- Collin Sexton
According to Sarah Todd of The Deseret News, Sexton will be out for at least a week due to a hamstring injury.
Sexton was unable to practice Monday due to a hamstring injury, and he will miss the next four games for Utah before being re-evaluated. While he has not suffered a setback since missing seven games with a hamstring injury in December, he will rest, treat, and strengthen over the next week.
The Utah Jazz (19-20; 21-18 ATS) are on a four-game losing streak after falling 126-123 at home to the Miami Heat on Saturday.
After a disappointing three-game road trip that ended with a heartbreaking loss at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, the Jazz disappointed their fans on New Year’s Eve. Tyler Herro’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer proved decisive.
Utah shot 43.2% from the field (17-for-40 from long range), while the Heat shot 50.6%. In the paint, the Jazz were outscored 54-32. Lauri Markkanen led Utah with 29 points and 14 rebounds, Jordan Clarkson had 22 points and three assists, and Malik Beasley added 17 points off the bench.
