Rudy Gobert hit 3-of-4 shots for six points, 10 rebounds, and three blocks in 35 minutes on Thursday night.

Despite a tough matchup, Gobert was able to hold his own under the glass, making it the 14th time this season he records double-digit rebounds. He has also blocked three or more shots in four straight games. His next game is against the Nuggets who he fared well against last season.

Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles scored 15 points in Thursday night’s loss to the Heat, adding four rebounds and four assists.

Ingles played 22 minutes off the bench, but ignited the offense with three 3-pointers and played the entire fourth quarter. It was the most minutes that he has played since Nov. 14 and only the third time this season he has played 22 or more minutes. Once the Jazz gets healthier, Ingles will see his role diminish.
Dec 2 - 12:38 AM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson started on Thursday and hit 6-of-9 shots for 18 points, three rebounds, and four assists.

Johnson played 32 minutes against his former team, draining four from beyond the arc. He now has seven 3-pointers in the last two games and has scored double-digit points in each of those games. The 18 points was the second most he has scored all season and the 32 minutes was the most he has played since November 2nd. He will have nights like these, but they do not come often. Rodney Hood (hamstring) is day-to-day, once he returns, Johnson will go back to the bench.
Dec 2 - 12:28 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 32 points with seven assists, three rebounds, and two steals in Thursday’s loss to the Heat.

Hayward hit a season-high in points and has now scored over 30 points in two consecutive games, while scoring more than 20 points in six straight games. He is shooting the ball well recently and maintains a healthy usage rate of 28.3 percent. He is also contributing in assists, rebounds, and 3-pointers. His next game is against the Nuggets who play at the fifth highest pace in the league.
Dec 2 - 12:14 AM

Dante Exum is starting at point guard for George Hill (toe) on Thursday.

He should get plenty of minutes tonight with Rodney Hood (hamstring) also out. Exum doesn't have much upside because of low per-minute output, so he's not really worth grabbing in most leagues.
Dec 1 - 8:42 PM
Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Updating a previous item, Joe Ingles will come off the bench on Thursday against the Heat.

He should still get solid minutes, especially with how frequently the Heat go small. Ingles isn't quite as appealing as Joe Johnson, but he's in the mix for owners in deep leagues.
Dec 1 - 8:37 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson will start against the Heat on Thursday.

Revenge game? it was previously reported Joe Ingles would get the start, but coach Quin Snyder wants to go with Iso Joe against his former team. Johnson should get minutes close to 30 tonight and could have short-term value. Rodney Hood (hamstring) is only day-to-day for now.
Dec 1 - 8:34 PM
Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles is likely to start for Rodney Hood (hamstring) against the Heat on Thursday.

It makes sense to keep the second unit together and bring Joe Johnson off the bench. Ingles actually exploded in his only start this year, scoring 20.0 points in 33 minutes. With the Jazz very thin on the outside, both Joe and Jingles should be getting big minutes.
Dec 1 - 7:11 PM
Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Rodney Hood (hamstring) is out for Thursday's game against the Heat.

He was listed as questionable due to his hamstring strain from Tuesday. This is Hood's first bout with a right hamstring strain in his career, but he's had some durability concerns before and the Jazz will take it easy on him. Joe Johnson should benefit most while there will be more two-PG lineups and some Joe Ingles.
Dec 1 - 7:03 PM

Dante Exum is likely to start against the Heat on Thursday.

George Hill (toe) is back on the shelf, so the Jazz will go back to making Exum a point guard and not a combo guard. In his previous six starts, Exum averaged 9.5 points, 3.5 boards, 1.7 assists and 0.8 treys in 29.8 minutes. The minutes will be there, but his upside isn't the greatest.
Dec 1 - 2:17 PM

George Hill (left big toe) is out for Thursday's game against Miami.

Hill is dealing with a sprain in his left big toe and will sit against the Heat on Thursday. Hill has put together a fantastic season thus far and it's currently unclear how long he'll be out. For at least Thursday night, Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack will see a boost in minutes and fantasy value, with Exum being the likely starter and priority pickup of the two.
Dec 1 - 1:01 PM

Derrick Favors (knee) won't play vs. the Heat on Thursday and he has yet to resume practicing.

The fact that Favors was ruled out a day in advance suggests that he's not close to a return, but Utah has offered no details about his timetable. Boris Diaw is starting at PF but Trey Lyles continues to be the primary beneficiary, and Rudy Gobert has also seen his numbers improve with Favors on the sidelines.
Nov 30 - 8:39 PM
Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Rodney Hood (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Heat on Thursday.

He suffered the injury on Tuesday night and did not return. Hood has been a slow healer in the past, so there's a decent chance the Jazz hold him out for the home game. If he's out, Joe Johnson figures to step up the most while Joe Ingles could get a few extra minutes.
Nov 30 - 8:39 PM
Joe Johnson - G/F - Jazz

Joe Johnson scored 11 points on Tuesday vs. the Rockets with three rebounds, three assists and three triples in 26 minutes.

Rodney Hood left the game with a hamstring strain and didn't return after 20 minutes, so Johnson is the next man up if Hood has to miss time. He's been quiet lately, but he did average 13.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 triples in six starts at the beginning of the season. Just put him on your radar until we get an update on Hood.
Nov 30 - 12:31 AM

Trey Lyles scored 13 points vs. the Rockets on Tuesday, shooting 5-of-8 from the field.

The second-year forward has now scored 13 points in three straight games, and he continues to benefit the most sans Derrick Favors (knee). Lyles added four rebounds, one assist and two treys in 24 minutes, and he's a lock for minutes in the 20s until Favors is able to return. However, he's not a standard-league pickup until we see a larger workload.
