Exum generated five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt) over 18 minutes in Thursday's 112-105 overtime loss to the Mavericks.
Exum drew the spot start while George Hill rested his sore toe, but barely moved the needle over his 18 minutes. He provided no other stats other than his scoring, and saw veteran Shelvin Mack outpace him in playing time by seven additional minutes. Exum had provided double-digit scoring two of the previous three games and has seen double-digit minutes in four straight, so he remains a Hail Mary-option in very deep season-long formats -- as well as a high-risk dart throw in daily leagues -- if Hill remains sidelined for Saturday's tilt against the Celtics.
Exum will draw the start at point guard for Thursday's tilt against the Mavericks.
With George Hill (toe) resting, Exum will join the starting five. Over his last three games, Exum is averaging 9.7 points and 2.7 assists across 19.7 minutes per contest, and should be in line for a bigger workload Thursday. He'll likely head back to the bench once Hill returns, but could make an interesting DFS option while he's due for increased minutes.
Exum recorded eight points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 14 minutes in a 97-95 loss to the Thunder on Monday.
Raul Neto had recently leapfrogged both Exum and Shelvin Mack on the depth chart at point guard, but it was Exum and Alec Burks who saw all the time initiating the offense Monday when starting point guard George Hill was off the court. Burks still sees the bulk of his time off the ball, so it seems likely that Exum will slot in as the primary backup at point guard going forward, especially in light of his strong outing Monday. Exum has generally disappointed in his first season back from an ACL tear, but the Jazz still view the 21-year-old as a major part of their long-term plans.
Exum (knee) was recalled Monday from the D-League's Salt Lake City Stars.
Exum briefly joined the Stars on Monday to take part in their practice, as coach Quin Snyder wanted to get him some extra work. He's now set to rejoin the Jazz and should be good to go off the bench against the Cavaliers on Tuesday. With George Hill (concussion) back to full strength, Exum's role is on the decline in the backcourt, which makes it tough to roster him in the majority of fantasy leagues.
Exum, Alec Burks and Raul Neto are all heading to the Stars in order to log another practice before the
