News: Gobert moved back to the bench with Derrick Favors returning, and scored six points (3-4 FG) with 11 rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes Saturday.
Impact: This highlights some of the concern with Gobert in that when Favors and Enes Kanter are both playing, his minutes may not be ideal. He is still averaging 11.5 rebounds in his last four games, but Saturday was the first game since December 29th that he has failed to register a block. Gobert still should be owned in all leagues.
News: Ingles set career highs for points with 16 (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and three-pointers with four, adding one rebound, five assists and one steal in 30 minutes Saturday.
Impact: It was Ingles' first double-digit scoring game in his last five, but his minutes have been consistent, and have topped 30 in his last two games. With Rodney Hood (foot) out until at least the All-Star break, Ingles appears locked into the starting shooting guard role and is averaging 7.2 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 2.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.5 steals in his last six games. He's not a must-own player by any means, but in deeper leagues, he should start getting scooped up.
News: Millsap has agreed to a three-year contract with the Jazz, Shams Charania of RealGM.com reports.
Impact: Millsap has played in nine games for the Jazz this season while averaging 20.7 minutes per contest. He essentially has filled in for Alec Burks (shoulder) who is out for the rest of the season. The agreed upon contract guarantees that Millsap will be in Utah for the rest of this season while there's a team option on each of the remaining two years.
News: Burke will continue coming off the bench against the Nets on Saturday, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Impact: Burke lost his spot in the starting lineup to rookie Dante Exum for the being while coach Quin Snyder tinkers with his rotations. This certainly means that Burke's value will take a small dip, although Snyder stated Saturday that he'll continue to play around with the lineups throughout the season, leaving the door open for Burke to regain his spot as a starter at some point in the future.
News: Gobert will move back to the bench against the Nets on Saturday, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Impact: Gobert has enjoyed a few stints in the starting lineup with injuries in Utah over the course of January, although both Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter are now healthy and with the team. This means that Gobert will likely slot back into a reserve role behind those players moving forward. Even in limited minutes, however, the second-year player can provide above average rebounding and block totals.
News: Exum will make his second straight start against the Nets on Saturday, Jazz announcer David Locke reports.
Impact: Exum's move into the starting lineup means that Trey Burke will continue coming off the bench as coach Quin Snyder is less concerned about individual players and more concerned about effective lineups as a whole. Whatever the reason, Exum's value is trending upward while Burke's value is taking a dive at this point in the season, especially after Exum put up 15 points (5-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt) during his start against Milwaukee on Thursday. However, Snyder said that he will continue to tinker with his starting lineups for the rest of the season.
News: Favors (personal) is expected to play against the Nets on Saturday, the New York Post reports.
Impact: Favors missed Thursday's game in Milwaukee for a personal reason but should assume his normal role for the Jazz on Saturday. His reinsertion into the lineup will likely cause a decrease in the amount of playing time that Rudy Gobert saw in Favors' absence.
