Donovan Mitchell missed Satuday night’s game with an illness, but is now considered probable to play on Monday night against the Pelicans.
It sounds safe to get the talented rookie back into all lineups. In addition to being probable for tonight, Mitchell will now replace Aaron Gordon in the Dunk Contest. Alec Burks and Rodney Hood will lose time with Mitchell back to full health. Mitchell has been one of the great stories of the NBA season and should get every opportunity to keep his top-50 value on the season.
Update: Donovan Mitchell and Rodney Hood are both available to play on Monday.
Both Donovan Mitchell and Rodney Hood will play for the Jazz tonight.
