Cavaliers guard Donovan Mitchell will miss Tuesday’s road game with the Hornets with what is being listed as “injury management” for his finger.
Mitchell has a sprain on his left hand, though the injury is not considered serious. He has been playing through it and scored 23 points in a win over the Hornets on Sunday. He scored 42 against the Heat in the game before that on Friday.
For the season, Mitchell is averaging a career-high 27.6 points, including 29.6 over the last 10 games. He is also shooting a career-high 48 percent from the field in his first season in Cleveland.
The Cavs (43-27) are just one win away from last season’s total with 12 to go.
Center Jarrett Allen will also miss his second consecutive game with an eye injury. Both Mitchell and Allen are considered day-to-day. The Cavs have no other injuries to report.
