Rodney Hood    SG  Jazz

 

 

Hood collected 15 points (four assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 loss to Chicago. Hood returned from a seven-game absence, playing 25 minutes off the bench. He is likely to continue coming off the bench with Donovan Mitchell playing so well in the starting lineup, but this could even increase Hood's value. He will be the number one option in the second unit and should see close to 30 minutes a night. He holds value in most league formats and should be owned.

Donovan Mitchell    SG  Jazz

 

 

Mitchell finished with 32 points (15-26 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 loss to the Bulls. Mitchell just keeps on rolling, leading the team once again with 32 points. He has now scored in double-figures in nine straight games, and more than 20 points in seven of those games. If Ben Simmons were not in the league, Mitchell would be a firm favorite for Rookie of the year honors. Even with Simmons playing otherworldly, Mitchell is still going to be in the discussion based on his current value.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert scored six points on 3-of-7 shooting on Wednesday, but he added 11 rebounds, one assist and five blocked shots in 26 minutes. The blocks are Rudy's highest since late October, and the boards are his highest since Nov. 10, so there's cause for optimism here. He was coming off a 20-point game on Saturday and it's a matter of time before he puts it all together, so the buy-low window won't be open much longer.

Jonas Jerebko    F  Jazz

 

 

Jonas Jerebko had nine points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes on Wednesday. Jerebko was dealing with an illness but it didn't cost him any time. His role could shrink now that Rodney Hood (ankle) is healthy and Joe Johnson (wrist) is due back soon, especially if the Jazz lean into small lineups, but either way he belongs on the wire.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors hit 1-of-3 shots to score two points on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds and a pair of blocks in 30 minutes vs. the Bulls. Favors didn't get to the free throw line tonight, so he finished with a season-low usage rate of 5.9 percent -- just the third time this season he's been in single-digits. Rudy Gobert was also quiet with six points on 3-of-7 shooting (10.8% usage), as Utah's guards simply dominated the ball offensively. At least Favors' rebounds and blocks prevented it from being a total wash.

Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell lit up the Bulls for a game-high 32 points on 15-of-26 shooting on Wednesday, adding six assists, three rebounds, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in a losing effort. The Jazz opened their five-game road trip with a tough loss in Chicago, and things don't get any easier from here -- next up are the Celtics, Cavaliers, Rockets and Thunder. The good news is that Mitchell has proven impervious to matchups lately -- over the past month he's averaging 21.0 points (45.3% FGs, 85.1% FTs), 2.9 triples, 3.5 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.4 blocks. During that span, he's edging out Jayson Tatum as the most valuable rookie in fantasy.

Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks came off the bench on Wednesday for 13 points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes of action. Burks made 6-of-13 shots with one 3-pointer and his 25 minutes were in line with his recent workload. That's a very positive sign, since Rodney Hood (ankle) was back in action tonight, and Burks' owners should hang onto him in the hopes that he can hold onto 24+ minutes per game.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood (left ankle) returned on Wednesday with 15 points (5-of-12 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three 3-pointers, four assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench. Hood hadn't played since Nov. 25, a span of seven games, and the Jazz wisely had him on a minute-limit tonight. That should slowly increase over Utah's next few games, but he's unlikely to get huge playing time even at full strength -- after all, he came in averaging just 28.3 minutes per game this season. He picked up right where he left off tonight, and it can't hurt to double-check that he's not on any waiver wires.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio had 14 points, six rebounds and four assists vs. the Bulls on Wednesday, connecting on 6-of-12 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws in 27 minutes. It was Rubio's highest-scoring game in December, which speaks volumes about his reduced offensive role next to rookie phenom Donovan Mitchell. Raul Neto (concussion) was out tonight and it sounds like he's still in the concussion protocol, since we've yet to hear about him practicing, so Rubio could earn a few extra minutes if Neto misses more time.

Jonas Jerebko    F  Jazz

 

 

Jonas Jerebko (illness) is available for Wednesday against the Bulls. He was called probable on Tuesday, but he's apparently feeling better. Joe Johnson (wrist) is going to miss at least one more game, so Jerebko figures to be in the rotation.
