Gordon Hayward    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Gordon Hayward's 25 points weren't enough in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors as the Jazz were swept in the second round of the playoffs. Hayward finished 8-of-21 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line, adding five rebounds, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes. Hayward was a top-35 player in standard fantasy leagues in 2016-17, averaging 22.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.1 treys on 46.8 percent shooting. Hayward is 27 years old and is in the prime of his career, but his fantasy value in 2017-18 hinges on where he lands this summer -- he's fully expected to opt out of his $16.7 million player option in order to become a free agent. A return to Utah seems likely, though.

Dante Exum    G  Jazz

 

 

Dante Exum scored a playoff career-high 15 points in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors. George Hill (toe) missed his third game in a row and Exum played arguably his best game of the season, starting the second half in place of Joe Ingles and hitting 5-of-14 shots with three boards, two assists, one steal and one triple in 32 minutes. Exum averaged just 6.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.7 triples in 18.6 minutes per game during the regular season, but could be looking at a larger role in 2017-18 with George Hill and Shelvin Mack hitting free agency. Exum doesn't have great upside in fantasy and his defense is his bread and butter, but we'll be keeping an eye on his development this summer.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood has been diagnosed with a right knee sprain and will not return to Monday's Game 4 vs. the Warriors, finishing with two points, two boards and one assist in 14 minutes. The Jazz ruled him out after just a couple minutes in real time after he went back to the locker room. This is the same knee that has bothered Hood all season and the Jazz will likely run some additional tests on him -- he's expected to have an MRI, but the injury is not believed to be more serious than a sprain according to Jazz reporter Tony Jones. With the Jazz about to be swept on their home floor, Hood will have plenty of time to rest up in the offseason. He regressed in his third season, averaging 12.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.9 3-pointers on 40.8 percent shooting. He also appeared in just 59 regular-season games.

Rodney Hood (knee) left Monday's Game 4 vs. the Warriors in the fourth quarter and went back to the locker room. He took a hard fall and was grabbing his leg behind his knee, and while he was able to shoot his free throws, he had a significant limp and was visibly frustrated -- Jazz reporters could hear him cursing in the tunnel on his way to the back. Knee injuries have been the story of his season, so hopefully it's nothing serious. We'll have an update shortly.

George Hill    G  Jazz

 

 

George Hill (toe) won't play in Game 4 vs. the Warriors on Monday according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. Coach Quin Snyder recently talked about how Hill wouldn't be effective if he was less than 100 percent in this series, so the writing was on the wall. With Hill out for the third straight game, Shelvin Mack will likely draw another start and will try to help the Jazz avoid a sweep on their home court. In his last two starts, Mack averaged 12.5 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 2.0 triples.

George Hill    G  Jazz

 

 

Jazz coach Quin Snyder said it made sense to hold George Hill out for Games 2 and 3 because his toe injury "greatly impacts" his "effectiveness on the floor." "It's really just more a question of his effectiveness and his toe," Snyder said. "He's missed games for this over the course of the season. And what happens is as he's playing, there are situations in the game that happen where he lands on it and pushes off and it just aggravates it. It aggravates it to a point where he's just not able to be effective." Hill is currently considered questionable for Game 4 on Monday, though Snyder was non-commital when asked about his status. If he's out again, expect Shelvin Mack to benefit the most with Dante Exum and Raul Neto fighting for scraps off the bench.
