Per the Deseret News:
He will no longer compete in the Skills Challenge, but will still participate in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, Feb. 16.
Mitchell said he’s been working with dunk coach Chuck Millan to perfect his routine.
“I got a couple ideas,” Mitchell said. “Ever since yesterday, I’ve been kind of Googling or YouTubing the old dunk contests to kind of figure out dunks that kind of got overlooked that are still pretty tough.”
