An MRI on Donovan Mitchell's injured left foot came back negative late Sunday as the Jazz rookie has been cleared for Game 2 against the Thunder, reported.

Mitchell left Sunday's Game 1 in the fourth quarter to get an X-ray on the foot before returning and playing through apparent pain in the Jazz's 116-108 loss. Players sustain contusions all the time and the gross majority of them are able to play through them with no problem.

Mitchell said he hasn't tried to run on his the foot yet, as the Jazz will have a couple days to rest between games.

On Wednesday, the former Louisville standout was at it again before Utah's game against Portland.

After his loss to Thanasi Kokkinakis at the Miami Open , the Swiss player made a decision to skip the clay season again. The 31-year-old had retired in the quarter-final of the Australian Open earlier this year due to injury concerns.

The good news? Mitchell's backed it up with his play on the court, leading the Jazz in scoring with 20.5 points per game and ranking third in assists per game with 3.7.

After the game, he insisted he was fine, saying that he thought he had "just stubbed my toe" and that it was "nothing major," despite the fact that the trainers elected to take him out of the game.

Mitchell impressed in his first playoff game, recording 27 points on 11-of-22 shooting and 10 rebounds in 35 minutes of action.
