UPDATE: March 11, 7:59 p.m. — Gobert is OFFICIALLY out this time. I swear.

UPDATE: March 11, 7:43 p.m. — Gobert is not listed as the starter so safe to say he’s not going to play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday. Bradley will start in his place.

UPDATE: March 11, 7:08 p.m. — Gobert and Mudiay haven’t been ruled out yet and remain questionable to play vs. the Thunder. Don’t shoot the messenger.

UPDATE: March 11, 6:43 p.m. — Gobert and Mudiay have both been ruled out vs. the Thunder on Wednesday. My favorite value is Tony Bradley at $3,200 and Steven Adams gets a nice boost for the Thunder at $5,600 on DraftKings. Hard not to like the Thunder at -3 at home considering the Jazz are without their defensive anchor and haven’t been playing well defensively anyway.

Utah Jazz C Rudy Gobert and PG Emmanuel Mudiay are both questionable to play in Wednesday’s game vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder due to illness. Both Gobert and Mudiay missed shootaround in the morning.

Gobert ($7,500) still has a chance to play and Mudiay hasn’t been playing much recently with Mike Conley ($5,500) playing well. If Gobert is sidelined, this makes the Thunder front court more appealing. Steven Adams ($5,600) is already pretty cheap on the six-game slate. Tony Bradley ($3,200) becomes chalk value if Gobert is ruled out. Mudiay’s absence doesn’t impact much. If he returns, maybe he cuts into Jordan Clarkson ($4,100) a bit, but I can’t imagine it impacts Conley or Donovan Mitchell ($7,300).
