  • Sacramento, Calif. • Alec Burks is back. After a two-game absence — and a handful of physicians’ opinions on his left shoulder — the Jazz shooting guard will be in the starting lineup tonight as Utah tries to snap an eight-game losing streak against the Sacramento Kings. “Get him back in there. He’s ready to go,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. Burks got four different opinions... read more...

  • A shoulder injury will keep Alec Burks out of the Jazz’s starting lineup for at least the next two games. The team announced Wednesday morning that the fourth-year shooting guard will miss games against the Toronto Raptors and the Orlando Magic while undergoing additional testing on his left shoulder. For now, the Jazz are calling the guard’s injury a “left shoulder inflammation.”... read more...

  • A sudden departure has once again put Ty Corbin in the head coach’s seat. The Sacramento Kings surprised the basketball world late Sunday night by firing coach Michael Malone, a move first reported by Yahoo! Sports. So as was the case nearly four years ago with the abrupt resignation of Jerry Sloan, Corbin has been tasked with taking the reins of a team in the middle of a season. Accordi... read more...

  • This has the potential to be a big week for the Utah Jazz. Why, you ask? Why would this week be significant in a season that lasts through mid-April? Here’s the answer. The Jazz don’t want to lose contact. With that, we mean contact with the .500 mark, especially early in the year. It’s fairly obvious that this is a much better team than last season. It’s obvious that the Jazz... read more...

  • Dante Exum is looking forward to a chance to matchup against one of his NBA heroes — but the opportunity to go head-to-head with Bulls guard Derrick Rose might not happen tonight. Rose is recovering from a hamstring injury and is listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s 7:30 tipoff at EnergySolutions Arena. The Bulls will be without forward Taj Gibson and the availability of Pau Ga... 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...

  • 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...

  • If Anthony Davis makes a couple baskets in a row tonight, Jazz coach Quin Snyder might not immediately change up his team’s defensive match up. “He’s going to do that to the next guy he matches up with,” Snyder said in the run up to tip-off. Davis, the New Orleans Pelicans budding superstar, has been a nightmare for defenders around the league so far this season. He’s third in th... read more...

  • Golden State right now may be one of the best teams in the NBA. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are certainly one of the very best backcourts in the league. All of that is understood. But what also must be understood is that the Utah Jazz still need to be more competitive than they were on Friday night. That was a big message conveyed by Jazz coach Quin Snyder in the moments following ... read more...

  • The smile on Gordon Hayward is back. That’s what happens when you are largely free of the flu bug that’s dogged you over the course of a week - two games on the calender, if you’re keeping track at home. Hayward - the star small forward for the Utah Jazz - was less than himself against the Toronto Raptors and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night. He didn’t have explosion g... read more...
