Donovan Mitchell: Toe Injury Suffered in Game 1 ‘Nothing major’

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.

Missouri sophomore Jontay Porter will miss the entire upcoming season after tearing his ACL and MCL on Sunday, the school announced.

Porter suffered the injuries during a closed scrimmage against Southern Illinois.

He is the younger brother of Michael Porter Jr., the former top recruit who missed the majority of his lone season at Missouri last year before being drafted in the first round of the NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets in June.

Jontay Porter, a 6-foot-11 power forward, averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks last season and was expected to see a jump in production in 2018-19. He was named preseason second-team all-SEC last week.
