That span covers four games, including today’s game with the Lakers.
Mitchell was helped off the court after suffering the injury during the third quarter of Friday’s 119-111 win over the Indiana Pacers.
Mitchell took an awkward fall near the Pacers’ bench and immediately grabbed his lower leg. X-Rays taken at the arena were negative, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The two-time All-Star has been on a hot scoring streak as of late, averaging 40.5 points in the four games prior to Friday’s matchup.
He finished the afternoon tilt with 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting in 21 minutes.
Prayers up for @spidadmitchell 🙏
