SALT LAKE CITY – Rudy Gay and Elijah Hughes joined the list of Utah Jazz players in the NBA’s Health & Safety protocols amid the surge of COVID-19 cases in the league.

Hughes last played on January 7 against the Toronto Raptors. He missed Utah’s game against the Pacers on January 8 due to illness. Hughes has recorded 3.0 points. 0.9 rebounds, and 0.4 assists in 10 games this season.

The Jazz are near the end of a five-game road trip that has been plagued by COVID-19 and injuries. Utah has gone 2-2 through the first four games of the trip.
