Mitchell exited the game during the second half with what was referred to as "left foot soreness", after he appeared to hurt something when he collided with Corey Brewer.
OKC is a gifted team that has several players that are capable of making life miserable for the Jazz, and they did just that in Game 1 of the series on Sunday night. But even after the game, Mitchell would downplay his foot injury. When asked about his limp at the time that caused him to come out of the game, the Louisville product said that he was "just being a baby", according to Sam Gannon of KOKH Fox 25.
Game 2 is scheduled 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday in Oklahoma City. However, it was clear that he was still a bit shaken up and head coach Quin Snyder made a decision to pull him from the game once again. "So I'm excited to get this thing going".
The Thunder dealt with their own injury concern.
"Oh, yeah, I'm all good", George said.
