The Cleveland Cavaliers have the biggest game of their young season on Tuesday night.
They will face off against the New York Knicks on Halloween, which will be the first time the two teams have squared off since the playoffs last season.
This will be a vital game for the Cavaliers, but they will be missing a few of their stars.
However, Donovan Mitchell was at shootaround on Tuesday morning, according to Chris Fedor.
That suggests that he might be able to play in the big game.

The Cavaliers have made peace with the fact that they will be without Jarrett Allen (ankle bruise) and Darius Garland (hamstring).
As for Mitchell, he is still listed as questionable for the match against New York, as he is suffering from his own hamstring injury.
Mitchell was noticeably absent from the Cavaliers’ roster on Saturday when they took on the Indiana Pacers.
The Cavaliers haven’t had a great start to the season and they really want to win this next one against the Knicks.
Ever since they were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs, the Cavaliers have been eager to get revenge against the Knicks.
During last year’s short playoff run, Mitchell produced 23.2 points, 5 rebounds, and 7.2 assists.
He would obviously be a big boost to the team as they look to humble their rivals.
Things haven’t been too smooth for the Knicks either, and they currently have a 1-2 record after losing to the Boston Celtics on opening night and the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.
The Cavaliers could win this game without Mitchell, but they definitely want him ready to go.
