Mitchell has been cleared of coronavirus, as have the rest of the Jazz's players and personnel, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports.
The announcement comes 15 days after Mitchell initially tested positive March 12, one day after the postponement of Utah's game against the Thunder. This is a good step for Mitchell, the team and the league, but there are still plenty more hurdles to clear before the NBA resumes play.
Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus after being evaluated following the postponement of the Jazz's game Wednesday versus the Thunder, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The All-Star guard is the second known NBA player to test positive for the virus, joining teammate Rudy Gobert. Shortly after the news of Gobert's positive test broke Wednesday, the league elected to suspend operations indefinitely.
Mitchell's game between Utah and Oklahoma City on Wednesday has been postponed, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.
The NBA has yet to provide an official statement on the postponement, but it's likely connected to the ongoing concerns regarding coronavirus. Both teams were on the court just prior to opening tip before returning to their respective locker rooms. The Jazz are next scheduled to play versus the Pelicans on Friday.
Mitchell posted 11 points (4-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and three steals across 34 minutes during Monday's 101-92 loss to the Raptors.
Mitchell has struggled shooting the ball lately, especially from two-point range. Across the past six games, he's hitting 38.1 percent of his threes but only 39.2 percent of his overall looks. Monday's effort also marked the second time over this stretch that he's scored just 11 points -- the other time being against the Celtics. In Mitchell's career, the Jazz are 6-6 when he scores 11 or fewer points on 25 percent or worse shooting.
Mitchell only scored 11 points (3-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 99-94 win at Boston.
Mitchell ended February with four straight games posting 30 or more points, but he has gotten off to a slow start in March. The 17.7 points per game are a downgrade compared to what he's done all year long, but the most worrisome stat is the fact that he's made just 37.3 percent of his shots and 29.2 percent of his three-point shots in three March contests. He will aim to turn things around Saturday at Detroit.
Mitchell racked up 23 points (9-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, two steals and one rebound in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 112-104 win over the Knicks.
Mitchell struggled from beyond the arc but provided his best assist total since Jan. 30. He has cooled down a bit from a scoring perspective after dropping at least 30 points in four straight games to finish the month of February. Nevertheless, Mitchell is the engine that makes Utah's offense go, and he has never been shy about letting it fly offensively.
Mitchell scored 19 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding nine rebounds, four assists and a block in 34 minutes during Monday's 126-113 win over the Cavaliers.
Every Utah starter scored at least 12 points and shot at least 50 percent from the floor against a feisty but undermanned Cleveland roster, and Mitchell got his fair share of the spoils. The third-year guard has scored in double digits in 12 straight games, averaging an impressive 24.9 points, 5.3 boards, 3.9 assists and 2.9 threes over that stretch.
Mitchell contributed 30 points (9-21 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 8-10 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes during Friday's 129-119 win over the Wizards,
Mitchell has always been Utah's main scoring threat this season, but he seems to have taken things up to another level after the All-Star Break since he has scored at least 30 points in each of his last four outings. The third-year guard is having averaging career-high marks in points (24.8), rebounds (4.4), field-goal percentage (45.8), free-throw percentage (85.4) and three-point percentage (36.7) in 2019-20.
Mitchell accumulated 37 points (15-32 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five rebounds and five assists during Wednesday's 114-103 loss to the Celtics.
Mitchell's three-game streak of 30-point performances ties a career high. He's also scored just under a third of Utah's points across the past three games, racking up 106 of the team's 324. He's done it efficiently as well, hitting 50.7 percent of his looks from the field. That said, the Jazz are struggling to support Mitchell, as Utah has lost four straight games and has been outscored by 50 points to the likes of Boston, Phoenix, Houston and San Antonio.
Mitchell scored 38 points (11-19 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 10-12 FT), while tacking on four rebounds, four assists and a steal during Utah's 131-111 loss to the Suns on Monday. He also had four turnovers.
Despite the Jazz getting dismantled, Mitchell was excellent in his duel against Devin Booker. His six made threes matched a season best and fueled his second-highest scoring output of the campaign. The Jazz are on a four-game skid, but Mitchell is now 23-of-43 for 69 points in the last two contests. He remains locked in as a top-10 shooting guard across fantasy formats.
