Donovan Mitchell out for Tuesday’s game against the Charlotte Hornets

Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell is getting Tuesday night off.

Per the team’s injury report, Mitchell is sitting out the Cavs’ game against the Charlotte Hornets due to a left finger sprain that’s being designated as injury management on the report. Mitchell has been dealing with the injury since he suffered it on March 4 in a Cavs win over the Pistons.

The injury is still bothering him, so a night off makes sense. It’s an injury that usually means players miss some time to let it heal, but Mitchell has been playing through it as Cleveland is in the stretch run of the season and jockeying for playoff positioning.
