Mitchell eventually came back out from the locker room, but was kept out of the on-court action. The latest update was that the Jazz star was available to return, but the lopsided score meant they had no reason to risk him further.
Per Jazz PR, Donovan was available to return, but it was a coaching decision for him not to. Irrelevant at this point — Quin empties the bench down 120-98 with 3:26 to go.
