The Detroit Pistons and Utah Jazz begin their two-game cross-conference series on Wednesday night at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Is Rudy Gay , Cade Cunningham PLAYING today?
The Pistons are 11.5-point road underdogs with a total of 228.0 points. Cade Cunningham (leg) and Isaiah Stewart (foot) are both out, while Saddiq Bey (ankle) is doubtful. The Jazz, on the other hand, will almost certainly be without Mike Conley (knee) and Rudy Gay (hand) for the first time this season.

Cunningham (lower leg) will miss the rest of the season due to a shin stress fracture.
Cade Cunningham of the Pistons will miss at least the next four games due to left shin soreness, the team announced prior to Saturday’s game. He’ll be re-evaluated following the Pistons’ game against the Lakers in Los Angeles on Friday.
The second-year guard will miss Saturday’s game against the Boston Celtics, Monday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, and the following week’s games against the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.
Saddiq Bey returned to Detroit on Monday to receive treatment for a sprained right ankle, indicating that the forward will miss the Pistons’ remaining three road games.
Saddiq Bey will miss games in Denver on Tuesday, Utah on Wednesday, and Phoenix on Friday while returning to Detroit to continue his rehab program.
According to the Jazz, Rudy Gay will be out for at least two weeks, as announced on Thursday.
Rudy Gay underwent an MRI, which revealed a sprain of his left hand’s third finger MCP joint. He’ll be evaluated again in about two weeks.
Mike Conley is listed as a QUES for Wednesday’s game against the Jazz.
Ailment to the lower left leg Conley’s injury in Saturday’s win over the Trail Blazers will keep him out for at least two weeks, but Jazz coach Quin Snyder says the veteran point guard could return sooner.
He’ll almost certainly miss the first two games of the week, as well as at least half of the weekend back-to-back set.
