According to the official announcement, Mirotic has already played feeling discomfort in the final stretch of the Liga Endesa. Since the end of the 2021-22 season, the star player has been under the care of the club's medical services.

However, according to Telesport.rs, Mirotic suffered an Achilles tendon injury and will be out of basketball action for the next 6 months.

The media outlet further reports that Chris Singleton has an offer from Barca. The American big man was previously linked with Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade.

Nikola Mirotic was the main factor behind Barcelona's success in the last EuroLeague regular season, which ended with the Catalan squad at the very top of the standings.

Nevertheless, Barca fell short in the semifinal against Real Madrid and captured third place in the competition.

Mirotic averaged 16.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 20.1 PIR over 38 EuroLeague games this past season while also shooting an impressive 46.3% from the 3-point zone. Such stat line granted him the EuroLeague MVP honors for the first time in his career.

The 31-year-old forward was also named to the All-EuroLeague First Team.

Three frontcourt line players of Nigel Hayes-Davis, Rolands Smits, and Brandon Davies have already left Barca this off-season. However, Sarunas Jasikevicius' team was bolstered by the big men arrivals of Jan Vesely and Oscar da Silva.
