Mirotic Injury Details Revealed
Sunday, Feb. 12
Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago provided some more details about the injury:
Mirotic Has Struggled Amid Reduced Minutes
Mirotic entered the day averaging nine points and 5.1 rebounds in 48 games this season.
The 26-year-old has been a bit of a disappointment this season after two solid campaigns to start his career. The 2011 first-round pick made the All-Rookie first team when he joined the Bulls for the 2014-15 season. He was even better in 2015-16 while moving into the starting lineup for a large portion of the year.
Unfortunately, Mirotic has lost out on minutes to Robin Lopez and Taj Gibson and is averaging the fewest points per game of his career.
Per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the power forward is also one of the players Wade and Butler targeted when discussing the team's lack of effort after a loss.
While he still has talent as a big who can step outside and hit three-pointers, there are serious question marks about his future.
Bobby Portis should get more playing time with Mirotic unavailable.
