Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood started the second half of Sunday's game in place of Gordon Hayward (food poisoning), finishing with 18 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and zero turnovers in 35 minutes. Hayward gets one day off before Game 5 on Tuesday, but there's a chance Hood will be asked to make another fill-in start. He made 6-of-15 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs tonight, with a 3-of-5 mark from downtown, resulting in his highest-scoring game since Mar. 29. Hood has battled knee injuries all season and the Jazz can't be keen on playing him 32+ minutes consistently, but it all comes down to Hayward's availability.

Joe Johnson    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Joe Johnson was incredible in 35 minutes on Sunday, making 12-of-17 shots to score 28 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and one steal during a series-tying victory vs. the Clippers. The veteran scored 12 straight points to erase a late deficit and his contributions were the difference in the game, especially with Gordon Hayward ruled out early due to food poisoning. Johnson continues to have an amazing postseason, averaging 19.3 points and 1.5 threes through four games, including his memorable buzzer-beater in Game 1. Johnson's performance tonight was his most impressive yet, and Utah's decision to add him on a two-year, $22 million contract looks better than ever.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors shifted to the bench with Rudy Gobert (knee) active on Sunday, posting 17 points on 7-of-10 FGs and 3-of-6 FTs, with six rebounds, two steals, one assist and zero turnovers in 24 minutes. Favors averaged 34.3 minutes in the first three games of the series out of necessity, but that workload clearly took a toll on him. His scoring declined in each game and he simply didn't have it in Game 3 on Friday, scoring two points in 38 minutes of action. He looked rejuvenated tonight, expending more energy in fewer minutes, which is the best-case scenario for Utah's frontcourt.

Joe Ingles    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Joe Ingles handed out 11 assists during Sunday's thrilling Game 4 win, adding eight points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds, two steals and one block in 38 minutes of action. Ingles' dimes were more than any Jazz player had all season. He'll be a restricted free agent this summer and he's significantly boosted his stock during the playoffs, averaging 8.5 points, 2.0 triples, 4.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 2.0 steals. He's an interesting DFS option given his high playing time and moderate price, especially if Gordon Hayward (illness) is still limited on Tuesday.

Gordon Hayward    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Gordon Hayward (food poisoning) will not return to Sunday's game, finishing with three points and two rebounds in nine minutes. Hayward was on IVs due to food poisoning prior to the game, although he wasn't on the injury report and it was only reported minutes before tip-off. He checked out earlier than usual in the first quarter and soon headed to the locker room, after which the team eventually ruled him out for the night. We'll consider him questionable to play in Game 5 on Tuesday, and his absence means more minutes for Joe Johnson, Joe Ingles and Rodney Hood.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors will come off the bench on Sunday behind a frontcourt of Rudy Gobert and Boris Diaw. Favors has been maxing out his minutes despite obvious exhaustion with Gobert injured, so his role should shrink tonight.

Gordon Hayward    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Gordon Hayward (food poisoning) will play on Sunday. This is the first we've heard of his illness, which reportedly required him to take IVs throughout the day. Needless to say, he may not be 100 percent tonight.
