Donovan Mitchell back in Jazz lineup Thursday for Mike Conley (knee)

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (leg) is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the San Antonio Spurs.

What It Means:

Mitchell was held out last game. He return to the starting lineup in place of Mike Conley, who is out with a knee injury. Emmanuel Mudiay (knee) and Rudy Gobert (back) have also been ruled out for Thursday's game. Jordan Clarkson will make another start and should see plenty of minutes. The Spurs will not make the playoffs this year, so Mitchell could be in a smash spot if they decide to empty out the bench. However, the Jazz are locked into their playoff spot and there hasn't been any indication on how head coach Quin Snyder will use his rotation.

numberFire's models expect Mitchell to play 36.2 minutes and score 39.3 FanDuel points on Thursday. He costs $7,800.
