Dante Exum (left leg) was quiet in 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, scoring six points on 2-of-6 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with three assists and one rebound.
Exum left early on Tuesday due to soreness in his lower left leg, but the fact that Utah let him play in a back-to-back situation confirms it's nothing serious. He's given the Jazz a nice change-of-pace addition to the second unit but has yet to provide reliable value -- even as a DFS streamer, he's too risky to deploy with regularity. Apr 12 - 1:26 AM

Date:

Dante Exum (leg) will play vs. Portland on Wednesday.

He was called questionable earlier today for this game after an injury on Tuesday, but he should be ready to roll here.
Apr 11 - 9:03 PM

Dante Exum (leg soreness) is questionable against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He suffered the injury on Tuesday night and did not return. Exum being banged up should been interesting because the Jazz may have wanted to limit Ricky Rubio a tad because of his lingering hamstring injury. If Exum is out, Raul Neto would be next man up.
Apr 11 - 3:08 PM

Dante Exum left Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors with some soreness in his lower left leg and didn't return.

The Jazz had a comfortable lead all night, so hopefully this was just a precaution. Exum finished with six points, two assists, one rebound and one steal in 19 minutes. He's been sneaky good since his return from his shoulder injury and should be a big part of the second unit in the playoffs.
Apr 10 - 11:20 PM

Dante Exum scored 10 points with four rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

He's certainly healthy and Exum blocked a dunk attempt from Boban Marjanovic (video in link below). Exum could be looking at additional run because Ricky Rubio's hamstring issue isn't going away. He'll probably be coming off the bench either way, but Exum could find himself getting minutes in the upper 20s. If Rubio is indeed out, Exum could be worth a stream if you need a PG.
Apr 6 - 12:15 AM

Dante Exum posted 14 points on 4-of-6 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs on Sunday, with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 17 minutes of action.

Exum was coming off a 21-point gem vs. the Grizzlies and he continues to shine -- the only difference is that his minutes dropped off with Ricky Rubio (hamstring) back in the starting lineup. As long as Rubio and Donovan Mitchell are both active, it'll be hard for Exum to have more than deep-league appeal.
Apr 1 - 9:52 PM

Dante Exum scored a season-high 21 points in Friday's 107-97 win over the Grizzlies, hitting 8-of-10 shots and 2-of-2 free throws in 27 minutes.

We've seen some flashes from Exum since he returned from his shoulder injury, but this was his first extended look because Ricky Rubio sat out with hamstring soreness. Exum buried three triples with three rebounds, three assists and one steal, and his ability to attack off the dribble is going to give the second unit in Utah a huge lift. His dynasty stock is rising and he'll also be worth a look on Sunday vs. the Wolves if Rubio can't go.
Mar 31 - 1:09 AM

Dante Exum notched multiple season-highs on Sunday with 13 points, five assists and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes vs. the Warriors.

Exum earned extra run in a lopsided victory tonight, and Utah isn't about to unleash their oft-injured 22-year-old guard -- despite tonight's win, they remain just 1.5 games ahead of the No. 9 seed Nuggets. Jazz PG David Stockton even earned a cameo in garbage time tonight, which sums up the meaninglessness of the final quarter.
Mar 25 - 11:14 PM

Dante Exum made his season debut against the Suns on Thursday with 10 points, three rebounds and two assists in 14 minutes.

He looked great today and was aggressive as a driver. Exum didn't have a hard minutes cap, but the Jazz watched him carefully and they mentioned the team playing well as something that could keep him down. Both Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio aren't going to lose minutes, so Exum isn't really worth adding.
Mar 16 - 1:18 AM

Dante Exum (shoulder) will be available to play Thursday vs. the Suns.

Exum will be brought along slowly, and even once he's fully up to speed, it'll tough for him to get meaningful minutes behind Ricky Rubio and Donovan Mitchell. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 14 - 6:54 PM

The Jazz recalled Dante Exum.

He went through a closed practice with the G League team as part of the last stage of his rehab. It was his second rehab practice this week and he'll be questionable to play on Thursday against the Suns. Leave Exum on the wire, but this is great to see he's getting close to a return.
Mar 14 - 4:33 PM

Dante Exum (shoulder) has been sent down for another G-League stint.

The Jazz aren't practicing today, so Exum will go down to the G-League to get in some extra work. He's on the cusp of a return, but he's also going to be the third-string point guard on the roster, so there's no reason to stash him.
Mar 14 - 12:24 PM

Dante Exum (shoulder) has been recalled from the G-League.

He got in a practice with the G-League squad today, and he's on track to make his regular-season debut sometime this week. He won't have a large enough role in the rotation to make a difference in fantasy hoops, though.
Mar 13 - 5:24 PM

The Jazz have assigned Dante Exum (shoulder) to their G-League affiliate.

Exum's has made major strides in his rehab program, and is nearing a return to game action for the Jazz. If he plays well and avoids a setback playing for the SLC Stars, Exum could be back in a Utah uniform shortly. However, he will only see limited minutes off the bench and can be left on waivers in nearly all fantasy formats.
Mar 13 - 12:25 PM

Dante Exum (shoulder) could reportedly return to the court at some point this week.

The Jazz just lost Raul Neto (wrist) for the next two weeks, so Exum could immediately fill the third-string point guard role upon his return. He won't have much value, though.
