Utah Jazz

Western Northwest

Fantasy Impact: The All-Star PG for the Utah Jazz will not lend his talents to the Team USA roster, using the offseason to rest and rehab his right ankle. The fourth-year point guard out of the University of Lousiville had a spectacular season, averaging 26.4 points and 5.2 assists per game. He also balled out against the Los Angeles Clippers during the Western Conference Semifinals but was unable to lift the Jazz over Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, losing four consecutive games after winning their first two.

Rudy Gobert totaled 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-4 FT), ten rebounds, two assists, and two steals in the Jazz’s 131-119 loss to the Clippers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Gobert scored 12.0 points in the Jazz’s series semifinal finale loss to the Jazz, ending the series averaging 35.8 minutes, 12.5 points, 11.7 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals per game while shooting 71.5 percent from the floor and 70.9 percent from the charity stripe.

Fantasy Impact: Conley returns to the court as Utah trails 3-2 in the series against the Clippers. It has not yet been announced whether or not he will be limited in any fashion.

Jordan Clarkson totaled 15 points (5-12 FG, 4-9 3PT, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and one steal in the Jazz’s 119-111 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Clarkson readies for his moment after the Jazz’s loss to the Clippers in Game Five. With Donovan Mitchell, less than 100.0 percent, the energy, production, and rhythm needed to get the team ignited will have to come from somewhere, and Clarkson has the skill and prowess to do just that. He is very score dependent, a considerable risk, but he has been reasonably consistent in maintaining a strong production floor. Clarkson could have his moment in "Sun" tonight if he can start fast, but at the same time, he could produce a fantasy effort that helps your cause but may not help you win your cause.

Bojan Bogdanovic totaled 32 points (10-20 FG, 9-17 3PT, 3-4 FT) and three rebounds in the Jazz’s 119-111 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Bogdanovic will look to stay active after the Jazz’s win over the Clippers in Game Five. He finally let loose and decided to put up his best scoring performance since May 7th, when the Jazz went head-to-head against the Denver Nuggets and scored 48.0 points. In the five games in which he attempted more than 20.0 field goals, he has averaged 34.0 points. It is up in the air for what we will get tonight, as the Jazz will be in survival mode and could default to generating production through Donovan Mitchell should he play. Bogdanovic should able to post another roster-worthy fantasy performance, especially with value at this position being thin.

Joe Ingles totaled 19 points (7-9 FG, 5-7 3PT), three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in the Jazz’s 118-104 loss to the Clippers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Ingles will look to call his shot after the Jazz's loss to the Clippers in Game Four. He has been an invaluable scoring asset in this series for the Jazz and will look to continue putting his "stamp" on this offense as the team travels home to do battle against a compromised Clippers squad. This streak of his has the chance to end tonight, as he has shown to be a player who thrives over time, and the more he is familiar with a certain game context. The series moving back home to Utah could lead to him being less effective on the floor. However, with that being said, he does have the ability to sustain long streaks of double-digit scoring production as he had streaks of seven and eight, respectively, from April 8th to May 8th. Tonight could be his best game of the series from a non-scoring stats standpoint with Kawhi Leonard out. Ingles does have the ability to stuff the stat sheet any given night, and he may be able to do so in this Game Five contest.

Royce O’neale totaled 17.0 points (7-11 FG, 3-7 3PT), six rebounds, two assists, one block, and four steals in the Jazz’s 126-110 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: O’neale scored 17.0 points in the Jazz’s series finale win over the Grizzlies, ending the series averaging 34.8 minutes, 11.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.6 steals per game while shooting 48.9 percent from the floor and 52.0 percent from beyond the arc.

Georges Niang scored 11 points (3-7 FG, 3-6 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with two rebounds and one steal in Utah's loss Wednesday against Portland.

Fantasy Impact: Niang has scored in double figures in five of his last six games.

Ersan Ilyasova scored 20 points (7-11 FG, 6-8 3PT) to go along with five rebounds, four steals and two blocks in Utah's loss Saturday against the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Ilyasova hit a combined four three-point shots in his first eight games with Utah, nailing five shots from deep in the first quarter alone Saturday against Los Angeles. He saw the start with a number of key Jazz players sidelined, and took full advantage of the opportunity. He should continue to see this type of opportunity as long as Donovan Mitchell (ankle) is sidelined.

Fantasy Impact: The Jazz will be without Favors, Rudy Gobert (knee), Mike Conley (knee) and Donovan Mitchell (ankle) in this game. Georges Niang should be the biggest beneficiary with Favors sidelined.
