Cavaliers guard Mitchell misses second straight game with a strained hamstring
Mitchell, a four-time All-Star in his second season with Cleveland, ranks eighth in the league in scoring at 29.2 points per game and is tied for fifth in steals at 2.0.
The 27-year-old has been bothered by his right hamstring since the first week of the regular season, sitting out three total games because of it.
Denver will also be short-handed as shooting guard Jamal Murray was inactive for the sixth consecutive game because of a right hamstring strain. Murray is traveling with the Nuggets on their five-game trip.
