Cavs’ Mitchell to miss game vs. Grizzlies with groin strain

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Cavaliers star guard Donovan Mitchell will miss Cleveland’s game at Memphis with a strained left groin. Mitchell is averaging 28.4 points per game in his first season for Cleveland. He got hurt Monday in the third quarter of a win over New Orleans. Mitchell was held out of practice Tuesday and the Cavaliers ruled him out Wednesday hours before tipoff against the streaking Grizzlies, who have won 10 straight. With Mitchell on the bench, the Cavs rallied to beat the Pelicans. It’s not yet known if Mitchell will miss multiple games. After facing the Grizzlies, Cleveland will host Golden State on Friday and Milwaukee the following day.
