Jazz's Rudy Gay: Leading scorer in road loss

Gay notched 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt), eight rebounds and two assists over 23 minutes during Sunday's 114-100 loss to Dallas. The veteran forward's 18 points led the Jazz on a night in which Donovan Mitchell couldn't get going and Rudy Gobert (leg) and Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) were both in street clothes. It was also Gay's best scoring effort since early January, and he'd scored in double digits only once in the prior 15 games coming into Sunday. While Utah's injuries might continue to get Gay a higher usage rate, it's tough to expect a repeat performance any time soon.

Jazz's Rudy Gay: Scores nine points off bench

Gay posted nine points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across 18 minutes during Monday's 114-106 loss to the Nets. Gay missed just one shot en route to his third straight game with at least nine points. The veteran forward has played at least 10 minutes in 13 straight games, but he figures to continue garnering an increased role as long as Bojan Bogdanovic (calf) is sidelined.

This season has not really gone the way that Rudy Gay wanted so far. Offseason heel surgery that caused him to sit out the Utah Jazz’s summer workouts, special Las Vegas training camp, all four preseason games, plus the first 14 games of the regular season. Subsequent soreness which made him inactive for another four games. A stretch of right knee pain followed by a non-COVID illness that cost him six consecutive games in February.

Jazz's Rudy Gay: Pedestrian numbers in return

Gay (knee/illness) finished with three points (1-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two assists and one rebound across 13 minutes Sunday in the Jazz's 118-114 win over the Suns. Back in action after missing the Jazz's previous six games with a sore right knee and an illness, Gay re-entered head coach Quin Snyder's rotation as a replacement for Eric Paschall, who didn't leave the bench. Gay could pick up a few extra minutes in the games to come now that he's healthy again, but he'll be little more than a deep-league option with Utah at full strength in the frontcourt.

Jazz's Rudy Gay: Could suit up Sunday

Gay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Suns with a non-COVID-19-related illness. A sore right knee has prevented Gay from playing in each of the past six games, but that injury looks to be a lesser concern than the illness as Sunday's 3:30 p.m. ET tipoff approaches. While that's good news for Gay, he still may need to prove his conditioning is up to par during pregame warmups before the Jazz sign off on making him available. If Gay can't go Sunday, both Eric Paschall and Danuel House would likely retain spots in head coach Quin Snyder's rotation as backup forwards.

Jazz's Rudy Gay: Available Sunday

Gay (knee/illness) will be available for Sunday's contest against the Suns, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports. Gay missed six straight games due to a sore right knee and is also dealing with a non-COVID illness, but the veteran is expected to be available Sunday for the first time since Feb. 4. He'll likely be limited in his return to action, but it's still a positive sign to see him clear of the injury report. Gay is averaging 8.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 20.0 minutes per game this season.
