    Mike Conley is probable to return from his strained left hamstring and face the Kings on Saturday.

    Conley's return has long been anticipated, and he can only go up after a lousy start to his career as part of the Jazz. He has not seen the court since December 17, and his return should hurt Joe Ingles' value to some degree as the two did not coexist well prior to Conely's injury. If he is available Conley is well worth a pickup to see if he can rediscover the early-round value he delivered for so many years in Memphis. He is simply too talented, and the Jazz are far too committed to this experiment to let Conley go on playing this poorly.

    Mike Conley will remain out Thursday vs. the Pelicans as he works himself back from a strained left hamstring.

    With Conley ruled out, Joe Ingles will continue to have additional ball-handling duties while Emmanuel Mudiay and Jordan Clarkson will continue to see more minutes off the bench. Conley's next opportunity to take the floor will come Saturday vs. the Kings.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale was held scoreless against the Nets on Tuesday, shooting 0-for-5 from the floor but providing six rebounds, four assists and a block in 32 minutes.

    O'Neale has primarily started and played about 30 minutes a night all season. But he's just one of those low-usage players that isn't ready to help in fantasy. His numbers would look fine for a wing if he scored an additional 10 points per game. Unless you're in a deep league or just need something from a streamer, O'Neale can be avoided.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert feasted on Tuesday with 22 points (9-of-12 FGs), 18 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks in 37 minutes as the Jazz beat the Nets 118-107 on the road.

    Gobert isn't exactly living up to his ADP, but his stats are close enough to his career averages that there's not really anything to complain about other than a small dip in blocks. Donovan Mitchell had a nice line with 25 points, three 3-pointers, four assists and a steal in 36 minutes in the victory.

  • Joe Ingles
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles tied a career high on Tuesday with 27 points (10-of-14 FGs) in addition to three rebounds, four assists, a steal and six 3-pointers in 30 minutes in a victory over the Nets.

    Ingles was on fire in this game. After a very slow start to the season, he is now among the top-40 over the past month in both 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. Ingles' production should take a slight hit when Mike Conley returns, but he should be worth starting for the rest of the season.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell (illness) will play against the Nets on Tuesday after missing Sunday's game against the Wizards.

    Donovan has hit a little bit of a slump over the past two weeks with value outside of the top-100 in 9/8 cat leagues, but he is in a nice rebound spot against the Nets. It's a good idea to gauge the trade value of Mitchell's owner in your leagues while he is in a mini-slump.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell (illness) listed as probable for Tuesday.

    Emmanuel Mudiay's minutes should take the biggest hit as Mitchell returns from a one-game absence. With Mike Conley still absent, Mitchell should continue to dominate in a variety of categories. He has averaged 24.2 points on 46.1 percent shooting from the field.

    Mike Conley (left hamstring strain) will miss Tuesday's game.

    Conley has missed nearly a month now.
    The Jazz do not seem to be rushing him back at this point. Meanwhile, Jordan Clarkson has averaged 15.2 points over his last ten contests and should continue to thrive while Conley is out.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Bojan Bogdanovic led the Jazz with 31 points to go along with three rebounds and three assists on 12-of-23 shooting during Sunday’s win over the Wizards.

    Bogdanovic led the Jazz in shot attempts with Donovan Mitchell nursing an illness and continues to provide valuable scoring that has him ranking in the top-75.

  • Jordan Clarkson
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Jordan Clarkson dominated off of the bench with 23 points, two rebounds, three assists and two steal on 10-of-22 shooting during Sunday’s win over the Wizards.

    Donovan Mitchell was forced to sit out of Sunday’s game with an illness and while Emmanuel Mudiay started, it was Clarkson who absorbed Mitchell’s usage. The Jazz have Monday off and if Mitchell is back in the lineup expect Clarkson’s shot attempts to come back down to reality.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert dominated the Wizards with 21 points, 14 rebounds, two blocks and one steal on 8-of-10 shooting during Sunday's 127-116 win over the Wizards.

    It was business as usual for Gobert on Sunday as he provided owners with a little bit of everything. Look for Gobert to follow up his solid performance in another fantastic matchup against the Nets on Tuesday.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay will start in place of Donovan Mitchell (illness) on Sunday versus the Wizards.

    Before you get too excited, note that Jordan Clarkson is now in town and will likely carve into Mitchell's vacated usage as well. Mudiay played well in the last one and has a great matchup, but it'll be hard to predict which one of him, Clarkson or Joe Ingles will emerge tonight, to say nothing of the blowout potential in tonight's game. Stream at your own peril.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley (left hamstring strain) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Wizards.

    This isn't breaking news by any stretch, but we're passing it along to dispel rumors of Conley's imminent return. He's begun traveling with the team and has been present at Jazz practices lately — though not participating — but we shouldn't expect the team to rush him back after he already re-aggravated the soft tissue injury once. With both Conley and Donovan Mitchell (illness) out on Sunday, we'll get a full dose of the Emmanuel Mudiay and Jordan Clarkson show on Sunday.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell (illness) will be held out of Sunday's game against the Wizards.

    Mitchell timed his illness perfectly since the Jazz are going against the sorry Wizards on Sunday, and it looks like holding Mitchell out is a strategic choice by the Jazz and not something we should expect to linger. Mitchell put up a season-worst dud on Friday and you have to wonder whether illness played a part in it. As usual, there's not much streaming value in Utah when one of their stars sit, but you can expect Joe Ingles to take over all or most of the primary ballhandling duties while Emmanuel Mudiay and Jordan Clarkson each will get a significant minutes and usage bump.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert had a classic line on Friday, recording 15 points (6-for-19 shooting), 13 rebounds, five blocks, three assists and a steal in 29 minutes as the Jazz defeaed the Hornets 109-92.

    So far this year offensive players have been less likely to challenge Gobert at the rim which is contributing to slightly depressed block numbers. That clearly wasn't an issue tonight with the five blocks being the fifth time all season he's had five or more.
