In 17 games this season, Mitchell is averaging 20.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. The 22-year-old is shooting 41.8 percent from the field, 29.2 percent from beyond the arc and 80.3 percent from the free-throw line. The Jazz have an offensive rating of 112.8 when Mitchell is on the court and 109.8 when he's not.
Utah is struggling on offense this season. They are averaging just 105.5 points per game, 26th in the NBA. After making it to the second-round of the 2018 playoffs, many predicted the Jazz to be a contender in the rugged Western Conference this year, with Mitchell leading the way.
So far, though, that hasn't been the case. The Jazz are in 14th place in the West and got blown out by the Pacers at home on Monday, losing by a final score of 121-88. Getting Mitchell back in the lineup against the Nets should help the team.
