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...

Boris Diaw starting, Joe Johnson to bench for Jazz Wednesday

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

Jazz going small Thursday, starting Joe Ingles, Joe Johnson

Utah Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles and guard/forward Joe Johnson are both starting against the Cleveland Cavaliers. What It Means: They will join George Hill, Gordon Hayward and Rudy Gobert in the first unit as Utah goes small with Rodney Hood (knee) and Derrick Favors (knee) both unavailable. Ingles is averaging 9.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.1 3-pointers per game in 18 starts this season, making him a slightly better fantasy play than Johnson. Ingles costs $4,000 on FanDuel and our models believe he'll score 18.5 fantasy points (FP) versus the...

Joe Johnson starting as Jazz face off with Detroit

Utah Jazz guard/forward Joe Johnson will start against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. What It Means: The Jazz are opting to go with more of a small-ball approach by utilizing Gordon Hayward more at the four against Tobias Harris. Johnson makes for a decent play with the extra opportunity and comes at a cost of only $3,600 on FanDuel. numberFire's algorithms believe Johnson will record 9.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.8 3-pointers in 24.7 minutes on Wednesday night.

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...

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...

Joe Johnson (groin) ruled out for Friday in Utah

Utah Jazz guard/forward Joe Johnson (groin) is out for Friday night against the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: While the official word is a groin injury, this could also be just a maintenance day for the veteran against the lowly Nets. However, the news came after roster lock, so those with Joe Ingles in their lineups because of the absence of Rodney Hood could get an extra bump tonight without Johnson as well. Our models projects Ingles for 8.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 steals over 25.8 minutes on Friday. Source: Rotoworld.com
