Doubtful appendicitis/hematoma Open link
3/4/2016 2:01 PM
Mirotic missed the past 16 games and is listed as doubtful Saturday vs HOU. He was able to go through parts of Friday's practice and has a long way to go to get into shape, but it seems like a positive development that he isn't patently ruled out for Saturday's game.

Playing STARTING Open link
12/21/2015 5:20 PM
Mirotic is active for Monday's game and STARTING at SF. Tony Snell moves to the bench, and Snell and Doug McDermott will likely see their minutes squeezed to get Bobby Portis more minutes off the bench.
Playing rumored that Mirotic may start at SF over Snell Open link
12/21/2015 3:00 PM
Zach Lowe tweeted out that he's hearing Mirotic may start at SF over Tony Snell on Monday. If that happens, the cascade effect could see Snell or McDermott booted out of the rotation. The purpose of the move is likely to help facilitate getting Bobby Portis regular minutes in the Bulls' frontcourt rotation.
Playing concussion Open link
12/5/2015 5:20 PM
Mirotic is active for Saturday's game (concussion). He passed the concussion tests necesarry, and he is expected to start Saturday.
Questionable concussion Open link
12/4/2015 1:05 PM
Mirotic is questionable for Saturday's game (concussion). He was feeling better Friday, but he'll need to pass concussion testing before getting cleared to play, keeping him questionable at best for Saturday. Noah would likely start if Mirotic is out.
Questionable  Open link
12/2/2015 8:25 PM
Mirotic left Wednesday's game and did not return with concussion symptoms. He will have to pass the concussion protocol before he plays again.
Playing listed as starter for Friday's game Open link
11/11/2015 12:54 PM
Mirotic is considered the starting PF by Hoiberg for Friday's game, but Hoiberg said the same thing for Monday's game while always planning to start Noah, whom ended up not playing due to injury anyway. In other words, don't drop Mirotic in season-long leagues. He's good, and even off the bench, he should be useful, if it comes to that.
Playing ?moving to bench? Open link
11/9/2015 1:45 PM
The Bulls said that there aren't any plans to change the starting lineup, but Noah worked with the starters Monday, and Mirotic was reported to be the player most likely to move to the bench to accommodate the change. Don't make any rash decisions in year-long leagues, but this certainly changes the dynamic in daily games for Monday's game against the Sixers.
Drafting in an 8 cat roto league right now (competitive) and he went at 110.
How far has his value fallen now that he's lost the starting job as well as dealing with a back strain? Still worth a top-100 pick or wait to see if he falls to 120 or so?
