|Lauri Markkanen: Participates in shootaround|
Markkanen (knee) participated in Monday's shootaround, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
The Scoop: Markkanen is questionable for Monday's game against Chicago, but his participation in Utah's shootaround is encouraging. He was wearing a small pad on his right knee during the shootaround, and it's unclear whether he'll face any limitations if he's available Monday.

|Lauri Markkanen: Questionable to face Chicago|
Markkanen (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bulls, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
The Scoop: Markkanen is having a career-best season with the Jazz, but there's a chance he might not get to face his former team since he's dealing with a right knee contusion. The forward sustained the injury when he collided knees with Deandre Ayton in Saturday's contest against the Suns, and if he can't go Monday, then Talen Horton-Tucker and Malik Beasley would be candidates for an expanded role.

|Lauri Markkanen: Posts team-high 24 points|
Markkanen contributed 24 points (9-17 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 37 minutes during Friday's 129-118 loss to the Warriors.
The Scoop: Markkanen made two of three shots for six points in the first quarter but also turned the ball over three times in the period to help the Warriors jump out to a 37-23 lead. The Jazz forward cleaned things up after that and later contributed nine fourth-quarter points on 4-of-6 shooting, though the Jazz were unable to claw their way back after falling too far behind early. Markkanen hit five three-pointers in the contest for just the second time this season and has now scored 20 or more points in four of his last five games.

|Lauri Markkanen: Records double-double in win|
Markkanen amassed 23 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's 118-113 win over the Trail Blazers.
The Scoop: Markkanen had another strong performance, but he took a step back down the stretch to allow Malik Beasley and Jordan Clarkson to take over when the Jazz needed it the most. He still recorded his third double-double of the month and has scored at least 20 points in four of his last seven appearances. In the midst of what has been a career-best season so far, Markkanen is averaging 22.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game while shooting 58 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from deep in 10 November games.
