On Tuesday afternoon, the Utah Jazz updated Donovan Mitchell's injury status. Mitchell will not return for the Utah Jazz in the regular season. Below is a quote from Utah's official release:
"In advance of Utah’s final three games of the regular season, Donovan Mitchell was re-evaluated by the team's medical staff on Tuesday for a sprained ankle he sustained on April 16. He continues to make progress towards a return but will be out for Utah’s final three contests.
Mitchell will not travel with the Jazz for the team’s upcoming road trip and will remain in Salt Lake City to continue treatment. He will be re-evaluated prior to the start of the NBA Playoffs."
Mitchell suffered an ankle sprain against the Indiana Pacers on April 16th. He has been re-evaluated each week, but he has been unable to return to the floor.
The Jazz could potentially be resting Mitchell until the first round of the NBA Playoffs. The Jazz, who only have three regular season games remaining, wrap up their regular season on Sunday against the Sacramento Kings. Once they wrap up their regular season, they will have one week to rest in preparation for the playoffs.
