Donovan Mitchell (ankle) heading toward GTD for Jazz Friday

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision for Game 6 against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

What It Means:

Mitchell's right ankle injury likely contributed to him shooting below 35.0 percent in each of the past two games. He scored a playoff-low 21 points in Wednesday's surprising Game 5 loss and said afterward that the injury is "just something I'm going to have to deal with." Mike Conley (hamstring) is "working toward a return to the lineup," per Woj, so Mitchell could have somewhat of a reduced workload. The Jazz trail the Clippers, 3-2, in the Western Conference Semifinal series.

numberFire's models expect Mitchell to score 44.3 FanDuel points over 37.5 minutes on Friday and he has a $9,400 on tonight's two-game slate. He averaged 49.3 FanDuel points in Games 1-4 before producing a postseason-low 35.5 FanDuel points in Game 5.
