Top Royce O'Neale News

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Full participant at practice

    O'Neale (ankle) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports.

    O'Neale has missed two straight games due to a sprained right ankle, but he appears to be trending in the right direction for Friday's contest against the Celtics. As a full-time starter this year, O'Neale is averaging 7.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.7 steals across 31.0 minutes per game.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Questionable Monday

    O'Neale (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    O'Neale has been dealing with a lingering ankle sprain that kept him out of Saturday's matchup against the Pelicans. If he's forced to miss a second straight game, Rudy Gay and Eric Paschall should see increased run.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Questionable Saturday

    O'Neale (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Pelicans, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    No surprise here, as O'Neale has been a regular on the injury report with this issue. However, he continues to play through it at 31.5 minutes per game. Still, his status will need to be monitored until the team officially clears him prior to tip-off.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Out Saturday

    O'Neale (ankle) is out Saturday against the Pelicans, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    O'Neale has been a regular on the injury report with a sprained ankle, but Saturday will be his first absence of the season. In his place, Rudy Gay and Eric Paschall will likely see increased roles against the Pelicans.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Records three blocks, two steals

    O'Neale (ankle/foot) logged six points (2-4 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 32 minutes Friday during a 98-97 loss versus New Orleans.

    Multiple sprains did not prevent O'Neale from continuing to do well defensively. Across his last seven games, he is averaging 1.6 steals and 1.3 blocks. O'Neale has an excellent steals-plus-blocks average indicating the forward would be beneficial to fantasy managers who value defense.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Good to go

    O'Neale (foot) is available for Friday's matchup with the Pelicans, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    O'Neale has been a regular on the Jazz's injury report since suffering an ankle sprain on Nov. 3. Utah appears to be erring on the side of caution with the injury report, as he has not missed a game and averaged 31.5 minutes per contest. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Questionable vs. Pelicans

    O'Neale is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans with a sprained right ankle and foot.

    O'Neale initially surfaced on the injury report Nov. 3 with a sprain of the same ankle, but he's proceeded to play in each of the Jazz's subsequent 11 games while averaging 31.5 minutes per contest. If O'Neale ends up sidelined Friday for the first time this season, the Jazz would likely turn to Rudy Gay, Joe Ingles and Eric Paschall to cover most of his minutes.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Seven defensive counters Wednesday

    O'Neale accumulated five points (2-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and five steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 110-104 win over Oklahoma City.

    O'Neale struggled on the offensive end of the court during the win but more than made up for it by accumulating some gaudy defensive production. He has been solid for the Jazz, once again, and plays his role to perfection on most nights. He has basically zero upside when it comes to fantasy, but his ability to chip in across the board makes him a worthwhile addition in all fantasy formats.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Mediocre in win

    O'Neale contributed 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and four assists over 33 minutes in a 110-98 win over the Hawks on Tuesday.

    O'Neale now has three straight performances with double-digit scoring, after not exceeding 10 points all season previously. O'Neale is an elite defender, but that infrequently shows in the box score. Averaging multiple steals per game would cement him as a viable fantasy asset, but until he does so he's only worth monitoring.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Productive night Sunday

    O'Neale finished with 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, three steals and two assists in 34 minutes during Sunday's 107-100 loss to the Magic.

    O'Neale produced his best game of the season to date in what was a disappointing loss. Despite a consistent role, his production is often a little underwhelming. He has the ability to be an efficient scorer and his defensive effort is always there. Fantasy managers in standard leagues should view him as a viable asset, although streaming his position could also be just as beneficial.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Cleared to play

    O'Neale (ankle) is available Saturday against the Heat.

    O'Neale will play through a sprained right ankle, and he has yet to miss a game this season. Over the past five games, he's averaging 6.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.2 steals.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Questionable for Saturday

    O'Neale (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers.

    O'Neale played through the ankle injury Thursday against the Hawks and may do so again Saturday. He didn't appear limited by the issue in Atlanta and played 34 minutes while putting up nine points (3-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FG), six rebounds and six assists.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Good to go Thursday

    O'Neale (ankle) will be available for Thursday's game against the Hawks, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

    The defensive-minded wing was questionable coming into the day, but he's been given the green light to play, and he could be set for increased minutes with Donovan Mitchell (ankle) sidelined. As usual, O'Neale isn't providing much on the offensive end (5.1 PPG), but he's chipped in 4.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.9 threes per game thus far.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Dealing with ankle sprain

    O'Neale is questionable for Thursday's game against the Hawks due to a sprained right ankle.

    O'Neale apparently picked up the injury during Tuesday's win over the Kings, when he had only two points (1-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes. Rudy Gobert (heel) is out and Donovan Mitchell (ankle) is also questionable, so O'Neale could have a bigger offensive role Thursday if available.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Plays 28 minutes in blowout win

    O'Neale saw 28 minutes and posted zero points (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one block during Wednesday's 108-86 opening-night victory over the Thunder.

    O'Neale remains an extremely low-usage starter in Utah's rotation, and he's there mainly as a three-and-D option with nice rebounding upside. When the Jazz are in more competitive games, he should see 30-plus minutes.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Double-doubles in loss

    O'Neale had 21 points (8-12 FG, 4-6 3pt, 1-1 FT) and 10 rebounds in Friday's 131-119 loss to the Clippers.

    O'Neale had one of his best games of the year, as he recorded just his fourth double-double of the year and had a season-high 21 points. The 28-year-old isn't typically known for scoring, but he improved his scoring average by over four points in 11 playoff games this year. A large reason for that was his shooting improvement, as he shot 46.7 percent from three and 50.6 percent overall from the field. It's unrealistic to hold him to these shooting standards heading into next season, but he's definitely shown his potential after stepping up in the playoffs.

  • Jazz's Royce O'Neale: Teases double-double in victory

    O'Neale closed with nine points (3-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), nine rebounds, three steals and one assist in 35 minutes during Monday's 120-113 victory over Memphis.

    O'Neale played a team-high 35 minutes in Monday's Game 4 victory, emphasizing just how important he is to the Jazz. While he typically won't blow anyone away with eye-popping stats, he has the ability to contribute on both ends of the floor on a seemingly regular basis. Looking ahead and assuming the Jazz can wrap the series up in the next game, O'Neale should continue to be a key piece for the Jazz as they strive for an elusive piece of silverware.
