Donovan Mitchell To Play in Game 2 After Toe Injury

However, the former Louisville standout did suffer an injury during Game 1 that forced him to the sideline, albeit briefly. Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported X-rays came back negative.

Playing in his first postseason game, Mitchell finished with 27 points on 11-of-22 shooting, plus 10 rebounds.

The best-of-seven series continues with Game 2 on Wednesday in Oklahoma City. Paul George sat the final minute with a right hip contusion, but he said afterward that he'll be ready to play Game 2. He led the Jazz and all rookies with 20.5 points per game, becoming the first rookie since Carmelo Anthony to lead a playoff team in scoring. Needless to say, the rookie did not disappoint after a stellar performance in the loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Mitchell exited Game 1 after the Jazz training staff noticed he was limping, but it appears Mitchell has avoided serious injury. These are the National Basketball Association playoffs, after all. We'll find out Wednesday night.
