George Hill and Gordon Hayward were expected to play and are in the Jazz starting five for the season finale.
With the Clippers facing off against the husk of the Sacramento Kings, it’s highly unlikely that Utah pulls ahead of them for homecourt. We’ll see what that means for playing time, but Utah’s regulars can be deployed if you don’t mind the risk. This also bodes well for Rodney Hood and Derrick Favors playing, as they were in the same boat as Hill and Hayward. Boris Diaw, Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles round out the starting lineup tonight.
