Donovan Mitchell scored 21 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in Wednesday's 111-84 win over the Heat.
There's very little to take away from this game — Utah was up by 25 after one, 27 at the half and 39 after three quarters. Rudy Gobert had 10 & 11 with two steals and two blocks while Ricky Rubio went for 5-6-6 with a steal in this easy win.

Donovan Mitchell scored 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and a steal on Monday.
Mitchell wasn't able to score the ball as well as he did Sunday against the Spurs, mainly because the Thunder are one of the best defensive teams in basketball. The Don has yet to really string together some efficient scoring games, but he's still getting comfortable as the Jazz have gotten off to a bit of a slow start.

Donovan Mitchell was able to put up 27 points with five rebounds on 8-of-21 shooting in a loss to the Spurs on Sunday.
He added three defensive stats with two steals and one block to the stat sheet as well. He is having a very similar season to last season stats-wise and is just outside top-60 value as opposed to last year’s top-55 finish. It does not look like he has taken a step forward from last season and it is now clear what you should expect from Mitchell each year. He will be a bit disappointing for owners who spent an early-round pick on him.

Donovan Mitchell scored six points on 3-of-9 shooting to go with a rebound, two assists and a steal on Thursday.
Mitchell was the victim of a blowout win and wasn't needed for the Jazz to give the Rockets a whooping. The Don has been heating up as of late but took a backseat as Ricky Rubio (13 points, 5-of-13 shooting with a 3-pointer, three rebounds, six assists and a steal) got it going against the Rockets tonight.

Donovan Mitchell scored 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting with two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in the Jazz's 139-105 win over the Spurs on Tuesday.
There wasn't anything to glean from this box score. Derrick Favors posted 14 points, five boards, one steal and one block, Smokin' Joe went for 13 and seven with three steals and three treys, Rudy Gobert went for 18 and 10 with three blocks and Richard Rubio posted 12 points, five boards, seven assists, three steals and two treys in the win.

Donovan Mitchell stayed on track with 30 points, two 3s, six boards, six dimes and a steal in Friday’s win over the Hornets.
Mitchell has been playing well since returning from a rib contusion and hopefully he can keep it up as he’s had only top-50/65 8/9-cat value so far this season. Ricky Rubio added 13 points (two 3s), six assists and a steal and has been a top-100 play over the last two weeks.

Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz to victory on Wednesday with an All-Star caliber performance that saw him drop 29 points, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist and four steals.
Mitchell missed the last couple of games with a rib contusion and this performance is a good indicator that the injury is behind him. Mitchell still is not delivering close to his ADP, hanging around the top-75 range in 9-cat. More games like this should yank up his ranking in no time.

Donovan Mitchell (rib contusion) will play against the Nets on Wednesday.
Mitchell sat out on Sunday and Monday after getting hurt on Friday, but he'll be back for a tilt in Brooklyn. Utah's struggled to start the year and Mitchell has had serious efficiency issues, and perhaps his collection of minor ailments has played into that. Get him back in your lineups and those of you who were using Alec Burks and Royce O'Neale as short-term options can move on.

Donovan Mitchell (rib contusion) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pacers.
Mitchell missed Sunday's game and is unsurprisingly out again. Royce O'Neale started and played 15 minutes but Alec Burks played 21 minutes off the bench and got 12 shots up. Burks could have had a bit more but the Jazz were blowing the Kings out at the end. Burks remains the main beneficiary in Mitchell's absence.

Donovan Mitchell (rib contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Kings.
Mitchell left Friday's game with the injury and was able to do a little bit at Saturday's practice, but the Jazz will play it safe with their young superstar. With Spida on the sidelines, look for Alec Burks to take on some extra scoring burden tomorrow. Everyone on the Jazz gets a small bump with Mitchell's usage spread around, but Burks is probably the single big winner.

Donovan Mitchell left Friday's game against the Lakers due to a rib contusion in the first half and did not return.
Royce O'Neale started the second half and if anything happens to Mitchell it's going to leave a lot of usage for other players, and be a real bad thing for the offense in general since they have trouble generating shots. Low-end values like Jae Crowder get a little bit safer, albeit probably way more inefficient. Somebody like Alec Burks could get tapped because of his explosion.

Donovan Mitchell scored 35 points on 13-of-23 shooting with two rebounds and three assists in the Jazz's 119-110 loss to the Kings on Wednesday.
Mitchell did well to be efficient but the Jazz need playmaking, shooting and athleticism as Rudy Gobert (13 points, 15 rebounds, one steal, two blocks) has lost a tiny step, but Ricky Rubio (13 points, three rebounds, seven assists), Jae Crowder and Derrick Favors are also in decline and it's a bad mix. There aren't any easy answers but hopefully they can kick it into a higher gear so they don't become a disappointing story this season.

Donovan Mitchell logged his first single-digit scoring game of the 2018-19 season on Monday against the Pacers, scoring seven points with one board and one block in 32 minutes.
Donovan was coming off an impressive performance in Boston on Saturday and followed it up with his worst game of the season. Mitchell is currently outside of the top-60 on the season. Feel free to send some offers of top-50 players who have less upside than Spida.

Donovan Mitchell hit 10-of-21 from the field on Saturday night, wrapping up a win over the Celtics with 28 points, three rebounds, six assists, three steals, a block and five 3-pointers.
That's more like it from Mitchell, who jacked up 35 shots without a single assist in Utah's loss to Philly on Friday. He's been atrocious from the field this season but will climb back up towards early-round value as his shooting percentage gets hit with some positive regression.

Donovan Mitchell, after his 35-shot, 0-assist performance in the loss against the 76ers on Friday, said, "That's not who I am. That's not how I play. I know i'm still being aggressive, but I've go to be smart."
Mitchell was the first to put up at least 35 shots without any assists since Carmelo Anthony did it in 2014 and Antoine Walker before that in 1998. He is shooting more this season at 19.2 attempts per game but hitting only 40.8 percent of his shots, the lowest percentage of anyone taking over 17 shots per game this season. Even though the Jazz are sub-500 on the season and coming off of two bad losses in a row, teammates and coaches remained in full support of Mitchell. Joe Ingles mentioned that he said to him during a timeout that if he feels good about the shot, he needs to shoot it. "He's our guy. That's what he does. He's aggressive. He doesn't need to over think it. He doesn't need to think that it's his fault that we lost. It's the last thing he needs to do is be worrying about it." Rudy Gobert said, "He needs to learn how to make the right decision at the right time. It's not easy. The NBA is hard. It's a tough league. He's learning." The Jazz are in Boston to take on the Celtics on Saturday.
