Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) was a partial participant during shootaround, but he remains questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Warriors. Favors sat out Monday's practice and the fact that he was still somewhat limited during shootaround isn't exactly encouraging. It looks like he'll be a game-time call tonight, and if he is indeed forced to the sidelines, Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey would have the opportunity for some increased minutes and Rudy Gobert would likely get all the run he could handle. Stay tuned.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) did not practice on Monday and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 matchup with the Warriors. Favors opting to sit out Monday's practice in order to really rest up his back should be viewed as a good thing, and it would be surprising to see him miss a playoff game with some back "soreness." We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity at Tuesday morning's shootaround, but if he is forced to the sidelines, Boris Diaw and Jeff WIthey would be in line for an uptick in minutes.

Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks (knee) could be shut down for the remainder of the postseason according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. To be clear, a final decision has not been made yet. Burks is listed as out indefinitely after getting PRP treatment on his left knee in mid-March, but he wasn't expected to see more than a handful of minutes anyways with the Jazz healthy for the most part.

Joe Ingles    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Joe Ingles scored a postseason-high 12 points in 36 minutes during Sunday's Game 7 victory, making 4-of-6 shots with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, four steals and one block. Ingles' all-around game was a key to the series, which he finished with averages of 6.6 points, 1.4 threes, 3.9 boards, 4.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.6 blocks. His defense was particularly impressive, and today's scoring was a welcome sight after he posted a combined zero points on 0-of-8 shooting in Utah's previous two games. Ingles and the Jazz get one day off before Game 1 in Golden State on Tuesday.

Gordon Hayward    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Gordon Hayward finished Utah's series-clinching win on Sunday with 26 points (9-of-20 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), eight rebounds, three assists and a pair of 3-pointers in 42 minutes of action. Hayward scored just three points in nine minutes during Game 4 in Utah, due to food poisoning, but in the other six games he averaged an impressive 27.2 points, 2.7 threes, 8.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 0.8 steals. He played an exhausting 41.0 minutes in those games, and should be just as busy in a tough matchup vs. Kevin Durant and the Warriors in the second round.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert fouled out in just 13 minutes of play on Sunday, finishing with just one point and four rebounds in Utah's Game 7 win. Gobert was a complete no-show in this one, going 0-of-1 from the field and 1-of-2 from the charity stripe, but Utah still pulled out the win with their suffocating defense. Gobert's bum ankle didn't appear to be much of an issue at all, and now he'll have until Tuesday to rest up for Game 1 against the Warriors, so he should be just fine moving forward.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors posted a 17-point, 11-rebound double-double during Sunday's Game 7 win over the Clippers, adding three assists and one steal before fouling out in 30 minutes. This was Favors’ first double-double since March 3, and he stepped up big time for Utah with Rudy Gobert struggling with foul trouble for much of the game. He was also excellent on the offensive glass, posting an offensive rebounding percentage of 21.1, and he was a major X-factor for the Jazz, posting a net rating of 25.7. It'll be interesting to see if he can keep this momentum going into Tuesday's Game 1 matchup with the Warriors.
