Mutu faces an uncertain future at Chelsea after testing positive for an illegal substance back in September.
Mourinho did not want to talk about Mutu's possible participation against CSKA Moscow preferring to concentrate on the 2-0 victory.
"I don't have big decisions to make when the medical department give information to me every day about him saying he's not available," said Mourinho.
"The players don't deserve their manager speaking about other players - I won't speak about players who didn't participate in this game.
"My decision is who needs a rest and who deserves to come in for the weekend's game against Blackburn.
"I will see the players' reaction in training tomorrow - that is what I have to worry about."
Mourinho admitted his side had not been at their best against CSKA, but was happy at how they bounced back from their first defeat of the season at Manchester City last weekend.
"I think we played great matches against Porto and PSG but tonight wasn't a good game," added Mourinho.
"But we showed a good mental reaction after the defeat (1-0 at Manchester City on Saturday).
"I'm very happy. When you lose your life changes - but happiness is back."
