  • It came to them at halftime. They aren’t good enough to don a uniform and expect a win. They aren’t good enough to simply show up. Quin Snyder never for once dreamed he would have to address a sense of superiority with this specfic Jazz team. But there they were, after two consecutive wins, playing the Boston Celtics like wins were pre-ordained. What happened, a 99-90 loss, was predic... read more...

  • Chicago • The Utah Jazz filled their open roster spot by signing guard Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract Wednesday, a day after waiving the injured Patrick Christopher. Williams, a 6-foot-5 guard who was averaging 21.3 points and 7.7 assists a game for the D-League Santa Cruz Warriors, was en route to Chicago on Wednesday morning and was expected to join up with the team ahead of the ... read more...

  • Memphis • The chatter was noticeable. There was Enes Kanter tapping Jeremy Evans on the elbow whenever he tried to shoot a jumper. There was Trey Burke having an animated conversation with Rodney Hood. There was laughter, there were jokes being thrown around like chest passes. Clearly, this was a loose Jazz team at a shootaround that preceded Monday’s game here against the Grizzlies â€... 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...

  • Danté Exum will hear his name called tonight when the Utah Jazz’s starting lineup is announced at EnergySolutions Arena. The rookie point guard will stand up from his spot on the bench, and then jog through a cloud of smoke and neon lights. After that, his coach wants him to run. One of the issues at the heart of Jazz coach Quin Snyder’s surprise change to his starting lineup Thursday... read more...

  • Alec Burks’ left shoulder could keep him out of the Utah Jazz’s starting lineup tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers. The shooting guard did not participate in the team’s morning shootaround because of soreness and is officially listed as doubtful to play tonight, team officials said. “You’re always concerned when one of your guys is not feeling great, 100 percent,” Jazz coac... read more...

  • Like all opponents of LeBron James, the Utah Jazz enter Wednesday’s matchup trying to figure out a way to stop one of the best basketball player’s on Earth. And like most opponents of LeBron James, the Jazz are largely drawing a blank on how to completely stop him. “He’s too big, too strong and too fast,” is how Utah small forward Gordon Hayward put it. So, if the Jazz canâ... 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...

  • The Lakers don’t have an injury bug, they have an injury parasite that eats away at their innards like a ravenous zombie in the Walking Dead. Update: Kobe Bryant had an MRI exam, preliminary results show a tear of the rotator cuff. He will fly back to LA. pic.twitter.com/EOZTuu... 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...

  • 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...

  • Their starting shooting guard is done for the year. And tonight, the Utah Jazz could be left to replace his replacement. Rookie Rodney Hood has a sore left heel and is listed as questionable to play tonight against the Atlanta Hawks. Hood, who has been inserted into the starting lineup for the injured Alec Burks, was a partial participant in the team’s morning shootaround. Hood has misse... read more...

  • The San Antonio Spurs are basketball’s reigning champs and coach Gregg Popovich is almost universally considered the best in the game. He’s a smart guy and someone not exactly known for pulling punches. And, for what it’s worth, he believes the Utah Jazz are going to be OK. “As they get used to the system things are just going to get better and better,” Popovich told reporters be... read more...
