Mitchell was on a roll before he missed one game with a sprained finger on his left hand. In his last six games, he scored over 40 points in three of them, helping Cleveland stay in the top four in the East.

UPDATE (Mar. 15):

Mitchell was hurt more than a week ago. Furthermore, his participation in Wednesday’s game is still questionable.

Mitchell performed superbly in Friday’s loss; the star guard scored 40 points for the third time in his last five games.

He’s averaging a robust 32.8 points per game in five March appearances, and that’s even more notable if we consider he only scored 18 points against the Heat on March 8.

UPDATE (Mar. 10):

The Cavaliers have won 11 of 15 games since the beginning of February, led by Darius Garland’s 25 points and Donovan Mitchell’s 18.

Mitchell suffered a sprained finger in the third quarter, but he is still expected to play on Monday.

After leaving Saturday’s game against the Pistons with an injury, Mitchell came back in and played for another 24 minutes, scoring 20 points (8-17 FG). The problem may have worsened after the game, prompting Cleveland to consider giving the dynamic shooting guard a night off to recover.

UPDATE (Mar. 04):

Donovan Mitchell (groin) isn’t listed on the Cavaliers’ injury report for Saturday’s game against the Pistons.
