Trevor Booker took offense to Roy Hibbert coming to a teammate's aid and took a swing at the Lakers' center early on Wednesday morning.

Yes, it was rather open handed, but he connected with Hibbert's temple and it was a full-blown swing. It would be surprising if Booker isn't suspended for a game due to the move. Booker started with Derrick Favors nursing a groin injury, but Favors is expected back sooner than later, meaning Booker is a fantasy afterthought.
Oct 7 - 1:45 AM

Trevor Booker, who broke his nose during a pickup game on Thursday, said that he will be ready to start playing basketball again in a week.

Booker will be good to go when training camp tips off in late-September, although he'll struggle to find meaningful minutes playing behind Derrick Favors in Utah. The addition of Trey Lyles further complicates the matter, so there's really no reason to draft Booker in most leagues.
Sep 19 - 1:58 PM

Trevor Booker broke his nose in a pick-up game and needed surgery on Thursday.

He should be fine for training camp. Booker figures to be in the rotation, but he might eventually lose minutes to a guy like Tibor Pleiss. Booker won't be worth drafting in most leagues.
Sep 17 - 9:07 PM

The Jazz fully guaranteed Trevor Booker's contract for the 2015-16 season on Thursday.

Booker was the first big off the bench for Utah down the stretch last season, posting averages of 7.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.8 minutes per game. He could be looking at a similar role heading into next season, but he does have more competition for playing time with Trey Lyles in the fold. Booker is only worth monitoring in deeper leagues for now.
Jul 10 - 9:40 AM

The Jazz have a $4.8 million team option on Trevor Booker next season, and Booker is hopeful that he will return to Utah.

"Of course I want to be back," Booker said. "I got the sense that they want me back, so I feel it's mutual. But, you know, at the end of the day, it's still always a business, so we'll see." Booker emerged as the primary big off the bench once Enes Kanter bolted town, and he proved to be a quality backup behind Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors down the stretch. Booker finished the season with averages of 7.2 points, 5.0 boards and 1.1 assists in just under 20 minutes per game, so he won't be a viable option in standard fantasy leagues next season with the way the Jazz are currently constructed.
Apr 25 - 9:24 AM

Trevor Booker said he would like to return with the Jazz next season.

The Jazz have a team option on Booker for next season, so it'll be interesting to see if they pick that up. He does fit well in Utah's system, and he is a quality reserve to have, so there's a chance he remains in Utah. However, as long as Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert are healthy, Booker will have zero fantasy value in standard leagues.
Apr 16 - 6:26 PM

Trevor Booker had some knee issues on Wednesday and did not play.

He had a really good run heading into tonight, but it's important to remember Booker is a little injury prone. Still, he's been a nice little addition this season for the Jazz.
Apr 15 - 11:53 PM

Trevor Booker double-doubled with Derrick Favors (back) out in Monday's win over the Mavs, scoring 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including a three) with 12 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 30 minutes.

Booker is basically going to be maxed out by the Jazz and it sounds like they're leaning toward keeping Favors out on Wednesday, though nothing is certain at this point. He should be in most lineups after the two-game run he has had.
Apr 14 - 4:23 AM

Trevor Booker started in place of Derrick Favors (rest) and scored a career-high 36 points with nine rebounds in a 111-105 win over the Blazers on Saturday.

Booker shot an impressive 12-of-15 from the field and added one assist, two steals and one block in 36 minutes. Booker was held scoreless in 15 minutes on Friday vs. the Grizzlies, so he would need Favors to rest again before we could get behind an add in standard leagues. Looking ahead, the Jazz play at home vs. the Mavericks on Monday, and finish the season on the road in Houston on Wednesday. Favors will likely play Monday, but it's possible that the Jazz hold him out on Wednesday, meaning owners in daily leagues should keep an eye on the injury report.
Apr 12 - 12:43 AM

Trevor Booker took a hit with the return of Derrick Favors on Wednesday, but still played 29 minutes and hit 3-of-9 shots for nine points, four rebounds, a steal and a block.

Booker was decent tonight, but if Favors is playing, we want no part of Booker in fantasy lineups.
Apr 2 - 1:41 AM

Trevor Booker will shift back to the Jazz bench on Wednesday with Derrick Favors (back) returning to action.

Booker posted 17 points and 13 rebounds on Monday but his role will be drastically reduced with Favors back in the lineup. He's only worth considering in deep leagues.
Apr 1 - 7:16 PM

Trevor Booker went for 17 and 13 with Derrick Favors (back) out in Monday's win over the Wolves, hitting 7-of-11 shots (including a three) with two blocks in 33 minutes.

Booker has a chance of putting up startable numbers any night that Favors is out, so if you need a short-term plug-in give him a look. The fact that the Jazz aren't going to rush back Favors also helps here.
Mar 31 - 2:00 AM

Trevor Booker started in place of Derrick Favors (back) on Saturday vs. the Thunder and scored 12 points with three boards, one steal and one 3-poiner in 33 minutes.

This wasn't a great line by any means, but the Thunder have some serious size in the paint and this wasn't a great matchup for Booker. It isn't clear if Favors will need to miss any more games, but Booker will be worth a look in most leagues if the Jazz keep Favors on the shelf. On a side note, Booker had one of the quotes of the night when he took a subtle shot at former teammate Enes Kanter. "He did what he always does," Booker said. "He got his stats. He didn't defend. He took an L [a loss)."
Mar 28 - 11:57 PM

Trevor Booker will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

He should get minutes in the 24-30 range tonight and will likely have a good chance at a double-double. Although, these are the two best teams for rebounding, so a double-double won't be easy to come by.
