Injuries to key Bulls players last season finally lead to minutes for Nikola Mirotic, and under new head coach Fred Hoiberg, Mirotic will receive a lot more minutes coming off the bench. Mirotic averaged 10.2 and 4.9 rebounds per game in average of 20.2 minutes per game in 82 regular season games last year. If Mirotic gets about 6 or 7 more minutes per game this year, you could see him in the running for the award.
