Willie Mitchell's agent, Mike Luit, suggested that his client has suffered a setback in his attempt to return from a knee injury.
"…In an effort to return as soon as possible, he over-committed to his rehab and the knee did not respond in kind," Luit said. "As is the case sometimes, this causes swelling and other irritation to the joint. The result is the rehab is pushed back and the athlete has to accept that he must allow the injured area to calm down and start back at a slower pace. Of course, given the circumstances of this season, this frustrates everyone; Willie more than anyone else." What makes this weird is that Mitchell recently underwent an MRI and Kings GM Dean Lombardi said it revealed "no structural damage and no setback." Kings coach Darryl Sutter also voiced his frustration over the situation and said that he can't explain Mitchell's absence because he's not "a doctor or a psychologist."
