Donovan Mitchell, Darius Garland injury status vs. Magic
Unfortunately for Cavs fans who were hoping to see a star-studded contest on Thursday, the bad news is that both Mitchell and Garland won’t be available against Orlando. This is after the Cavs officially ruled out their two stars due to respective injuries.
Mitchell is dealing with a left hand finger injury, while Garland won’t play because of a lower left leg contusion. Neither of the injuries sounds serious, which means that Cleveland is likely just giving their two stars a night off.
Mitchell and Garland aren’t the only players who will be sidelined against the Magic, though. Jarrett Allen, Evan Mobley, Isaac Okoro, Caris LeVert, and Dylan Windler have all been ruled out as well, leaving the Cavs with an extremely shorthanded lineup against Orlando.
Now, with regard to the question Are Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland playing tonight vs. the Magic, the answer is no.
