The school announced Tuesday that 6-foot-3 Mitchell had a non-contact knee injury at practice Tuesday. He is expected to undergo a procedure on the knee. There is no timetable for his return.
Mitchell is a transfer from Vanderbilt who sat out last season. He started 11 of 31 games for the Commodores in 2014-15, averaging four points, three assists and two rebounds a game.
Mitchell was among three high-profile transfers expected to play significant minutes this fall. Guard Marcquise Reed came in from Robert Morris and forward Elijah Thomas came to Clemson from Texas A&M. Thomas will be eligible in December.
