The star of the Utah Jazz Donovan Mitchell is dealing with an ankle injury as his team battles the Los Angeles Clippers in the second round of the playoffs. The 24-year-old guard most recently played 38 minutes and scored 21 points as the Jazz lost Game 5 against the Clippers.
Utah entered the playoffs as the number one seed in in the Western Conference but now is on the brink of elimination after losing three straight games to the Clippers and now trails 2-3.
“It’s something I’m going to have to deal with [the rest of the playoffs]. It f*cking sucks. … You’ve got to find a way to make it happen. It’s tough, but I’ve got to find a way. Otherwise, I’m going to be home,” Mitchell said, per Tim MacMahon.
