  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Just misses double-double

    Markkanen logged 21 points (5-14 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 9-10 FT), nine rebounds and six assists across 37 minutes during Thursday's 115-107 loss to Charlotte.

    The 26-year-old forward just missed his 19th double-double of the season. Markkanen got a new frontcourt partner for this one as rookie Taylor Hendricks made his first start of the season, but it didn't seem to impact his production. Markkanen drained multiple three-pointers for the ninth straight game, averaging 21.6 points, 7.8 boards, 3.2 threes and 2.1 assists over that stretch.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Struggles from field

    Markkanen had 20 points (6-23 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 14 rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Thursday's 140-137 loss to the Warriors.

    Markkanen converted just two of his 12 attempts from two-point range during Thursday's loss. However, the star forward's team-high 14 rebounds helped him post his 18th double-double of 2023-24. Markkanen has yet to score fewer than 10 points in 46 appearances this season.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Leads all scorers in win

    Markkanen posted 33 points (12-18 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal over 36 minutes during Tuesday's 124-117 win over the Thunder.

    Markkanen scored at least 30 points for the second time in the past 10 games, recording his 16th double-double of the season. Coming off a breakout season in 2022-23, Markkanen has improved his production this year. He has been a first-round player in nine-category leagues, averaging 23.8 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 3.3 three-pointers. Barring any significant personnel changes, Markkanen's value should remain relatively steady moving forward.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Double-double in Thursday's loss

    Markkanen posted 28 points (10-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Thursday's 127-124 loss to the 76ers.

    It's the 16th double-double of the season for Markkanen. The 26-year-old forward has gone nearly a year without failing to sink at least one three-pointer in a game -- the last time he came up empty from beyond the arc was March 3 of last season against the Thunder -- and he's drained multiple threes in 15 of 17 games since the beginning of January, averaging 23.8 points, 8.8 boards, 3.3 treys and 2.4 assists over that stretch while shooting 50.8 percent from the floor and 43.8 percent from long distance.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Comes up short of double-double

    Markkanen chipped in 13 points (4-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Monday's 147-114 loss to Brooklyn.

    Markkanen didn't have a good shooting performance and finished with only 13 points in 12 shots, but he also hauled in single-digit rebounds for the fourth time across his last five outings. Even though that might sound like a rough stretch on paper, Markkanen continues to perform well as Utah's primary offensive weapon. Over his last 10 appearances, he's averaging 24.3 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

    Markkanen amassed 29 points (11-20 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and three steals across 33 minutes during Thursday's 123-108 win over the Wizards.

    The 26-year-old forward led all scorers on the night as he set a new season high in made three-pointers.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Delivers double-double

    Markkanen continues to produce on both ends of the court for the Jazz, and the big man now has five double-doubles over his last seven outings -- a span in which he's scored 20 or more points each time as well. His two-way contributions make him a strong fantasy option across all formats, and he's averaging 25.4 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game over 10 appearances this month.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Jazz-Warriors postponed Wednesday

    Markkanen posted 32 points (10-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 10-10 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 28 minutes during Monday's 132-105 victory over the Pacers.

    Markkanen was outstanding Monday, missing just five shots from the field and extending his run of games with 20 or more points to six contests.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Shines with 29 points in win

    Markkanen provided 29 points (8-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 10-11 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, one block and two steals across 33 minutes during Saturday's 132-125 victory over the Lakers.

    Markkenen was stellar throughout the contest but went to the locker room briefly in the second half due to a hand injury. He was able to finish the game, though he scored just four points in the fourth quarter. The Jazz have won five consecutive games thanks to Markkanen's excellent play, and the veteran put up excellent numbers against a brutal schedule, including the Nuggets, Bucks and Sixers. With excellent play throughout the starting five, the fantasy stocks of Utah's producers are trending upward.

    Markkanen's multi-dimensional output has been a critical piece of Utah's recent success. The Jazz have gone 9-2 since Markkanen's full-time return, and with the rest of the roster playing at a high level, Utah's upward trend is likely to continue.
