Donovan Mitchell to train with Dwyane Wade this offseason.
Mitchell and Wade's Twitter exchange confirmed they will be working out together again this offseason and they were both in agreement that there is "work to do." "This is going to be huge for me, from a confidence standpoint," Mitchell said during his exit interview. His upward trajectory is expected to continue after averaging 23.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.4 triples, leading the Jazz to 50 wins in his second year in the league.

Donovan Mitchell had his worst shooting game of the series in Wednesday's closeout loss, scoring 12 points on 4-of-22 shooting to go with six rebounds and a steal.
Despite Mitchell's struggles, the Jazz were able to stay in the game right up until the very end. While this series was revealing in the areas that Mitchell needs to improve, as well as flaws in Utah's offense in general, it also reveled how special of a talent he really is. He had an up and down season this year but the future is undoubtedly bright.

On the way home from practice prior to Game 4, Donovan Mitchell stopped to help as he witnessed a two-car crash in downtown Salt Lake City.
Mitchell saw the accident and stopped driving to run over and assist a woman whose airbags went off and was falling out of the car. Mitchell called 911 and waited until the police and ambulances arrived. Maybe this good karma is what the Jazz needed for Mitchell to have his best game of the series and get their first win.

Donovan Mitchell carried the Jazz in their 107-91 win over the Rockets in Game 4 on Monday with 31 points on 11-of-26 shooting to go with seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Mitchell finally got some help from his teammates tonight as they helped carry the team's offensive burden throughout the first three periods. In the final quarter, Mitchell scored the Jazz's first 13 points and ended up with 19 fourth quarter points. He had a dazzling spin move, some deep triples and a freakishly athletic alley-oop dunk all in the span of 12 minutes and has kept the Jazz season alive for at least another game due to his heroic efforts. Although the team as a whole has struggled offensively, Mitchell showed his superstar potential tonight.

Donovan Mitchell tried to put the Jazz on his back in Saturday's 101-104 loss to the Rockets, ending the night with 34 points on 9-of-27 shooting to go with six rebounds, five assists, three steals, a block and four 3-pointers.
Mitchell scored 13 in the first quarter and began his night with a 5-of-7 mark from the field, but he cratered thereafter and hit four of his final 20 shots as Utah let a winnable game slip away. He also went just 12-of-17 from the line on a night where the Jazz were an ugly 25-of-38 from the charity stripe. Mitchell missed a glorious opportunity to tie the game up with 10 seconds left but his open three banged iron and the Jazz are now down 3-0. We'll see what happens in Game 4 — Mitchell certainly needed to take on more offensive responsibility after two quiet games to open the series, but him getting triple the shots of his closest teammate (Joe Ingles with nine) might not be the way to go.

Donovan Mitchell had another poor shooting night as he went 5-of-18 from the field on his way to 11 points in a Game 2 blowout loss to the Rockets on Wednesday.
Mitchell shot just 1-of-8 from 3-point territory and 0-of-2 from the stripe. He also had five fouls and four turnovers while playing a team-high 37 minutes. He did add six assists and two steals, but this was a disappointing performance from the second-year rising star. Eric Gordon has been outshining him, but Mitchell has a chance to rectify things as the Jazz head home for Game 3.

Donovan Mitchell scored 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting with five rebounds and five turnovers in a loss to the Rockets on Sunday.
Eric Gordon was locking him up for much of this game, and Mitchell is a key piece to the Jazz winning basketball games. Therefore, Mitchell must play better than he did in Game 1 if the Jazz want to win this series. Expect a bounce-back performance in Game 2.

Donovan Mitchell ends the 2018-19 season with top-40/55 8/9-cat value, seeing a bump in points, rebounds, assists per game.
The Don logged 77 games this season and saw his fair share of volatile ups and downs. While it was not smooth sailing for Mitchell, he did get to embrace more of a leadership role as the Jazz's go-to scorer. With a bit more maturity and a better grasp of the game under his belt, Mitchell should be able to develop into one of the league's elite scorers come 2019-20. It will be interesting to see how Mitchell can improve on his averages of 23.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.4 threes, 4.2 assists and .14 steals per game.

Donovan Mitchell (thoracic spasm) will not play in the season finale Wednesday against the Clippers.
As the Jazz look ahead to the playoffs, they will rest their star second-year guard so they can avoid a Steph Curry-like injury in the silly season. In his absence, look for Jae Crowder, Grayson Allen, Thabo Sefolosha and Georges Niang to pick up some additional minutes. Niang and Crowder seem like the safest picks but none seem that appealing in a meaningless game for the Jazz.

Mitchell was on fire tonight and quite frankly was simply unstoppable. The Nuggets defenders thrown at him ended up sending him to the line, where he went 13-of-16. He's finishing off the season with a bang, salvaging his slow start with some monster outings like tonight.

Donovan Mitchell led the charge in Friday's 128-124 win over the Wizards, scoring 34 points on 13-of-25 from the field with five rebounds, five assists, a block and three triples.
Mitchell was going back and forth with Bradley Beal in this one and the Jazz emerged victorious in a surprisingly close contest. He had disappointed fantasy owners with 21 points on 7-of-25 shooting in the week's previous two games combined, so hopefully this one was enough to make it up to you.

Donovan Mitchell logged 27 minutes on Monday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting while adding four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
Not exactly the way Mitchell owners wanted him to start the week off, but the Jazz just steamrolled through the Suns tonight which was why the usage was so low. Mitchell owners should root for competitive games as the Jazz are blowing out bad teams which is causing Mitchell's volume to decrease. They get the Lakers and Wizards up this week.

Donovan Mitchell scored 34 points on 15-of-32 shooting while adding four rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in Thursday's game against the Hawks.
Mitchell continues to roll, but the Jazz as a whole fell short tonight. The Jazz have the sixth best offense since the ASB and it's mostly due to Mitchell's ability to create and make shots. Since the ASB, Mitchell is averaging 28.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.7 blocks and 3.3 3s on .464 shooting.
