Donovan Mitchell hit 13-of-28 shots and three 3-pointers for 33 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a block in 39 minutes to lead the Jazz to a 113-96 win over the Thunder in Monday's Game 4, giving the Jazz a 3-1 lead in the series.
Mitchell broke Karl Malone's team playoff scoring record for a rookie with his 33 points tonight, as Malone scored 31 points in a game back in 1986. These two teams hate each other and there were six technical fouls handed out tonight, but Mitchell managed to stay out of most of the drama. He doesn't look like a rookie, and really hasn't all year, and the Jazz will look to put away the Thunder in Oklahoma City in Game 5 on Wednesday. However, a more likely scenario would be the Jazz ending the series in Game 6 back at home. Mitchell is a much needed offensive force on a team that thrives by playing defense, and this series has been the most entertaining matchup of the playoffs thus far. Apr 24 - 1:18 AM

Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, five turnovers and four 3-pointers in a win over the Thunder on Saturday.

He couldn't keep his 25-plus scoring streak alive, but Mitchell was active on defense and wasn't forcing shots while Ricky Rubio was rolling. Mitchell said before the game that he's still not 100 percent over his foot injury from Game 1, but he's been explosive as ever. Today was a good day for two incredible rookies to sandwich an action-packed Saturday slate of NBA action.

Donovan Mitchell (foot) is starting for Game 3 against the Thunder on Saturday.

The Jazz called him probable to play yesterday, but there was no way he'd miss this one. He'll look to score 27-plus points again as the Jazz try to take a 2-1 lead.
Apr 21 - 9:23 PM

Donovan Mitchell (foot) is probable for Saturday against the Thunder for Game 3.

He's playing. Mitchell played the part of superstar in a Game 2 win, scoring a game-high 28 points in 43 minutes. He was a game-time call for that one, but there was no doubt he'd play through the questionable tag.
Apr 20 - 4:25 PM

Donovan Mitchell (bruised left foot) finished Wednesday's road win with a game-high 28 points on 10-of-25 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 43 minutes.

Mitchell was a game-time decision after MRIs were negative for structural damage, but you couldn't tell he was injured by watching him play. He was instrumental in turning a 10-point deficit into a lead in the fourth quarter, and continues to reach new heights in his rookie season -- he and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are the only players to score 27+ points in their first two playoff appearances. He's unreal.
Apr 18 - 10:58 PM

Donovan Mitchell (bruised left foot) will start Game 2 on Wednesday.

Utah's star rookie briefly exited Game 1 due to "left foot soreness" but an MRI was negative and he should see another heavy workload tonight. There's a bit of risk here, but don't hesitate to fire him up in DFS.
Apr 18 - 7:10 PM

Donovan Mitchell (foot) is going through warmups for Game 2 on Wednesday.

He's a game-time decision, but most believe he is going to play in this huge contest. Mitchell went through shootaround this morning and he will have to test his foot out before the game. If he is limited, Royce O'Neale would likely have to see more minutes.
Apr 18 - 6:07 PM

Donovan Mitchell (bruised left foot) went through portions of Tuesday's practice and he remains questionable for Game 2.

It's unclear whether Mitchell took contact but he was spotted taking pull-up jumpers off the dribble, which bodes well. He's dismissed the possibility that he'll miss Game 2 but it looks like he could be headed for a game-time decision. We'll know more after Utah's shootaround on Wednesday.
Apr 17 - 3:53 PM

Donovan Mitchell's MRI revealed a bruised left foot and his status for Game 2 will be determined on Tuesday.

An initial report from ESPN's Chris Haynes stated that Mitchell would play in Game 2, and Mitchell himself downplayed the ailment as a "stubbed toe," but his status hasn't yet been officially determined. Utah will need Mitchell at his best to even the series at 1-1 on Wednesday, and it would be shocking if this contusion forces him to sit out. When asked if he thinks he'll be limited at all going forward, Mitchell replied, "No."
Apr 16 - 2:54 PM

MRI results were negative on Donovan Mitchell's left foot and he will play in Game 2 vs. the Thunder on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

The Jazz get a few days off before playing on Wednesday and the organization can breathe a sigh of relief, as their prized rookie seems to have suffered a minor injury during Game 1. The official designation was "left foot soreness" and Mitchell dismissed the injury as having "stubbed [his] toe," adding that he only exited the game because Utah's training staff noticed him limping. We'll have more updates in the coming days, but it appears the Rookie of the Year candidate will be ready to go for Game 2.
Apr 16 - 1:17 AM

Donovan Mitchell exited Sunday's game due to "left foot soreness," but he returned to finish with 27 points on 11-of-22 shooting, 10 boards, three assists, three 3-pointers, two steals and one block in 35 minutes.

Utah lost the game but the bigger issue is Mitchell's health going forward in the series. X-rays were negative on his left pinkie toe but he was limited once checking back in during the fourth quarter, and eventually left for good with the game out of reach. The good news is that coach Quin Snyder expects Mitchell to be ready for Game 2, Mitchell said he feels "fine ... just stubbed [his] toe," and Utah has two days off before playing on Wednesday. Despite the late injury, Mitchell finishes as the first player since LeBron James to have 25+ points and 10+ rebounds in a postseason debut. We should have multiple updates on his status over the next 48 hours.
Apr 15 - 9:20 PM

Donovan Mitchell was examined in Utah's locker room for an apparent foot injury on Sunday, but he has since returned.

Crisis averted. It's unclear when Mitchell got hurt but the Jazz should provide an update soon after the game.
Apr 15 - 8:26 PM

Donovan Mitchell couldn't get his shots to drop on Wednesday, going 6-of-23 from the field for 17 points, six boards, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

A victory would have made Utah the Northwest Division champs and handed them the No. 3 seed, but instead those honors went to the Blazers. This snaps a six-game win streak for the Jazz, but Mitchell has proven repeatedly that one bad game won't affect his confidence -- expect him to come out firing when Utah squares off vs. Oklahoma City in the first round of the playoffs.
Apr 12 - 1:26 AM

Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and four triples in Tuesday's 119-79 win over the Warriors.

Yes, that score is correct. Mitchell broke Damian Lillard's record for most 3-pointers as a rookie (186), but he's going to be all over the internet for a different reason -- he showed up to the game with a sweater that had the literal definition of a rookie on it. Your move, Ben Simmons.
Apr 10 - 11:24 PM

Donovan Mitchell posted a game-high 28 points across 38 minutes in Sunday's 112-97 road win against the Lakers.

Mitchell hit 9-of-18 from the field, including 3-of-7 from behind the 3-point line, while going 7-of-10 from the free-throw stripe. With the victory the Jazz were able to officially punch their ticket to the playoffs in the Western Conference, and their opponent will be determined this week. They're now within a game of the Trail Blazers for the third spot in the Western Conference, too.
