    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.

    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.

    Nikola Mirotic (hand, neck) went to the locker room on Tuesday against the Lakers.

    Mirotic went to the locker room after a hard foul by Moritz Wagner. He had an open wound on his neck and looked closely at his left hand. Mirotic should be okay, but he had to close the open cut on his neck back in the locker room.

    Nikola Mirotic was a letdown in Sunday's start for Malcolm Brogdon, going 1-for-7 from the floor to finish with two points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes.

    Mirotic's playing time didn't change much despite the new role, so expectations might need to be tempered even if he does run away with the new gig. Middle-round numbers are easy in this type of workload but Mirotic might need to get hot to finish with a bang.

    Nikola Mirotic, not Tony Snell, will start for Malcolm Brogdon (plantar fascia) on Sunday.

    Snell was listed as a starter in Milwaukee's game notes but coach Budenholzer said that it'll be Mirotic getting the nod. It's a potentially big boost for his fantasy owners, as although Mirotic is unlikely to get enough usage to match his early-round days with the Pelicans, more playing time never hurts. Snell should see more minutes headed his way regardless, but is not much of a fantasy option.

    Nikola Mirotic needed just 25 minutes to drop 18 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and six 3-pointers against the Hornets on Saturday night.

    Mirotic scored only two points on Thursday but was feeling it tonight, going 6-of-10 from the field. There will be some bumps in the road because his teammates are good enough to win without needing major contributions from Mirotic, but middle-round value should be there at the end of the day.

    Nikola Mirotic played just 19 minutes on Thursday night, ending his evening with two points on 1-for-6 from the field to go with six rebounds, a steal and a block.

    Mirotic needs more playing time than this to guarantee middle-round value, and unfortunately for him the Bucks just didn't need to go all out against Indiana. Malcolm Brogdon was also subpar with seven points, four rebounds, two assists and a triple-one in 29 minutes. There's no reason to think too much about this one.

    Nikola Mirotic scored 13 points on 3-of-14 shooting with seven boards, a steal, two blocks and three treys on Monday.

    Mirotic logged 23 minutes off the bench which was enough time for him to jack up 10 3-pointers. He's always been a strong per-minute producer so his value will be safe as long as he can maintain his current role.

    Nikola Mirotic moved into the starting lineup on Saturday night but floundered in the opportunity, going 1-for-7 from the field to finish with three points, six rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

    Mirotic has been a solid middle-round guy coming off the bench for Milwaukee but couldn't hit the jets in a nice chance to carve out more work tonight. He's no stranger to the occasional dud and fantasy owners should just flush this one and move on.

    Nikola Mirotic scored 21 points off the bench in Wednesday's overtime win against the Kings, hitting 7-of-14 shots (including five threes) with eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 27 minutes.

    Especially if Giannis' minutes get managed, Mirotic looks like an easy threat for mid-round value and we all know what he can do when he gets the chance. Pat Connaughton added nine points, five rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a three off the bench but he's only worth looking at in deep formats.

    Nikola Mirotic scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers on Monday.

    Mirotic logged 23 minutes off the bench which is the magic number we've been waiting for. When he consistently gets minutes in the mid-20s Mirotic is a clear-cut top-70 player as his usage is insane when hes' on the court. Even with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee soreness) returning we can expect Mirotic to log minutes beside him to stretch the floor out as the Bucks have been doing all season.
