Donovan Mitchell (finger) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Orlando Magic.
Mitchell will miss Cleveland's matchup against the Magic thanks to a finger sprain. It's not a serious issue, and he doesn't seem to have much of a risk of missing any playoff games. Fantasy managers can look for veterans Ricky Rubio and Danny Green to get more minutes in his absence on Thursday night.
Donovan Mitchell produced 43 points (15-23 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one block over minutes in the Cavaliers’ 117-113 win over the Magic.
Spida was absolutely on fire Tuesday, scoring a team high 43 points on an efficient 65.2% field goal percentage and 55.6% shooting beyond the three point line. Mitchell also made history in this game, as he became the fifth player over the last 30 seasons with four straight 40 point performances — a fitting stat for the best season of his career so far. The 26 year old is currently averaging 28.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists on 32.1% usage, and he will look to keep this momentum going into a rematch on Thursday with the Magic.
Donovan Mitchell recorded 22 points (8-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block over 36 minutes in the Cavaliers’ 108-91 win against the Rockets.
The superstar guard put in a solid performance Sunday, as he shot an efficient 50.0% from the field and 44.4% beyond the arc en route to his seventh straight performance with at least 20 points. He also had an impact on all facets of the game, logging at least one tally in each of the statistical categories. With his career season winding to a finish, Mitchell is averaging 27.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists.
Donovan Mitchell notched 40 points (14-34 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and one block over 47 minutes of play in the Cavaliers’ 118-114 overtime win over the Celtics.
Spida was dominant in the overtime win despite his inefficient shooting, as his scoring output marked his second 40+ point performance in the past three games. He also recorded a double-double with 11 rebounds, which was his fourth of the season, on 47 minutes — the highest total since his 71 point performance on January 2. Mitchell will look to continue his career year in Wednesday’s clash against the Heat.
Donovan Mitchell (finger) will play in Monday night's game against the Boston Celtics.
Mitchell is dealing with a finger injury that left him on the team's initial injury report for Monday night. They have evaluated his injury and upgraded him to active, however, and he should be well enough to play at full capacity in a matchup against the Celtics.
