Joe Ingles scored 12 points with a game-high eight assists to go with a steal and two triples in Monday's loss to the Kings.
He went 3-for-6 from the field and hit all four of his free throws. Ingles looks like he'll be the sixth man for the Jazz which dampens his value a bit, but the contributions across the board mean he's still a standard-league value. The assists from Jingles are overlooked and when you pair it with the triples and steals you have a high-floor player that can fit in fantasy roster.

Joe Ingles is likely to remain in the sixth-man role into the regular season and says he's excited about the challenge.
Ingles mentions that he's not bothered by the change. He should continue to get approximately the same amount of minutes and possibly more usage as he helps run both the first and second unit. Take this opportunity to buy low on him.

Royce O'Neale is starting at power forward on Friday, with Joe Ingles coming off the bench.
This has been a rumored starting lineup ever since the Jazz signed Bojan Bogdanovic, and O'Neale is a pretty malleable fit as a low-maintenance offensive player who can guard multiple positions. This should set off alarm bells for deep-league managers, as O'Neale averaged 0.8 threes, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks in 20.4 mpg last season. Standard-league managers should also view this as a move that will push down Ingles' ADP — that's great for profit margin, as he's still going to play enough to deliver late-middle round value. Both are far more exciting fantasy options than Jeff Green, who is the other candidate to start at PF.

Rudy Gobert will be rested as the Jazz face the Bucks on Wednesday.
Joe Ingles will also rest. Both Gobert and Ingles played in the FIBA World Cup, so there is no reason to overwork them.

Joe Ingles started for the Jazz on Saturday and recorded 10 points (4-of-9 shooting), three rebounds, six assists and one steal in 22 minutes.
Ingles could be headed for a sixth-man role for the Jazz this season. However, thanks to his well-rounded stat line, we expect him to still up mid-round value. He's the type of player you can comfortably fall on your lap towards the end of the middle rounds in standard-league drafts.

Joe Ingles was effective in Team Australia's loss against France, putting up 17 points (7-of-11 from the floor), five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
Ingles was an all-around statistical force throughout the tournament, and was the focal point of Australia's surprising 4th place finish. He is begging everyone to not overlook him in fantasy drafts this season as he continues to be taken near or outside of the top-100. His stat-set will make him a player worth owning even without a starting role for the Jazz.

Patty Mills was the star for Australia, scoring 34 points and hitting four triples against Spain, but Australia fell in double overtime 95-88.
Mills did as much as he could but he just didn't get enough help from his supporting cast. Joe Ingles couldn't find the basket and only had four points (to go along with 10 rebounds and seven assists). With that off night of shooting from Ingles, the Aussies needed someone like Matthew Dellavedova (six points) or Aron Baynes (six points) to step up.

Patty Mills kept on rolling in Monday's 100-98 win over France, scoring 30 points on 10-of-18 from the field with three assists and three 3-pointers.
This was one of the best games of the tournament so far with two of the top contenders going toe-to-toe for seeding. The Boomers prevailed and will now face Czech Republic in their next game, with France drawing the USA. Mills is adding to an outstanding FIBA resume with each game but is going to be squeezed for minutes in San Antonio this season. Joe Ingles jingled his way to 23 points, three 3-pointers and a steal.

Patty Mills scored 19 points with nine assists, two steals and two triples as Australia remained undefeated in an 82-76 win over Dominican Republic.
Mills continues to deliver along with Joe Ingles and Andrew Bogut. Ingles only scored two points while providing elsewhere with seven rebounds, three assists and three steals while Bogut had eight points, eight rebounds and six assists in only 17 minutes. Matthew Dellavedova scored six with seven assists in 27 minutes and Aron Baynes 10 points, five rebounds and two assists in 16. Australia will have a tough matchup against France on Monday.

Joe Ingles had another all-around game on Tuesday scoring 17 points and adding 10 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks, as Australia beat Senegal 81-68.
Ingles shot 6-of-8 from the field and played 31 minutes as Senegal proved to be way more competitive than expected. There is talk about Smokin’ Joe coming off the bench this season for the Jazz but his production across the stat sheet is what makes him valuable in standard leagues.

Joe Ingles did a little bit of everything in Australia's 108-92 win over Team Canada, posting 13 points, nine assists, five rebounds, three steals and a block in 33 minutes of action.
Ingles' all-around game was on full display in a leading role with this team, and it should be fun to continue tracking what he and the Aussie's are capable of as the tournament progresses. Ingles is looking at the possibility that he comes off the bench in Utah this season in favor of Bojan Bogdanovic. With the ability to stuff the stat sheet, however, he should still hold fantasy value, and could wind up being a sneaky pick in drafts for those who are willing to bank on his ability to produce against weaker bench units.

Patty Mills went off in the fourth quarter and finished with 30 points as Australia beat USA 98-94.
Although it was only an exhibition, it was still a huge moment for Mills and the Australian team in front of a huge crowd as they handed the US team their first loss since 2006. Mills was serenaded with MVP chants as Joe Ingles also played well with 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds and seven assists while Andrew Bogut came off the bench for 16 points, nine rebounds and four assists in 20 minutes, shooting 7-of-8 from the field.

Khem Birch led all scorers with 18 points as Canada lost to Australia in the second game of their mini-series exhibition.
Birch also chipped in four rebounds, two steals and a block in 23 minutes. He recently signed a two-year extension with the Magic but he currently sits as their third string center so he is off the fantasy map for now. For Australia, captain Joe Ingles put up eight points on 2-of-10 shooting with six assists and three steals in 31 minutes while Jonah Bolden chipped in 12 points, five rebounds, a steal and two triples in 18 minutes off the bench.

Patty Mills scored 20 points along with three rebounds, four assists and four treys in 24 minutes in Australia's 70-90 loss to Canada in Friday's World Cup exhibition game.
Mills lead Australia in scoring in their first World Cup exhibition game. With Dejounte Murray returning this coming season from injury and Derrick White's rise, Mills is only a deep-league player at best in 2019-20. Fellow countryman Joe Ingles scored 11 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal.

According to Tony Jones of the Athletic, Joe Ingles said he was open to coming off of the bench.
Bojan Bogdanovic is locked into a starting role and Royce O'Neale is looking like he has a chance to secure the other. Ingles would likely lose minutes and as many opportunities for assists if he is playing with the second unit pushing him down draft boards, but still worth drafting in the later rounds.
