Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell feels "fine" as he recovers from coronavirus after speaking out publicly for the first time from self-isolation.

Mitchell contracted COVID-19, along with Jazz team-mate Rudy Gobert, amid the global pandemic, which continues to disrupt sport.

"I can't wait to get back out there on the floor and play in front of the best fans in the world. I really miss playing in front of you guys. I'll see you all soon."
