  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Grabs 10th double-double

    Kessler totaled 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and five blocks in 25 minutes during Saturday's 108-100 win over the Mavericks. Kessler was a force for Utah in the first half, posting seven boards and four blocks to go along with 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting. He attempted only one more shot in the second half but did grab another four rebounds to notch his 10th double-double of the season. The center led the contest in blocks (five) and rebounds (11) and shot above 75 percent for a third straight game. It was also his third time this month with at least five blocks.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Expected to remain starter

    Coach Will Hardy disclosed Friday that Kessler will likely remain in the starting five even once Kelly Olynyk (ankle) is available, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. This is great news for fantasy managers that have taken a chance on Kessler, hoping he would force himself into a starting role at some point in the year. The rookie has started the past eight games, averaging 11.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.4 assists while shooting 67.2 percent from the field. His poor free-throw shooting -- 53.8 percent on the season- caps his upside, but Kessler is a must-roster in most standard fantasy leagues due to his block and rebound potential.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Produces 13 points efficiently

    Kessler contributed 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 FT) and nine rebounds in 22 minutes during Monday's 120-102 win over the Hornets. For only the fourth time this season in which he's played at least 20 minutes, Kessler finished without a block. Even so, the rookie was still able to come through with a useful line for fantasy managers while achieving his scoring efficiently. The rookie has started each of Utah's last seven games and has averaged 11.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 27.9 minutes while knocking down two-thirds of his field-goal attempts.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Monster night on boards

    Kessler supplied 20 points (9-13 FG, 2-4 FT), 21 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 31 minutes during Monday's 126-125 win over the Timberwolves. Kessler's 21 rebounds set a new career high, and his 20 points matched a career high as well. The rookie center has been on a tear this month, and with Kelly Olynyk (ankle) still out, he has really stepped up with the increase in minutes. Even when Olynyk is healthy, Kessler's opportunity is significant enough that he shouldn't be on any fantasy waiver wires at this point.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Comes through with double-double

    Kessler finished with 15 points (7-7 FG, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes in Saturday's 118-117 loss to the 76ers. Kessler took a step back in the blocks column after swatting 14 shots across his previous three games, but he still made an impact in the category while coming away with a double-double on flawless shooting from the field and free-throw line. While Kelly Olynyk (ankle) is out of the lineup, Kessler should be locked into a starting role and warrants a roster spot in just about every fantasy format.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Blocks career-high seven shots

    Kessler contributed 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-6 FT), nine rebounds, seven blocks and two steals across 27 minutes during Friday's 112-108 win over the Magic. Kessler was a man on a mission Friday, flirting with a double-double while adding nine defensive counters, including a career-highblock total. A recent injury to Kelly Olynyk (ankle) has opened the door for Kessler to step into the starting lineup. Even without the injury to Olynyk, Kessler was already pegged as a must-roster player in 12-team category leagues primarily due to his role as an elite shot blocker.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Gets starting nod

    Kessler is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup versus the Cavaliers, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. The rookie big man will replace Kelly Olynyk (ankle) in the starting five Tuesday. Kessler has averaged 9.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 25.0 minutes across his previous six starts.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Rejections-a-plenty Sunday

    Kessler posted 10 points (5-7 FG), 11 rebounds, one assist and six blocks over 23 minutes during Sunday's 123-118 loss to the Grizzlies. Kessler was a force to be reckoned with in the loss, swatting a career-high six shots to go with 11 boards. With Kelly Olynyk re-injuring his ankle late in the piece, Kessler could be in line for an uptick in playing time. The Jazz have already verbalized the fact that they expect Olynyk to miss time, music to the ears of anyone rostering Kessler. Monitor the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers but if the stars align, Kessler could be about to stamp his authority on things.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Two rejections in spot start

    Kessler posted 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 25 minutes during Monday's 122-99 loss to Cleveland. With Kelly Olynyk (ankle) in street clothes, Kessler got the start at center and put together a well-rounded line in the box score. The 22nd overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft has made three starts in nine December contests while seeing his role grow in the Utah frontcourt, averaging 10.1 points, 8.8 boards and 2.4 blocks in 22.1 minutes a game on the month while shooting an absurd 81.3 percent from the floor.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Draws spot start Monday

