Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell underwent an MRI that showed he has a left foot contusion, and the team announced that his status for Wednesday’s Game 2 against the Oklahoma City Thunder will be updated Tuesday.
Mitchell left Sunday’s Game 1 in the fourth quarter to get an X-ray on the foot before returning and playing through apparent pain in the Jazz’s 116-108 loss. “I just stubbed my toe,” Mitchell said after the game. “Nothing major.”

Report: Jontay Porter Out for Season with Torn ACL, MCL
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.
