Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio hit a game-winning 3-pointer against the Raptors on Friday, finishing with 14 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes. Donovan Mitchell hit him for the wide-open jumper to earn one of the biggest wins of the season. Rubio is having one of his best runs lately, averaging 11.2 points, 6.2 boards, 5.6 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.0 treys on 38.8 percent from the field over his last five. The bar is pretty low, but Rubio is at least trending up.

Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks scored five points with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Raptors on Friday. The Jazz went with a decent amount of Royce O'Neale to keep combat the Raptors size, so Burks didn't step up too much. He should still be the beneficiary from the Rodney Hood (leg) injury and apparently Hood has an excellent chance to be traded.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood (leg contusion) will not play against the Raptors on Friday. No surprise here as the Jazz will keep their oft-injured for at least four games. It's possible the Jazz are being extra careful with Hood because he's reportedly on the trade block. Alec Burks is a decent pickup in 14-team leagues while Joe Ingles and Joe Johnson could also benefit.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors racked up eight points, 10 rebounds, four steals and three blocks in just 24 minutes vs. the Pistons on Wednesday. Favors shot 4-of-11 from the field but had copious boards and defensive stats to satisfy fantasy owners. It's no secret that he and Rudy Gobert are an awkward fit in today's NBA, and sure enough, with the game in the balance coach Quin Snyder opted to bench Favors for the final 6:05 of regulation and all of overtime. His fantasy owners should at least keep an eye on the trade rumor-mill.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio suffered a gash above his left eye during Wednesday's game, but he returned to finish with 11 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes. Rubio also made 4-of-8 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws tonight for an all-around solid line. Despite some rocky stretches in his tenure with Utah, Rubio is clinging to late-round value and the assists and steals he provides aren't easy to duplicate on the waiver wire.

Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks had nine points, two rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench on Wednesday. Rodney Hood (leg) was out for the third straight game and Utah has been vague about his possible return date -- we'll consider him questionable for Friday. Burks was averaging 16.0 points in his previous two games, but his minutes aren't reliable enough even with Hood temporarily sidelined. Tread carefully.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Gobert recorded 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, four blocks and one assist across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 98-95 victory over the Pistons. Gobert seems to be progressing just fine from his sprained knee injury as he played 38 minutes, which ties his season-high for minutes in a game. Given that the game went to overtime, it will probably be an outlier going forward, but nonetheless, the fact he was able to push himself and play those extra minutes while leading the Jazz to a victory bodes well for a big man who has been sidelined for nearly half of the season so far.

Ricky Rubio    PG  Jazz

 

 

Rubio collected 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 98-95 victory over the Pistons. The overtime period allowed Rubio to collect his fifth double-double of the season. Earlier in the season, Rubio was using the assist and point categories to collect double-doubles, but lately, he has seen his rebounds tick up while his assists have failed to reach double-digits in 2018. Rubio continues to contribute in all categories however, making him a viable asset to the Jazz.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood (leg) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons. This will mark Hood's third straight game on the sidelines, and it's currently unclear if he'll be able to get back out there for Friday's game in Toronto. With Hood unavailable, there will be more minutes for Joe Johnson and Alec Burks, with Burks being the preferable fantasy target.

Rodney Hood    SG  Jazz

 

 

Hood (lower leg) is out for Wednesday's contest against the Pistons, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Hood will miss a third straight game Wednesday as he continues to recover from a lower leg bruise he suffered during Friday's tilt against New York. In his absence, Alec Burks should continue seeing extra run.
