Rudy Gobert (illness) will not suit up vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.
Tony Bradley will start in place of Gobert and is a worthy streaming option, especially if you need blocks. The Jazz play two more times this week and Gobert's next chance to play will be vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

Tony Jones of the Athletic is reporting that Rudy Gobert (illness) is still questionable heading into Wednesday's contest vs. the Thunder.
There are conflicting reports here so we'll have to wait until closer to tip-off for some clarity. Royce Young of ESPN previously reported that Gobert would sit out of Wednesday's game. If Gobert does sit out, Tony Bradley becomes an interesting streamer. However, Bradley has no value when Gobert plays.

Both Rudy Gobert and Emannuel Mudiay have been downgraded to out for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Thunder as they are both sick.
Tony Bradley will have streaming appeal with Gobert sidelined and he can be used in DFS tournaments as a low-cost option. In two games that Gobert missed in November, Bradley was able to produce third-round value. Mudiay doesn't have fantasy value at this time.

Emmanuel Mudiay is considered questionable for Wednesday's game due to illness.
Mudiay has played a total of 10 minutes over his last two appearances. He has averaged 7.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists this season, but Jazz fans are probably more concerned about the status of teammate Rudy Gobert.

Rudy Gobert (illness) missed shootaround and is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.
Gobert had a quiet game on Monday but is averaging 15.1 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks this season. Expect more minutes for Joe Ingles and Tony Bradley if the Jazz are forced to take Gobert out of the lineup.

Donovan Mitchell scored 11 points on 4-of-16 shooting to go with three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three triples in Monday's 92-101 loss to the Raptors.
Mitchell didn't have it on offense tonight, but he still delivered enough on the cash counters to save his night. He didn't get to the foul line at all and was completely bothered by the Raptors offense. He'll be much better in the next one.
March 9, 2020, 11:46 pmMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley started on Monday and scored 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting to go with six rebounds, seven dimes, a steal and three triples.
Conley has been much better lately and even though the shooting wasn't quite there tonight, it's good to see the dimes, triples and swipes come in. He's still a slightly risky play because of the Jazz's inconsistencies, but he's much safer than he was a few weeks ago. Keep him plugged in.
March 9, 2020, 11:45 pmJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles came off the bench on Monday and scored 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting with five rebounds, six assists, two steals and four triples.
Ingles outplayed every Jazz starter tonight and earned his 32 minutes on the floor. Mike Conley also had a decent game, but Bojan Bogdanovic (five points, one rebound, two assists and a triple in 24 minutes) was way off tonight which helped Ingles' case for more playing time. He's still an assist streamer at best with the way the Jazz are running their rotations.
March 9, 2020, 11:43 pmRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert was held in check on Monday, scoring six points on 1-of-4 shooting to go with four rebounds, two steals and a block.
Gobert has these performances from time to time and he battled foul trouble as well. He ended the game with five fouls and a minus-22 rating, but he's more than likely to bounce back with a double-double and some swats next game out.
March 9, 2020, 11:42 pmRoyce O'NealeSF, Utah Jazz
Royce O'Neale started on Monday and scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and two triples.
O'Neale had another strong start and it looks like he'll stick in the lineup and should maintain some value as a 3-and-D wing. He logged 33 minutes tonight which is enough to get it done in standard leagues.
March 9, 2020, 11:28 pmRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert was ejected with 40 seconds left in the game, finishing with six points, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 32 minutes.
It was a rough night for Gobert, but at least he added some defensive stats. Gobert is a top-35 player per game on the season and should bounce back shortly. Gobert will be an early-round player moving forward and has first-round upside if you are punting free throw percentage.

March 7, 2020, 10:08 pmBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
Bojan Bogdanovic had the hot hand on Saturday, shooting 12-of-18 from the floor and 3-of-6 from deep on his way to scoring 32 points with five rebounds in 34 minutes.
Bogdanovic rebounded in a big way after scoring eight points vs. the Celtics on Friday. Bogdanovic is a top-100 player on the season and should continue that pace as an efficient points and threes specialist with positive contribution in free throw percentage.
March 7, 2020, 10:02 pmDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell bounced back on Saturday, scoring 25 points on 8-of-14 shooting with five rebounds and two threes in a 111-105 win vs. the Pistons.
Mitchell also shot 7-of-8 from the line and redeemed himself after scoring 11 points on 20 percent shooting vs. the Celtics on Friday. Mitchell should post top-50 value down the stretch and the Jazz have a fantasy-friendly schedule in March.
March 7, 2020, 9:56 pmRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert brought the defensive stats on Saturday, swiping three steals and blocking two shots to go with 10 points and 12 rebounds in 35 minutes.
Gobert shot 6-of-10 from the line, but anyone starting him has to know to plan around his poor free throw shooting. He's a top-35 player per game in 9-cat leagues and his value jumps to top-10 when punting free throw percentage. He's locked and loaded as an early-round player the rest of the way and the Jazz have a friendly schedule during the fantasy playoffs.
March 7, 2020, 6:12 pmMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley is indeed available for Saturday's game with the Pistons, the second leg of a back-to-back.
The Jazz have been giving Conley half of their B2Bs off since he came back from his hamstring injuries, but it looks like he's officially clear of restrictions. Conley has been playing quite well over the last few weeks and is starting to look like the early-middle round asset that we were hoping to see all year. It's too little too late for most GMs out there, but it's better than nothing.
