After missing two of the Utah Jazz's last three games due to injury, Donovan Mitchell seems primed to return to the lineup.
Mitchell is listed as probable for today's game against the Dallas Mavericks. The guard had missed Monday's (Tuesday, PHL time) 124-111 home loss to the Toronto Raptors because of a left ankle sprain and missed Friday's (Saturday, PHL time) 110-100 home loss to the Memphis Grizzlies because of tightness in his right hamstring.

Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports Mitchell took part in yesterday's practice:
After Tuesday’s practice, Mitchell could be seen participating in one-on-one drills with Grayson Allen, Ricky Rubio, Georges Niang, and Thabo Sefolosha. Mitchell looked relatively unencumbered by the injury, though he did vow to start taping his ankles after spraining his in the fourth quarter in Denver.
Mitchell's last played on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) in a 103-88 road loss to the Denver Nuggets. Overall, he is averaging 22.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game this season.
