The rookie guard exploded for 27 points and 10 rebounds against the Oklahoma City Thunder and, though the end result was a loss for his team, the defeat certainly did not come as a result of struggles from Mitchell.
Mitchell left the game briefly after Corey Brewer awkwardly stepped on his left foot, but the rookie was able to finish out Sunday's contest.
Mitchell returned with 7:47 left in the fourth quarter but was subbed out about a minute later after making a jumper and grimacing as he ran back on defense.
Addressing reporters afterwards, Mitchell downplayed concerns about the injury and said that it was just a stubbed toe.

"I was just limping, and they saw me limping and thought I needed to come out, "but I was just being a baby".
