Nikola Mirotic was able to do "most" of Tuesday's practice, and Alvin Gentry says that he's getting close to returning.
It was reported yesterday that Mirotic is likely to return this week, and this is certainly another positive development. The long wait for owners appears to be nearly over, and while Mirotic may have a hard time taking the starting job back from Julius Randle, he'll need to go right back into all fantasy lineups upon returning. Deep-league owners who have been using Darius Miller or Solomon Hill should expect less going forward.
