic's status for Friday's game against the Knicks is questionable at this time, and more information on his status will come following Thursday's MRI.
Mirotic left Wednesday's loss at Minnesota late in the fourth quarter with an apparent right ankle injury, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
Mirotic landed awkwardly on his right ankle and limped off the court in the closing minutes and did not return. He had missed the last two games with a sprained right ankle, so this could be a significant setback.
