Pleiss was reassigned to the D-League on Thursday. Pleiss was just recalled in advance of Wednesday night's game, but he'll head back to the Idaho Stampede with the expectation that he'll be in uniform for Friday's matchup against Reno. It will be Pleiss' third D-League assignment of the season, and he's averaged 11.8 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in nine previous appearances for the Stampede.
Pleiss was recalled from the D-League's Idaho Stampede, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports. Pleiss' stay in the D-League was very brief, as he only played in two games during this trip. Between the two games, the center totaled 25 points, 14 rebounds, seven assists, and six blocks. Despite the strong showing, it's unlikely that he'll get very much playing time with the Jazz going forward.
Pleiss was sent back to the D-League on Thursday, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports. Pleiss has failed to crack Quin Snyder's rotation this season, and he'll now head back to Idaho, where he's already played seven games for the Stampede. In those contests, Pleiss is averaging 11.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in just over 30 minutes per game.
Pleiss failed to see any playing time off the bench during Saturday's win over the Heat. Pleiss was given 24 minutes off the bench Wednesday against San Antonio, but Rudy Gobert (knee) has returned to the court which effectively ends his spurt of playing time under coach Quin Snyder. In fact, Pleiss is now a candidate for a move down to the D-League where he can see live action.
Pleiss was recalled from the D-League and is expected to join the Jazz for Wednesday night's game against the Pelicans, Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

In seven D-League appearances, Pleiss has averaged 11.6 points to go with 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
