Donovan Mitchell's Foot Injury Diagnosed as Contusion, Game 2 Status TBD

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.

Updating a previous report, Mitchell (foot) is now questionable for Game 2 against the Thunder on Wednesday.

Mitchell suffered a foot injury in the first half of Game 1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday when Corey Brewer stepped on his left foot. However, he was pulled just a minute later after the coaching staff saw him limping on the court after hitting a jumper.

After the game Mitchell told reporters he "stubbed" his toe.




"I was just limping, and they saw me limping and thought I needed to come out, "but I was just being a baby". "And then he went back".

Mitchell impressed in his first playoff game, recording 27 points on 11-of-22 shooting and 10 rebounds in 35 minutes of action. "He's fine in the sense that he's not injured in any way but I think there's the question of hurting and we won't know that until a couple days", Snyder said.

Jazz coach Quin Snyder made a decision to yank Mitchell for the final 3:19 of Sunday's loss for fear or severely injuring the foot. "I'm sure he'll undergo further imaging, and we'll update that tomorrow".
