  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Will remain sidelined

    Markkanen (hamstring) will remain sidelined for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Markkanen's absence will be his fifth straight game on the sidelines due to a lingering hamstring issue. As a result, Simone Fontecchio will presumably continue starting. Markkanen's next chance to suit up will come Wednesday against the Mavericks.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Will miss upcoming back-to-back

    Markkanen (hamstring) won't be available for games Wednesday in Memphis or Thursday in Minnesota, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Markkanen has already missed Utah's last two games due to a left hamstring strain, and he'll now miss two additional contests. The veteran forward won't travel with the Jazz and will remain behind in Utah to continue rehabbing the injury with the hope of being ready to go for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers. Simone Fontecchio will likely continue starting at small forward in Markkanen's stead.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Dealing with hamstring soreness

    Markkanen is dealing with left hamstring soreness and is questionable for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, according to Jazz radio host David Locke.

    Hamstring injuries can linger if teams are not careful, so this is a concern for Utah and for Markkanen's fantasy managers. If Markkanen is held out Saturday, we could see Kelly Olynyk maintain a large role even if Walker Kessler (elbow) is cleared to return after being initially listed as questionable.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Approaches double-double Wednesday

    Markkanen closed with 24 points (9-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds and three steals across 34 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Markkanen was held to a season-low 10 points during Tuesday's blowout loss to the Lakers, but he bounced back by scoring 20-plus points for the 11th time over 15 appearances this year. He's posted just one double-double over his last 10 outings but has still been relatively consistent on the boards while also generating decent production on the defensive side of the ball.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Erupts for 38 points

    Markkanen chipped in 38 points (15-27 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 6-9 FT), 17 rebounds, two blocks and two steals over 50 minutes during Sunday's 140-137 double-overtime loss to the Suns.

    Markkanen's 38 points mark a new season high, and he finished a couple of boards shy of his career high in rebounds(19). While Markkanen has been excellent as a scorer, rebounder and three-point shooter, it should also be noted that he's on pace to average career highs in steals (1.0) and blocks (1.0).

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Sniffs double-double

    Markkanen ended with 21 points (8-18 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, one block and one steal across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 115-99 victory over Portland.

    Markkanen ended just one rebound away from what would've been his fourth double-double of the year. While he hasn't accomplished that feat since Nov. 1, Markkanen continues to play steady, productive basketball for the Jazz, scoring at least 20 points in each of his last six games and pulling down seven or more rebounds five times in that span. Markkanen should remain one of Utah's most consistent fantasy performers as long as he stays healthy.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Strong showing in loss

    Markkanen supplied 24 points (8-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, one block and one steal across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 134-118 loss to the Pacers.

    The 26-year-old forward scored at least 22 points for the fourth straight game and the sixth time in nine contests to begin the season, while just missing his fifth double-double. Markkanen also drained multiple threes in every game, and he's off to a career-best start from beyond the arc, shooting 44.6 percent from long range while averaging 4.1 made threes a night.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Sniffs double-double

    Markkanen recorded 22 points (7-20 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block over 35 minutes during Saturday's 123-95 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Markkanen didn't have his best shooting performance and needed 20 shots to score 22 points, but he finished two boards away from a double-double and was one of Utah's focal points on offense. Unfortunately for him, the Jazz are enduring a tough start to the season, and Markkanen's numbers have not translated into wins for the Jazz. Markkanen remains valuable in fantasy despite the team's woes, however, as he hasn't scored less than 19 points in any game and has surpassed the 20-point mark in four of his seven appearances.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Goes for 22 points Thursday

    Markkanen posted 22 points (9-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 0-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and two steals over 33 minutes during Thursday's 115-113 loss to Orlando.

    Markkanen couldn't reach his fifth double-double of the season, but at least he surpassed the 20-point mark for the third time. Markkanen has scored 19 or more points in each of his first six games of the campaign, and while the season is still very young, he already looks like one of the most consistent frontcourt players in the league. Given his massive role on offense for the Jazz, he should keep producing steady numbers while flirting with double-doubles every time he steps on the court.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Logs fourth double-double of season

    Markkanen contributed 19 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 28 minutes during Wednesday's 133-109 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Markkanen has been relentless to begin the season and has had his way against the likes of Nikola Jokic, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard to begin the year. No one has cracked the formula to shut Markkanen down, and he is single-handedly thrusting the Jazz back into relevancy in the Western Conference.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Stuffs stat sheet

    Markkanen posted 27 points (10-24 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, five assists and one block across 38 minutes during Monday's 110-102 loss to Denver.

    Markkanen notched season highs in rebounds, assists and field-goal attempts. He ranks sixth league-wide in total shot attempts, which creates an elite fantasy floor when paired with his rebounding.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Solid outing in blowout loss

    Markkanen recorded 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt), three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes during Saturday's 126-104 loss to the Suns.

    Outside of Markkanen, the Jazz shot just 23.3 percent from beyond the arc in a game where they were down by 16 and halftime and 28 heading into the final quarter. His 24.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game over the first three contests of the season are on par with his averages from last season, and he'll continue to be a focal point in Utah's offensive scheme.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Big double-double in win

    Markkanen amassed 35 points (12-23 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes during Friday's 120-118 win over the Clippers.

    The 26-year-old forward led the Jazz in scoring on the night while delivering his second straight double-double to begin the year. Markkanen is quickly proving his 2022-23 breakout was no fluke, and after amassing a career-high 28 double-doubles in 66 games last season, he appears intent on blowing that mark out of the water.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Double-double in loss

    Markkanen had 19 points (6-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and an assist over 32 minutes in Wednesday's 130-114 loss to the Kings.

    Markkanen earned his first All-Star nod in the 2022-23 season after averaging a career-best 25.6 points per game while shooting 49.9 percent from the field. He wasn't able to reach that mark in Utah's season opener, though it was a night in which the Jazz found themselves in a double-digit deficit entering halftime. Markkanen will look to get himself and the Jazz back on track Friday at home against the Clippers.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Cleared to play

    Markkanen will be good to go for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Ben Anderson of KSL Sports reports.

    Markkanen was rested for the preseason finale Oct. 19, but he wasn't carrying an injury. He's expected to spend more time at small forward this season with the arrival of John Collins and Taylor Hendricks, but he'll still be the focal point of the offense.
