Donovan Mitchell expected to miss Game 5 in Boston

While the Cavaliers have their backs against the wall, trailing 3-1 against the Celtics, they should play the most important game of their season without Donovan Mitchell. This is what is announced Shams Charaniaa few hours before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semi-final.

This is unfortunately not a surprise since the guard had already missed Game 4 due to a calf injury. ” A tension “specified the former Jazz player. “The calf leads to the Achilles tendon and it can get worse. »

As his teammate Caris LeVert said, this package in the middle of the playoff series “just shows how serious the injury is, because if it was minor he probably would have tried to play with it.”

JB Bickerstaff's troops will therefore undoubtedly have to do without the 29.6 points average of the All-Star, the team's top scorer since the start of the playoffs. Donovan Mitchell even posted 36.8 units per game since his peak at 50 points in Game 6 against Orlando in the first round.

“It’s a close-knit group that has shown resilience throughout the year. We went through a ton with this group this season, and our group never gave up,” the coach recalled after the defeat in the fourth round.
