OKLAHOMA CITY — Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell will be available for Wednesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and he will start, according to a tweet by the Utah Jazz.

Earlier in the day, Mitchell said he would make a final decision right before Wednesday’s game.

“It’s pretty much a game time decision right now, but it’s looking good right now, I think,” Mitchell said in an interview Wednesday morning.

Mitchell suffered a bruised left foot Sunday in a 108-116 loss to the Thunder. He said his decision about playing in Game 2 Wednesday evening will depend on the amount of pain he’s feeling.

“I couldn’t give you like a number, but it’s not too bad. I’m fine,” Mitchell said when asked about his pain level Wednesday morning.
