Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Rudy Gobert returned after missing Saturday's game with a sore right knee and had 14 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks on 5-of-7 shooting in Monday's 111-97 win over the Lakers. The Jazz currently sit just 1.5 games above the streaking Suns for the top seed in the West and will have to keep playing well without Donovan Mitchell if they're going to hang onto the top seed and best record. Joe Ingles and Jordan Clarkson were very good tonight and will need to keep it going for the Jazz.
Houston Rockets DFS Notes
John Wall returned from a rest day and hit 4-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 14 points, four rebounds, six assists and a steal in 30 minutes of Monday's 113-91 loss to the Heat. Wall didn't look great tonight and his Rockets are terrible (15 wins), but at least he's still playing. The Rockets play Utah on Wednesday and then go back-to-back against the Clippers and Nuggets on Friday and Saturday, so you can probably expect Wall to sit one of those weekend games.
