Nikola Mirotic is expected to return to the Milwaukee Bucks for game 1 tomorrow against the Detroit Pistons.
Mirotic has been out for the last month with a fractured thumb.
"Not much soreness, as we expected. I should be ready to go," said Mirotic.
Mirotic added that he was hungry for playoff basketball.
"This is going to be my fourth playoffs in five years. The guys are ready, but the message from our coach is that there's nothing different in the playoffs. We need to play our same basketball. Play hard. I think we should be fine. We are a very deep team and very hungry."
