Mudiay is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Thunder due to an illness, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Mudiay has fallen out of the rotation as of late. As a result, his potential absence likely wouldn't affect Utah's gameplan.
Mudiay contributed 18 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 18 minutes during Friday's 113-104 loss to San Antonio. Mudiay was productive off the bench Friday, making the most of Mike Conley's (rest) absence. Mudiay has rarely had any sort of impact this season and nights like this remind up of what he can do when afforded a decent amount of playing time. Conley should return for the next game which will likely result in Mudiay returning to his normal role.
Mudiay played 13 minutes off the bench and finished with five points (0-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds and one steal Wednesday in the Jazz's 116-101 win over the Heat. With Mike Conley (illness) out again, Mudiay found himself in the Jazz's rotation for a second straight game. Mudiay was able to shoot the ball well from the free-throw line while he worked as the backup point guard, but there just weren't enough minutes available for him to provide a noteworthy stat line. Conley should be ready to roll when the Jazz open their post-All-Star break schedule Feb. 21 versus San Antonio, so expect Mudiay to move back outside of the rotation for that game.
Mudiay (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Monday in the Jazz's 126-117 loss to the Rockets. Mudiay had missed Utah's previous game Saturday against the Mavericks due to a sore right ankle, but he was cleared to play in advance of Monday's contest. His lack of usage was thus a result of being on the outside of coach Quin Snyder's rotation. Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley, Joe Ingles and Jordan Clarkson absorbed all of the minutes at the backcourt spots, and that's unlikely to change in competitive games when all of those players are available.
