  • The Jazz Injuries

Collin Sexton will be re-evaluated in one week after an MRI on Thursday revealed a mild right hamstring strain, according to Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune.

Sexton suffered a hamstring injury in the second half of Wednesday’s 124-123 victory over the Warriors. With Mike Conley (lower leg) expected to return Friday, Sexton is expected to return to the bench once he recovers from his own injury.

In nine games, the ex-Cavaliers guard averaged 16.9 points, 5.0 assists, and 2.0 rebounds in 30.0 minutes.

Lauri Markkanen (illness) will not take the floor for Saturday’s meeting with the Nuggets.

Simone Fontecchio has been downgraded from questionable to out due to a left ankle sprain. The rookie forward’s chance to suit up will be today’s game against the Nuggets.
