Dante Exum scored a career-high 22 points during a 112-104 loss to the Thunder on Saturday, adding one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.
The first unit came out extremely flat and George Hill did look a little slow, so coach Quin Snyder went back to Dante Watch. Exum was easily the best point guard on the roster today and maybe he can create some separation from the other point guards not named George Hill going forward. The Jazz do have a back-to-back set on Wednesday and Thursday, so maybe Exum can get some added run in one of those. He's still not a pickup with this fluky line. Mar 11 - 5:55 PM

Dante Exum will move back to the bench on Saturday.

He may not be in the rotation with George Hill back today. Exum has some work to do this offseason.
Mar 11 - 2:40 PM

Dante Exum started on Wednesday in place of George Hill (left big toe), but he lasted only nine minutes to finish with five points, one rebound and one assist.

Hill's toe cost him an extended stretch earlier this season and Utah needs him fully healthy for the postseason, so this might not be his last DNP. Shelvin Mack (ankle) was also out tonight, but Raul Neto (21 minutes) got more minutes than Exum, with guys like Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward also handling the ball.
Mar 9 - 12:21 AM

Dante Exum was quiet in a start at point guard on Monday vs. the Pelicans, scoring eight points with four rebounds, two assists, one triple and three turnovers in 25 minutes.

George Hill (toe soreness, rest) and Shelvin Mack (ankle) did not play, but with Hill expected back on Wednesday vs. the Rockets, Exum will surely head back to the bench. He shot 3-of-11 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line, but he obviously has very little value in re-draft formats. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 7 - 12:59 AM

Dante Exum is starting at point guard on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

George Hill (toe soreness, rest) and Shelvin Mack (ankle) will not play, so Exum is looking at a heavy workload. His upside is very low because he's more of a defender, so most fantasy owners should be able to do better. In 17 starts this season, Exum averaged 7.4 points, 1.8 assists and 2.2 rebounds.
Mar 6 - 7:27 PM

Coach Quin Snyder said Dante Exum's progress is more important than how well he plays on a game-to-game basis.

Snyder said he's liked Exum's consistency and how he's played better defense. It's worth a mention Snyder doesn't exactly like to answer Exum questions. " I’ve just had this question so many times and it’s like a Danté Watch, where every game we ask about how Danté’s played," Snyder said. "I’ll answer it every time but the answer is pretty much going to be the same: let’s not look at Dante’s singular game." Exum should be in the rotation, but he likely won't play enough to be worth using in fantasy.
Mar 3 - 2:54 PM

Dante Exum scored a season-high 15 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday.

He only scored five points in the final 18 minutes of this game, so it wasn't a complete garbage-time special. Exum has not been very good this season and would likely be losing minutes if Rodney Hood (knee) is ready to go this weekend.
Mar 2 - 12:17 AM

Dante Exum started for George Hill (toe, rest) against the Mavs on Thursday, scoring five points with four turnovers and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

His coach talked him up a bit before his start, but the actions didn't follow. Even though he suffered an ACL tear two summers ago, the progression just isn't there for Exum yet.
Feb 9 - 11:35 PM

Dante Exum will get the start for George Hill (toe, rest) against the Mavs on Thursday.

He's been back in the rotation as the backup point guard and has impressed his coach. Quin Snyder said he's liked how Exum has prepared lately, so that may be what won him over. Still, he's a very risky player to use tonight and this is likely just a spot start.
Feb 9 - 8:01 PM

Dante Exum matched his season-high 11 points during an easy 127-94 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

The Jazz just rolled today to get this one to garbage time. Exum has the inside track for the backup point guard minutes and he's played well since being inserted back into the rotation. Still, he just doesn't possess the upside in fantasy right now.
Feb 9 - 12:56 AM

Dante Exum scored seven points with two rebounds in 14 minutes against the Hawks on Monday.

He looks like he might be in the rotation to help out the second unit while starting shooting guard Rodney Hood (knee) is out. Exum is coming off an 11-point Saturday, but he's still nowhere near worthy of a grab in fantasy leagues right now.
Feb 6 - 10:18 PM

Dante Exum was a DNP-CD on Friday.

Even with Rodney Hood (knee) out, he still can't get run. Things are not going well for the No. 5 pick on the 2014 NBA Draft. Exum really needs to find out what he can hang his hat on as a scorer and hasn't grown much as a defender.
Jan 21 - 2:58 AM

Dante Exum scored two points in seven minutes with one assist in Saturday’s win against the Magic.

Exum appears to have fallen behind in Utah’s backcourt rotation. Alec Burks is back in the picture and played well tonight, so Exum could continue to struggle for playing time in the foreseeable future. He should not be owned in any format.
Jan 15 - 12:35 AM

Dante Exum has been sent down for a D-League stint.

With George Hill finally healthy, Exum picked up a DNP-CD his last time out, so Utah send him down to the D-League to get him some playing time. Even when Hill was out and Exum was starting, he wasn't worth owning in fantasy hoops, and that's not going to change with him sporadically coming off the bench.
Jan 9 - 2:26 PM

Dante Exum (knee) was a DNP-CD vs. Memphis on Sunday.

Exum didn't play vs. the Wolves on Saturday, either, and it looks as though coach Quin Snyder simply prefers Shelvin Mack as his full-time backup PG. With the Jazz in the thick of the playoff hunt, it's very hard to envision the 21-year-old Exum surfacing with value this season.
