SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will be without Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley tonight when they host the Sacramento Kings tonight.

The Jazz ruled Conley out early Saturday morning due to rest on the second night of a back-to-back after falling to the San Antonio Spurs Friday night on the road.

Conley played 31 minutes, but struggled to shoot the ball, knocking down 2-14 shots, scoring eight points, recording five steals, and handing out assists in the loss.

Then, roughly 45 minutes before tip-off the Jazz announced that Gobert would miss the game against the Kings due to a left foot first Metatarsal Phalangeal joint sprain.

Gobert also played 31 minutes in the loss recording 13 points, 16 rebounds, and five blocks in San Antonio.

Reserve guard Trent Forrest will also miss the game with a sprained wrist.

The Jazz won’t be the only team on the floor dealing injuries, however.

The Kings announced earlier in the day that starting big man Domantas Sabonis would miss tonight’s contest due to personal reasons. Moe Harkless and Jeremy Lamb are also listed as game-time decisions for the game.

The Jazz will also be without third-string center Udoka Azubuike who suffered a serious ankle injury Thursday night while playing for the Salt Lake City Stars.

That will leave the team with only one true center on the roster in Hassan Whiteside who had an impressive 13 points, 10 rebound double-double in just 16 minutes against the Spurs.

Bojan Bogdanovic also returns to the floor after missing Friday’s game with a leg bruise.

The Jazz and Kings will tip-off at 7 pm MT and can be heard on The Zone Sports Network. The game will be televised on AT&T SportsNet and FuboTV.
