Markkanen (hand) ended with 25 points (6-22 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 11-12 FT), nine rebounds and two assists across 36 minutes during Monday's 117-103 loss to Phoenix.

Markkanen was back on the floor Monday after missing two straight games due to a hand injury. With the Jazz slightly behind the pace in the bid for the 10th seed in the Western Conference, Markkanen could be a shutdown candidate if the team prioritizes the health of key players, but Utah has yet to clarify its plans one way or the other. For now, fantasy managers should keep an eye on Markkanen's status on a game-by-game basis, though the forward should continue to produce at a high level whenever he's active.
