  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Officially active

    Agbaji (back) will play in Wednesday's Summer League game against the Nuggets, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

    After being scratched from Monday's Summer League contest with lower back spasms, Agbaji was handed a probable designation ahead of Wednesday's tilt and will suit up for the Jazz. The 23-year-old will likely reclaim his starting role and remain one of Utah's top options Wednesday.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Expected to suit up Wednesday

    Agbaji (back) is probable for Wednesday's Summer League game versus the Nuggets, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Plays well against Memphis

    Agbaji produced 22 points (8-20 FG, 5-13 3PT, 1-2 FT) with 13 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 30 minutes in Thursday's 98-83 Summer League win against Memphis.

    Abaji continues to rebound and defend well, but his shot has eluded him so far. Coming into Thursday's contest, Agbaji was shooting 36.1 percent from the field over his previous two games. He'll be a name to watch this offseason, as the 2022 first-rounder is competing for a key role in his second season.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Ejected Sunday

    Agbaji was ejected in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Lakers after being assessed a pair of technical fouls, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Prior to being tossed early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup, Agbaji tallied eight points (4-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt), eight assists, a rebound and a steal in 27 minutes. The 22-year-old's ejection ends his rookie season in which he took on a starting role over his final 20 appearances. His role next season will likely depend on whether Jordan Clarkson (finger) exercises his player option for the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Pours in career-high 28 points

    Agbaji had 28 points (10-25 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Saturday's 118-114 win over the Nuggets.

    Agbaji led the Jazz in scoring Saturday, dropping a career-high 28 points. He has now scored in double-digits in six of the past seven games, making the most of his late-season opportunity. While he has proven he can score the basketball, his supporting stats remain quite underwhelming. The Jazz are building a nice young core, and although Agbaji is likely a piece of that, it's hard to see his role expanding too much next season once the team is fully healthy.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Pops for 22 points

    Agbaji totaled 22 points (7-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 38 minutes during Tuesday's 135-133 overtime loss to the Lakers.

    Agbaji recorded 20-plus points for the third time this season and notched his second-highest scoring outing of the campaign. Since being inserted into the starting lineup at the end of February (17 games), Agbaji has averaged 13.1 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.1 steals-plus-blocks with 40/36/87 shooting splits.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Contributes 20 points in loss

    Agbaji chipped in 20 points (8-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 36 minutes during Saturday's 121-113 loss to the Kings.

    Agbaji started off poorly in the contest, making just one of four shot attempts in the first quarter. He bounced back after that, however, and finished with a strong 8-for-15 shooting line that included a 3-for-7 mark from deep. Agbaji also swatted three shots in the contest to establish a new career-best mark.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Blows up for career-high 27 points

    Agbaji poured in a career-high 27 points (8-14 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block across 33 minutes in Monday's 128-120 win over the Kings.

    While Agbaji had started each of the previous eight games and hit double figures in scoring in the last four, he shot just 39 percent from the field in those contests and offered little in the way of supporting statistics. His outputs in the non-points categories were similarly lacking Monday, but Agbaji combined a spike in usage (22.8 percent) with improved efficiency en route to a new personal best in scoring column. While Agbaji shouldn't be expected to regularly replicate this kind of performance, he'll likely have a clear path to a 30-plus-minute role for at least another game or two while the statuses of Jordan Clarkson (finger), Lauri Markkanen (back) and Collin Sexton (hamstring) remain up in the air. The rookie is still probably best viewed as a streaming option for points and three-pointers, and his upside in those categories will likely take a hit to some degree as soon as Utah gets one of the three injured players back.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Encouraging line in victory

    Agbaji notched 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), one rebound and three assists over 36 minutes during Saturday's 118-117 victory over the Celtics.

    Agbaji put together a sold shooting performance, which was sorely needed amid Jordan Clarkson's (finger) absence. The highly touted Kansas product started the past eight games with mixed results, but Saturday's effort was the best stat line of the group. The slashing sharpshooter depends on success beyond the arc to pad his scoring, and although he's shot only 32.1 percent from downtown during his starting stint, his overall three-point percentage in his rookie season is about four points higher.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Scores 14 points in win

    Agbaji had 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt), two rebounds and one block over 31 minutes during Thursday's 131-124 victory over the Magic.

    With Jordan Clarkson (finger) and Collin Sexton (hamstring) sidelined, Agbaji has drawn five straight starts and is averaging 10.2 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals-plus-blocks in 27.0 minutes per game. It's been an underwhelming rookie campaign for the lottery pick, but it's nice to see him playing well in an expanded role during the stretch run.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Set to play Friday

    Agbaji (lower leg) will be available for Friday's game against Oklahoma City, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Agbaji exited Tuesday's game against the Spurs due to a right lower leg contusion, but he went through practice without restrictions Thursday and should be able to suit up against the Thunder. The 22-year-old has started in three of his last seven appearances and has averaged 10.0 points and 2.1 rebounds in 25.4 minutes per game during that time. His role against Oklahoma City will likely depend on whether Jordan Clarkson (thumb) is cleared to return.
