Utah Jazz reveal injury status of Donovan Mitchell and the others before their matchup against the heat
Mitchell confirmed that this injury isn’t as serious as the one that kept him out for a run of 16 games last season. He say out the three game road trip as a precaution. He has however been listed as day-to-day now, with a very real possibility of him suiting up against the impressive Miami.
The Jazz would need all the help they can get from their star man to stop Jimmy butler and co. Granted they do have Jordan Clarkson and Rudy Gobert who are playing their socks off, but the Heat are no slouch either.
