In the ongoing NBA Trade Deadline drama, it looks like we have another piece to the puzzle. Nikola Mirotic seems to have developed the same lower leg issue Rodney Hood has been dealing with the past week according to Darnell Mayburry of the Athletic.
Lot of confusion at #Bulls practice regarding Nikola Mirotic. He was seen shooting w/ the team prior to practice but then pulled aside by Fred Hoiberg for a chat. Hoiberg says Mirotic has a lower leg issue. Expects him to travel. Short on answers beyond that. #BullsNation— Darnell Mayberry (@DarnellMayberry) January 30, 2018
Apparently, Niko was seen shooting with the team then was pulled aside by Fred Hoiberg for a chat. After that, Hoiberg said he had the “lower leg issue.”
For those who are wondering at home, Rodney Hood is once again being held out of another game due to “lower leg soreness.”
Rodney Hood is out for the game tomorrow due to his lower leg contusion.— Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) January 29, 2018
We might be close to a potential trade, or these injuries might be for real. OR maybe it’s a trade.
