Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood (ankle) will return to the lineup on Wednesday against the Bulls.
Hood has missed the last seven games and the Jazz have gone 4-3 during that time. The 25-year-old is their leading scorer with 17.7 ppg, but it remains to be seen if he will maintain that with rookie Donovan Mitchell claiming the starting spot and playing so well. Alec Burks take a hit here and his value could dry up soon with Joe Johnson (wrist) returning this week as well. Despite this hold onto Burks for now as his stellar play has earned him a spot in the rotation going forward and Hood is no sure bet to stay healthy.
