Donovan Mitchell said he feels “fine” after leaving Game 1 in the fourth quarter to get an X-ray on his left foot before returning and playing through some apparent pain in the Jazz’s 116-108 loss.

“I just stubbed my toe,” Mitchell said. “Nothing major.”

Mitchell returned with 7:47 left in the fourth quarter but was subbed out about a minute later after making a jumper and grimacing as he ran back on defense. Mitchell was visibly confused on the bench and, with the help of some teammates, lobbied to re-enter the game.

“I was just limping, and they saw me limping and thought I needed to come out,” Mitchell said, “but I was just being a baby.”

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

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is listed as doubtful for Saturday’s Game 4 in the Sixers’ first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets, the NBA announced in its injury report Friday evening.

Embiid sat out Game 3, a dominant 131-115 win by Philadelphia to take a 2-1 series lead, with left knee soreness.

The status is a downgrade for Embiid, who was listed as questionable going into Games 1, 2 and 3, as he continues to deal with left knee tendinitis that caused him to miss 14 of the Sixers’ 24 games after the All-Star break.
