JAZZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kings face Jazz looking for second straight road win

SALT LAKE CITY -- Staying above water has become a challenge for the Utah Jazz. Injuries decimated the roster almost to the breaking point this season. For Utah, the latest attack from the injury bug meant that only one regular starter, Rudy Gobert, was not sidelined during the team's 106-99 loss to Golden State on Thursday night. Both Gordon Hayward (finger) and Rodney Hood (hamstring...

The Mack Is Back!

Nothing of huge note happened tonight, so I figured the return of Shelvin Mack to relevance would make a decent headline.  Surprisingly, the Jazz made it a game against the Warriors with Gordon Hayward, George Hill, Rodney Hood, and Derrick Favors all out of the lineup.  Mack definitely did his part, and put up a solid 19 points in 36 minutes.  If he would lay off some of the...

One team is statistically the most injured group in the NBA. And true to form, the Utah Jazz will play on Thursday night without Rodney Hood, George Hill, Derrick Favors and Alec Burks. The other team will be playing on the tail end of a back-to-back. And even if the Golden State Warriors don’t fall victim to fatigue, coach Steve Kerr said on Wednesday he will likely rest some...
