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.
Jan 8 - 11:04 PM

Dante Exum (knee) is available to play on Thursday vs. the Raptors.

With Alec Burks slowly working his way back and George Hill (concussion) out on Thursday, Exum should be in the rotation against the Raptors. He's more of a defender and has very little upside in standard leagues, so all his return does is limit the ceiling of fill-in starter Shelvin Mack.
Jan 5 - 12:13 PM

Dante Exum (knee) is questionable to play vs. the Raptors on Thursday.

George Hill has already been ruled out due to a concussion, so if Exum can't suit up there will be plenty of minutes available for Shelvin Mack. Either way, Mack is the more appealing target for temporary PG value in Utah.
Jan 4 - 7:05 PM

Dante Exum (knee) will not play Tuesday in Boston.

Exum has missed six straight games due to knee trouble. George Hill (concussion) has also ben ruled out of Tuesday's contest, which means Shelvin Mack will start and play upward of 30 minutes once again.
Jan 3 - 2:17 PM

Dante Exum (left knee) will not play Monday vs. the Nets.

It'll be Exum's sixth straight game on the sidelines, and with George Hill (concussion) also out of commission, Shelvin Mack will be forced into heavy minutes with Raul Neto flirting with playing time in the lower teens. Exum is waiver wire fodder.
Jan 1 - 7:08 PM

Dante Exum (patellar tendinitis) will not play Saturday vs. the Suns.

This will be the fifth straight game Exum has missed. With starter George Hill back in action and Shelvin Mack playing well off the bench, Exum has very little fantasy appeal. He is waiver-wire material in re-draft standard leagues.

Dante Exum (patellar tendinitis) will not play on Thursday vs. the 76ers.

He will be re-evaluated on Dec. 31, so we won't see him back on the court until early January at the earliest. With George Hill (toe) on the verge of a return, Exum belongs on the wire in most fantasy leagues.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 12:57:00 PM

Dante Exum (patellar tendinitis) will be re-evaluated in one week.

He tore his ACL on his left knee earlier in his NBA career and he's dealt with left knee problems before this season, so it makes sense to shut him down. With George Hill (toe) out as well, Shelvin Mack becomes an enticing DFS play at a reasonable price, and should have decent value in season-long leagues with both point guards out of the lineup. In the last five games, Mack averaged 28.6 minutes, 11.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists.

Dante Exum will miss another game on Friday due to tendinitis in his left knee.

With George Hill (toe) also out for that one, we should get another heavy dose of Shelvin Mack against the Raptors. Mack started on Wednesday and had 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. He has been posting stats better than those off the bench on some nights and we're guessing he'll be a solid DFS option on Friday.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 08:31:00 PM

Dante Exum (knee tendinitis) will not play against the Kings on Wednesday night.

He's dealt with some left knee tendinitis this month and the Jazz could just be taking it easy on a back-to-back set. With Exum out, there should be plenty of minutes going to Shelvin Mack while Raul Neto would likely be in the rotation. Mack makes sense as a DFS punt or as a stream tonight in favorable matchup.

Dante Exum only attempted two shots in 26 minutes of action during Tuesday's blowout loss to the Warriors, ending his night with just six points, two 3-pointers, one rebound and three turnovers.

As a starter this season, Exum own meager averages of 7.7 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 turnovers per game on 38.3 percent shooting, so there's obviously no fantasy value here. Shelvin Mack was equally unimpressive during the blowout loss, contributing more turnovers (4) than assists (2) and scoring a measly six points on 3-of-7 shooting in 22 minutes.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 01:22:00 AM

Dante Exum made a vacant start at PG on Sunday, going scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting with three assists, two rebounds, three turnovers and four personal fouls.

Exum played just 14 minutes, compared to 29 minutes for backup PG Shelvin Mack (10 points, six boards, five assists). George Hill's absence with a toe injury could be measured "week-to-week," according to coach Quin Snyder, so Mack is worth a look in deeper leagues. Leave Exum on the wire.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 09:12:00 PM

Dante Exum (left knee tendinitis) finished Wednesday's 109-89 home win with eight points, three assists, one rebound, one 3-pointer and three personal fouls in 17 minutes.

Exum's absence from Tuesday's practice was "in keeping with the long-term rehab" after his ACL surgery, according to coach Quin Snyder. He's been a liability in most fantasy leagues despite the absence of George Hill (toe), and his rest-of-season outlook isn't great with the Jazz focused on making the playoffs.
