The Utah Jazz are hopeful Donovan Mitchell will return to the lineup this weekend, a source told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.

Utah plays the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday and Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

Mitchell has missed the last four games due to a concussion and won't play in Wednesday's showdown against the NBA-leading Phoenix Suns.

The Jazz have gone 1-3 during the All-Star guard's absence. Joe Ingles started in Mitchell's place but missed Utah's previous contest due to an ankle injury.

Mitchell is averaging 25.5 points, 5.2 assists, and four boards over 40 appearances this season. He ranks ninth in the Association with 1.6 steals per game.

Utah is scoring 8.5 fewer points per 100 possessions when Mitchell isn't on the floor.
