Trevor Booker scored six points with seven rebounds, one assist, four steals and one block in 26 minutes against the Magic on Friday.
Who said a Cook Book was obsolete? He bounced back nicely from a no-point dud on Thursday, but his defense on the low block has been an issue -- maybe it's due to the weight loss. Whatever the case, Rudy Gobert (ankle) was ruled out just 40 minutes before tonight, so expect him to play on Sunday. If you picked up Booker, you can probably make a proactive cut here.

Trevor Booker fouled out against the Heat on Thursday, failing to score with three rebounds, one steal, one block and one turnover in 16 minutes.

Yikes. He had a big chance tonight, but Booker has not played well all season. Perhaps his poor play is why he came off the bench. If Rudy Gobert (ankle) misses more time, Booker is still going to be hard to trust.

Trevor Booker will be back in the rotation on Friday against the 76ers.

He served his one-game suspension during the season opener against the Pistons, and head coach Quin Snyder said that he is eager to have him back. Booker should be the first big off the bench for the Jazz, but he is only worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of blocks.

Trevor Booker will serve his one-game suspension against the Pistons on Wednesday.

Booker will likely be the first big off the bench this season, but rookie Trey Lyles will have a chance to get some minutes tonight. Booker doesn't have much fantasy value.
Oct 28 - 12:00 PM

Trevor Booker will be suspended one game for taking a swing at Roy Hibbert.

The Jazz have some decent depth up front and they'll now be playing Tibor Pleiss a little bit more. Booker has looked great so far in the preseason, but doesn't have much fantasy value.
Oct 8 - 8:11 PM

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.
