Willie Mitchell (knee) doesn't think he's ready to return to the Kings' lineup yet, although he might be alone in that belief.
"You know what, he's got doctor's clearance," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "He's got trainers' clearance. Coaches want him to clear himself. So do it." Mitchell wants to focus on getting his conditioning to where he wants it to be. He's also concerned about coming back too quickly and aggravating the injury. Regard him as doubtful for Thursday's game.
