Donovan Mitchell is out for Utah’s meeting with Mavericks on Friday
Despite coming into the day with a questionable tag, Donovan Mitchell will remain in the NBA’s concussion protocol and miss Friday’s game with Dallas. Mitchell was put on the concussion list on Wednesday after taking a few big knocks in Tuesday night’s game against the Knicks, where he played his worst game of the season. At this point, it’s not known if the hits he took during the match affected his play or if he indeed had a concussion.
With the Jazz guard out of commission for this one, Joe Ingles and Jordan Clarkson are must starts. While Clarkson is available in only 25 percent of leagues, you should immediately snatch Ingles, who can be found in 65 percent of pools. Joltin Joe started in Mitchell’s place in Wednesday’s Game 1 win over the Mavs and put up 21 points, eight assists, and seven triples in 30 minutes. At FanDuel DFS, Ingles is a steal at $5200, while Clarkson is a little more costly with a $5800 price tag. Mike Conley, who is largely already owned, should have a boost in production as well.
