The Utah Jazz just announced that star player Gordon Hayward will not be playing tonight against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tonight is the second night on a back to back for the Jazz, who defeated the Sacramento Kings last night.

Hayward plays big minutes every season and has yet to have missed a game this year. This is the first. Perhaps the silver lining here is giving him rest in this game, so he's ready to ball in the games against teams we're likely to be. It's a smart move, and hopefully we'll get to see some Trey Lyles at the three, right? Yes? No? Alec Burks then? Okay, I'll stop making jokes. Expect to see a lot of Chris Johnson on King James. At least they ALSO played last night.

Should be fun.
