Nikola Mirotic scored a team-high 25 points against the Pacers during a 104-92 loss on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers.
He's starting to come around here with three productive games in a row. Mirotic has played at least 29 minutes in each of his last three games, so those owners getting ready to push the panic button can take their finger away from it now. He's trending up and should be an early mid-round player. Nov 28 - 12:32 AM

Nikola Mirotic hit 4-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, eight rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes on Tuesday.

After a bit of a dry spell, Mirotic is suddenly feeling it again, hitting double digits in scoring in three straight games and averaging 13.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, a steal and 1.7 3-pointers over that stretch.
Nov 25 - 12:55 AM

Nikola Mirotic scored 18 points on 6-of-17 from the field against the Warriors on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one turnover.

He can't hit anything from deep this month and is down to 22.7 percent from beyond the long line in November. Mirotic's 36 minutes were his most since Oct. 30 and he actually played well in every other facet of the game. He should be able to get it going soon.
Nov 21 - 4:36 AM

Nikola Mirotic was quiet again vs. the Suns, posting 10 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 21 minutes.

He shot just 4-of-12 from the field and didn't attempt any free throws, but at least he contributed a few triples and steals. Mirotic's confidence seems rattled and his playing time is decreasing alongside his efficiency -- in the past five games he's averaging 8.6 points on 31.7 percent shooting. He's too good to cut outright, but owners should think about benching him until he regains his footing.
Nov 19 - 1:17 AM

Nikola Mirotic scored six points on 2-of-7 from the field with six rebounds and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

He's in one heck of a slump right now. Even before this game, he made just 28.0 percent from the field this month and he's seen his playing time dip to just 22 minutes per game in that span. Mirotic will eventually snap out of it and the chances of Joakim Noah dealing with knee pain at some point are pretty high, so Mirotic is a buy-low target.
Nov 16 - 10:51 PM

Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg said that he is planning on keeping Nikola Mirotic in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Pacers.

Hoiberg also said that he could change his mind, and it was already reported earlier that he was strongly considering inserting Joakim Noah into the starting lineup. Mirotic's job is probably safe for now, but he will have to play better if he wants to hold off Noah. Mirotic scored just three points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.
Nov 15 - 1:45 PM

Nikola Mirotic scored three points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

Mirotic apparently hates November more than shaving. He's been awful in his last six, making 28.0 percent from the field with averages of 8.3 points, 5.3 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.2 treys. He's an obvious buy-low target.
Nov 14 - 1:42 AM

Nikola Mirotic will "most likely" remain in the starting lineup for Friday's matchup with the Hornets, according to Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg.

Hoiberg said that the decision to keep Mirotic with the starting five for Friday's game is primarily matchup based, but he will reassess his starting lineup after that, so it sounds like Joakim Noah could soon be getting some opportunity to run with the starters. It'll be interesting to see if Hoiberg shakes up the starting five for Monday's game against the small ball Pacers.
Nov 12 - 2:16 PM

Nikola Mirotic, who appeared to be in jeopardy of losing his starting job earlier in the day, started and hit 6-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers for 20 points, 10 boards and two steals in a win over the Sixers.

He had really been struggling after a hot start to the season but got back on track tonight. Hopefully his next slump is several games away, as he's fun to watch when his shot is falling and he's active on the floor.
Nov 9 - 10:16 PM

Updating a previous report, Nikola Mirotic will start on Monday vs. the 76ers and Joakim Noah will come off the bench.

The Bulls listed Noah as the starter and that lasted until about five minutes before tip-off, so coach Fred Hoiberg might be eyeing the matchups with Nerlens Noel out for the 76ers. Hopefully we will have some clarity soon. Not cool, Hoiberg.
Nov 9 - 7:10 PM

Nikola Mirotic will come off the bench for Monday's game against the 76ers.

Joakim Noah will replace him in the starting lineup, but it's not a huge surprise because Mirotic has really slowed down over the past few games. There is a little bit of encouraging news for Mirotic because coach Fred Hoiberg said that his lineups aren't set in stone, and he should still see a good chunk of minutes off the bench. There's no reason to panic just yet and hopefully this will light a fire under Mirotic.
Nov 9 - 6:44 PM

Nikola Mirotic had another bad game against the Wolves on Saturday, making 1-of-8 from the field for four points with three rebounds and one steal in just 17 minutes.

That's two bad games in a row and foul trouble was the culprit here. The Bulls did go to another Joakim Noah-Pau Gasol lineup tonight and that has been a new wrinkle this week. Still, that lineup hasn't had too much success and Mirotic is a key piece to the offense. In other words, his owners should expect him to bounce back shortly.
Nov 7 - 10:29 PM

Nikola Mirotic had his worst game of the season on Thursday with two points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

Serge Ibaka can shut guys down and that's two bad ones in a row from Mirotic, but there is no need to worry. The Bulls did give Joakim Noah some of his minutes, which is unlikely to continue. Mirotic owners can expect him to turn it around over the weekend.
Nov 5 - 11:29 PM

Nikola Mirotic hit just 2-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, five rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's ugly loss to the Hornets.

This was not the right night to deploy Mirotic in daily leagues, but then again, he was probably due for an off game. He's off to a hot start this season and should bounce back in the next one.
Nov 3 - 9:28 PM

Nikola Mirotic scored 16 points on 4-of-12 shooting with three boards, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes vs. the Magic on Sunday.

This was actually the quietest night of his season so far and he was still able to put up solid numbers. Other than Pau Gasol, Mirotic is the only other frontcourt player in Chicago who will churn out reliable fantasy value on a nightly basis. Congats are in order if you were able to snag him in drafts.
