Alec Burks (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Clippers.

Dec 28 - 3:31 PM
Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Former NBA forward Brian Cook signed a contract to play in Lebanon with Riyadi.

It is doubtful that we will see him back in the NBA anytime soon and he is safely off of the fantasy radar in all leagues.

Trey Burke scored 17 points in a win over the 76ers on Saturday, adding four assists, one board, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He simply hasn't lived up to his potential so far this season and being undersized has been a bigger obstacle than everyone thought. Alec Burks is really struggling with his shoulder, so Burke will have to handle the ball even more for the Jazz for the foreseeable future.
Dec 28 - 12:54 AM

Rudy Gobert turned in an impressive performance on Saturday in just 17 minutes, finishing with four points on 2-of-3 shooting to go with six boards, two assists, two steals and three blocks.

It is just a matter of time before coach Quin Snyder is forced to give Gobert more minutes, as he has been too good to ignore this season. Gobert is already an asset in most leagues despite seeing less than 19 minutes per game, and his value is only going to climb as the season progresses.
Dec 28 - 12:48 AM

Patrick Christopher made his NBA debut on Saturday vs. the 76ers, but failed to connect on his only shot attempt and added just one steal in six minutes.

It is great to see him make his debut, but he looked hesitant during his time on the court and likely won't be in the rotation anytime soon. You can safely ignore Christopher in almost all formats.
Dec 28 - 12:42 AM

Rodney Hood scored just four points while starting in place of Alec Burks (shoulder) on Saturday, adding five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

He was 1-of-8 from the field and also aggravated his ankle in what was a long night for the rookie. He will continue to start as long as Burks is sidelined, but he is too unreliable for all but the deepest of leagues. Ignore Hood on the waiver wire.
Dec 28 - 12:37 AM

Derrick Favors posted a massive line on Saturday, finishing with 17 points, 15 boards, three assists, three steals and five blocks in 34 minutes.

He also shot 7-of-11 from the field, and was clearly the most dominant player on the court Saturday. The fact that he did this against the 76ers should be factored in, but this was a great performance nonetheless. As long as Favors stays healthy, more lines similar to this will be on the horizon.
Dec 28 - 12:33 AM

Rodney Hood (ankle) left Saturday's game against the 76ers, but has since returned and is available to play.

After landed awkwardly under the rim, Hood quickly emerged from the locker room after getting his ankle re-taped and it looks like he is good to go. We will pass along any further updates as needed.
Dec 27 - 9:48 PM

Rodney Hood will start in place of Alec Burks (shoulder) on Saturday against the 76ers.

The Jazz are also gaining some confidence in Dante Exum, so he may get more playing time. Hood is shooting the ball a little better from beyond the arc and he did play 21 minutes on Monday, so there's a chance he gets time in the high 20s tonight.
Dec 27 - 7:25 PM

Alec Burks (shoulder) will not play on Saturday vs. the 76ers.

This does not bode well for Burks' status moving forward, and it is already known that he may need surgery in the offseason. He is said to be dealing with some general soreness, so he should be fine with a little rest. Consider Burks day-to-day for now, and expect Rodney Hood to draw the start while Joe Ingles could also see an uptick in minutes.
Dec 27 - 7:10 PM

Alec Burks (shoulder) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

He missed the morning shootaround and his status is not looking good against the 76ers. Check back before tip-off for the official word, and expect Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles to get some extra playing time if Burks sits out. Stay tuned.
Dec 27 - 1:14 PM

Trevor Booker practiced on Friday and is expected to play against the 76ers on Saturday.

He had a minor procedure and missed Monday. While he was out, Rudy Gobert continued to shine, so Booker's minutes might be at risk as the team looks to figure out how to play their lanky Frenchman more.
Dec 26 - 4:13 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, four assists and one block in Monday's road win over the Grizzlies.

Hayward is a bit streaky and he's on a small heater right now. No longer the gaudy first round return he was early in the season, he's settled into a more realistic top 30-35 position for owners.
Dec 23 - 1:37 AM

Alec Burks scored 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) with three rebounds and four assists in Monday's win.

Burks is good for one of these explosions every so often but he's a borderline late-round value at best when it's all said and done.
Dec 23 - 1:35 AM

Rudy Gobert grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds on Monday, and also chipped in with two points and two blocks in 30 minutes.

Gobert is doing everything he can to force Quin Snyder's hand and though this result comes with Trevor Booker (day-to-day) out he has been a must-own player for a while, if not all year.
