Cleveland Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell missed Game 4 against the Boston Celtics due to a left calf strain.

Mitchell sustained the injury toward the end of Game 3, Cavs head coach J.B. Bickerstaff told reporters before Monday's game, according to ESPN's Tim Bontemps.

Bickerstaff added that he'll be day-to-day going forward, per Bontemps.

Caris LeVert started in Mitchell's place alongside Darius Garland.

Mitchell had an admirable effort in Cleveland's Game 3 defeat, posting 33 points, six boards, three assists, and two steals in 43 minutes of action.

The seventh-year guard is averaging 29.6 points on 47.6% shooting across 10 postseason appearances.

Cavs big man Jarrett Allen also missed his seventh consecutive game due to a rib injury.

Boston won Monday evening's clash 109-102 to take a 3-1 series lead.
