Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks (knee) had a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection to his left knee on Thursday and he will not play in Game 3 on Friday. He is basically out indefinitely. Burks has not been in the rotation and didn't really play much this season unless George Hill, Rodney Hood or Gordon Hayward missed time.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert (left knee) is out for Game 3 against the Clippers on Friday. The Jazz were lucky to get a 1-1 split in L.A. for the first two games, and a lot of it has to do with Derrick Favors being able to log 32.5 minutes per game. Besides Favors at the five, it's been Jeff Withey and even Boris Diaw picking up some extra minutes. Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles have also stepped up as the Jazz go with more small-ball fours. Gobert should be considered doubtful for Game 4 on Sunday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: One of the most notable changes in Utah’s dynamic following Gobert’s injury has been Joe Johnson’s spike in usage; it’s climbed 7.8% to 27.4% according to our CourtIQ tool. He’s averaged 30.1 minutes per game he’s taken at least 14 shots in both contests, well above his average of 8.0 FGAs. With Gobert still sidelined, he’ll be a solid value option on the short slate.

Joe Ingles    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Joe Ingles looked great in another start at shooting guard, scoring nine points with six rebounds, three assists, three steals and two triples in 33 minutes. He's arguably one of the most underrated players in the NBA and has been a huge contributor to the Jazz all season. Ingles finished 3-of-5 from the field and his ability to handle the ball in the first unit takes a lot of pressure off George Hill and Gordon Hayward. Ingles had eight points, two rebounds, two assists, one block, two steals and one triple in Game 1, and it helps that he has some extra motivation in this matchup -- he was waived by the Clippers back in 2014. The restricted free agent can expect a significant raise this summer.

Gordon Hayward    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points in Tuesday's 99-91 Game 2 loss to the Clippers. The series is all tied up at one win apiece, but it will shift to Utah for Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Sunday. Hayward is getting a lot of attention from the Clippers' best perimeter defender in Luc Mbah a Moute, and while he only shot 5-of-15 from the field, he hit all seven of his free throws with six rebounds, two assists and three triples in 39 minutes. He should flirt with 40+ minutes the rest of the way. George Hill added 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two triples, while Joe Johnson notched 13 points with one rebound, one assist and one steal.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors started at center in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Clippers, finishing with 13 points, seven rebounds and one block in 33 minutes. Playing Favors at less than 100 percent for 33 minutes isn't ideal, but even though he was absolutely exhausted, he put in a pretty good shift tonight just like he did in Game 1. He finished 5-of-7 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line, and with Rudy Gobert's (knee) timetable to return still up in the air, the Favors should see 30+ minutes as long as his troublesome knee holds up.

Raul Neto    G  Jazz

 

 

Raul Neto (ankle) is available for Game 2 vs. the Clippers on Tuesday. Neto will join the active list and Alec Burks will be inactive. At best, Neto will see a handful of minutes off the bench and can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert (left knee) was seen walking without a limp on Tuesday. To be clear, Gobert will still miss Tuesday's Game 2 against the Clippers, and head coach Quin Snyder said he was hopeful to have him back "in a week or two," so Friday's Game 3 also seems a bit unlikely. Walking without a limp obviously isn't close to the sort of movement required to play in an NBA game, but at least he appears to be progressing in the right direction. Derrick Favors will start in Game 2, with Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey seeing an uptick in minutes.
