Mike Conley will not play against the Warriors on Friday due to tightness in his left hamstring.
Emmanuel Mudiay has seen an increased role since Conley got injured and should continue to see opportunity for as long as Conley remains out. Joe Ingles also sees a boost in assists when Conley is not on the floor.

Donovan Mitchell tamed the Wolves on Monday, recording 30 points on 13-of-20 shooting with five rebounds, six assists, two treys and one blocked shot.
This was hopefully, a turn-around game for Mitchell, who was struggling in 9-cat last week with top-90 value, dragged down mostly by his 4.0 turnovers over that span. He committed just two tonight.
December 11, 2019, 10:59 pmRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert hit his stride on Wednesday, checking all his usual boxes with 20 points (8-of-11 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs), 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 36 minutes.
Gobert has been a top-30 play over the last week and is steadily rising in the ranks with strong performances such as this. He should settle into a second-round value holding pattern soon enough as a rock-solid source of boards, FG percentages and blocks.
December 11, 2019, 10:55 pmJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles put up his best game of the season in Wednesday's 127-116 win over the Wolves, dropping a season-high 23 points (9-of-14 shooting), five rebounds, five assists, three 3s and one steal in another start for an injured Mike Conley (left hamsting tightness).
Ingles has found his groove among the Jazz starters, where he belongs. Now is a sell-high window for him as we've seen how poorly he plays off the bench, something he'll resume to doing once Conley is back and healthy.

Mike Conley (left hamstring strain) is being ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.
It is uncertain how much longer Conley will be out, but Joe Ingles will continue to reap the benefits in the meantime, while Emmanuel Mudiay and Dante Exum will see some extra time off the bench.

Donovan Mitchell scored 26 points on 10-of-25 shooting with six rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer in Monday's 90-104 loss to the Thunder.
Mitchell couldn't do much tonight and operates much better with Mike Conley (left hamstring tightness) on the floor. He's still posting top-30 numbers on the year and the 1-for-8 mark from deep really brought down his night. He's been an improved .376 mark from deep on the year though so we'll just write this night off as an anomaly.
December 9, 2019, 11:27 pmRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert scored 19 points on 9-of-10 shooting while adding 17 rebounds to go with an assist on Monday.
That's the third consecutive game without blocks for Gobert, but we're not worried as he's still averaging 1.8 on the year. Blocks are a high variance stat and Gobert is no longer a blocks machine, but the lack of swats lately shouldn't be a concern as he'll get it back on track soon.
December 9, 2019, 11:25 pmJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles started on Monday, scoring nine points on 3-of-7 shooting while adding four rebounds, eight assists, three steals and three triples.
Nights like tonight are a reminder to the world that Ingles can still put up numbers when given the chance. Mike Conley is dealing with hamstring tightness which paved the way for Ingles to log 34 minutes, so enjoy this run while it lasts.
December 9, 2019, 11:24 pmBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
Bojan Bogdanovic scored 13 points on 4-of-17 shooting while adding five boards, one steal and three triples on Monday.
Bogdanovic did his usual business tonight and should continue to float around the top-75 as a reliable triples and points play.
December 9, 2019, 12:49 pmMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley (left hamstring strain) will miss a 3rd straight game Monday night against the Thunder.
Kudos to the Jazz for treating a lower-body soft tissue injury with the seriousness that it deserves. The odds of reinjury for hamstring strains are high, so while this may be frustrating if you have Conley on your team, this is how you'd prefer a team manage his injury and it bodes well for long-term availability this season. At this rate, Conley's slump may bleed into the new year, but he's a useful fantasy player once you get over the diminished early-season returns. Patience is warranted.

Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points with four rebounds, three assists and seven turnovers in a 126-112 blowout victory over the Grizzlies.
The turnovers were the one blemish on this game for Mitchell. He is sitting inside the top-30 and should stay within that range with potential to climb into the top-20.
December 8, 2019, 1:16 amBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
Bojan Bogdanovic dropped 19 points on Saturday while shooting 5-of-13 from the field, 2-of-6 from deep and 7-of-7 from the line.
Bogdanovic continues to roll, producing top-60 value with solid contributions in points, threes and free throw percentage.
December 8, 2019, 1:11 amRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert double-doubled with 19 points (8-of-9 from the field) and 11 boards on Saturday.
Gobert was almost perfect from the floor and added five assists, but he failed to record a block. Gobert is top-40 on the season and could get back to second-round value if his blocks increase slightly.
December 8, 2019, 1:05 amJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles double-doubled with 12 points, 10 assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Saturday.
Ingles saw extra ball handling opportunity with Mike Conley (left hamstring tightness) sitting out, and he had a great connection with Rudy Gobert (19 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes). Ingles is still outside the top-150 in 9-cat rankings but keep an eye on him in case he can get some momentum.
December 8, 2019, 12:59 amEmmanuel MudiayPG, Utah Jazz
Emmanuel Mudiay scored 11 points with seven assists and two threes in 22 minutes on Saturday.
Mudiay had extra opportunity with Mike Conley (left hamstring tightness) sidelined. Mudiay can be streamed for assists when Mike Conley or Donovan Mitchell are out, but he should be left on the waiver wire when the Jazz are at full strength.
