Jazz' Donovan Mitchell Will Not Play vs. Wizards Because of Illness

The Utah Jazz announced star Donovan Mitchell will miss Sunday's game against the Washington Wizards due to an illness.

It will be the first missed game of the year for the guard, who is averaging 24.2 points and 4.4 assists per game this year.

Mitchell shook off a slow start to the season and finished 2018-19 by averaging 23.8 points and 4.2 assists while shooting 36.2 percent from three-point range.

Sensing an opportunity to take the next step toward title contention, Utah acquired Mike Conley from the Memphis Grizzlies and signed Bojan Bogdanovic to a four-year, $73.1 million deal.

Bogdanovic allows the Jazz to be a little more prepared for Mitchell's injury, while Emmanuel Mudiay should provide some valuable depth out of the backcourt.
