Donovan Mitchell’s turn to get injured

Every evening, the list of injured gets longer, and it’s the turn of Donovan Mitchell to hold the back of the left thigh after a drive and a ball came out in the corner. Limited to 9 points and 4 of 15 on shots in the loss to the Mavs with a +/- of -32, the All-Star guard will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to find out the severity of his injury.

“It’s the playoffs, I have to find a way to play” he warns as the Jazz find themselves with their backs to the wall, down 3-2 against Dallas. “We’ll see how I feel, but I’m a competitor.”

The Jazz trailed by 28 points when Donovan Mitchell was injured and left the field, five minutes from the end of the game. Thursday is Game 6, and it would obviously be a big blow for the Jazz if their fullback was forced to forfeit.

So far, the fullback is missing out on this first round with 26.0 points on 38% on shots, including 20% ​​from 3-pointers.

“Credit goes to Dorian Finney-Smith” he acknowledges. “I didn’t play the best game of my career, nor of the playoffs. The positions I had were not the easiest. I’m just trying to find solutions. »

If Donovan Mitchell is absent from Game 6, Jordan Clarkson will take his place in the starting five.
