Not starting Friday
Ingles had started each of the first five games in the series, but he'll take on a bench role with Mike Conley (hamstring) back in action Friday. The 33-year-old averaged 15.4 points, 4.4 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 30.4 minutes per game to begin the series, and he could continue to see considerable run off the bench in Game 6.

Starting Game 6
Mitchell was a game-time decision heading into Friday's matchup, but he'll be able to play through his ankle injury after he went through pregame warmups. The Jazz will be back at full strength in Game 6 with Mike Conley (hamstring) also starting.

Conley missed the first five games of the series, but he'll return to the court as the Jazz attempt to stave off elimination Friday. It's not yet clear whether he could have a minutes restriction following his absence, but Joe Ingles will likely retreat to the bench in Game 6.