    Kessler will start Monday's contest against the Cavaliers, Spencer Davies of BasketballNews.com reports. Kelly Olynyk (ankle) is out, paving the way for Kessler to draw his third career start. In his previous two starts, the rookie center has averaged 8.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 22.5 minutes per game. Kessler figures to see a similar role Monday, though he faces a tough matchup against Cleveland's formidable frontcourt.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Outplays Vanderbilt on Thursday

    Kessler finished with 11 points (4-4 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes in Thursday's 132-129 overtime win over the Pelicans. Though he came off the bench for a third game in a row behind Jarred Vanderbilt, Kessler remained highly productive. The rookie center has swatted exactly three shots in each of those three contests, and he's also averaging 10.7 points and 10.7 rebounds while shooting 65 percent from the field over that stretch. Kessler notably saw seven more minutes than Vanderbilt on Thursday, so the move to the bench shouldn't be taken as evidence that Kessler will be moving into a smaller role.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Swallows 16 boards Tuesday

    Kessler supplied 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 FT), 16 rebounds and three blocks across 23 minutes during Tuesday's 121-100 victory over the Pelicans. Kessler did all of his damage in 23 minutes Tuesday, flashing his tremendous per-minute upside once again. The 16 rebounds marked a career-high for the rookie, while he has now blocked at least three shots in four of his past five games. Despite playing just 22 minutes per night over the past two weeks, he has been able to put up top-35 production. His path to bigger minutes is not clear, but even in a limited role, he is very close to being a must-roster player.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Returns to bench

    Kessler isn't in the starting five for Saturday's game against the Nuggets, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Jarred Vanderbilt will replace Kessler in the starting lineup Saturday. Kessler will move back to the bench after starting in the previous two games.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Double-double in first career start

    Kessler amassed 10 points (5-6 FG), 12 rebounds, five blocks and one assist across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 124-123 win over the Warriors. A product of the Rudy Gobert trade, Kessler found himself in a better spot with a team in rebuild mode. With Lauri Markkanen scratched from the lineup Wednesday due to illness and Jarred Vanderbilt moved to a reserve role, the rookie first-round pick found his way into the starting five. He finished with a new career-high total in rebounds while proving to be an active shot blocker. The 21-year-old rejected 4.6 shots per game during his final season of college at Auburn and already looks like one of the NBA's top rim protectors. In just 16.2 minutes per game this season, he's averaging 1.8 blocks.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Making first career start

    Kessler is in the starting five Wednesday versus Golden State, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Kessler is making his first career start two games removed from his best performance of the year. The rookie has averaged 5.8 points and 5.3 rebounds in 23 appearances off the bench.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Career-best performance in win

    Kessler ended Friday's 139-119 victory over the Pacers with 20 points (7-7 FG, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 25 minutes. Kessler enjoyed his best game as a pro Friday, establishing his high mark in scoring with 20 points while making all seven of his field-goal attempts. The talented rookie also grabbed a career-high 11 boards to record his first NBA double-double. While Kessler can't usually be counted on as a scorer, he's been quite reliable as a shot blocker of late, posting multiple swats in four of his past six contests.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Another four blocks Wednesday

    Kessler finished Wednesday's 125-112 win over the Clippers with five points (2-3 FG, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and four blocks in 22 minutes. Kessler did what he does best in the win, swatting a game-high four shots off the bench. Despite the low minutes, he is proving to be one of the best shot blockers in the league. He is currently averaging 1.6 blocks per game in only 15.4 minutes. As long as the Jazz are contending, his role is unlikely to change too much, leaving him as an elite streaming option across all competitive leagues.

  • Jazz's Walker Kessler: Swats five shots in loss

    Kessler chipped in five points (2-2 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and five blocks over 21 minutes during Wednesday's 125-116 loss to the Pistons. Kessler has yet to figure out how to become a consistent scorer, but the rookie has shown on several occasions his potential as a shot blocker. His five swats Wednesday were the most he has recorded in a single game thus far in his brief career, exceeding the four blocks he posted in his second NBA contest Oct. 21. Kessler is averaging 1.5 blocks across 15.2 minutes per game, tops among all NBA rookies.

    Kessler (illness) will join the Jazz on the team's upcoming three-game road trip, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Kessler took part in shootaround Monday before being ruled out of the evening's contest. It looks like he's trending toward a return at some point on the road trip, though it's unclear yet if he will be ready for the first road game Wednesday versus the Mavericks. More information on that front should surface when the team releases its injury report.
