Donovan Mitchell was a surprise entrant into the starting five on Wednesday and responded by shooting just 3-of-11 to post 10 points, four assists and a block in 26 minutes.
Mitchell’s placement in the starting lineup came as a shock, considering Rodney Hood was announced as a starter before being pulled with a gastric issue. Mitchell should get solid minutes for Utah this season given their need at both guard spots, but he isn’t likely to return fantasy value. Dynasty and deep leaguers can feel free to invest as needed, however.
