Utah Jazz

Western Northwest

Donovan Mitchell recorded 22 points (9-22 FG, 2-8 3PT, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, and one block over 42 minutes of play in Tuesday's Game 7 loss to Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Donovan Mitchell struggled from the floor and turned the ball over in a key possession late in the game. It was a rough end to his season, but Mitchell flashed brilliance in the playoffs. He could be a key riser on fantasy draft boards next season.

Rudy Gobert put up 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-4 FT), 17 rebounds, and two blocks over 38 minutes of play in Utah's Game 7 loss to Denver Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Gobert closed out the series with three straight double-doubles and averaged 15.1 points and 13.5 rebounds during the regular season. He will continue to be a solid mid-round center target in fantasy leagues next season.

Mike Conley logged 21 points (7-13 FG, 4-6 3PT, 3-4 FT), six assists, five rebounds, and one steal in Sunday's Game 6 loss to the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Conley has played great in all four games since returning from paternity leave, scoring 27, 26, 17, and 21 in each performance. The Jazz will have to face off for Game 7 and they will certainly lean on Conley's veteran savviness and efficient offensive game.

Jordan Clarkson recorded 17 points (6-14 FG, 4-7 3PT, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, and two assists over 26 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Clarkson has played consistent minutes off the bench for the Jazz, though his fantasy stats have been up and down. He'll be a risky upside play in lineups Thursday in Game 6.

Joe Ingles put up 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3PT), three rebounds, and three assists over 32 minutes of play Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Ingles has had an up and down series so far against the Nuggets. He plays enough minutes to maintain a safe floor but doesn't offer much in the way of a fantasy ceiling.

Royce O'Neale tallied nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 3 PT), eight assists, seven rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 34 minutes, as the Jazz defeated the Nuggets 124-105 to tie the series at one.

Fantasy Impact: After failing to show up in Game 1, O'Neale bounced back with a well-rounded performance. He demonstrated his chops as a facilitator, dishing out a career-best eight assists. However, he is unlikely to repeat this figure, as he isn't known for his passing. Regardless, O'Neale will look to maintain his momentum heading into tomorrow's game.

Tony Bradley scored zero points (0-3 FG) and grabbed nine rebounds in Monday's 125-135 loss to the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has only scored double-digits once since entering the double. He's pretty irrelevant in fantasy as long as Gobert is healthy.

In a surprise move, Jazz F Juwan Morgan will replace Mike Conley in the starting lineup against the Nuggets on Monday. (Source: Sarah Todd on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Jazz starting lineup of Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Royce O'Neale, Juwan Morgan, and Rudy Gobert has played a whopping zero minutes together this season. Morgan's skill set has drawn comparisons to Paul Millsap, so its fitting his first opportunity for significant playing time would come against Paul Millsap. DFS players should consider Morgan a deep flier for Monday's slate.

Per sources, Utah Jazz F Ed Davis (knee) will miss the first-round playoff series versus the Denver Nuggets and will be re-evaluated in a few weeks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski in Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis left Thursday’s contest versus San Antonio with an injury to his left knee and after further evaluation, was diagnosed with a sprained MCL. His absence for the first-round series against the Nuggets leaves a vacancy in the Jazz front-court off the bench, and Tony Bradley will likely get more minutes with Davis being out. Mike Conley will also miss the first-round due to the birth of his child.

Jazz PG Emmanuel Mudiay (knee) won’t play Thursday vs. the Spurs. (Source: Utah Jazz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Rayjon Tucker put up a career-high 17 points (4-7 FG, 8-9 FT, 1-3 3PT), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 28 minutes of playing time during Utah's 114-112 loss to the Mavericks on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: With Donovan Mitchell (leg) sidelined due to injury and the Jazz resting their starters for the second half, Rayjon Tucker was able to get some extra playing time. The 22-year-old rookie didn't disappoint, scoring a career high 17 points on 57 percent shooting. If the Jazz opt to take it easy with their key players once again in Friday's final seeding game against the Spurs, Tucker could be in for extended minutes once again.

Jazz F Georges Niang will enter the starting lineup Friday against the Spurs. (Source: Andy Larsen on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With most of the usual Jazz starters resting in this one, Niang will have an opportunity for increased usage in the starting five. He’s played well in four games for Utah so far and should look for his shot even more today.

The Utah Jazz will start Miye Oni, Joe Ingles, Georges Niang, Tony Bradley, and Ed Davis Friday vs. the Spurs. (Source: Andy Larsen on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley, and Rudy Gobert all resting Friday, the starting lineup for the Jazz looks a bit different against the Spurs. There will be some real value in a lot of these guys. Oni has only seen action in one game during the re-start thus far, but will get a chance as a starter today.

Utah Jazz F Bojan Bogdanovic will undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist, sources tell ESPN. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Bogdanovic injured his wrist in January but decided to play through the pain. Since the shutdown, the pain has apparently gotten worse, and the seven-year veteran has decided to undergo surgery that will shut him down for the remainder of this season. Bogdanovic signed a four-year, $73M deal with Utah last summer and was having the best year of his career this season, averaging 20.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game. He’ll be ready to go come the start of the 2020-2021 campaign.
