Olimpia Milano, with Nikola Mirotic is another story

Olimpia Milano, with Nikola Mirotic is another story

After 20 races in the pits, the former Barcelona player put on a show in Sassari

He remained watching his companions for a long time. Mirotic spent 20 races in the pits due to the well-known Achilles tendon problem. Finally, against Sassari, he returned to the field, confirming that he is a player from another category. In the red and white success (80-65), Mirotic participated with 16 points in 15 minutes of play overall. An excellent return.

At this point, everything changes. Having Mirotic available again allows Messina to look to the future with more serenity. The talent of the Montenegrin naturalized Spaniard is immense, as is his ability to make a difference on the pitch with his experience. Obviously, it cannot be assumed that Mirotic is already in top condition, so we will have to go easy on the playing time.

Coach Messina knows this perfectly. It also applies to Melli and Voigtmann, absent against Dinamo because they were struggling with some physical discomfort: “We’ll see in the next few days. Johannes was mainly a precautionary thing, while Nicolò had cramps, overload and is the precursor to a possible injury On both of us we will have to be very careful about the minutes, so will Mirotic”, Messina himself said in the press conference.
