  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Listed as questionable

    Hughes (conditioning) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Rockets.

    Hughes has cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols and is listed as questionable. However, even when available, he's unlikely to crack the rotation, as he's played more than five minutes just once during the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Not ready to play

    Hughes (COVID-19 protocols) remains out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    A week after the Jazz placed him in the protocols, Hughes hasn't made enough meaningful progress in his recovery from the virus for the team to clear him for conditioning work. The second-year player isn't a key reserve for the Jazz when healthy, as he's appeared in 10 games all season while averaging 6.2 minutes.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Lands in COVID-19 protocols

    Hughes (illness) entered the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Sunday and won't be available for Monday's game against the Pistons.

    Hughes sat out Saturday's game with an illness, so it appears likely that he's tested positive for COVID-19. He'll now be forced to isolate from the team, which could lead to slightly more playing time for Danuel House.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Ruled out Saturday

    Hughes has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pacers due to a non-COVID illness.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Starting against Toronto

    Hughes is starting Friday's game against the Raptors, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Scores 22 points in G League win

    Hughes tallied 22 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Tuesday's 123-97 victory against the Cleveland Charge.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Back in action in G League

    Hughes (groin) played 29 minutes for the G League's Salt Lake City Stars in their 95-92 win over the G League Ignite on Monday, finishing with 21 points (7-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist.

    Hughes' appearance was his first at either the NBA or G League level since Dec. 1 after he had been sidelined for nearly two weeks with a groin injury. Since he's not one of the Jazz's designated two-way players, Hughes should rejoin Utah in short order, but he won't be a regular part of head coach Quin Snyder's rotation.

    Hughes was sidelined Monday for the G League Salt Lake City Stars' loss to the South Bay Lakers with an adductor strain, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Scores 18 against Agua Caliente

    Hughes totaled 18 points (6-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 116-108 defeat against the Agua Caliente Clippers.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Struggles in big loss

    Hughes had eight points (1-13 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Friday's 102-84 defeat against the Stockton Kings.

    All of Salt Lake City's starters struggled on Friday, but none more so than Hughes, who shot 7.7 percent from the floor and scored most of his points from the free throw line against Stockton. He will need to bounce back and play better against the Agua Caliente Clippers on Sunday.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Leads scoring in loss

    Hughes posted a season-high in points Tuesday and shot incredibly efficiently, especially from deep. He came just shy of leading his team to victory against Stockton and almost had a double-double.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Assigned to Salt Lake City

    Hughes was assigned to the Salt Lake City Stars on Tuesday.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Solid showing in G League loss

    Hughes recorded 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-8 3 Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 29 minutes Friday for G League's Salt Lake City Stars in a 116-111 loss to the Santa Cruz Warriors.

    Hughes was appearing in his second straight game for the Stars after recently overcome a non-COVID-19-related illness. The second-year wing from Syracuse isn't one of the Jazz's two two-way players, but he could spend considerable time in the G League this season nonetheless since Utah doesn't have a spot available for him in the NBA rotation.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Dangerous from deep in win

    Hughes had 17 points (6-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 104-102 victory against the Santa Cruz Warriors. He also had a block and a steal defensively.

    Hughes shot 62.5 percent from three-point range on Wednesday in his first G League game of the season. He's recovering from a non-COVID illness that has kept him sidelined for five of the Jazz's last six games. He will need to cut down on the five turnovers he committed against Santa Cruz, however.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Ruled out Tuesday

    Hughes (illness) will not be available for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

    Hughes was initially questionable with a non-COVID illness but will ultimately not be able to suit up. Hughes remains on the back-end of Utah's bench, so his absence won't cause much of a shakeup with their game plan.

  • Jazz's Elijah Hughes: Dealing with non-COVID illness

    Hughes is questionable for Tuesday's contest against the 76ers due to a non-COVID illness.
