  • <freeform> Denver • I’m at DIA, waiting to fly back to Salt Lake City and trying not to spill guacamole on my laptop keyboard, so as far as I’m concerned the Jazz just played Game 1 of a six-game road trip. After tonight’s game against the Bucks, the Jazz will leave Monday for games at Memphis, Boston, Philly and Brooklyn, the last major road swing of the year. The... read more...

  • Guess those number one seeds have a little substance to go with those gaudy regular season records. Heading into Monday night, the NBA playoff narrative was simple: The Atlanta Hawks and the Golden State Warriors were in trouble. They were down 2-1 in their respective series’ to the Washington Wizards and the Memphis Grizzlies, respectively. They were on the road. They were facing disas... read more...

  • A shoulder injury could keep Gordon Hayward out of action when the Utah Jazz host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night. Hayward has a Grade 1 left acromioclavicular (AC) sprain and is officially listed as questionable for the contest, the Jazz announced Sunday. Hayward has been one of the Jazz’s iron men this season, missing just one game so far (due to a strained back). He’s p... read more...

  • Rough and rugged, but big and skilled at the same time. With some seasoning, some tutelage, this could describe Arizona forward Stanley Johnson almost perfectly. The projected lottery pick has fans among teams in the top 10 because of those attributes. Johnson met with the Utah Jazz on Friday, one of the many prospects to do so this week. Johnson played one season at Arizona, was one o... read more...

  • There will be no Dirk Nowitzki tonight to play against the Utah Jazz. There will be no Monta Ellis. There will be Tyson Chandler. Those three - the core of the Dallas Mavericks - will not be around tonight to face the Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena. Heck, they aren’t even in Salt Lake City with the team. They flew back home last night. Welcome to the end of the season, where teams rest... read more...

  • One of the things the Utah Jazz want to do this offseason is improve the overall shooting through the roster. Versatility helps as well. UNLV forward Christian Wood met with the Jazz during the Draft Combine this week. He’s a 6-foot-11 power forward with the ability to play small forward. His height, his length and athleticism complement his ability to shoot the ball. Wood is an earl... read more...

  • Bryce Cotton just received an honor he’d probably prefer to never get again. The Utah Jazz point guard on Wednesday was named to the All-NBA D-League second team as well as the developmental league’s All-Rookie first team. Cotton’s averages of 22.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists with the Austin Spurs were impressive enough. But the highlight of season was, of course, the jump... read more...

  • Minneapolis • Derrick Favors finished Monday morning’s shootaround on the court at Target Center, participating in a team shooting competition. Whether the Jazz power forward will be back on that court tonight remains to be seen. Favors has officially been listed as questionable to play in tonight’s game against the Timberwolves. Back spasms limited him last week in Denver and kept ... read more...

  • Rudy Gobert - as outwardly truthful a person as you will find on the Utah Jazz roster - made his feelings known on twitter, following Utah’s 92-89 loss to the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday night. “Im gonna stay away from that fine and get off twitter for the night,” is what Gobert wrote on social media. It was a clever and thoughtful way for Gobert to make his feelings know... read more...

  • By Darnell MayberryWhen the Thunder selected Mitch McGary with the 21st overall pick in last year’s draft, few knew who he was or what he could be. But even in an injury-plagued first season, McGary quickly made a name for himself. The bruising power forw... read more...

  • This past week, the Portland Trailblazers lost one of their great former players, when Jerome Kersey suddenly passed away. On Thursday, the NBA lost a piece of its history when Earl Lloyd died at the age of 86. Lloyd was the first African-American player in league history, making his breakthrough in 1950, when he was 22 years old. He was an imposing figure, 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds. He w... read more...
