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.
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.
