The Jazz injury luck has run out

NBA: Utah Jazz at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Up till the last few games, the Utah Jazz have been pretty lucky with injuries. None of the Jazz starters has missed any sort of significant time so far this season.

Until now.

With the schedule finally easing up on the Jazz, it looks like it’s going to be a little harder than expected as they’ll be missing Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum for the next week or so.

It is vital that players step up that don’t normally get as much time. These winnable games are vital for the team to make the playoffs. Losing a game the Jazz are favored to win, at this point, could be the difference of being in or out of the playoffs.

Donovan Mitchell will likely take on the majority of the point guard duties until the return of Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum, as well.

Ekpe’s Book Club is back again but this time with a special guest, Camron Wright.

Edpe’s book club is one of the cooler things I’ve seen a Jazz player do. Don’t miss out on something super unique, Jazz fans!

If things do go south for the Utah Jazz and they don’t make the playoffs, there is a small silver lining.

There is a realm somewhere in this universe where the Jazz don’t make the playoffs, jump to the number one pick and then roll out a lineup next year of (take your pick of Dante Exum or Ricky Rubio), Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Zion Williamson and Rudy Gobert.

Going to the playoffs is the #1 goal for the Jazz, but if they don’t make it, hoping for that will cure some of the pain if the Jazz fall short.

This was a great video of a great birthday gift for any Jazz fan!

It’s always great to see how much passion there is among Jazz nation!

This is a great point by @tarebear on twitter, one of the best Jazz fans out there.

Considering the Jazz recently upped the prices for the upper bowl, this seems like a very reasonable request to help out the fans.
