The Utah Department of Health has cleared both Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, meaning they no longer pose a risk of infection to others.
Both Gobert and Mitchell tested positive for COVID-19, and although Gobert mentioned that he briefly lost his senses of taste and smell, the duo seems to be fully recovered. This is great news as we wait for word on when or if the NBA season will be able to continue.

Donovan Mitchell scored 11 points on 4-of-16 shooting to go with three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three triples in Monday's 92-101 loss to the Raptors.
Mitchell didn't have it on offense tonight, but he still delivered enough on the cash counters to save his night. He didn't get to the foul line at all and was completely bothered by the Raptors offense. He'll be much better in the next one.

Donovan Mitchell bounced back on Saturday, scoring 25 points on 8-of-14 shooting with five rebounds and two threes in a 111-105 win vs. the Pistons.
Mitchell also shot 7-of-8 from the line and redeemed himself after scoring 11 points on 20 percent shooting vs. the Celtics on Friday. Mitchell should post top-50 value down the stretch and the Jazz have a fantasy-friendly schedule in March.

Bojan Bogdanovic had a night to forget in Friday's 99-94 win over the Celtics, managing to produce just eight points on 2-of-9 shooting with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, one assist and five turnovers in 26 minutes.
Yikes. It was a weird day for the Jazz, with both Bogdanovic and Donovan Mitchell (11 points, 3-of-15 shooting, three triples, 33 minutes) having trouble finding the hoop. At the end of the day, the Jazz secured the much-needed W and we're not worried about their top-2 scoring options. Both of whom should bounce back fine.

Donovan Mitchell put together another strong outing for the Jazz on Wednesday, delivering 23 points (9-21 FG, 1-7 3PT), one rebound, eight assists and two steals.
Mitchell continues to be a focal point of this offense, and will receive plenty of opportunity to contribute. His shooting from deep was off tonight, but he'll bounce back. He should finish the season around a top-50 value.

Donovan Mitchell scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting to go with nine rebounds, four assists, a block and three 3-pointers in Monday's win over the Cavs.
Mitchell was slow to start this game, but ended up with a nice line and the highest plus-minus (+21) on the team. He's integral to the Jazz offense and they go as he does on that end of the floor.

Donovan Mitchell's efforts came up short in Wednesday's 114-103 loss to the Celtics, despite finishing with 37 points (15-32 FG, 2-10 3PT), five rebounds and five assists.
Mitchell had a herculean effort, but it fell short as the Jazz are struggling to find the right lineup to play around him. It is rare to see him shoot so poorly from deep, but he was able to get his points in other ways tonight. He seems to have settled in around fourth-round value for the season, with some flashes of upside as witnessed tonight.

Donovan Mitchell exploded for 38 points on 11-of-19 shooting from the field and 10-of-12 shooting from the line on Monday but the Jazz still fell to the Suns 111-131.
Mitchell hit six 3s and added four boards, four assists with one steal to the box tonight. Unfortunately, Mitchell's stellar outing could not translate to a W. Still, from a fantasy standpoint, Mitchell's arrow is dragged upward with this big game.
February 22, 2020, 11:45 pmDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell hit 12-of-24 shots from the field and 6-of-7 at the line for 31 points, seven rebounds, one 3-pointer and three assists in a loss to the Rockets on Saturday.
Mitchell has been a top-50 play on the season, but if he's going to carry the Jazz on his shoulders moving forward, his needle should be headed in the right direction as the season winds to a close.

Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz to a 116-101 win over the Heat on Wednesday with 26 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and four triples.
Mitchell had a bit of an empty line last game, but this was more in line of what we're used to from him. The 3-point shot was falling tonight, but it's good to see the dimes and swipes rolling in.
February 10, 2020, 11:18 pmDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell scored 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting to go with four rebounds, two dimes and three treys on Monday.
Mitchell didn't do much besides score tonight, but that's because the Jazz offense had things going elsewhere. He was still able to put points on the board, but the line was a bit empty. He'll fill up the stat sheet in the next one.

Donovan Mitchell had a successful performance vs. the Rockets with 24 points (9-of-23 FG), four 3-pointers, six assists and five rebounds during Sunday's 114-113 victory.
The shooting performances of late are leaving something to be desired from Mitchell, but he is still rounding out his lines with 3-pointers, assists and rebounds to sustain mid-round value. Mitchell is good but not great as a fantasy performer this season. Some expanded steals or attempts from the free-throw line would give the value boost he needs for an early-round ranking.
February 8, 2020, 1:42 amDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell took 16 shots to score 16 points in Friday's win over the Blazers, adding seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and a triple.
Mitchell couldn't get his shot going but was able to produce in other categories. It's good to see other areas of his game become more consistent but ideally he can get more free throw attempts for himself on nights where his shot isn't falling.
