Donovan Mitchell Enters NBA's Concussion Protocol 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 27, 2021 6:00 pm

Donovan Mitchell has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol and will miss Wednesday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.


Mitchell played 34 minutes in Tuesday night’s win over the New York Knicks. It was not immediately clear when Mitchell sustained the injury.


Team officials said, "His first symptoms linking him to a possible concussion occurred this morning after the game against the New York Knicks last night."


Mitchell shot 3-for-15 from the floor in Tuesday's game.

Maybe when he took the hard hit to the head from Rivers while attempting a layup or when Robinson had his arms wrapped around Mitchell's head during a rebound attempt and brought the back of Mitchell's head down on his knee.

This is what happens when unprovoked a man of Shaq's size suddenly slaps you alongside the head.

Man, you got to hate seeing someone getting their bell rung. Good luck with that.
