Jazz star Donovan Mitchell will miss at least one more week as he continues to recover from a sprained ankle, according to Tony Jones of The Athletic (Twitter link). Mitchell was re-evaluated by the team’s medical staff on Saturday.

Utah is tied with Phoenix for the NBA’s best record at 45-18, suffering a 21-point loss to the team on Friday night. In addition to missing Mitchell, the Jazz also played without Mike Conley (hamstring) in the game.

Mitchell, 24, is currently enjoying a career-best season. The fourth-year guard is averaging 26.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game, shooting 44% from the floor and 39% from deep.

Utah is 3-4 since Mitchell suffered the injury and has upcoming contests against Toronto on Saturday, plus San Antonio on Monday and Wednesday.
