  • Nikola Mirotic - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Nikola Mirotic put up 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting with six rebounds in Game 2 win on Friday.

    He had a similar performance to Game 1, but he is fitting into his role perfectly for the Bucks. Although he once again had one of the lowest plus/minus numbers on the entire team with a plus-2, he is making timely shots and showing up when the team needs him most. This starting lineup is working, so expect Mirotic to remain a starter for the entire Eastern Conference Finals.

  • Nikola Mirotic - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Nikola Mirotic started in Game 1 against the Raptors on Wednesday and put up 13 points and six rebounds on 3-of-9 shooting.

    The Bucks were making tough clutch shots and Mirotic was a part of that group as he hit a key 3-pointer and drew some fouls. He converted all six of his attempts from the stripe and added one block to the stat sheet. Mirotic was the only player on the Bucks with a negative plus/minus with a minus-5, but it could be for the best if he remains in the starting lineup as Malcolm Brogdon provides some nice energy off the bench.

  • Nikola Mirotic - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Nikola Mirotic will stick in the starting lineup against the Raptors in Game 1 on Wednesday.

    Malcolm Brogdon returned for the Bucks previous game, but it is Mirotic who will stick with the starters. Both Mirotic and Brogdon should see minutes in the high twenties to thirties and are worthy of looks in DFS leagues.

    Nikola Mirotic is expected to draw his second straight start in Game 3 versus the Celtics.

    Mirotic shot poorly in Game 2, but was extremely active and played a viable role in the Bucks' win. He will draw heavy ownership in DFS, but is a fantastic play regardless.

    Nikola Mirotic started in Tuesday's Game 2 against the Celtics and scored nine points on 3-of-10 shooting to go with nine rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Mirotic started over Sterling Brown tonight but picked up two quick fouls guarding Jaylen Brown in the first three minutes of the game. He never really got into a rhythm on the offensive end, but he was active on defense and helped ignite some fastbreaks. The Bucks like his floor spacing with Malcolm Brogdon (plantar fascia tear) out, but they'll have to figure out how to keep up on the defensive end.

    Nikola Mirotic will start in Game 2 against the Celtics on Tuesday.

    He'll start ahead of Sterling Brown who is active. Mirotic was part of a run in Game 1 which got the Bucks back within striking distance and brings much more firepower than Sterling Brown. His spacing will surely help Giannis Antetokounmpo get better looks.

    Nikola Mirotic chipped in 13 points and three 3-pointers in Sunday's Game 1 loss.

    Mirotic was a key player in a second-quarter run that saw a 15-point deficit become a two-point lead, but other than that short outburst he wasn't overly impactful. It's clear that Milwaukee will need someone else to step up with big offensive performances since Boston is throwing every body they can at Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Mirotic is certainly capable. If he can go on a tear it might change this series, and the Bucks will be looking for more out of him after they were embarrassed in Game 1.

    Nikola Mirotic sank three triples on his way to scoring 12 points for the second game in a row in Monday's Game 4 against the Pistons.

    Mirotic is still rounding into form and he's not doing much beyond hitting threes, but he should be able to contribute more in the next series as he gets his wind back.

    Nikola Mirotic (fractured/sprained left thumb) will play in Game 1 against the Pistons on Sunday but will be very limited.

    Mirotic probably won't play double-digit minutes unless the Bucks desperately need it. It's good to see him start to get eased back in, and he might be fully back by the time the second round starts.

    Nikola Mirotic (broken thumb) expects to make his return for Game 1 on Sunday.

    Mirotic has been sidelined since March 19 but went through a full practice on Friday, so at this point it'd be surprising if he wasn't available tomorrow. He'll give Milwaukee another lethal 3-point option.

    Nikola Mirotic (broken thumb) practiced in full on Friday, including scrimmaging, and he could be ready for Game 1 on Sunday vs. the Pistons according to coach Mike Budenholzer .

    Mirotic has been out since March 19 and he's right at the end of his 2-to-4 week timetable. He's not a lock to play but all signs point to Mirotic returning sooner than later.

  • Nikola Mirotic - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Although his season was cut short with a slight left thumb fracture, Nikola Mirotic who was a member of the HB6 produced top-70/50 value in 8/9-cat formats.

    His per-game value might have been that high, but his total value is top-150 due to his injury so his season could be considered as disappointing in the grand scheme of things. He was much more productive with the Pelicans than the Bucks, and his season started going downhill once he got traded. If he is on the Bucks next season, his ADP and value will be much lower than this season, but if he changes locations he can definitely maintain top-50 value.

    Nikola Mirotic (slight left thumb fracture) will miss at least the next two-to-four weeks.

    Mirotic just can't catch a break this season. D.J. Wilson, Ersan Ilyasova and Pau Gasol will have to pick up the slack and mend the blow. Mirotic can safely be dropped in all leagues with this news.

    Nikola Mirotic scored 23 points in 24 minutes with three 3-pointers and six rebounds, but he went to the locker room with a hand injury during Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

    Niko played his best game as a Buck, but there's some concern after he left the locker room with a bandage on his hand. If he misses time, the Bucks would likely replace him with Ersan Ilyasova, who can reasonably replicate Mirotic's production in many cases.
