Blazers vs Jazz Wednesday: Lineups, Injury Reports & Broadcast Info

Donovan Mitchell, Utah Jazz, NBA
NBA Analysis Network

The Portland Trail Blazers (25-39) will take on Donovan Mitchell and the Utah Jazz (40-24) in part of the Wednesday NBA slate.

It’s become absurd the number of key players the Trail Blazers currently have sidelined. Portland has been without Damian Lillard and after moving CJ McCollum, Norman Powell, and Robert Covington at the NBA trade deadline, they are shorthanded beyond belief.

Anfernee Simons has typically carried the shorthanded roster as well as he can but even then there’s been plenty of blowouts when he’s been in the lineup. Well, he remains out, too.

The Jazz has a lot to play for coming off a loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their previous outing. Donovan Mitchell played poorly and will look to bounce back.
