Donovan Mitchell Returns to Cavaliers Starting Lineup After Knee Injury

Cleveland Cavaliers’ player Donovan Mitchell has recovered from a left knee bruise and will start tonight’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Mitchell is averaging a team-high 28 points per game this season.

His presence is a source of confidence for his team since he is one of their leaders and his abilities make it easier for his teammates to perform well. Cleveland coach J.B. Bickerstaff stated that Mitchell’s absence has contributed to their recent losses, and the team looks forward to having him back in the game.

The Cavaliers have lost four of the seven games Mitchell missed. They are now facing the Pelicans, who are on a four-game winning streak. Meanwhile, Evan Mobley, who plays center and power forward, has been out for four games due to a left ankle sprain.

He is now doing light exercises on the court and is gradually working his way back to the game. However, Bickerstaff has not given a timeline for his return.
