(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (45) takes the ball down court, as Golden State Warriors guard Kelly Oubre Jr. (12) and Golden State Warriors center James Wiseman (33) defend, in NBA action between the Utah Jazz and the Golden State Warriors at Vivint Arena, on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2021.

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has been ruled out of Wednesday night’s game at Vivint Arena after entering the NBA’s concussion protocol.

Mitchell’s first symptoms potentially linking him to a concussion occurred Wednesday morning, in the hours following the Jazz’s 108-94 victory over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night, the team’s ninth victory in a row.

The Jazz said that Mitchell “will continue to be monitored as he progresses through the concussion protocol.”

Mitchell, who made last year’s All-Star Game, is averaging 23.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game, while shooting 43.1% from the field, 39.5% from 3-point range, and 83.1% from the free-throw line.

The Jazz enter the Wednesday’s game second in the Western Conference with a 13-4 record.
