With Burks and Hood down, Ingles takes on more importance

Joe Ingles has been cut twice by the Golden State Warriors. He’s been let go by the Los Angeles Clippers. They say the ability to stick in the NBA requires time. It requires patience, being in the right situation at the right time and maybe even a little luck. All of this applies to Joe Ingles, the “veteran” rookie of the Utah Jazz. With Alec Burks hurt for the season and Rodney Hood down for the immediate future, Joe Ingles is the man at shooting guard, the proverbial “next man up”. He’s ...

Utah Jazz: Alec Burks stays involved despite season-ending injury

The public address announcer had finished belting out the names of the players in the Utah Jazz starting lineup and the lights were starting to go up in the arena Friday night when Alec Burks came walking out of his team’s locker room. The 23-year-old would have loved to hear his name among those called before tipoff against the Los Angeles Lakers, but that won’t happen again this season for the Jazz’s young shooting guard. “It’s tough,” Burks said. “There’s a team out there fighting [Friday] an...

Jazz announce signing of Elijah Millsap

The Jazz have called up Elijah Millsap of the Bakersfield Jam. The Jazz have announced the signing of Elijah Millsap from the NBA DLeague's Bakersfield Jam to a ten-day deal. Today is the first day that NBA team's can sign players to a ten-day contract.  Millsap will wear number 13 (RIP Memo) and I would assume would be available for tonight's game against the Pacers. Injuries to wings Alec Burks and Rodney Hood necessitated a move.  To make room for Millsap, the Jazz had to release Toure' Murry earlier. This will be Millsap's first official action with an NBA club as he's been cut prior...

Utah Jazz: Toure' Murry waived to clear roster spot

Toure’ Murry finally got into the books Saturday night. A day later, he’s off of the roster. The Utah Jazz on Sunday waived the second-year combo guard, clearing a roster spot that sources say will be used to bring guard Elijah Millsap up from the D-League. With injuries to Alec Burks, Rodney Hood and Patrick Christopher, the Jazz have been in search of help at the wing and Murry apparently was not in the team’s plans going forward. Millsap, a 6-foot-5 wing player, is the brother of former Jazzm...

Utah Jazz: Rodney Hood ruled out tonight against the Hawks

It took Patrick Christopher years to reach his dream of playing in the NBA. After finally making his NBA debut last week against Philadelphia, it’s taken him three games to find his way into the starting lineup. Injuries have beset the Utah Jazz’s shooting guards. First, Alec Burks was lost to the year with a shoulder injury. And on Friday, rookie Rodney Hood’s sore heel kept him out of action. Even about 90 minutes before tipoff, Jazz coach Quin Snyder wasn’t sure who would get the nod in Hood’...

Utah Jazz: With Alec Burks out, rookies get chance to shine

Before the season had started, Rodney Hood was signing an autograph for a young fan who had a question for the Utah Jazz rookie a question. “Are you going to start?” the boy asked. “Not this year,” Hood replied. My, how plans do change. With the announcement this week that shooting guard Alec Burks will have season-ending shoulder surgery, there was sadness and disappointment around the Jazz locker room. But there is also opportunity. Hood, the 23rd overall pick in June, has suddenly been thrust...

Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey discusses Alec Burks' season-ending shoulder surgery

On Dec. 1, Jazz shooting guar Alec Burks landed hard on the floor at EnergySolutions Arena after being fouled hard by Denver’s Arron Afflalo. The Nugget guard would be ejected from the game and later fined $15,000 for swiping Burks across the head. Burks, however, would get the worst of it. The fall aggravated a lingering shoulder issue for the 23-year-old Jazzman. Burks would go on to miss two games as he collected medical opinions from four different doctors. On Dec. 7, Burks was cleared to re...

What do the Utah Jazz do without Alec Burks? The Downbeat #1511

How Alec Burks' season-ending surgery affects the Jazz roster. Also: Vines, silence, FanPosts, and goodbye to 2014. Last night's comeback win over Minnesota was slightly overshadowed by the news that broke just before the game, that Alec Burks would have season-ending surgery on his injured shoulder. (Thanks again, Aaron Afflalo!) It's a huge blow for both the Jazz, who invested so much and showed such confidence in Burks this offseason, and for Alec himself, who struggled in a starting role this year even when not injured (though he played through noticeable pain in several...
