The Jazz have decided to pick up the option on Ekpe Udoh's contract, meaning he'll be back with the team next season.
Udoh was a deep reserve for the Jazz last season but did draw some starts when Rudy Gobert was injured. The combined injury history of both Gobert and Derrick Favors leaves the door open a crack, but the presence of both pretty much relegates Udoh to spot starter. Owners in extremely deep leagues can keep Udoh in mind as a desperation blocks play, but otherwise his fantasy value is entirely dependent on the health of his teammates. If nothing else it's nice to see him make it back to the NBA after his early work led to a few seasons overseas.
