Jazz's Dante Exum: Will start Thursday

Exum will draw the start at point guard in Thursday's matchup against the Heat.

Both George Hill and Rodney Hood have been ruled out, so the Jazz's backcourt depth is relatively thin. As a result, Exum should be in line for a heavy workload running the point. With everyone healthy in Wednesday's win over the Timberwolves Exum fell out of the rotation, so he will presumably have an opportunity to impress Wednesday. He is averaging 9.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists across 30 minutes in six games as a starter this season.
