The Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking to make it three straight wins on Friday night when they host a surging Milwaukee Bucks side at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse. Unfortunately for the Cavs, they could be without their best player yet again with Donovan Mitchell in danger of sitting out another game with a lingering illness.
Donovan Mitchell Questionable Vs. Milwaukee Bucks
The Cavs have submitted their injury report for Friday’s bout, and it appears that Mitchell is headed for another game-time decision. The four-time All-Star has been listed as questionable to play, which isn’t a very optimistic designation for him.
Mitchell has missed Cleveland’s last four games due to the same issue, and at this point, it is clear that he’s dealing with a more serious illness than initially anticipated. This obviously isn’t your typical cough and cold.
Mitchell seems to be trending in the right direction, though, as he participated in his team’s morning shootaround against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. Nonetheless, he was still eventually ruled out for that game.
If Mitchell is unable to go, the Cavs will be extremely shorthanded with Darius Garland and Evan Mobley also out with respective injuries.
Giannis Also on Injury Report
Much like the Cavs, the Bucks are also dealing with an issue with their best player. Giannis Antetokounmpo is on the injury report as well with a calf problem, although the silver lining here is that he is probable to play.
This is the same injury that had Giannis questionable for Wednesday’s win against the Brooklyn Nets, but he was still able to go out there and dominate despite the knock. The same should be the case on Friday night against Cleveland.
