Mitchell underwent an MRI on his left foot, which came back negative according to ESPN's Chris Haynes, meaning he will be available for Game 2.

However, there was a scary moment during the game when Mitchell came up hobbling after his foot was stepped on by Thunder forward Corey Brewer. After about a minute he was subbed off again as he was visibly in pain as he ran back on defense after burying a jumper. "Think I just stubbed my toe".

Playing in his first postseason game, Mitchell finished with 27 points on 11-of-22 shooting, plus 10 rebounds.

He is not expected to miss any time and is expected to be in the lineup when the Thunder and Jazz tip off Game 2 on Wednesday. Head coach Quin Snyder didn't seem overly concerned as he said: "Everything that we know right now, he's fine".

"Oh, yeah, I'm all good", George said. "So I'm excited to get this thing going".

It was his first playoff game with the Thunder since being acquired in a trade with the in in the offseason.
