Donovan Mitchell: least next 3 games after getting injection to treat knee

They score 4.8 points more when he’s on the court compared to when he sits, and while he’s never been known to be a strong defender.

Mitchell received a platelet-rich plasma injection to treat the bone bruise. He’s been ruled out for games this week against East-leading Boston.

Mitchell has missed the past two games with knee soreness. He will also be out Tuesday against the Boston Celtics. Mitchell has been ruled out for games Tuesday against the Boston Celtics.

The league’s fourth-leading scorer at 28 points per game, had already missed the previous two games due to the injury. This is just a brutal loss for the Cavs. Mitchell has been the most consistent piece their offense has had and now they’ll be without him for matchups against the Eastern and Western Conference’s top teams.

In the two games he’s already missed, Cleveland picked up a win against the Pistons, and fell to the Knicks, and with Mitchell sidelined for two games at the end of February it went 0-2 against the Magic and 76ers.

The Cavs aren’t close to being the same team without Mitchell, who played exceptionally well. His status will then be reevaluated over the weekend, according to the team.

Mitchell is fourth in the NBA this season with 28 points per game and third with 1.81 steals a game. The Cavs said he received a platelet-rich plasma injection into his knee Monday at the Cleveland Clinic.

What is even more disappointing is that Mitchell is putting together arguably the best season of his career. Let’s hope that this injury only keeps Mitchell sidelined for the three games that are included in the press release.
