Report: Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell’s MRI determines left foot contusion
Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell has been diagnosed with a left foot contusion, after the MRI results came in this morning, according to the team. His status for Game 2 against the Oklahoma City Thunder will be determined Tuesday morning ahead of their matchup..
Being without Mitchell, their leading scorer, could be a huge potential blow for the Jazz, who could see fits trying to keep OKC contained enough to outscore them on the road.
The rookie has also proved to be a very effective defender, thanks to his long 7-foot wingspan and cat-like reflexes on the open court, making it a hit on defense as well.
The Jazz suffered a 116-108 loss in Game 1, despite Mitchell’s playoff-debut double-double of 27 points and 10 rebounds, leading the team in both stats and giving them a fighting chance against a red-hot Paul George, who went off for 36 points of his own.
