Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell will miss at least one more week after having his sprained right ankle re-evaluated by the Jazz’s medical staff Friday, the team announced.

Utah said Mitchell “continues to make progress towards a return” and would be re-evaluated in one week.

Mitchell suffered the injury April 16 against the Indiana Pacers when he jumped to try and deflect a long outlet pass and came down awkwardly with his foot underneath Indiana guard Edmond Sumner.

Utah, which has an NBA-best 48-18 record, has gone 6-4 in Mitchell’s absence heading into Friday’s game against the Denver Nuggets.
