After missing recent Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and ACB action due to personal reasons, Nikola Mirotic resumed practice Wednesday. His team shared a video on social media presenting the 29-year-old forward going through shooting drills.

Mirotic sat out the last five games, three EuroLeague, and two domestic matchups, but his side stood tall on the four latest occasions. Up next, the second game in a row in Russia bringing up CSKA Moscow Friday following Tuesday’s win over Khimki Moscow Region. At the domestic level, a home affair opposite Movistar Estudiantes is scheduled to be held Sunday.

Prior to being sidelined, Mirotic averaged 16.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.0 assists per EuroLeague contest and also packed 14.4 points per game in the Spanish league. His team is 13-6 in Europe’s premier club competition and 15-3 in the ACB.
