Royce O'Neale scored 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and three treys in the Jazz's 107-97 win over the Suns on Wednesday. O'Neale has been a top-150…

Rudy Gobert capped off his series with 12 points, nine rebounds, a steal and five blocks in Tuesday's Game 5 loss to the Rockets.
Clint Capela may have gotten the better of Gobert in this series but he remained paramount to Utah's success. They bleed points when he's not around to patrol the rim and he was the only Jazz player to finish as a positive (plus-two) tonight. Joe Ingles also scored 12 points while Royce O'Neale chipped in 17 to wrap up a fine postseason for the rookie.

Royce O'Neale scored 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds and one assist over 29 minutes in Friday's blowout loss to the Rockets in Game 3.
O'Neale's scoring number will catch the eye but he bogged down the offense all night and outside of truly maxing out the offensive players there's not much Quin Snyder can do. O'Neale needs to be on the floor a lot one way or another to help deal with James Harden.

Royce O'Neale hit two threes for six points and added eight boards and an assist in Wednesday's loss in Portland.
As an unheralded rookie, O'Neale predictably didn't get much run off the bench early on. As the season progressed, he draw a few starts as other players missed games to injury, and was a bit of a revelation. He hustles, is a bundle of energy and what coach Snyder loves most, he's very decisive with the ball. He almost always instantly passes or drives and doesn't hold the rock, gumming up the already ill-spaced Utah offense.He was only top-320 on the season in 69 games, but had stretches of top-120 value when starting.He needs to work on his handles and shooting (and have a few vets leave the team) but Royce looks like a baller who should find a place in the league.

Royce O'Neale scored 15 points with five rebounds, two assists and two triples in 24 minutes on Sunday against the Lakers.
O'Neale logged more minutes than Ricky Rubio tonight and has quietly been a strong producer for the Jazz for the second half of the season. Having a player that can play quality minutes off the bench has given the Jazz the depth they needed to get by when dealing the multiple injuries they've had this year. Look for him to be a solid role player as they head into the playoffs.

Ricky Rubio is being listed as questionable for Sunday’s game after missing Friday’s contest with left hamstring soreness.
The Jazz were able to top the Grizzlies last night but a matchup with the Wolves could be absolutely huge, so the team has to be hoping that Rubio feels good tomorrow. Royce O’Neale drew the start last night and produced 13 points, six rebounds, four assists, three steals and a triple in 36 minutes while Dante Exum scored 21 points with three rebounds, three assists, a steal and three triples in 27 minutes off the bench. Exum has more upside but if O’Neale is going to start you can feel free to use him.

Royce O'Neale was a key factor in the Jazz's win over the Grizzlies on Friday night, helping with 13 points, six rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer.
One of the most underrated finds of the season, O'Neale got his first start since the All-Star break on Friday night and responded kindly, packing the box score with good numbers. Obviously, Utah's number one rookie is one of the favorites to win Rookie of the Year, Donovan Mitchell, who scored 22 points and added three rebounds, four assists and a steal in tonight's win. But as far as Jazz rookies go, O'Neale is no slouch and he's setting himself up really well for next season.

Royce O’Neale will get the start with Ricky Rubio (hamstring) unavailable.
Looks like added distribution responsibilities for Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles. Dante Exum also will see additional run off the bench.

Royce O’Neale saw just 16 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Wolves, scoring three points on 1-of-3 shooting with one rebound, two assists and one block.
O’Neale’s starting to show the limitations of having lower minutes and he’s just a deep league asset with question marks.
February 24, 2018, 4:12 amRicky RubioPG, Utah Jazz
Ricky Rubio (hip) returned to action in Friday’s blowout loss to the Blazers, scoring four points on 2-of-6 shooting with four rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes.
The Jazz were bound to cool off and re-integrating Rubio might have been enough to throw them off. Look for him to get back on track here soon enough, and Royce O’Neale (two points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal, 27 minutes) did well to get his minutes but he’s not a must-own player in 12-team leagues. That said, his stat set has put him on the radar and he’s still an interesting stash to see if he can somehow rise to greater heights.
February 23, 2018, 7:38 pmRaul NetoPG, Utah Jazz
Backup point guard Raul Neto (ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Blazers.
With Ricky Rubio (hip) back in action, the news on Neto doesn’t have any fantasy implications. It should be noted that Royce O’Neale had been starting and playing well in Rubio’s absence, so Ricky’s return could render O’Neale unusable for standard leagues. We’ll have to see how it all plays out.
