March 17, 2019, 5:50 pmThabo Sefolosha - F - Utah Jazz
Thabo Sefoloasha (right hamstring soreness) will miss Monday's game with the Wizards.
Sefolosha isn't a lock to be in the rotation even when he's healthy, but this makes the decision easy for deep-league managers who are hunting for steals.

March 17, 2019, 12:46 amRudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert predictably dominated the Nets in Saturday's 114-98 win, hitting 9-of-12 shots en route to 23 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks.
Gobert was throwing up in the locker room after the game, but the illness couldn't keep him from toying with the small Nets' frontcourt. The only blemish on this line was a 5-for-10 mark at the charity stripe, but fantasy owners know the drill by now. Derrick Favors also had a strong night with 13 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in 22 minutes. Utah's frontcourt starters are putting up tandem top-50 runs to finish the season.
March 17, 2019, 12:44 amRicky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz
Ricky Rubio put up 12 points, six rebounds, six assists and a steal on Saturday night, but he also went 3-of-12 from the field and only logged 23 minutes.
The hope is that Rubio's still on a minutes limit after dealing with left hip tightness this week, because otherwise he's on very shaky ground. He still needs to be rostered in all formats but until his playing time inches back towards 30 mpg, expecting more than late-round numbers is unwise. Joe Ingles also had a mixed bag of an outing with two points, six boards, four assists and a steal.

Thabo Sefolosha (right hamstring soreness) will not play on Saturday.
Sefolosha gives the Jazz another defensive weapon, but his small role means he's well off the fantasy radar.

Thabo Sefolosha (right hamstring tightness) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Nets.
Sefolosha has been in and out of the lineup as he's dealt with an assortment of injuries and should be left on the wire.

March 15, 2019, 8:59 pmDante Exum - G - Utah Jazz
MRI results showed Dante Exum has a partially torn patellar tendon in his right knee and is out indefinitely.
Exum just can’t seem to shake the injury bug that has derailed a promising start to his professional basketball career. An official timetable hasn’t yet been set but we doubt Exum suits up again this season. His absence would mean more time for Royce O’Neale and Raul Neto though neither is worth an add as long as Ricky Rubio is playing.

March 14, 2019, 11:31 pmDonovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz to a 120-100 win over the Wolves on Thursday with 24 points on 8-of-17 shooting to go with three rebounds, six assists, a block and a 3-pointer.
Mitchell has been one of the best players since the ASB and he's catching fire at the perfect time for playoff bound owners. Since the ASB, Mitchell is averaging 29.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 3.3 3s on .456 shooting. He was hitting a bit of a wall earlier, but it looks like he's finally turned the corner.
March 14, 2019, 11:28 pmJae Crowder - F - Utah Jazz
Jae Crowder scored 18 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists, a steal and two triples on Thursday.
Crowder and Kyle Korver (11 points on 4-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, a steal and three 3-pointers) both provided huge sparks off the bench for the Jazz which proved to be the difference in this one. Both players are solid streaming options if you need triples.
March 14, 2019, 11:28 pmRudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert double-doubled on Thursday with 10 points and 13 boards to go with an assist and two blocks.
He went 5-for-7 from the floor and only logged 28 minutes because of his five fouls. Gobert had his hands full dealing with Karl-Anthony Towns tonight, but he more than held his ground. There isn't a matchup Gobert can't handle and the Jazz as a team are heating up thanks to his play on the defensive end.
March 14, 2019, 11:27 pmRicky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz
Ricky Rubio continued to struggle on Thursday, scoring eight points on 1-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
While the dimes are great, everything else isn't. He only logged 22 minutes and ot's the second consecutive game where Rubio hasn't produced up to par. If you're in the playoffs it might be time to move on and use his spot as a streaming slot. The good news is the Jazz play again on Saturday and four times next week, but over the past month, Rubio has been the No. 135 player in 9-cat leagues.
March 14, 2019, 11:25 pmJoe Ingles - F - Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, eight dimes, a steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers on Thursday.
He had his second dunk of the year in transition tonight, but unless you're in a niche league you probably don't care about that stat. Ingles is still handling the ball enough to keep up his high assist numbers and now that he hit a couple triples his line looks great. We always preach patience when Ingles is in a slump and games like tonight are why.
March 14, 2019, 11:24 pmDerrick Favors - F/C - Utah Jazz
Derrick Favors double-doubled on Thursday with 17 points and 11 boards to go with a steal and two blocks.
He went 8-for-12 from the field and it was his 13th double-double of the season. Favors has been playing rejuvenated basketball lately and the Jazz have taken notice. They're feeding him the ball as part of their halfcourt offense and he's making use of his size on both ends of the floor.
March 14, 2019, 9:56 pmDante Exum - G - Utah Jazz
Dante Exum is out for the rest of Thursday night's game with right knee soreness.
Exum just returned from an ankle sprain on Monday, but only made it one game before injuring himself again. He'll sit out the rest of the night with this knee issue and we'll have to check back on his status in the future.

March 14, 2019, 12:59 amDonovan Mitchell - G - Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell shot the ball well on Wednesday as he went 10-of-18 from the field on his way to 26 points in a win over the Suns.
He added five rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers to the box score. Mitchell has been a reliable middle-round value this season and is a slight boost in his efficiency away from being an early-round player. Joe Ingles chipped in 15 points, six assists and two steals on 6-of-9 shooting.
March 14, 2019, 12:54 amDerrick Favors - F/C - Utah Jazz
Derrick Favors put up a solid stat line on Wednesday with 18 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in 26 minutes in a win over the Suns.
He has been the best fantasy player to own for the Jazz over the past month as he is boasting top-20 value in 9-cat leagues in that span. Despite averaging just 25.8 minutes per game in his last 11 games, which is roughly the same as reserve guard Royce O’Neale, Favors has dominated for the Jazz and has helped them solidify their spot in the Western Conference playoff picture.
