Mitchell recorded 24 points (8-21 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 5-6 FT). three rebounds, to assists and two steals over 36 minutes in Wednesday's 123-117 win over the Kings. Mithell's shooting was a bit fepid on Wednesday as he managed 38 percent from the floor and 3-for-10 from long range. Nevertheless, the sophomore led his team in scoring and is poised for a breakout performance this season.
Mitchell managed 13 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three assists across 17 minutes in the Jazz's 132-93 preseason win over the Kings on Thursday. The Jazz's starting five all played minutes in the upper teens Thursday, affording Mitchell enough time to generate his fourth straight double-digit scoring effort. The 22-year-old bounced back from his second sub-40-percent shooting night with a preseason-high 66.7 percent success rate from the field Thursday. Mitchell enjoyed a solid exhibition slate overall, and he appears ready to build on his stellar rookie campaign as a focal point of Utah's offense again this season.
Mitchell had 12 points (4-12 FG, 2-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in Tuesday's preseason win over the Raptors. While Mitchell was only 2-of-9 on two-point attempts, he was still a plus-18 in 25 minutes of action. The second-year guard is coming off of one of the better rookie campaigns in recent history and is expected to take another step forward in Year 2. If he can improve his efficiency -- particularly from beyond the arc (34% 3PT last season) -- Mitchell has the tools to be one of the top guard commodities in all of fantasy basketball.
Mitchell (foot) has been cleared to resume basketball activity, per his official Twitter account. Mitchell was forced out of Game 5 of the Conference Semifinals against the Rockets due to a foot injury, with X-rays coming back negative. In late May, he was seen sporting a walking boot, but has apparently made significant progress since then. He'll now look to improve on his unexpectedly successful rookie campaign, where he averaged 20.5 points, 3.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 33.4 minutes. Mitchell continued to play at a high level throughout the postseason, posting 24.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals across 37.5 minutes per contest.
Mitchell (foot) has been sporting a walking boot recently for precautionary reasons, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Mitchell has been in a walking boot since suffering a left foot injury in a Game 5 loss to the Rockets at the start of May. Despite the extended time in the boot, Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey confirmed Monday that it was merely a precautionary measure, so it doesn't appear to be anything that will extend into training camp or the 2018-19 campaign. The exact injury is reportedly to the webbing between Mitchell's 4th and 5th toes on his left foot and while it seems to be just a minor ailment, it's unclear exactly when he'll be back to full strength.
