Jazz PG Emmanuel Mudiay (knee) won’t play Thursday vs. the Spurs.
With Mudiay out, look for increased usage for Joe Ingles and Mike Conley in the backcourt, although they could be on a minutes limit due to this being the final seeding game. Tread lightly for DFS purposes.
Emmanuel Mudiay put up 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3PT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal across 27 minutes during Utah's 114-122 loss to the Mavericks on Monday afternoon.
Mudiay has benefited from the increased playing time over his last two games, scoring 14 points in both outings. He did miss Saturday's loss to Denver with knee soreness but it doesn't appear to be an issue going forward. The 24-year-old guard likely won't see more than 25 minutes a night once the playoffs begin, but he has certainly made the most of the opportunity. If the Jazz decide to rest their starters once again in Friday's seeding-game finale, Mudiay could be in line for another hefty workload.
Jazz guard Emmanuel Mudiay has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Nuggets due to left knee soreness.
Coming off of a 14 point, five assist outing in Friday's loss to the Spurs, Mudiay is dealing with some soreness in his left knee and will be held out of Saturday's game as a result. With Mike Conley (knee) no longer listed on the injury report and Nigel Williams-Goss (ankle) ruled out, Jordan Clarkson could be called on to run the point behind Conley on Saturday. Donovan Mitchell (leg), who is currently questionable, could potentially see some more run at point guard if he is cleared to play.
Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is listed as probable for Monday's game against Houston.
Mudiay missed Saturday's game due to a sprained ankle. He will return in usual role off the bench. Mudiay is averaging 7.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.6 triples across 41 games this year.
Emmanuel Mudiay managed 14 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and five assists across 30 minutes in the Jazz’s 127-116 win over the Wizards on Sunday.
Mudiay provided some quality stats Sunday in his first start of the season, while filling in for Donovan Mitchell (illness). The former has been on a role as of late and deserves some consideration in 12-team leagues for as long as Mike Conley remains out.
