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.
