Donovan Mitchell brushes off injury scare: 'I was just being a baby'

Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell has been diagnosed with a left foot contusion, after the MRI results came in this morning, according to the team.

Mitchell suffered a foot injury in the first half of Game 1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday when Corey Brewer stepped on his left foot.

"I just stubbed my toe", Mitchell said after the game.

Mitchell checked back into the game, playing 4 1/2 minutes in the fourth quarter as the Thunder salted away the win. Mitchell was visibly confused on the bench and, with the help of some teammates, lobbied to re-enter the game.

In his playoff debut, Mitchell would go for 27 points and 10 rebounds while adding three assists, two steals and a block over 35 minutes.

"I can walk. I'm good". Head coach Quin Snyder didn't seem overly concerned as he said: "Everything that we know right now, he's fine".

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. "I'm sure he'll undergo further imaging, and we'll update that tomorrow". "I ain't never sit out playoff games".
