SALT LAKE CITY – Second-year guard Trent Forrest carried a depleted Jazz roster with some early offense during Utah’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns hosted the Jazz on Monday, January 24.

Forrest started the game as Utah’s five traditional starters and Joe Ingles all missed the contest in the Valley of the Sun.

The Florida product helped keep the Jazz afloat during the first 12 minutes of game time.

At the end of the opening quarter, the Jazz trailed the Suns, 31-21. Forrest led the Jazz with seven points on 3-3 field goals, including 1/1 from beyond the arc. He added one steal in nine minutes on the court.

This season, Forrest is averaging 1.9 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 9.4 minutes per contest.

Utah’s game against Phoenix is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA TV, and The Zone Sports Network.
