Joe Ingles scored a season-high 15 points in his start for Gordon Hayward (foot) on Thursday against the Suns, hitting 6-of-8 shots (including three triples) with four rebounds, two assists and a career-high six steals in 27 minutes.
Ingles is a Swiss army knife of sorts and he’ll be worth a look in any game that Hayward does not play, and at this point Hayward is day-to-day with a somewhat unsettling tone coming out of Quin Snyder. That said, he’s not week-to-week so owners shouldn’t get too crazy predicting a long absence, especially with the Jazz needing every win they can get. On that note, the Suns presented a good opportunity for rest, as well. Trey Lyles also enjoyed the extra minutes and blowout action, scoring 17 points with three treys and two steals in 19 minutes.
