The Utah Jazz dropped Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Sunday, falling 116-108 to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game dominated by superstar performances from OKC's two top guns.

"I was just limping, so the trainers saw me limping and they thought I needed to come out, but I was just being a baby, so I'm good", Donovan told reporters postgame.

Beyond what is reportedly a clean MRI, Mitchell himself said that the issue was "nothing major", as evidenced by the fact that he did return to action down the stretch despite the injury.

He originally felt soreness so he had an X-ray performed during the game that came back negative followed by the MRI. That same evening, he broke the league's record for 3-pointers made by a rookie, previously set by Damian Lillard.

Jazz coach Quin Snyder said all signs point to Mitchell being ready for Game 2 on Wednesday. "He's fine in the sense that he's not injured in any way but I think there's the question of hurting and we won't know that until a couple days", Snyder said. "I'm sure he'll undergo further imaging, and we'll update that tomorrow".
