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.
