Donovan Mitchell has been fantastic for the Utah Jazz throughout the season and that was the case again in his National Basketball Association playoff debut. Despite suffering a foot injury in Utah's loss to OKC Sunday, his MRI would come back clean.

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.

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. Not only that, but he's the first player since LeBron James to post 25 points and 10 rebounds in a playoff debut.

Mitchell played well in his first playoff game, but the Jazz will be hopeful he feels fine after the contest.

Despite an ailing foot, Donovan Mitchell was able to top score for his team, dropping 27 points on 11-for-22 shooting from the floor in 35 minutes of action. Our job is to make sure we find him, make it easy for him. These are the National Basketball Association playoffs, after all. We'll find out Wednesday night.
