Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (knee) will not play against the Clippers on Saturday. What It Means: Favors hasn't played since March 7, but he was able to get some balls up during Friday's practice. The Jazz aren't going to rush to bring him back anytime soon. Joe Johnson has struggled a bit recently, but he remains the superior DFS option to Boris Diaw, who was named the starter when the Jazz last faced the Clippers on March 13. Johnson has struggled with his shot lately, going 8-of-29 (27.6 percent) from the field, including 1-for-9 on 3-point attempts, over the...

Utah Jazz forward/center Boris Diaw will start at power forward and Joe Johnson will move to the bench. What It Means: The Jazz will go with their bigger lineup with Kristaps Porzingis starting for the New York Knicks. Diaw is likely just going to play minutes in the teens, so he's not someone fantasy owners should be counting on tonight. The minute allotment shouldn't change too much here. Our models still project Diaw for just 4.2 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 2.0 assists on 15.5 minutes tonight. Source: Rotoworld.com

Under water for most of the season the Utah Jazz are now a devastating submarine no team wants to face

Under water for most of the season the Utah Jazz are now a devastating submarine no team wants to face

The Utah Jazz have weathered the storm, eye smooth sailing towards the playoffs Remarkably the Utah Jazz are 4th in the Western Conference right now. That’s a team with one new starter (George Hill), and two new rotation guys (Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw) who were added in the off-season to help bolster the emerging stars Gordon Hayward and Rudy Gobert. In the off-season lots of people were quick to point out that this team could be good. But the reality today is that now that they are healthy and playing well . . . well . . . this team could be great. One thing is true, their play of late...

Derrick Favors (knee) ruled out by Utah for Wednesday

Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (knee soreness) will not play on Wednesday versus the Houston Rockets. What It Means: Favors has battled injuries all season, limiting him to just 47 games played and only 24.1 minutes per game. The Jazz don't play again until Saturday, so the team could be playing it safe with their power forward. Boris Diaw and Trey Lyles will likely split Favors minutes on Wednesday. Favors is averaging 9.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks per game, the lowest numbers he has posted in four seasons. Source: Rotoworld.com
