Top Jazz News

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Expected to remain starter

    Coach Will Hardy disclosed that Kessler will likely remain in the starting five even once Kelly Olynyk (ankle) is available, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    This is great news for fantasy managers that have taken a chance on Kessler, hoping he would force himself into a starting role at some point in the year. The rookie has started the past eight games, averaging 11.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.4 assists while shooting 67.2 percent from the field. His poor free-throw shooting -- 53.8 percent on the season -- caps his upside, but Kessler is practically a must-roster in all standard fantasy leagues at this point due to his blocks and rebounds potential.

  • Jazz's Kelly Olynyk: Full participant at practice Friday

    Olynyk (ankle) was a full participant during Friday's practice, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Olynyk has missed eight straight contests due to a left ankle sprain, but his participation at practice Friday suggests he's nearing a return to game action. More clarity on his status for Saturday's game against the Mavericks will presumably surface when Utah releases its next injury report.

  • Jazz's Mike Conley: Double-digit dimes in loss

    Conley accumulated eight points (3-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five rebounds, 10 assists and two steals across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 134-124 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Conley came into Wednesday hitting double-digit points in five of the last six games and had dished out 39 assists to just four turnovers during that span. He managed only eight points on the night, but the veteran ball handler dished out 10 dimes against Portland, marking his first double-digit performance since Jan. 5. His assist-to-turnover ratio has given him some value this season in nine-category leagues.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Another 20-point performance

    Markkanen finished with 24 points (7-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 134-124 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    The sixth-year pro continues his breakout campaign in Utah, scoring over 20 points for the 17th consecutive contest. He broke a double-double streak of five games with just four boards. Markkanen is currently on pace to set career highs in points per game, three-pointers made per game, field goal percentage, and three-point field goal percentage.

  • Jazz's Micah Potter: Requires elbow surgery

    Potter will undergo surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow and will be re-evaluated in 4-to-6 weeks, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Potter has spent the last few weeks in the G League but will miss significant time after sustaining a right elbow injury. It's possible he's able to return prior to the end of the G League season, but a better idea of his status should come into focus once he's re-evaluated. He averaged 14.3 points and 11.3 rebounds in 31.5 minutes per game for the Stars during the regular season prior to suffering the injury.

  • Jazz's Johnny Juzang: Struggles from deep in loss

    Juzang tallied 12 points (3-12 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds and two assists during Monday's loss to Ontario.

    Juzang struggled overall from the field, shooting just 25.0 percent overall and a mere 22.2 percent from deep. Juzang is averaging 17.8 points in the G League this season.

  • Jazz's Jordan Clarkson: Scores 18 points in win

    Clarkson had 18 points (8-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt) and two assists across 29 minutes during Monday's 120-102 win over Charlotte.

    Clarkson struggled a bit from deep and didn't contribute in any other categories, so this was far from his best fantasy performance. At least he remains a consistent scoring weapon, though, putting up 15-plus points in 18 games in a row. He's averaging 23.1 points per game in that span.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Produces 13 points efficiently

    Kessler contributed 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 FT) and nine rebounds in 22 minutes during Monday's 120-102 win over the Hornets.

    For only the fourth time this season in which he's played at least 20 minutes, Kessler finished without a block. Even so, the rookie was still able to come through with a useful line for fantasy managers while achieving his scoring efficiently. The rookie has started each of Utah's last seven games and has averaged 11.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 27.9 minutes while knocking down two-thirds of his field-goal attempts.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Claims fifth straight double-double

    Markkanen chipped in 25 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal over 32 minutes during Monday's 120-102 win over Charlotte.

    Markkanen missed two games due to a hip injury earlier this month, but that hasn't slowed him down. He's now recorded double-doubles in each of his last five appearances and is averaging 28.9 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.3 three-pointers, 1.4 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.8 blocks per game in January while converting at a 48.4 percent rate from the field and a 90.2 percent rate from the free-throw line.
