Thunder forward Paul George is good to for Wednesday's Game 2.

* Tonight on NBA TV:  Jazz vs. Thunder (8 ET)

Utah guard Donovan Mitchell, the Jazz's leading scorer in their first-round playoff series against the Thunder will play tonight despite his sore foot. Paul George, however, is good to go, according to coach Billy Donovan.

Mitchell went through Jazz shootaround this afternoon in Oklahoma City, but remained questionable at the time for Game 2. Now he will start.

George scored 36 points in the opener and set a team playoff record with eight 3-pointers in Oklahoma City's 116-108 win, but he missed the last minute to get treatment for a bruised right hip. Thunder coach Billy Donovan said he'd wait until Wednesday to determine George's status. He said George was limited in practice and did not do contact work.

Mitchell suffered a left foot bruise in Game 1, and on Tuesday a Jazz spokesman said he is questionable. The rookie went through portions of yesterday's practice. He had 27 points and 10 rebounds in the opener after averaging 20.5 points in the regular season.
