Player News - Jazz

Date: Team: Pos:

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.
Dec 23 - 1:32 AM

Trevor Booker had a minor outpatient procedure in Charlotte, and he will not suit up for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Booker plays limited minutes off the bench in Utah, and is averaging just 7.0 points and 4.4 rebounds, so his absence will go largely unnoticed in standard leagues. Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter will likely pick up most of his minutes. He's not expected to be sidelined beyond Monday's game.
Dec 21 - 6:14 PM

Alec Burks briefly left Saturday's game with a shoulder injury, but returned moments later to finish with 11 points, four boards and one assist in 30 minutes.

He shot just 3-of-11 from the field, so his shoulder may have been bothering him a little bit. We will monitor Burks' status closely, but it doesn't look like he will be in danger of missing any time. We will pass along any updates as needed.
Dec 20 - 10:50 PM

Jon Ingles scored a career-high 13 points on Saturday, adding four boards, one assist, one block and three 3-pointers in 16 minutes.

He did quite a lot of damage in just 16 minutes, but we don't see him doing this again any time soon. Unless Gordon Hayward goes down with an injury, Ingles should be ignored in standard leagues.
Dec 20 - 10:44 PM

Derrick Favors played just 18 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, finishing with 13 points, five boards, two assists and one block.

There is no injury to worry about, and it was coach Quin Snyder's decision to keep him on the bench. The Jazz were blown out in this one, so this line should be taken with a grain of salt. Favors exploded for 23 points and 10 boards on Wednesday, so he should be able to bounce back in his next game. Keep him active in all lineups.
Dec 20 - 10:37 PM

Rudy Gobert grabbed his first career double-double in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, finishing with 11 points, 12 boards, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes.

This was a fantastic showing for Gobert, and this is the kind of line he can drop when he is given the minutes. This game reiterates the fact that Gobert should be owned in all leagues going forward, and he will only get better as his role grows towards the end of the season.
Dec 20 - 10:32 PM

Derrick Favors went for 23 and 10 in Friday's road win over the Magic, hitting 9-of-14 shots with three assists and two blocks.

Favors put up a pedestrian line in his return from an ankle injury on Wednesday and he looked great tonight. He has been a top 40-50 value when on the floor this season.
Dec 19 - 11:14 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points on 5-of-10 shooting (9-of-10 FTs) with three rebounds, six assists, one block and one three in Friday's win over the Magic.

Hayward was slumping for a bit last week but he has two solid games under his belt now. As we look more at cumulative stats now that we're almost a third of the way through the season, he has returned first to second round value in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively.
Dec 19 - 11:11 PM

Trey Burke scored 11 points on 5-of-15 shooting (no threes) with three rebounds, five assists and one steal on Friday.

Burke is a low-end player in 12-team formats and he will alternate between 'cut' lines and 'hold' lines all year long.
Dec 19 - 11:06 PM

Rudy Gobert blocked two shots with six points and three rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Obviously it's not comfortable to hold onto a low-minute guy but he has returned top 75-90 (9/8 cat) value in standard leagues this season in just 17.7 minutes per game. His value proposition to owners is pretty simple. He's serviceable or even good in a low-minute role and has potential to explode if given the minutes.
Dec 19 - 9:50 PM

Rudy Gobert played just 19 minutes, but played well with six points, seven rebounds, a steal and two blocks on 2-of-2 shooting on Wednesday.

Derrick Favors is back and Enes Kanter is on fire, meaning Gobert will go back to obscurity until one of the Jazz big men go down again. It was nice while it lasted.
Dec 18 - 12:44 AM

Trey Burke hit just 3-of-10 shots (all 3-pointers) for nine points, one rebound, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

Dante Exum came off the bench for 10 points, three assists and two 3-pointers on 4-of-5 shooting in 24 minutes, but the starting job is still clearly in the hands of Burke. He had 16 points, six boards, a block and two 3-pointers on Tuesday, and will probably bounce back in his next one.
