Nikola Mirotic said that he twisted his ankle twice on Tuesday but he believes he should be fine for Game 3 on Thursday.
" I stepped on a fan’s foot, but it was not that bad. Then I twisted it by myself. I wanted to stay on the floor and finish the game. I’m sure with two days of treatments, I’ll be ready to go next game." We’ll take his word for now but this should be something to keep an eye on as Niko has been playing through an assortment of injuries the last few weeks. He once again made some big shots last night as Pelicans now hold a 2-0 lead against the Blazers.
