Utah Jazz point/shooting guard Donovan Mitchell (concussion) will miss Friday's contest against Detroit as he remains in the league's concussion protocol. Joe Ingles stepped into the starting five Wednesday in place of Mitchell, while Bojan Bogdanovic led the team in scoring (29 points) and Royce O'Neale snagged 15 boards to go along with five assists -- all three should see significant DFS interest so long as Mitchell is unavailable. Head coach Quin Snyder chose to keep the rotation tight, which also bodes well for Jordan Clarkson, who is likely to take on a larger scoring role. Fantasy managers can anticipate Mitchell remaining sidelined until a further update is provided.
Utah Jazz point/shooting guard Donovan Mitchell (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. Houston after having been placed in the league's concussion protocol Tuesday. The blow in question reportedly happened just prior to halftime of the team's loss to the Lakers on Monday, although Mitchell finished the outing, albeit shooting 6-for-19 overall, including 0-for-8 from behind the arc. Mitchell's absence is likely to change the outlook of nearly everything offensively for Utah, with Joe Ingles the likeliest candidate to bump into the starting five. Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley are set to take on larger offensive roles for as long as Mitchell remains in the protocol.
Utah Jazz point/shooting guard Donovan Mitchell (back) and small forward Bojan Bogdanovic (finger) have been cleared to get back into action for Saturday's game vs. the Pacers. Mitchell and Bogdanovic were a part of the wholesale absences that forced the Jazz roster to take on a different look Friday; their return zaps Elijah Hughes, Jared Butler, and others of their previous DFS upside. Mitchell missed just one game due to the back ailment and returns to face an Indiana defense that he dropped 26 points against back on Nov. 11. Bogdanovic set new season highs with 36 points and 13 rebounds Wednesday, although he faces a tough matchup vs. a Pacers defense that allows the fewest three-point makes (10.5) per game in the league.
The Utah Jazz will be massively shorthanded for Friday's contest vs. the Raptors, with the starting backcourt of Donovan Mitchell (back) and Mike Conley (rest) among those unavailable. With other key contributors such as Rudy Gobert (health and safety protocols), Bojan Bogdanovic (finger), Jordan Clarkson (back) and Royce O'Neale (knee) also sidelined, any healthy member of the Jazz stands to see enormous DFS upside. Jared Butler should see all the minutes and offensive duties that he can handle, while Eric Paschall and Hassan Whiteside also should step into higher usage. Conley should be back in action Saturday against Indiana, although fantasy managers will want to check back for an update on Mitchell.
