Donovan Mitchell won't get too much playing time before the postseason, if any.
The Utah Jazz made the announcement Friday that their All-Star guard will be out at least another week as he rehabs his right ankle. Mitchell sustained the injury three weeks ago after an awkward fall against the Indiana Pacers.

He continues to make progress towards a return and will be re-evaluated in one week.
The Jazz (49-18) are in a back-and-forth battle with the Phoenix Suns for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. They won their fourth straight game on Friday, defeating the Denver Nuggets by a final score of 127-120.
With Mitchell being re-evaluated in one week, his sole options for a regular season return would be against Oklahoma City on May 14 and the Sacramento Kings on May 16.
The 2021 NBA playoffs begin May 22.
