  • Mike Conley

    Mike Conley went 0-for-6 from the field (0-for-2 from deep) but made all six free throw attempts to finish Wednesday's preseason game with six points, one rebound and one steal in 17 minutes.

    While Conley's line may be on the uglier side of the spectrum, we're not reading too much into this since it is, after all, a preason game. He's still a solid choice as a mid-round pick in fantasy after the top-tier guards are off the board.

    This looks to be nothing more than a routine preseason rest day for Gobert on Wednesday night but it does indicate Davis is the first big off the bench for Utah.

    Davis can provide some value as a rebound streamer during the season, but in general won't factor into season lineups unless Gobert gets hurt.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    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.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay (left hamstring soreness) and Dante Exum (knee) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Mudiay and Exum are going to compete for the backup PG job when they get healthy. Mudiay has a leg up on Exum, who is being brought along slowly after yet another surgery. Neither is worth a standard league target.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay

    Emmanuel Mudiay was a limited participant in Monday's practice because of left hamstring soreness.

    Mudiay's injury isn't expected to be serious at this point, though hamstring injuries can linger so it's something to watch out for. He'll be competing with Dante Exum for backup point guard minutes, though the addition of Mike Conley really limits the amount of minutes that will be available.

  • Joe Ingles
    SF, Utah Jazz

    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.

  • Jeff Green
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Jeff Green stepped up for the Jazz as they blew out the Adelaide 36er on Saturday 133-81, leading his team with 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting with two treys, two rebounds, one assist and two steals in 18 minutes.

    There's no need to read too much into this game. The Jazz were without Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Green is only worth targeting in deep leagues as long as the Jazz are healthy.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    The Jazz will rest Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conely, Rudy Gobert and Dante Exum in Saturday's game versus the Adelaide 36ers.

    Mitchell, Gobert and Exum all played during the FIBA tournament over the summer and could probably use a little rest. None of the players sitting are seriously injured and one would expect them to play during their next preseason game against an actual NBA team.

  • Ed Davis
    PF, Utah Jazz

    Even with training camp just beginning, Ed Davis has already drawn praise from his teammates and coaches due to his focus and his work ethic.

    Davis was brought in to back up Rudy Gobert and he will replace Derrick Favors as a defensive-minded center for when the two-time Defensive Player of the Year heads to the bench. Last season, while with the Nets, teams shot 3.8 percent fewer shots at the rim when Davis was in the game (second in the league only to Gobert), while he was one of the best rebounders in the NBA, averaging 8.6 boards per game in just 17.9 minutes. His intangibles though is what make him such an important piece and Jazz fans should be excited to see the big man fit in with the Jazz culture.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Though not considered severe, Mike Conley had to leave Jazz practice early after suffering from an allergic reaction.

    Assuming reports are correct, Conley should heal up soon, and this will have no impact on his opening day availability.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Bojan Bogdanovic mentioned on Monday that he knows he won't get as many shots this season with the Jazz.

    Bogdanovic really stepped up for the Pacers last season when Victor Oladipo went down with his injury. Today, he acknowledged what's plain to most of us: that he won't get as many shots in Utah. With Bogdanovic not as high on the pecking order, look for his points and threes to decrease this season. He could still provide standard-league value, but his ceiling isn't as high as other options in the late rounds.

  • Dante Exum
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Jazz guard Dante Exum, who is coming off surgery on his right knee, will be brought along conservatively in training camp.

    Exum has an extensive injury history but is expected to be ready for the regular season. He could even be used at shooting guard or forward instead of his usual point guard position. Exum is not a recommended fantasy option until he proves that he can play more than his average of 15.8 minutes last season.

  • Mike Scott
    G, Utah Jazz

    The Jazz have signed free agent point guard Mike Scott to a one-year contract, according to Nicola Lupo of Sportando.

    Scott spent last season playing in Poland after going undrafted out of the University of Idaho in 2016. The Jazz are already loaded at point guard with Mike Conley, Dante Exum, Emmanuel Mudiay and Nigel Williams-Goss all capable of manning the position, so the team could be signing Scott for the sole purpose of locking him down for their G League affiliate.

  • Thabo Sefolosha
    SF, Houston Rockets

    The Rockets have signed forward Thabo Sefolosha to a one-year contract.

    Sefolosha only played 12 minutes per game last season with the Jazz. However, he should be in the mix for reserve minutes with the Rockets. Aside from steals, he won't be that appealing to fantasy squads.

  • Thabo Sefolosha
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Thabo Sefolosha is among the attendees at Rockets minicamp in Las Vegas with a host of other notable free agents this week.

    Sefolosha will be joined by the likes of Nick Young, Luc Mbah a Moute, Raymond Felton, Terrence Jones and Corey Brewer. The odds of someone making the Rockets' roster increased with Iman Shumpert declining an offer sheet from the team.
