Mirotic available for Chicago Bulls in Game 4

MILWAUKEE (AP) Bulls rookie forward Nikola Mirotic is available for Saturday's Game 4 of the first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Mirotic missed Game 3 on Thursday with a bruised left knee and strained quadriceps. He was warming up outside the locker room before coach Tom Thibodeau said his key reserve was ready to return.

Thibodeau said: ''We'll go back to our old rotation. There's enough for everybody.''

The Bulls are going for a four-game sweep of the Bucks.

Mirotic was hurt Sunday in Game 2 while going for a loose ball.
