Jonas Jerebko    PF  Jazz



Jerebko will start at power forward for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. With Rudy Gobert going down for the next four-to-six weeks with a bone bruise in his knee, Derrick Favors has shifted over to center, which leaves an opening at the power forward position. The Jazz went smaller with Thabo Sefolosha at the four on Saturday against the Nets, though with a matchup with a bigger Timberwolves' frontcourt on tap, coach Quin Snyder has opted to push Jerebko into the top unit instead. That being said, Snyder mentioned that he didn't want to put too much importance on the starter and there's a decent chance Sefolosha still takes on a sizable workload off the bench. Either way, Jerebko is likely in line to surpass the 11 minutes he played on Saturday.

Jonas Jerebko    F  Jazz



Jonas Jerebko will start at PF on Monday vs. the Wolves. Thabo Sefolosha will come off the bench, but should still get plenty of run and is the better play in fantasy. Jerebko is starting because coach Quin Snyder likes his matchup with Taj Gibson, but he's not worth deploying in most fantasy leagues.

Nate Wolters    PG  Jazz



Wolters was recalled from the G-League on Monday, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports. Wolters, who's on a two-way contract, has been playing in the G-League for the majority of the season thus far. In four games with the Salt Lake City Stars, he's averaged 14.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.3 steals across 35.8 minutes. He'll get a promotion to the big club ahead of Monday's game against the Timberwolves, though he'll likely just be an emergency depth option in the backcourt and shouldn't see the floor in a competitive contest.

Nate Wolters    G  Jazz



Nate Wolters has been recalled from the G-League. Wolters will serve as the third-string point guard on the roster tonight, so he'll only see floor time if the game turns into a blowout or an injury occurs.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz



Derrick Favors said he's "excited" to step into a larger role for the Jazz while Rudy Gobert (knee) is sidelined. "I’m excited about it: It’s a new challenge for me," Favors said. "I get to be a big part of the offense now, and a big part of the defense too. It’s a big responsibility, but I’m ready for it." Favors posted a 24-point, 12-board double-double through 36 minutes as the starting center on Saturday, so he's obviously going to be the primary beneficiary of Gobert's absence. Thabo Sefolosha also moved into the starting five and ripped away five steals, so he's on the radar as a steals specialist.

Joe Johnson    G/F  Jazz



Joe Johnson (right wrist) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Johnson was expected to miss at least two weeks of time, and Tuesday will mark the end of the two-week mark. However, he still hasn't been able to practice with the team, so he probably needs at least another week to get himself in game shape, but we should have a better idea on his timetable after Tuesday. In the meantime, Joe Ingles, Donovan Mitchell and Rodney Hood will continue to pick up the slack in his absence.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz



Gobert is expected to miss four-to-six weeks with a bone bruise in his right knee, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Gobert originally suffered the injury during Friday's game against Miami in a collision with Dion Waiters. A four-to-six week timetable puts a return in mid-to-late December, though that will depend upon how quickly the recovery process goes. With Gobert out, that likely means more minutes at center for the likes of Ekpe Udoh, Derrick Favors and Jonas Jerebko, though the Jazz did experiment with a smaller lineup on Saturday that featured Thabo Sefolosha as a starter at power forward next to Favors at center.

Ricky Rubio    PG  Jazz



Rubio managed 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and four steals across 36 minutes in Saturday's 114-106 win over the Nets. After posting double-digit shot attempts in eight of his first nine games, Rubio has started to settle into more of the facilitator role he's filled so well over his career. The seven-year veteran dished out eight dimes for the second time in the last three games while also logging multiple steals for the third consecutive contest. Rubio is still managing to keep his point totals at decent levels as well, as he's scored in double digits in four of the last five games and also opened November with a season-best 30-point effort. The Spaniard figures to continue filling out the stat sheet moving forward, with the occasional offensive outburst always possible as well.

Donovan Mitchell    SG  Jazz



Mitchell posted 26 points (10-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 26 minutes in Saturday's 114-106 win over the Nets. The rookie logged his second consecutive start at two-guard and provided outstanding returns, posting his third game with more than 20 fantasy points in the process. Mitchell drained a career-high 10 shots overall, with four of those coming in the final minute to secure the victory for the Jazz. The 2017 first-round pick has already proven worthy of his draft position on multiple occasions this season and could well hang on to the starting shooting guard role over Rodney Hood for the time being.

Rodney Hood    SG  Jazz



Hood poured in 19 points (7-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt) and added two rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes in Saturday's 114-106 win over the Nets. Hood has now posted three straight 19-point efforts and equaled his season high with five made three-pointers Saturday. The four-year veteran has ceded starts to rookie Donovan Mitchell the last two games, but he's still seen 35 and 30 minutes, respectively, in those contests. While Mitchell's play would seem to indicate that he'll retain the starting two-guard job for the time being, Hood is certainly capable of offering solid returns with a minutes load that's likely to remain in the high-20s at a minimum.
