  • Alec Burks stepped out of the shower, got dressed and enjoyed a good-natured joke with Enes Kanter along the way. Trey Burke, Jeremy Evans and Derrick Favors each found time to smile and chat with their teammates, following a 93-84 Utah Jazz loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday night. It seems simple, but this group of players have decided to keep it positive in the lockerroom. “We k... read more...

  • Like Friday night in the second half against the Miami Heat, the Utah Jazz will be shorthanded, and missing one of their most important players. Derrick Favors has been ruled out of Sunday’s matchup against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center, his sprained ankle not responding well enough to make a go of it against the Wizards. This is problematic for the Jazz. Not only will the... read more...

  • Derrick Favors sat courtside at Smooth King Center, a pair of scissors in hand, waiting to cut the thick roll of tape from the right ankle he sprained last Friday at home against the Miami Heat. Utah’s starting center participated in shootaround on Tuesday morning. He went through all the rigorous running and cutting required to be effective in a basketball game. He appears to have the r... read more...

  • It was a vicious dunk, and Gordon Hayward never stood a chance against it. In the third quarter of Wednesday night’s Jazz game in Cleveland, LeBron James took an outlet pass from Kevin Love, rose up and slammed home a dunk as Hayward tried futilely to contest it from behind. Then, the King stared for a moment at the Jazz swingman before getting back to the business of clobbering Utah. &a... read more...

  • Oklahoma City • The Jazz may have lost, but Trevor Booker won the Internet’s heart tonight. If you haven’t yet heard about his ridiculous, over-the-head circus shot, here it is. <freeform> <iframe class=”vine-embed” src=”https://vine.co/v/OpUwTZKbWlg/embed/simple” width=”100%” height=”600” frameborder=”0”></iframe><... read more...

  • Alec Burks’ shoulder has been a source of some concern since even before he became a member of the Utah Jazz in June 2011. In a pre-draft workout with the Milwaukee Bucks, Burks was injured and it caused him to miss a scheduled workout with Charlotte. The Jazz were aware of an issue when they took Burks with the 12th overall pick that summer and so they quickly went to work on him. “We... read more...

  • On Dec. 1, Jazz shooting guard Alec Burks landed hard on the floor at EnergySolutions Arena after being fouled hard by Denver’s Arron Afflalo. The Nugget guard would be ejected from the game and later fined $15,000 for swiping Burks across the head. Burks, however, would get the worst of it. The fall aggravated a lingering shoulder issue for the 23-year-old Jazzman. Burks would go on to ... read more...

  • The Golden State Warriors are one of the most intriguing stories of the NBA season so far. We knew they would be good, heading into the year. They were a sixth seed last season. They were vastly improved defensively under Mark Jackson. They gave the Los Angeles Clippers all they wanted in the first round of the playoffs. In other words, they were like many recent Golden State teams that... read more...

  • In the moments following Utah’s 89-69 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, Jazz coach Quin Snyder did his very best to diffuse potential controversy. “There are no longterm implications here,” Snyder said. “We just thought Rudy could give us a spark.” Snyder was referring to his second year center Rudy Gobert, and his fourth year center Enes Kanter. Gobert - on Sunday night - ... read more...

  • Toure’ Murry finally got into the books Saturday night. A day later, he’s off of the roster. The Utah Jazz on Sunday waived the second-year combo guard, clearing a roster spot that sources say will be used to bring guard Elijah Millsap up from the D-League. With injuries to Alec Burks, Rodney Hood and Patrick Christopher, the Jazz have been in search of help at the wing and Murry appar... read more...

  • Elliot Williams’ run with the Utah Jazz has come to an end, according to Yahoo! Sports. The guard’s second 10-day contract is set to expire and, Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported late Monday, the Jazz will not be keeping Williams beyond that. The news probably comes as little surprise. Williams averaged 8.4 minutes over five appearances since he joined the Jazz.But, even with Rodn... read more...

  • Los Angeles • A tight game. On the road. Against a Western Conference power. A week earlier, the Jazz were able to pull out a big win in that situation. Last night against the Clippers, however, a young Utah team couldn’t get it done. There are dozens of variables of course, but it’s hard to ignore one of the major differences between those two games: Alec Burks. “I think what heâ€... read more...
