OKLAHOMA CITY — Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has a left foot contusion, and his status is uncertain for Game 2 of the Western Conference playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Mitchell left Oklahoma City's 116-108 win Game 1 on Sunday after stubbing his toe in the third quarter, and he played sporadically the rest of the way. A team spokesman said Mitchell had an MRI on Monday, and the team will provide a status update on Tuesday.

Mitchell is one of the league's top rookies. He averaged 20.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists during the regular season. He had 27 points and 10 rebounds in Game 1.
