The Utah Jazz host the Miami Heat tonight. The good news is that Rudy Gobert is back in the middle, will start, and will get to go up against Hassan Whiteside for the first time this season. The bad news is that Derrick Favors and Rodney Hood are both out. Which means that even with Gobert back the Jazz are still without three of five normal starters. Great! Oh, Alec Burks and Dante Exum are still out as well. On the other side of things, Tyler Johnson and Josh McRoberts are out for the Heat. So, yeah. That's how it is.


Chris Johnson is going to start at SG, and he and Gordon Hayward and Joe Ingles are the only healthy wings on the team now. (Kinda silly to drop Elijah Millsap as he cost peanuts . . . ) Seeing how they match up against Dwyane Wade, Gerald Green, Luol Deng, and Justise Winslow is going to be fun to watch. Hayward could be the best wing out there right now, but he needs some help for sure.

Home game against the Heat. We're usually getting them once a season, and we lost the first game. Let's get this one.
