The Scoop:He's less than 100 percent healthy and faces the league's premier defense, so there's no incentive to gamble on him in fantasy leagues. He's averaging 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds in Utah's last five games.
Jeremy Evans came off Utah's bench for four points, eight rebounds and two blocks in Sunday's road loss to the Pacers.
The Scoop:He was questionable to play due to a sprained ankle, but wound up giving another efficient performance in 20 minutes off the bench. Lines like this are the norm for Evans, so if you don't find it useful look elsewhere for waiver wire production.
The Scoop:Evans logged just 14 minutes in Utah's last game and he doesn't have enough fantasy upside to be worth gambling on at less than 100 percent. If he does sit out, his minutes will be absorbed by Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams and Brandon Rush.
Gordon Hayward put up 17 points and added 10 rebounds and 9 assists in an impressive all-around performance to lead the Utah Jazz to a blowout victory over the Phoenix Suns, 109-86. The Jazz had a strong shooting performance, finishing 42-74 (56.8%) from the field, including 9-18 (50.0%) from beyond the arc. Utah (21-36) has now won back-to-back games after defeating Boston Celtics on Monday. Utah also got solid performances from Derrick Favors with 15 points and 7 rebounds, and Jeremy Evans with 11 points and 8 rebounds.
