Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz



Gobert (knee) took part in a light practice Sunday and is now questionable for Monday's matchup with the Wizards, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Gobert was originally given a timetable of four-to-six weeks on Nov. 12 with a bone bruise in his right knee, but appears to be progressing much quicker than expected in his recovery. It's been just three weeks since then and he's already gone through a light practice, though the exact details of that session remain unclear. While that bodes well for a return in the near future, it wouldn't be surprising if he ultimately missed a game or two more, especially considering the Jazz are heading into a back-to-back set. Either way, Gobert will be considered questionable for Monday and his return would ultimately mean decreased roles for the likes of Derrick Favors, Jonas Jerebko and Thabo Sefolosha. Look for another update on Gobert following Monday's morning shootaround.

Rodney Hood    SG  Jazz



Hood (ankle) did not practice Sunday and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Wizards, Kyle Goon of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Hood has now missed the past three games with a left ankle injury and still isn't healthy enough to participate in practice. He'll likely test out his ailing ankle in Monday morning's shootaround, at which point we'll have a better idea as to his availability for the team's contest against the Wizards.

Tony Bradley    PF  Jazz



Bradley was assigned to the G-League on Saturday. Bradley will head back to Salt Lake City after playing just three minutes across three games during his latest stint with the Jazz. Barring multiple injuries to Utah's rotation, Bradley will continue to play a very limited role for the Jazz.

Ricky Rubio    PG  Jazz



Rubio was scoreless (0-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT) over 27 minutes in Friday's 114-108 win over the Pelicans but did haul in seven rebounds, dish out four assists and record a block. Despite coming up empty in the scoring column for the first time this season, Rubio salvaged his night to an extent with his best rebound total since Nov. 11, as well as a quartet of dimes. His offensive production is subject to the occasional unexpected downturn, but the 27-year-old is boasting career highs in field goals (4.0), shot attempts (10.4) and points (12.5) over his first 22 games in a Jazz uniform.

Joe Ingles    SF  Jazz



Ingles collected 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and one steal across 39 minutes in Friday's 114-108 win over the Pelicans. Ingles has scored in double digits in four of his last five games and continues to play a relatively reliable complementary offensive role. His long-range shooting continues to be a principal source of production, as he's drained multiple threes in eight of his last nine contests. Ingles has also been particularly effective setting teammates up for scoring opportunities lately, as he's dished out between six and nine assists in four consecutive contests.

Alec Burks    SG  Jazz



Burks contributed 24 points (10-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block across 31 minutes in Friday's 114-108 win over the Pelicans. The veteran sharpshooter has been heavily involved in his bench role over the last five games, posting a 25.0 percent usage rate and averaging 18.0 points (on 55.9 percent shooting, including 47.6 percent from three-point range), 3.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 made three-pointers over that span. Burks is still somewhat scoring-reliant for his production but has been more involved on the boards lately as well, hauling in at least six rebounds in six of his last nine games.

Derrick Favors    PF  Jazz



Favors tallied 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-7 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 34 minutes in Friday's 114-108 win over the Pelicans. The veteran big man continues to be an above-average source of scoring and rebounding for both the Jazz and fantasy owners while drawing starts at center in Rudy Gobert's (knee) stead. Favors now has back-to-back double-doubles, and he's shot at least 62.5 percent in five straight contests while scoring in double digits in each of those games.

Donovan Mitchell    SG  Jazz



Mitchell registered 41 points (13-25 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 9-11 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 37 minutes in Friday's 114-108 victory over the Pelicans. It was a record-setting night for the rookie in multiple ways, as he set a new franchise benchmark in scoring for a first-year player and also become the first NBA rookie to score 40 points in a game since Blake Griffin accomplished the feat in 2011. Mitchell scored 29 of his 40 points in the second half, keying a fourth-quarter comeback by the Jazz against a Pelicans squad that played the majority of the final period without Anthony Davis (groin). Mitchell has now scored between 24 and Friday's 41 points in three of his past four games, shooting between 52.0 and 56.3 percent in those contests. He's also been particularly aggressive from long distance, putting up double-digit shot attempts from behind the arc in all three games.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz



Ricky Rubio was held to zero points on 0-of-7 shots against the Pelicans on Friday. Donovan Mitchell and Alec Burks combined for 65 points, so the Jazz were lucky to escape with their fifth straight win despite Rubio's donut. He did have seven rebounds with four assists and a steal, but the buy-low window is still wide open after yet another dud. He'll look to bounce back against a Wizards team on Monday that is missing John Wall.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz



Derrick Favors notched 18 points with 11 rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. He had a really strong game against DeMarcus Cousins, and he's basically been a new player since Rudy Gobert (knee) went down. Gobert is set to be re-evaluated next week and will more than likely be cleared based on recent reports, so Favors' owners should prepare for a dip in value.
