Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz to a 106-102 win over the Wolves on Friday with 24 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and two triples. He hit just 7of-24 shots, but finished 8-of-10 from the free throw line and set a career-high in dimes. Mitchell has slowly turned his season around and was averaging 30+ points in his previous 10 games. "As the season progresses, like any young player, you get better," Coach Quin Snyder said. "And we’re seeing that." Mitchell and the Jazz will get a rematch vs. the Wolves on Sunday.

Minnesota Timerwolves Fantasy Spin

Jeff Teague (foot) remains out for Sunday against the Jazz. He said he couldn't run earlier this week, so missing a week since would be expected. Teague has taken a while to get over his injuries, so his fantasy owners may have to wait a while. Even though Tyus Jones (ankle) is hurt, he's probably worth an IR spot in deep leagues for the long-term play. Jerryd Bayless is your short-term option in standard leagues.
