Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell was examined by medical staff in his recovery from a sprained ankle and it was determined he would be re-evaluated in one week, the team announced on Friday (Twitter link).
Mitchell suffered the ankle injury on April 16, but fortunately for both him and the Jazz, an MRI revealed no structural damage. He has steadily progressed and despite his absence, the Jazz remain in first place in the Western Conference with a 49-18 record.
Before the injury, Mitchell was in the midst of a career season, averaging a career-high 26.4 PPG along with 5.2 APG and 4.4 RPG in 53 games. With the regular season winding down, it remains to be seen how much time the two-time All-Star will have to ramp up before the postseason.
