Niang played 12 minutes Friday in the Jazz's 129-119 win over the Wizards, finishing with six points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and two rebounds.
Niang has held a consistent role in coach Quin Snyder's rotation all season, appearing in each of the Jazz's 40 games since the beginning of December. However, he hasn't received elevated playing time in any of those contests, maxing out at just 22 minutes. The 26-year-old could have some fantasy intrigue if he regularly finds a way to 30-plus minutes at some point, but it'll likely take multiple injuries to starters before that happens.
Niang had 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one steal and one block in 20 minutes off the bench during Monday's 118-88 win over the Pacers.
Niang has scored 10 or more points in back-to-back outings after tallying eight points combined in three games before the two aforementioned ones. He has played at least 15 minutes off the bench in each of Utah's last 10 games and while he is averaging 9.1 points per game during that stretch, he is yet to top the 20-minute plateau since October. The lack of playing time and inconsistent production suggest it's better to keep Niang on waivers outside deep formats.
Niang had 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-8 3PT), five rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 109-96 win at Orlando.
Niang now has back-to-back double-digit scoring performances and he has shot 60.0 percent from the field on those contests. That's an unsustainable small sample size, but he seems to be carving out a role on the rotation for the foreseeable future. That could translate into Niang becoming a potential streaming option on most fantasy formats but only if he can keep scoring at a decent rate on limited minutes.
Niang had 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3PT), one rebound and one steal in 17 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 102-98 win at Chicago.
This was Niang's fourth double-digit scoring performance of the season and the first one since late November. He has been logging between 10 to 20 minutes off the bench on a regular basis, but the lack of production should keep his fantasy upside relatively low moving forward.
Niang had six points (2-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over 14 minutes in Saturday's 120-107 win against the Clippers.
Niang saw double-digit minutes for the fourth time in the last six games, but his impact on the scoreboard was limited by a 28.6 percent field-goal conversion rate. The 26-year-old has logged double-digit point totals in just three games this season, and his inconsistent minutes significantly hinder his fantasy value.
Niang had six points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and two rebounds in Wednesday's 121-96 loss to the Lakers.
In his last five games, Niang is averaging 6.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per game. In those contests the 26-year-old has shot well, converting 46.2 percent of his field goals and 42.9 percent of his threes. However, due to inconsistent minutes and six coach-related DNP's, Niang is likely not a candidate for fantasy consideration, even in deep formats.
Niang supplied 10 points (2-5 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and a an assist in 23 minutes off the bench Friday against the Lakers.
The fourth-year forward was one of the few bright spots for the Jazz in Friday's 95-86 loss to the Lakers. After averaging 8.7 minutes per game for the Jazz last year, Niang's averaging 13.0 minutes per contest so far this year. While it's a small sample size, his increase in run could be an indication of a larger rotational role for Niang going forward. That said, even if Niang's able to secure a modest increase in minutes, there's little likelihood he becomes fantasy relevant outside of the deepest formats.
Niang produced 24 points (9-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 143-137 loss to the Clippers.
Niang played a whopping 40 minutes Wednesday, coming through with a career-best 24 points. The Jazz were either resting or limiting just about everyone which meant the fringe players were able to flaunt their wares. Niang has played at least 20 minutes in four straight games with varied success. He could feature in the rotation heading into the playoffs but is certainly well down in the pecking order in terms of overall fantasy value.
Niang turned in 16 points (6-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot across 27 minutes in Sunday's 113-109 loss to the Lakers.
Although Thabo Sefolosha started for Derrick Favors (back), Niang slid right into the action with the second unit. Niang doesn't see enough time to have a significant impact for the Jazz as he is usually buried on the depth chart, but is a candidate for more time as long as Favors is sidelined.
Niang had eight points (3-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt) and two rebounds in 11 minutes during Thursday's 120-100 win over the Timberwolves.
Niang enjoyed a perfect shooting night while appearing in his fourth straight game, although he earned a combined five minutes across the last three. The 25-year-old wing has played in more games this season (46) than he did during his first two years combined (32). Nevertheless, Niang is averaging just 7.0 minutes per contest, limiting his value to the very deepest formats.
Niang collected five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and two rebounds in five minutes during Wednesday's 106-93 win over the Magic.
Niang made his 28th appearance of the season, and he has appeared in seven of the last 10 games. With that being said, he has earned double-digit minutes only once since Nov. 5, this after logging at least 10 minutes in four of the first 10 tilts to begin 2018-19.
Niang was recalled from the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League on Friday.
Niang has appeared in 21 games for the Jazz this season, but he is averaging just 7.1 minutes per game. He'll continue to move back and forth between the NBA and G League this season, but he should be available for Saturday's trip to Orlando.
Niang was assigned to the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League on Thursday.
Niang is averaging 17.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists across two G League appearances this season, and he will be available for Salt Lake's home game Thursday night against the Northern Arizona Suns.
Niang was recalled from the G League on Wednesday.
Niang has been limited to mostly garbage-time contributions at the NBA level this season, and in two appearances for Salt Lake City he holds averages of 17.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.
Niang was assigned to the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League on Tuesday.

Niang was recalled from the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League on Tuesday.
Niang was assigned to the Stars for the first time this season and played in Monday's game against Rio Grande Valley. Niang had a strong showing with 18 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in the contest and will be back with the Jazz for Tuesday's home game against the Spurs.
Niang was assigned to the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League on Monday, Adam Johnson of 2 Ways 10 Days reports.
Niang hasn't played in five of the Jazz's last eight games, so he'll head down to the G League to stay fresh with the Jazz playing a pair of home games this week.
Niang registered 13 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and a rebound across 13 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Jazz's 113-104 win over the Mavericks.
Niang has appeared in each of the Jazz's six games and has seen his role grow in the last two contests, logging double-digit minutes on both occasions. The forward looked like a candidate to lose his rotation spot with Thabo Sefolosha returning from a five-game suspension Sunday, but Niang instead remained ahead of Sefolosha on the depth chart. The sterling shooting performance should be enough to keep Niang in the rotation through at least Wednesday's game in Minnesota.
Niang notched 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, and one block in 15 minutes during Friday's 129-99 win over the Adelaide 36ers.
Niang somehow managed to foul out, but it was an impressive performance nonetheless. With that being said, Niang isn't likely to crack the Jazz's deep regular season rotation unless a rash of injuries strikes.
Niang posted 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Saturday's 92-86 Vegas Summer league second-round playoff loss to the Grizzlies.
Niang likely had a bit more spring in his step after agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Jazz on Friday, His Summer League performances have certainly warranted the deal. Over five games in Vegas, he's averaged 15.6 points and 6.6 rebounds while averaging 26.6 minutes on the floor.
