Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors is expected to move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Clippers. Rudy Gobert (knee) has officially been ruled out for Game 2, so Favors should see his minutes in the 30s as Utah's starting center. Favors posted 15 points, six boards, two assists and one block through 32 minutes sans Gobert on Saturday, so that should be the baseline expectations for Favors moving forward.

Rudy Gobert (left knee) has officially been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Clippers. This is not surprising at all considering that Gobert is dealing with both a hyperextension and bone bruise to his left knee, an injury that typically requires a multi-game absence. Head coach Quin Snyder said that he was hopeful to have Gobert back in action "in a week or two," so Game 3 on Friday also seems quite unrealistic. Derrick Favors should be Utah's starting center moving forward, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey.

Derrick Favors said that his troublesome left knee felt fine after logging 30 minutes during Game 1 on Saturday. "I felt good. It was my first time playing 30 minutes in a long time," he said. "I didn't have any pain in my knee, no discomfort. I was just a little fatigued." That last part might be an understatement, as he looked exhausted for much of the second half, but his strong effort helped Utah overcome Rudy Gobert's injury to steal a road win. With Gobert questionable for Game 2, Favors might be leaned on for big minutes once again.

Rudy Gobert (left knee bone bruise) has not yet officially been ruled out for Game 2 against the Clippers on Tuesday. While head coach Quin Snyder would not officially rule out Gobert following Sunday's practice, it would be quite shocking to see Gobert get back out there considering this kind of injury typically takes a multi-game absence. For what it's worth, Joe Johnson said that Gobert was "walking around" and "looked normal" on Sunday, so it does seem there's a chance he'll be able to get back out there at some point during Utah's first-round series. Stay tuned.

An MRI on Rudy Gobert (knee) revealed a hyperextension and bone bruise in his left knee, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. This is good news for Gobert and he has no structural damage. However, a knee bone bruise usually results in a multiple-game absence, so Gobert should be considered doubtful for Game 2 on Tuesday for now. Obviously the Jazz have to be feeling a lot better with this news and earning a big win on Saturday despite Gobert going down on the first play. If Gobert can't play, Derrick Favors, Jeff Withey and Joe Johnson figure to help out the most.

Joe Johnson    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Joe Johnson hit a four-foot floater at the buzzer to earn a 97-95 Game 1 win over the Clippers on Saturday, finishing with 21 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes. What a win for the Jazz. Rudy Gobert (knee) went down on the very first play of the game, so Johnson had to defend Blake Griffin throughout this game. Plus, Gobert has been a positive offensive presence with his growth as a roll man, so it was Johnson to the rescue on the offensive side for the team's highest scoring output. This was Johnson's eighth buzzer-beating game-winner in the regular season or playoffs over the last 10 seasons, which is the most in the NBA over that span. The seven-time All-Star is 35 years, but Playoff Joe Johnson knows no age limitation.

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.
