The Cleveland Cavaliers announced that Donovan Mitchell received a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection on Monday to treat the knee injury that has kept him out of the team's last two games.

Donovan Mitchell will be out for the next three games against the Boston Celtics, Atlanta Hawks and Minnesota Timberwolves. The Cavaliers said his status will be re-evaluated over the weekend and updated as appropriate.

The earliest that Mitchell will be able to return for the Cavaliers would potentially be against the Brooklyn Nets, but that is depending on the update after he is evaluated.

The Cavaliers hope that Mitchell is not out for long, so he could return to the floor and help the team secure as high of a seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs as possible.

Currently, Cleveland sits at 39-21 overall, half of a game back of the Milwaukee Bucks for second in the conference. The team is coming off of a tough loss to an undermanned New York Knicks team on Sunday. A game in which Mitchell did not play.

Luckily, the Cavaliers are pretty secure in a playoff spot, so as long as they do not fall off of a cliff down the stretch, they should be in decent shape.

For now, the Cavaliers will try to stay afloat as they wait for an update on their star this weekend. It will be a tall task to beat teams like the Celtics and Timberwolves, but the Hawks are a beatable team without Trae Young as well. It will be worth monitoring reports come this weekend.
