Joe Ingles hit three triples in the Jazz's Game 5 loss vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday, finishing with 13 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Ingles played 33 minutes but put up just eight shots (5-for-8 FG) and went 3-for-6 from downtown. The Jazz simply didn't have enough offense outside of Donovan Mitchell to overtake Jamal Murray's offensive explosion. They need more from both Ingles and Rudy Gobert (11 points) in order to finish off the Nuggets on Thursday, when the teams will face each other in Game 6.

Joe Ingles' stat line suffered as a result of Mike Conley's return on Friday, with Smokin' Joe posting just two points to go with eight assists and a steal in 22 minutes.
The blowout nature of this game also hurt Ingles' production, and Utah never really needed him to do anything other than pass the ball to open cutters and shooters in this one. Ingles will be better than this going forward but we would expect him to post more middling numbers now that Conley is back in the fold. Also quiet but helpful in this one was Royce O'Neale, who had eight rebounds, four assists, a 3-pointer and a steal while taking just three shots in 28 minutes. He gets big credit for slowing Jamal Murray down in Utah's pair of victories so far.

Royce O’Neale and Joe Ingles both helped even the series with the Nuggets at a game apiece on Wednesday as they made plays for others on their way to eight and six assists respectively.
O’Neale only took four attempts from the field and they were all from beyond the arc. He made three of those shots on his way to nine points, eight assists, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 36 minutes. Ingles had a slightly less impressive line with 18 points (7-of-12), two rebounds, six assists, four treys and one turnover in 34 minutes. Both players will continue to be relied upon heavily moving forward. It will be interesting to see how the return of Mike Conley impacts the rotation, but odds are Ingles will be more negatively impacted from a fantasy perspective than O’Neale.

Joe Ingles scored more than 15 points for just the third time in his last 33 games, putting up 19 points including five triples to go with six assists, five rebounds and one steal in 43 minutes during Monday's Game 1 loss to the Nuggets.
Ingles assumed more of a leadership role with Mike Conley (personal) at home for the birth of his child. It was only the sixth time this season Ingles has connected on more than five 3-pointers. His efforts went unrewarded, however, as the Jazz fell behind during the overtime period. They will be without Conley once again on Wednesday as they look to level the series.

Donovan Mitchell played just 11 minutes as the Jazz went easy on their starters on Thursday against the Spurs, scoring 11 points and grabbing four boards.
Mitchell was actually quite active in his limited time, making three triples and dishing out three assists. It was clear the Jazz were resting their main assets, as Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley both sat out and Joe Ingles played just 12 minutes, scoring three points.

Joe Ingles ticked multiple boxes on Monday, quietly producing seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, seven assists, one trey, one steal and one block in just 13 minutes on the floor.
The Jazz took it easy on their starters tonight, so it's good thing that Smokin' Joe was still able to muster a well-rounded performance. This is a low-end line if you take into account his body of work over the NBA restart in Orlando, so expect better games when he's playing minutes in the high 20s.

Joe Ingles was the Jazz's main play-maker on Saturday, dishing out a game-high 13 assists to go with his 11 points (4-of-9 FGs), three rebounds, three triples and one steal.
Ingles has returned to his former fantasy glory since returning to the Jazz's starting lineup. He's a lock to bring top-75 value as long as he's given the minutes and usage that he's currently being allotted. Ingles is a reliable source of assists, threes and steals.

Joe Ingles made the most of his 17 minutes on Friday vs. the Spurs, going for 12 points, four 3-pointers, three assists and three rebounds.
Ingles scored everything from deep in this outing, which works just fine from a fantasy perspective. Presumably, Ingles is feeling healthy if he was able to get on the floor while Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley, Royce O'Neale and Donovan Mitchell all took a rest. That's two productive outings in a row for the unpredictable Ingles. Bojan Bogdanovic's absence should help secure his role, but Ingles' aggressiveness is always hard to rely upon.

Miye Oni will get his first career NBA start in his seventh contest on Friday alongside Ed Davis, Georges Niang, Joe Ingles and Emmanuel Mudiay.
The Jazz will look to their bench for some help today as the lone starter left for them is Joe Ingles. Jordan Clarkson and Tony Bradley should see quite a few minutes off the bench as well. Oni and Mudiay are probably the guys that the Jazz are most curious about against the surprisingly youthful Spurs.

The Jazz will be without Donovan Mitchell (left lower leg peroneal strain), Mike Conley (right knee soreness), Royce O'Neale (right calf soreness) and Rudy Gobert (rest) for the first half of a back-to-back on Friday vs. the Spurs, so Joe Ingles is the only starter who is available.
Ingles will be joined by four bench players for Friday's contest and it can be assumed that Tony Bradley, Jordan Clarkson and Georges Niang will all join the starting lineup with either Emmanuel Mudiay or Rayjon Tucker filling in the last spot. The Jazz will have their work cut out for them without four starters so San Antonio now looks like a good bet to win the game. This seems to be a rest day for all four of them as this game is the front-end of a back-to-back.

Joe Ingles had his best game in the bubble during Wednesday’s victory over the Grizzlies, scoring 25 points on 7-of-13 shooting with six trifectas.
Ingles saw 34 minutes of action and was the team’s best 3-point shooter on the night while also chipping in with four rebounds and five assists. One other positive sign for 9-cat formats is that Ingles only turned the ball over two times, compared with six in the last game. Ingles should continue to be rostered across formats with the role he currently has for the squad.

Joe Ingles had trouble vs. the Lakers on Monday, scoring five points on 2-of-5 shooting to go with two rebounsd, five assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer.
Ingles was quiet against the Lakers and just couldn't get going against their defense. The passing lanes were all closed as Ingles committed five turnovers tonight. He'll be better against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Joe Ingles spoiled what was otherwise an acceptable outing in Thursday's win with five turnovers to sour the 32 minutes of 13 points, three boards, two assists and two steals.
Ingles was another one of the underperforming Jazzercisers in the regular season. After two straight top-100 fantasy seasons, Ingles was sitting just inside the top-150 at the time of the season pause. He's going to need to be a big-time range shooter and facilitator to return value going forward.

Joe Ingles took Bojan Bogdanovic's place in the starting lineup for Thursday's scrimmage and turned in six points, five assists, a steal and a 3-of-9 shooting line in 21 minutes.
Ingles is going to need to step up after a rocky regular season. He doesn't offer the same scoring punch as Bogdanovic but the Jazz will need him to space the floor and fit in as a wing defender and secondary playmaker if they want to make a deep playoff run. While a move to the starting five sounds good, ultimately the friction that caused Ingles to fall to late-round value was caused by the presence of Mike Conley. We'll see if things smooth out over the rest of the Orlando games.
July 20, 2020, 10:51 pmRoyce O'NealeSF, Utah Jazz
Royce O'Neale locked up a 4-year, $36 million contract extension with the Jazz this year with averages of 6.3 points, 1.3 3s, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.4 blocks on .439 shooting in 64 games.
The numbers aren't spectacular, but he's a strong defender and can play small or big at the wing position. Versatility is king in today's NBA and O'Neale provides some steady play at the position and helped shore up the starting lineup when Joe Ingles was slumping. He finished the season with 179/165 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
