  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Dud game in return

    Gay provided zero points (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 10 minutes during Monday's 126-125 victory over the Timberwolves.

    Gay saw the floor for 10 minutes after sitting during Utah's last game due to back spasms but didn't score a single point, going 0-for-4 from the field. He is still part of the rotation but doesn't get the minutes or usage to have much fantasy value this season.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Will play Monday

    Gay (back) will be available for Monday's game against the Timberwolves.

    The veteran forward has been battling back spasms of late, but he'll be available as the Jazz tip off a three-game week. Gay typically sees 12-to-18 minutes off the bench, though he could see a slight uptick in playing time Monday with Lauri Markkanen (hip) and Kelly Olynyk (ankle) both sidelined.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Questionable Monday

    Gay (back) is questionable for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

    Gay was unavailable Saturday against the 76ers due to lower back spasms, but he'll have a chance to return to action against Minnesota. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 5.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.2 minutes per game.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Out Saturday

    Gay will not play in Saturday's matchup with the 76ers due to lower back spasms, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Gay and the Jazz are playing the second night of a back-to-back set, so it looks like the Jazz are going to err on the side of caution with the veteran's back. His next chance to suit up will come Monday against the Timberwolves.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Meaningful role continues Thursday

    Gay ended with two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals over 18 minutes during Thursday's 132-129 overtime victory over the Pelicans.

    Gay logged at least 15 minutes for the fifth consecutive game, although the production tells another tale. While he has been a regular part of the rotation of late, he has scored more than five points only once, sitting well outside the top 250 overall. It's always nice to see veterans playing a role on young, rebuilding teams, but his fantasy value is basically non-existent at this point.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Gets 15 minutes in return

    Gay (finger) generated nine points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 15 minutes in Wednesday's 124-123 win over the Warriors.

    Taking the court for the first time since Nov. 13, Gay claimed a spot in the rotation and fared well during his time on the court. With all of Kelly Olynyk, Jarred Vanderbilt and Walker Kessler viewed as greater priorities in the frontcourt, Gay is unlikely to see his role expand much moving forward, and the impending return of Lauri Markkanen (illness) could even result in Gay losing some minutes.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Off injury report

    Gay (finger) isn't among the players on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game versus the Warriors.

    Gay hasn't appeared in a game for the Jazz since Nov. 13 but seems poised to make his return Wednesday. He should slot in as a contributor off the bench, but he isn't exactly a fantasy darling at this point in his career.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Practices Monday

    Gay (finger) was a full participant in Monday's practice, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Gay has been out for roughly three weeks due to a finger sprain but is hoping to make his return Wednesday against the Warriors after putting in a full practice session. In his 12 appearances this season, Gay has averaged 4.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Out again Saturday

    Gay (finger) won't dress for Saturday's game versus the Trail Blazers, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Gay doesn't have a defined target date for his return to the floor, but he remains out Saturday and hasn't suited up since Nov. 13. His next opportunity to do so arrives Wednesday versus the Warriors.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Still out

    Gay (finger) will miss Friday's game against the Pacers, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Gay was ruled out for at least two weeks Nov. 17 and will remain out Friday against the Pacers. Simone Fontecchio should continue to see extended run for as long as Gay is out. His next chance to play will come Saturday against the Pacers.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Out at least two more weeks

    The Jazz announced Thursday that Gay will be out at least two more weeks due to a left finger sprain, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Gay was unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks and underwent an MRI that revealed a third finger MCP joint sprain in his left hand. He'll be re-evaluated in approximately two weeks, while his absence should allow Lauri Markkanen and Simone Fontecchio to see increased run.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Won't suit up Tuesday

    Gay will miss Tuesday's game versus the Knicks due to a left hand sprain, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Despite a lengthy injury history, Gay hadn't missed a game yet this season due to injury before Tuesday, though he missed a three-game stretch while in COVID-19 protocols. The veteran's next chance to rejoin the action surfaces Friday versus the Suns.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: No longer in protocols

    Gay (COVID-19) was left off the Jazz's injury report.

    Gay missed the last three games while in COVID-19 protocols but should be set to return for Wednesday's game versus the Mavericks. Gay should return to playing 15-20 minutes per game as a primary backup at the forward position.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Will travel with team

    Gay (COVID-19) will travel with the team during Utah's upcoming three-game road trip, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Gay has missed three straight games while in COVID-19 protocols and may be sidelined for additional contests but appears likely to return at some point during Utah's upcoming three-game road trip. Before being sidelined, the veteran forward averaged 5.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 17.0 minutes per game.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Out again Monday

    Gay (COVID-19) remains out Monday against Memphis.

    The veteran will miss a third straight game after initially landing in protocols midway through last week. The team has confirmed that he's out of health and safety protocols, per Tony Jones of The Athletic, but he'll remain out until his conditioning is up to game standards. Gay will be monitored on a day-to-day basis ahead of Wednesday's game at Dallas.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Won't play Saturday

    Gay (Covid-19 protocols) won't suit up for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

    Gay entered the protocols Thursday, so it's not too surprising that he'll miss a second straight game Saturday after sitting out Friday's tilt. The veteran's next chance to rejoin the action surfaces Monday in a rematch with Memphis.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Enters protocols

    Gay (COVID-19) has entered health and safety protocols and has been ruled out for Friday's matchup against the Nuggets

    Gay missed practice Thursday due to feeling under the weather and has entered the league's health and safety protocols. the 36-year-old has amassed 5.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 16.8 minutes per game as a frontcourt depth option for the Jazz, and his absence could open up more minutes at the four for Jarred Vanderbilt and Lauri Markkanen.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Absent from Thursday's practice

    Gay didn't practice Thursday since he was feeling under the weather, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports.

    Both Gay and Walker Kessler were unable to participate in Thursday morning's practice session due to illnesses. It's unclear whether either will be unavailable for Friday's game against the Nuggets. If Gay is held out against Denver, Talen Horton-Tucker is a strong candidate to see increased minutes.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Efficient in shocking win

    Gay chipped in 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 3Pt), two assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 123-102 victory over the Nuggets.

    As has been the trend in recent seasons, Gay came off the bench but looked comfortable in that role, as he was an efficient scorer while finishing as one of Utah's best players in this shocking win. That said, the nature of his role would suggest Gay shouldn't be trusted as a regular fantasy contributor, as he's often prone to mix strong games with some below-par performances from time to time.

  • Jazz's Rudy Gay: Solid off bench in loss

    Gay recorded 16 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and six rebounds over 19 minutes in a preseason loss to the Mavericks on Friday.

    Gay finished second on the team in scoring in the contest despite playing less than 20 minutes. Friday's tilt was the first in three exhibition games that he finished with double-digit points. The veteran isn't a great fit on the rebuilding Jazz, so he shouldn't be expected to put up fantasy-relevant numbers while he's on the team. There's a decent chance that he gets moved elsewhere during the campaign.
