The @Utah Jazz will be extremely shorthanded tomorrow against the @Toronto Raptors including Rudy Gobert entering the NBA protocol. pic.twitter.com/UFbCmdQBCd5:37 PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
All of the Jazz players listed as out are not traveling to Toronto and will meet the team in Indiana.

OUT (health and safety protocols): Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, George Hill, Jrue Holiday
OUT (left ankle sprain): Donte DiVincenzo
OUT (back surgery): Brook Lopez
Probable: Giannis Antetokounmpo – 5:36 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Toronto’s last five wins have all come against teams without their best player. They’ll have a chance to add to that tomorrow night against the Gobert-less Jazz – 5:35 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
According to the #Bucks injury report, Jrue Holiday has entered the league’s health and safety protocol.
Holiday went through it last season as well.
He joins George Hill, Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton in the protocol. – 5:33 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Gobert returned two rapid negative tests yesterday. But his PCR test overnight came back positive. – 5:30 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
So, if you are scoring at home
Gobert and ingles are in health and safety. Mitchell and Conley and Bogdanovic are out. Clarkson, Whiteside and O’Neale and Gay are questionable….
Gonna be a skeleton crew for the Jazz tomorrow night against the raptors – 5:26 PM

Shams Charania @ShamsCharania

Jrue Holiday @Jrue_Holiday11
I hit @esmartr with a cross over and dropped the price for the holidays.
Get 25% off your sleeve when you use HOLIDAY25. Boom. pic.twitter.com/zoPr9iNvJC3:21 PM

Both Rudy Gobert and Hassan Whiteside wound up being ruled out Wednesday for the Utah Jazz’s game in Denver. So, lots of small-ball from Rudy Gay … and a surprise start for the just-returned Udoka Azubuike, who thought the Jazz were joking. sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20…9:22 AM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Salaries of the five players who have grabbed 16 rebounds in at least three consecutive games this season:
Rudy Gobert, $35.3 million
Nikola Jokic, $30.5 million
Nikola Vucevic, $24 million
Clint Capela, $17.1 million
Omer Yurtseven, $1.5 million – 12:53 AM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Some @OmerYurtseven5 notes…
– 3rd Heat player with 10 straight games of 10 rebounds (Whiteside, Seikaly)
– 3rd Heat player with 3 straight games of 16 rebounds (also Whiteside, Seikaly)
– 5th player with 3 straight 16-rebound games this season (Gobert, Jokic, Capela, Vucevic) – 12:48 AM

Rudy Gobert @rudygobert27
Big time winnnnnnnn #takenote12:25 AM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz beat Nuggets 115-109. Without Rudy Gobert, without Hassan Whiteside, without Joe Ingles, Jazz get a win against Denver on the road.
Jokic had 26 points, 21 rebs, 11 assists. Bogdanovic had 36 points on 12-20 FG, including 11-14 from 2-point range. – 12:24 AM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz defeat the Nuggets 115-109 in a candidate for win of the year. Utah survives Jokic without Gobert or Whiteside. Bogdanovic goes bonkers. Gay makes shots. Dok turns in impressive minutes. Utah moves to 28-10 on the season. Trip moves to Toronto and the raptors on Friday – 12:23 AM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
FINAL: Jazz 115, Nuggets 109. No Gobert, Whiteside, Ingles? Yeah, Utah will take this. 10 straight road wins, 28-10 overall. Bogey 36/13/4. Gay 18/7. Royce 13/11/5. Mike 10/6a/4r. Don 17p. JC 13p. Jokic an absurd 26/21/11. Jazz road trip continues Friday in Toronto. – 12:22 AM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Pretty blueprint performance for the Jazz without Gobert. Be great offensively. Fight like hell on the defensive end and get as many stops as possible. The Nuggets were going to score, but the Jazz just kept scoring whenever needed. This would be a good win – 12:17 AM

Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Nuggets trail the Gobert-less Jazz 57-56 at the half.
Gordon leads the Nuggets with 13 points, Monte has knocked down 3 triples in his return and Jokic is up to 10 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists.
If you’re Coach Malone, what’s your message to the team? – 11:07 PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz and Nuggets tied at 26 after 1Q. So far, so good for the Jazz, who have managed to look pretty decent so far without Gobert or Whiteside. – 10:37 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
A Jrue Holiday 3 cuts the Bucks’ deficit to four with 19.7 left. – 10:20 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Jrue Holiday has a double-double with 12 points and 12 assists. #Bucks trying again to rally in the final minutes. – 10:12 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Jrue Holiday has been uncharacteristically sloppy with the basketball tonight. That last turnover has him up to eight turnovers on the night. – 10:08 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Jrue Holiday also has 7 turnovers tonight. That’s weird. He has 12 points and 9 assists. #Bucks have 16 turnovers total. – 10:02 PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Rudy Gobert, Joe Ingles and Hassan Whiteside are out for Utah tonight in Denver. Donovan Mitchell, Bojan Bogdanovic, Jordan Clarkson and Royce O’Neale are available. – 8:48 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
So as you may have seen, no Gobert, no Whiteside, no Ingles tonight for the Jazz…..against Jokic….but Dok is playing….. – 8:45 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Quin said that Dok’s injury was not as bad as initially feared, and that he’s been working hard to return. Said he was cleared even before the other centers were ruled out. Added that Rudy Gobert had a fever of 102 degrees today. – 8:44 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Quin Snyder said Rudy Gobert has a 102 degree fever. – 8:43 PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Quin Snyder says Hassan Whiteside went through shootaround, and the team planned to have him tonight if Gobert was absent, but he began to experience symptoms again after the shootaround. – 8:40 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks PA announced Jrue Holiday’s long two at 1:00 minute left in the quarter was changed to a three to make it 42-35 Milwaukee after one.
But of course, NBA live stats does not recognize that so some may still be seeing 41-35…. – 8:37 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Bucks up 41-35 after a quarter. 13 total 3s. Some of the Jrue 3s you live with, but some wide open ones for rollers. Raps were also briefly mystified by the Bucks’ zone. – 8:36 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Rudy Gobert, Hassan Whiteside, and Joe Ingles are all OUT for the Jazz tonight. Everyone else is AVAILABLE (including Udoka Azubuike). – 8:26 PM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Rudy Gobert and Hassan Whiteside are both out tonight. Joe is out in health and safety protocols and the rest of the team is available. – 8:20 PM

Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Rudy Gobert (non-Covid illness), Hassan Whiteside (concussion), and Joe Ingles (Covid protocols) are all out tonight.
Everyone else is available, including Udoka Azubuike. – 8:20 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Gobert, Whiteside, and Ingles are all out tonight.
Everyone else is available.
Dok going to have to defend Jokic? – 8:20 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
The camera should just follow Jrue on Fred. – 8:16 PM

Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
So excited for Jrue vs FVV – 8:11 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks starters tonight against the Raptors:
Jrue Holiday
Jordan Nwora
Wesley Matthews
Khris Middleton
Bobby Portis Jr. – 7:42 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Wesley Matthews is getting a start tonight or the #Bucks, joining Jrue Holiday, Jordan Nwora, Khris Middleton and Bobby Portis.

Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
Acting Milwaukee Bucks coach Darvin Ham says Jrue Holiday is “pound-for-pound the best perimeter defender in the (NBA) bar none.” – 6:23 PM
