Date: Team: Pos:

Raul Neto (hamstring) is being sent down to get in a few practices with the G-League team.

He hasn't played at all this season due to the hamstring injury, but it looks like he's on the cusp of a return. That said, he's just the third-string PG on the roster and is completely irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Nov 13 - 2:36 PM

Donovan Mitchell hit just 3-of-14 shots vs. Memphis on Monday, finishing with 12 points, four assists, one rebound and one steal in 36 minutes.

He's now shooting just 41.7% on the season, a big reason why he's ranked just outside the top-50 in standard 9-category leagues. Mitchell missed a big chunk of the offseason recovering from a foot injury and has taken a couple knocks here and there that sidelined him for two games, so it's going to take some more time for him to get into a rhythm.

Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles scored a team-high 19 points in Monday's 96-88 win over the Grizzlies.

He added six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three triples, his second impressive line in a row after matching his career-high of 27 points on Friday with seven assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block and five triples in 35 minutes. He suffered a cut above his left eye tonight and was able to keep playing after the training staff bandaged him up, but Kevin McHale had one of the quotes of the night when he said Ingles' wrap looked like a "civil war bandage." Joe Ingles is the man.
Nov 13 - 12:40 AM

Ricky Rubio played through back spasms on Monday vs. the Grizzlies, finishing with seven points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one triple in 24 minutes.

Don't worry about the low minutes, as Rubio fouled out of this one. Rubio was just starting to heat up with 13.6 points, 9.0 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.2 triples in his previous five games, so look for him to get back on track vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday as the Jazz pursue their 4th straight win.
Nov 13 - 12:32 AM

Ricky Rubio (back) will be available to play Monday vs. Memphis.

He was previously listed as probable, and even though the Jazz will likely watch him closely, he's worth deploying in standard leagues. He's starting to heat up after a slow start, posting 13.6 points and 9.0 assists in his last five games.
Nov 12 - 6:42 PM

Ricky Rubio (back spasms) is probable for Monday's game vs. Memphis.

This is the first we've heard of back spasms for Rubio and the 'probable' tag suggests he'll be fine, but it couldn't hurt to double-check his status after shootaround.
Nov 11 - 7:33 PM

Rudy Gobert scored 17 points vs. the Celtics on Friday, adding 15 rebounds, two blocks and two assists in 36 minutes.

Gobert hit 6-of-8 shots and all five of his free throws to top off his impressive line. The 5-of-5 shooting from the line bumped him up to 61% on the season, and considering he hit 68.2% in 2017-18 and 65.3% in 2016-17, that means there's still plenty of room for it to trend up.
Nov 10 - 12:35 AM

Alec Burks cooled off on Friday vs. the Celtics, scoring three five points with one assist and one triple in 20 minutes.

He scored a combined 40 points in his previous two games, but took just three shots tonight. He did get the backup PG minutes over Dante Exum tonight, but that probably won't continue. He's not worth owning in most leagues while the Jazz are healthy.
Nov 10 - 12:28 AM

Donovan Mitchell scored 21 points vs. the Celtics on Friday, adding five assists, two rebounds, two steals and one triple.

That's the good news. The bad news is that he hit 5-of-14 shots with five turnovers. Mitchell has been banged up this season and his FG% is still holding him back in 9-category leagues, but we saw some some flashes of what he could do towards the end of October. There's a lot of room for Mitchell to grow once he gets healthy and finds his rhythm.
Nov 10 - 12:23 AM

Jae Crowder put on a show against his former Celtics on Friday, notching 20 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and four triples in 30 minutes.

It was another win for the revenge narrative with Gordon Hayward also playing well vs. his former team. Crowder hit 8-of-15 shots and has left Derrick Favors in the dust despite coming off the bench, playing at least 30 minutes in six out of his last seven games. He's sitting around the top-100 in standard leagues and that should be sustainable with the Jazz loving their small-ball lineups.
Nov 10 - 12:17 AM
Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles matched his career-high with 27 points (10-of-14 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) in Friday's 123-115 win over the Celtics, adding seven assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block and five triples in 35 minutes.

Ingles was averaging 9.5 points on 30.0% shooting in his previous four games, but picked a good time to heat up with his old friend Gordon Hayward in town. Underrated in both real life and fantasy with an increased role in the offense (his usage rate is up from 15.5 in 2017-18 to 17.8 in 2018-19), Ingles is a mid-round stud and lines like tonight prove that.
Nov 10 - 12:10 AM

Donovan Mitchell (ankle) started Wednesday's game and scored 23 points with seven assists, five rebounds, three 3-pointers and two steals in 33 minutes.

He made 9-of-17 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs and showed no signs of his recent hamstring and ankle injuries. They cost him two games but it could have been far worse, so fantasy owners should be thrilled. Mitchell draws a few tough matchups coming up vs. Boston (Friday) and Memphis (Monday), but as long as he's healthy there's nothing to worry about.
Nov 7 - 11:57 PM

Alec Burks scored 18 points off the bench on Wednesday, making 6-of-10 shots with four 3-pointers and one block in just 18 minutes.

Burks has returned from a hand injury with style, and this comes on the heels of Monday's efficient 22-point performance. He's shooting a combined 10-of-16 from deep this season and the Mavs' second unit isn't overflowing with offensive options, so he should continue to get the green light. With very few supporting stats, though, it's hard to rely on Burks outside of deep leagues.
Nov 7 - 11:56 PM
Joe Ingles - G/F - Jazz

Joe Ingles (dislocated finger) had six points, six assists, three steals, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes vs. the visiting Mavs on Wednesday.

Ingles shot 2-of-9 from the field with just one shot inside the arc, which is a slightly exaggerated version of his typical shot selection -- nearly 60% of his shot attempts have been 3-pointers. He was in a brutal shooting slump even before the finger injury, and has now made just 32.% of his shots after a red-hot start in Utah's first two games. He'll get it sorted out before long, so owners should just hang in there.
Nov 7 - 11:55 PM

Donovan Mitchell (ankle) will start vs. Dallas on Wednesday.

He was probable to play after missing one game. Mitchell has suffered a hamstring injury and missed a game last week, and it looked like his ankle issue last weekend would've kept him out for a while. However, he's expected to start and gets a great matchup.
