Thabo Sefolosha    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Thabo Sefolosha hit 5-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 26 minutes off the bench on Thursday. He had 11 points, eight boards, four steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in his previous game and is averaging 11.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers on 61 percent shooting over his last five. If you need steals, blocks and 3-pointers, he's worth a look right now, but will also take a hit once Rodney Hood is back from his ankle injury.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio hit 3-of-7 shots, a 3-pointer and 4-of-4 free throws for 11 points, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes of Thursday's 112-101 loss to the Rockets. Rookie Donovan Mitchell is running circles around most of his teammates right now, especially Rubio. Rubio is averaging just 5.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 steals over his last four games, and has hit just 7-of-26 shots (27%) over that stretch. He came on really strong in the second half last season, so there's still hope, but he wasn't playing alongside Mitchell then, either.

Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell stayed hot on Thursday, hitting 9-of-19 shots, two 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws for 26 points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 35 minutes. Mitchell has quickly become one of the most exciting players to own in fantasy and will likely finish as the waiver-wire pickup of the year for many owners. He's scored between 21 and 41 points in five of his last six games and is averaging 28.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 4.2 3-pointers over his last five games, while hitting 53 percent of his shots over that stretch. He looks like the leader of the Jazz on offense and Ricky Rubio's numbers are suffering as a result of Mitchell. Hopefully you were able to grab him off the wire, as he's a blast to own.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert hit 2-of-5 shots and 2-of-2 free throws for six points, nine rebounds, a steal, two blocks and five turnovers in Thursday's ugly loss to the Rockets. Gobert and Derrick Favors are not gelling together, but Gobert has now been back from his knee injury for three games and should be about ready to get it going. But so far it's been a rough ride, as Gobert is averaging just 5.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.7 blocks in his three games since the injury.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors hit just 2-of-4 shots for five points, five rebounds, one steals and two blocks in Thursday's 112-101 loss to the Rockets. Don't be fooled by the score, as this game was over by the end of the third quarter. Rudy Gobert and Favors did not play well again together for the Jazz, and Favors suddenly looks like a drop candidate now that Gobert is back. He's averaging just 7.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over his last three games. There's a decent chance he'll get hot again, despite the presence of Gobert, but it's far from a guarantee.

Raul Neto    PG  Jazz

 

 

Neto (foot) will be available for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Neto missed Tuesday's game against the Thunder due to foot soreness. But, he's seemingly feeling better and will give it a go Thursday. As a result, Alec Burks could see slightly reduced run.

Raul Neto    G  Jazz

 

 

Raul Neto (foot soreness) is available on Thursday vs. the Rockets. He'll likely back up Ricky Rubio tonight if he's feeling up to it, but he's averaging less than 15 minutes per game this season and isn't on the fantasy radar.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert confirmed that his right knee is "fine." Rudy missed almost four weeks with a bone bruise, and said that his second game back was "a little rough," but he's starting to feel like himself again. "I'm getting back into my playing shape, and it's a process," he said. "But I think [on Thursday] I'll play better for sure." It's all good news for his fantasy owners.

Raul Neto    PG  Jazz

 

 

Neto (foot) is probable to play Thursday against the Rockets, Kyle Goon of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Neto didn't play Tuesday against the Thunder because of foot soreness. If Neto is able to suit up, he'll likely cut into the playing time of Alec Burks.

Rodney Hood    SG  Jazz

 

 

Hood (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup with the Rockets, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Hood will be missing a sixth straight game, as he continues to work back from an ankle injury. The Jazz have not provided a concrete timetable for his return, however, so Hood will continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis moving forward. Look for Donovan Mitchell and Alex Burks to benefit once again with increased minutes in his place.
