George Hill    G  Jazz

 

 

George Hill scored 16 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes during a 97-95 win over the Clippers on Saturday. He looked great and perhaps he's healthy for the first time in a while. Hill's foot injuries have kept his minutes and game totals limited, so getting 37 minutes out of Hill will help offset the loss of Rudy Gobert (knee). Even against Chris Paul's defense, Hill should make an impact on the stat sheet during this series.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors started the second half for Rudy Gobert (knee) against the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 15 points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes. He was totally gassed at the end of this game and could barely get off the floor to go for a rebound. Since returning from injury on Apr. 7, Favors didn't play more than 21 minutes in those three games, averaging just 9.0 points, 4.3 boards, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 17.0 minutes. His legs are going to be feeling it tomorrow, and thankfully the Jazz are off until Tuesday. If Gobert is out, the Jazz will likely have to play Favors 30 minutes, which is almost certainly more than they planned.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert (left knee sprain) is getting an MRI on Saturday night. He also had X-rays and the results were negative, so he didn't break anything. The Jazz are wasting no time to diagnose the league's best defensive center. In case you missed it, Gobert went down on the very first play of the game and he was ruled out later in the first quarter. Gobert took contact to the inner part of his knee and it may have caused a hyperextension. The Jazz should have an update on Gobert at some point on Sunday. If he's out, there is a ton of pressure on Derrick Favors and it turns out Joe Johnson is going to have to be a huge key with defense against Blake Griffin. Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey will also have to help out.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert suffered a left knee sprain in the first quarter on Saturday and will not return. Ugh. Just 20 seconds into Rudy Gobert's playoff career, he is ruled out for the night. Gobert's left knee collided with Luc Mbah a Moute, and Gobert did need some help to the locker room. Considering he was ruled out in the first quarter, Gobert is likely going to get an MRI. With him out, it'll be a major team effort with Jeff Withey, Derrick Favors, Boris Diaw and maybe even Trey Lyles having to step up. The Jazz will also have to go small a ton, which isn't exactly good news against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert (leg) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Saturday. On the very first play of the game, Gobert's left leg looked like it took on some knee-to-knee contact. Gobert needed some help to the locker room, but he was able to put weight on it. Derrick Favors' knees are likely going to be tested a lot in this game. This is a nightmare start for the Jazz.

Boris Diaw    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Boris Diaw said he thinks he will be in the starting lineup against the Clippers for Game 1 on Saturday. Feel free to chalk this up to misleading information, but it does make sense to bring Derrick Favors off the bench until he can show he can play longer stints. Diaw will likely have to guard Blake Griffin out of the gate and isn't expected to do much scoring in this series.
