Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood (knee) will return to the starting lineup on Friday versus the Milwaukee Bucks. What It Means: Hood has sat out the last seven games with a knee injury, but he looks ready to return after having over three weeks off. The Nets will run him with the first unit right away, sending Joe Ingles back to the bench. Joe Johnson will lose some minutes as well with Hood back. Hood is projected for 19.6 fantasy points on Friday in 25.5 minutes. He is averaging 13.7 points and 3.6 rebounds per game with a -0.6 nERD rating this season. Source:...

Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks: Who has the edge

Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks: Who has the edge

The Jazz looked flat in their last few games before the break. Can they bounce back against the Greek Freak and the Bucks? Well, here we are. No trades, no FA signings. Typical Jazzy trade deadline season, really. Many people argued that the team needed a shakeup, and I guess time will tell. Just remember that Dennis Lindsey made some pretty fantastic moves last summer—bringing in Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and George Hill—and is perfectly capable of getting things done that need to be done. Oh, and thank your lucky stars that Vivek Ranadive and Vlade Divac aren’t running the team....

Utah Jazz: Sluggish Joe Johnson Drops a Major Doozy

Utah's Rodney Hood has no structural damage in knee

Utah Jazz guard/forward Rodney Hood's MRI results showed no structural damage and he was diagnosed with a hyperextended knee. What It Means: This is obviously better than the alternative, but Hood remains unlikely to play on Saturday against the Charlotte Hornets. He already missed five games this month with a bone bruise to his right knee, so hopefully this won't cost him too much time. Joe Ingles will be the primary beneficiary while Alec Burks and Joe Johnson also see more opportunity. Hood is averaging 13.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 2.1 3-pointers in 28.6...

Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks Overtone: Two underdogs getting over the hump

Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks Overtone: Two underdogs getting over the hump

These humps, these humps, these small market championship lumps In a lot of ways, the Jazz and Bucks are a mirror image of each other. Two teams that have to overcome a small market with stigmas that keep free agents from wanting to sign in their respective cities. At least that’s how it used to be. The Bucks made waves in 2015 when they were able to sign Greg Monroe to a max contract in free agency. It became a big story that Monroe chose Milwaukee over New York and was one of the bigger signs that the NBA might be changing. Recently the Jazz signed Joe Johnson in free agency, surprising...

Jazz shootaround: Joe Johnson says Gordon Hayward's all-star experience can take his game 'to a whole other level'

Joe Johnson happily congratulated Gordon Hayward this week on his first all-star selection — and the veteran forward believes more could be on the way. “It’s a great feeling,” said Johnson, himself a seven-time all-star. “It helps develop a sense of confidence. Then just being around a bunch of all-star caliber guys, it can take your game to a whole other level. Then you start to see yourself in that light and, next thing you know, the next three, four, five years you’ve been selected and now yo...
