Jazz rule out Rodney Hood (knee) for rest of game

Utah Jazz shooting guard Rodney Hood will not return to Wednesday's game due to right knee soreness. What It Means: His right knee has been a source of trouble all season, so there's a good chance Utah will hold him out of Thursday's game even if he's feeling better. Owners should check for updates after shootaround. If he does sit out, expect Joe Ingles, Alec Burks and Dante Exum to absorb most of his playing time. Hood finishes scoreless with four rebounds in nine first-half minutes. He contributed -12.72 nERD while on the court -- worst among Jazz...

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers: Five things to watch

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers: Five things to watch

Banged up Jazz taking on the not-banged up Clippers After a disappointing loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday, the Utah Jazz (41-25) don’t get time to dwell on their shortcomings. I feel most fans were relatively forgiving considering Rudy Gobert was a late scratch from the lineup. But still, Utah’s top scorers were Dante Exum and Alec Burks. That should never happen (especially the first one). They could have at least put up a fight. Still, life in the NBA goes on. And that means the Jazz are back to defending their fourth seed in the West. This time they’ll be facing the team...

Utah Jazz: Dante Exum’s Stellar Play Creates A Problem For Front Office

Dante Exum is coming off a career-high 22 points in Saturday’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. This performance has exemplified his stellar play of late and if this continues, it could force Utah Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey to make big moves this offseason.

The shorthanded Utah Jazz lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder despite impressive performances from Dante Exum and Alec Burks. The Oklahoma City Thunder continued their impressive shooting against the Utah Jazz this season, and ended up walking away with a 112-104 victory over Utah on Saturday.

Dante Exum is going to be okay. Even if all he does is help this team win a few championships.

Dante Exum is going to be okay. Even if all he does is help this team win a few championships.

We take a look at the young man, his journey, his struggles, and a veteran comparison you didn’t even think of before. I remember three Junes ago when the Utah Jazz drafted Dante Exum. I was there, covering the NBA Draft for SB Nation (poorly, which is a good explanation for why it was my second and last time doing it). It was the best result we fans could have hoped for. The best result we could have hoped for did not translate into the best possible result on the court, though. Today we have a player coming off of a serious surgery trying to play catch-up by going slowly. And none of...

George Hill (toe) will not play for Jazz against Rockets

Utah Jazz point guard George Hill (toe) will not play against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. What It Means: Hill's nagging toe injury won't go away and it's pretty clear he's playing through it based on some limping during games. With him out, it should be Dante Exum getting another start, but he hasn't played well and saw just 25 minutes on Monday. Alec Burks could be an interesting option to get more length and offense against up-tempo Rockets. We peg Exum for 9.1 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.5 assists on 26.7 minutes -- this would work for 15.6 FanDuel points. Our models...

Jazz list George Hill (toe) questionable to play on Wednesday

Utah Jazz point guard George Hill (toe soreness, rest) is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Houston Rockets. What It Means: Hill was given the day off on Monday to rest his bothersome toe, so it is a bit worrisome that he is listed on the injury report for Wednesday. He will likely come down to a game-time decision. Dante Exum will start if Hill is unable to give it a go. Hill has played only 38 of Utah's 64 games this season, averaging a career-best 17.6 points on 47.9% shooting. Source: Rotoworld.com

Jazz give starting nod to Dante Exum for contest with New Orleans

Utah Jazz point guard Dante Exum is starting at point guard on Monday versus the New Orleans Pelicans. What It Means: Exum should be in for a busy night with George Hill (toe) and Shelvin Mack (ankle) both ruled out. Despite the opportunity, he doesn't carry much streaming or DFS appeal with averages of 7.4 points, 1.8 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game in 17 starts this season. Exum comes with a minimum $3,500 price tag on FanDuel Monday night, but our models only project him for 14.8 fantasy points in 23.9 minutes of action. Source: Rotoworld.com

Jazz will be without George Hill, Shelvin Mack, and Joe Johnson on Monday

Utah Jazz guards George Hill (toe soreness, rest), Joe Johnson (groin), and Shelvin Mack (ankle) have all been ruled out for Monday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. What It Means: With Monday being the second game of a back-to-back, the Jazz are playing it safe by resting Hill and his bothersome toe. He should be good to go on Wednesday. Utah will be forced to start Dante Exum at the point and give him a substantial share of minutes with both Hill and Mack out. Joe Ingles will also see an uptick in minutes off the bench in Johnson's place. In the 18 games Exum has...

Speed Kills: Utah Jazz’s Dante Exum Has Shown Signs of Brilliance

Dante Exum, the former number five overall pick in 2014, has shown a lot of improvement in his third season. To me, he has shown signs of stardom.