Mitchell provided a team-high 31 points (12-24 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go with seven rebounds and three assists across 36 minutes Saturday in the Jazz's 120-110 loss to the Rockets.
The scoring total was Mitchell's best since Jan. 29, ending a relative down period in which he averaged 18.5 points on 41.3 percent shooting from the field and 33.3 percent from three-point range. The All-Star guard has taken another small step forward with his production in his third season, as he's now averaging career-best marks in points (24.2 per game), assists (4.3), rebounds (4.3), field-goal percentage (45.7%) and free-throw percentage (86.1%).
Mitchell managed 26 points (9-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 116-101 win over the Heat.
Mitchell has gone for at least 23 points in three straight games, which have all been victories. His other counting stats resulted in 41.0 fantasy points -- his most since Jan. 27 against the Rockets (51.6) and his 20th time crossing the 40-fantasy-point threshold this season.
Mitchell totaled 23 points (8-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes during Monday's win over Dallas.
While Mitchell was individually efficient with his shooting, he struggled immensely with his ball control, turning the ball over a season-high nine times. While he still has his weaknesses, Mitchell's admirably filled his role as the Jazz's lead scorer this year and is totaling a career-best 24.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.4 threes in 34.4 minutes per game.
Mitchell scored 24 points (9-23 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), while adding six assists and five rebounds Sunday night during Utah's 114-113 thriller against the Rockets.
Mitchell fired 20 shots for the third time in four games --- and has hit under 40 percent of his shots in the same stretch. Nonetheless, owners are accustomed to the volume shooting and inefficiency that can come with it. Mitchell's 24.3 points per game on the season makes him a top-15 scorer and buoys his status as a top-10 shooting guard in fantasy realms.
Mitchell recorded 16 points (6-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Friday's 117-114 win over the Trail Blazers.
Despite respectable rebound and assist totals Friday, Mitchell is suffering through a cold spell with his jump shot. Over the past four games, he's converted just 35 percent from the floor, which included a dreadful 1-for-12 performance against Denver.
Mitchell compiled 18 points (8-24 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 98-95 loss to the Nuggets.
Mitchell struggled to find his rhythm Wednesday as the Jazz fell to a vastly undermanned Nuggets outfit. The poor shooting was accompanied by a lack of supporting numbers for Mitchell, while the Jazz have now lost five games in a row. He has been outside the top 100 over the past two weeks and there could be a bit of an opportunity to buy low at the moment. The Jazz will host the Trail Blazers on Friday in what should present Mitchell with a solid opportunity to bounce back.
Mitchell chipped in with 31 points (9-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 10-10 FT), four assists, one rebound and one steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 127-120 loss at San Antonio.
Mitchell has topped the 30-point plateau in three of his last seven outings, and he has solidified his value as an elite fantasy asset due to his contributions in other areas of the game such as assists and steals. The third-year guard is averaging 29.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.6 steals during this stretch.
Mitchell notched 36 points (14-25 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four assists, three rebounds and three steals in 36 minutes during Monday's 126-117 defeat against the Rockets.
Mitchell surpassed the 30-point mark for the third time this month, but he has been incredibly consistent during January, topping the 20-point mark in each of his last seven outings since missing the trip to Washington back in Jan. 12. The third-year guard is averaging 24.2 points while shooting 47.3 percent from the field and 39.4 percent from three during the first month of the year.
Mitchell dropped 25 points (9-25 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in 37 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 victory over the Mavericks.
While it may not have shown in this rather inefficient performance, Mitchell's fantasy value has been boosted this year due to his improved shooting from both the field and the line. His 45.9 percent shooting from the field and 85.8 percent from the line are respectable career highs. The 23-year old's production has helped the Jazz claim the number two spot in the Western Conference standings, and there's no reason to expect anything less from Mitchell down the stretch of the season.
Mitchell posted 23 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and a steal Wednesday night, as the Jazz beat the Warriors 129-96.
Mitchell hit the 4,500 point mark for his career, become just the sixth guard to do so in 200 games or less. The Jazz held a double-digit lead for the majority of the game or else Mitchell could have erupted. Nonetheless, it was an efficient showing in a season where Mitchell has seen overall improvement in most major shooting statistics.
