The incessant buzz around the league is that there are those in Mitchell’s circle who believe he is too big of a star for Salt Lake City. Further, some say it’s only a matter of time before he joins former Creative Artists Agency agent and current New York Knicks president Leon Rose “They’re a first-round exit from Donovan being in New York,” an Eastern Conference scout said.

Donovan Mitchell has missed the Utah Jazz’s past five games with a concussion, but could return this weekend. Rudy Gobert’s strained left calf — suffered late in Sunday’s loss — is considered a relatively mild injury, but his timeline to return is murky.…12:11 AM

Donovan Mitchell could return to action this weekend for the Jazz PM

Jazz are hoping that Donovan Mitchell could return this weekend from his concussion. For Rudy Gobert (left calf strain) the Jazz are going to be extra cautious but the strain is very mild and there’s reason to believe that Gobert will be playing again before the All-Star break – 10:16 PM

More on this storyline

Eric Walden: Asked about the Brian Windhorst report about him wanting to play in a bigger market, Donovan Mitchell cuts off the question, notes that in his mind, all the questions he gets when the team is losing are negative, and says it’s simple: “We’re trying to win a championship.” -via Twitter @tribjazz / January 15, 2022

Ben Anderson: I asked Donovan Mitchell about the ESPN report saying he may want to play in a bigger market, he cut me off: “Y’all like to talk a lot when we lose. I don’t understand. Y’all like to just keep all the negative stuff when we start losing, when we’re winning there’s nothing said.” -via Twitter @BensHoops / January 15, 2022

Tim MacMahon: I think that it’s a little bit different situation in Salt Lake City with Donovan Mitchell just because there is I’m gonna say at least speculation around a league that market size might matter to him. -via YouTube / January 8, 2022
