WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Utah Jazz begin a three game road trip on Sunday against the Washington Wizards, but will have to try and get their 9th straight win without Donovan Mitchell.

The third year star was ruled out for the Sunday matinee due to an illness that he played through against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night, a game that the Jazz won. Emmanuel Mudiay will start for the first time in a Jazz uniform.

Mitchell and the Jazz defeated the Hornets 109-92 at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Friday, January 10.

The Jazz star struggled during his time on the floor shooting 2-9 from the field for 4 points. Mitchell shot 0-3 on three-pointers and failed to reach the free-throw line against Charlotte. Although he was sick and struggled to score, Mitchell contributed and helped his team in other ways.

Mitchell recorded 1 rebound, dished out 4 assists, and had 2 steals against the Hornets. He posted a +8 plus-minus rating during his time on the court helping the Jazz to their eighth consecutive victory.

The Wizards receive two key players that are back in the lineup in Bradley Beal and Thomas Bryant.

Tip-off between the Jazz and Wizards is at 1:30 p.m. on AT&T SportsNet.
