Donovan Mitchell In Concussion Protocol, Won’t Play Wednesday

Jazz star Donovan Mitchell has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol and won’t be available to play on Wednesday night vs. Dallas, the team announced today.

Mitchell, who logged 34 minutes in a win over the Knicks on Tuesday night, didn’t leave the game early and the Jazz say it’s not immediately clear when he sustained the injury. He first experienced possible concussion symptoms on Wednesday morning, per team officials.

Mitchell’s availability for Friday’s rematch vs. the Mavericks, as well as subsequent contests, will be determined by how he progresses through the concussion protocol.

In the short term, the Jazz will be tasked with finding a way to replace Mitchell’s offensive production — he’s the team’s leading scorer this season with 23.4 PPG in 17 games. Utah figures to lean a little more on Mike Conley and Jordan Clarkson, with backup guards Miye Oni and Shaquille Harrison among the candidates to see additional minutes as well.
