Utah Jazz Roster

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He is currently feeling under the weather and was unable to go through shootaround on Wednesday. The Jazz are likely going to wait until warm ups before deciding whether or not Gobert is going to play. Ed Davis and Tony Bradley could be looking at increased playing time if Gobert is unable to play. Neither player would be worth using as a DFS option or streaming choice.
Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert had a night to forget on Monday when he managed to tally just six points with four rebounds before getting ejected in the nine-point loss to the Raptors. Gobert managed to add some solid defensive numbers to somewhat salvage his off night with two steals and a block. Gobert received an elbow from OG Anunoby and it let to the two getting a bit tangled up before they were both sent to the locker room for the night. Gobert's scoring has taken a slight dip as of late, but the big man has been averaging 2.8 blocks a night over his last six games.
Utah Jazz shooting guard/small forward Joe Ingles played a heavy 32 minutes on Monday and made the most of his time in the 101-92 loss to the Raptors. Ingles was efficient as he made eight of 12 shots en route to 20 points and he added five rebounds with six assists and two steals while drilling four threes. Ingles has had his ups and downs this season and the 20 points were the most the Aussie has scored since Jan. 14. He is still worth owning in category leagues with his ability to provide assists (which is rare on most waiver wires) to go along with threes and steals.
Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson came off the bench and supplied 14 points, one rebound, one assist, and two steals in 25 minutes of play during the 111-105 win over the Pistons on Saturday. The former Cavalier has been efficient in Utah, averaging 15.8 points as the third leading scorer on the team. In fact, he has only scored in single digits twice since Feb. 1. The 27-year-old has consistently accumulated decent stats on his new squad, which proves he can be trusted in fantasy; however, he faces a stiff test on Monday in a stingy Raptors defense.
Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert finished Saturday's 111-105 win over the Pistons with 10 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and three steals in 35 minutes. With Detroit lacking a true center, the 27-year-old capitalized on the mismatches and filled the stat sheet. Though you cannot expect extremely high point totals from the big man, he is dependable in fantasy because of his rebounding prowess. Gobert averages 15.3 points and 13.9 rebounds per game and has two double-doubles in the past four games. The sixth-year player is a good option against the Raptors on Monday, as they rank among the middle in defensive rebounds allowed.
