    Markkanen paced the Jazz in scoring, and his 13 rebounds were only one behind Walker Kessler for the team lead. He's now recorded a double-double in six of his last eight contests and has shot above 50 percent in five of his last six, continuing to build a strong case for the first All-Star nod of his career.

The power forward finished with a team-high 29 points and shot above 50 percent from three for the sixth straight contest.

    Markkanen returned to the floor after missing the last two contests due to injury. He has been on fire as of late, and Wednesday marked his third consecutive double-double. Markkanen has gone for over 20 points in 14 consecutive contests and is putting together the best season of his career. He has been a great fantasy option and will remain so as long as his role on offense continues.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Will be available Wednesday

    Markkanen (hip) is available for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Markkanen missed back-to-back games due to a hip injury and was initially listed as questionable for Wednesday, but the talented big man has since been cleared and will presumably return to the starting lineup against Los Angeles. The 6-foot-11 sharpshooter has been a revelation during his first season with the Jazz, averaging 24.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 34.2 minutes per game -- all career highs.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Deemed questionable Wednesday

    Markkanen (hip) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Clippers, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Markkanen has been listed as questionable in each of the last two games before being ruled out, so his listing doesn't really provide much information about his availability Wednesday. The team should provide another update on his status prior to the 9 PM ET tipoff, with Jarred Vanderbilt, Rudy Gay and Talen Horton-Tucker, among others, likely to see expanded run if he sits again.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Ruled out Monday

    Markkanen (hip) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

    Markkanen was considered a game-time decision for Monday's game as he continues to deal with a hip injury, and he'll be unavailable for a second consecutive matchup. Jarred Vanderbilt, Rudy Gay and Talen Horton-Tucker are candidates to see increased run against Minnesota.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Listed as questionable

    Markkanen (hip) is questionable for Monday's matchup against Minnesota, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Markkanen was sidelined for Saturday's loss to Philadelphia due to a hip injury and may miss a second straight game due to the issue. If he's sidelined again, Talen Horton-Tucker, Jarred Vanderbilt and Ochai Agbaji would be candidates for increased roles.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Drills 17 free throws in win

    Markkanen finished with 28 points (4-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 17-21 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes in Friday's 112-108 win over the Magic.

    Markkanen has made hay at the free-throw line over the Jazz's last two games, converting 29 of 35 attempts (82.8 percent) during that span to help bring his streak of 20-plus-point performances to 13. The 25-year-old remains in the thick of the conversation for a reserve spot in the All-Star Game while he's in the midst of a career-best season that has helped make the 22-23 Jazz surprisingly competitive in what was expected to be a rebuilding year.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Ruled out Saturday

    Markkanen (hip) will not play in Saturday's game against the 76ers, David Locke reports.

    Markkanen was tabbed as questionable for the contest after picking up a left hip contusion Friday and will ultimately be sidelined for Saturday's tilt. In his stead, Talen Horton-Tucker, Jarred Vanderbilt and Ochai Agbaji are all candidates to see expanded roles. Markkanen's next chance to play will come Monday in Minnesota.

  • Jazz's Lauri Markkanen: Questionable Saturday

    Markkanen is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the 76ers due to a left hip contusion, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Markkanen presumably suffered the injury in Friday's 112-108 victory over the Magic. He accumulated 28 points (4-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 17-21 FT), 12 rebounds, two rebounds, one steal and one block across 36 minutes in the contest. The 25-year-old's status will depend on how he is feeling closer to tipoff, but Talen Horton-Tucker and Ochai Agbaji would be candidates to see increased run if he ultimately has to sit out.
