SALT LAKE CITY – Forward Danuel House Jr. left the West/East showdown between the Milwaukee Bucks and Utah Jazz after suffering a knee injury.

The Jazz hosted the Bucks at Vivint Arena on Monday, March 14.

House went to the floor with a left injury at the 4:59 mark of the opening quarter.

After House went to the court, the Jazz called a full timeout. House exited the hardwood and went to the locker room.

A few minutes later, the Jazz announced that the forward would not return because of the injury.

Before leaving the game, House had three points on 1-3 field goals. He added one rebounds in seven minutes of action.

This season, House is averaging 6.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game in 18 games with the Jazz.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Utah Jazz

Though the Jazz want to consider themselves championship contenders, they may not roll out a championship-worthy roster when they host Milwaukee.

Rudy Gobert was listed as questionable against the Bucks after missing Saturday’s win with an injured big toe on his left foot.

Bojan Bogdanovic meanwhile wasn’t listed on the team’s injury report Sunday but didn’t go through shootaround Monday morning due to a left calf strain. Bogdanovic played Saturday night after missing Friday’s game in San Antonio with a leg bruise.

Bucks Bringing Back Key Piece

While the Jazz were unsure of who would be available against Milwaukee, the Bucks welcomed back a key piece of their championship roster in Brook Lopez.

Lopez hadn’t played since opening night, underwent back surgery in early December, and has been rehabilitating the injury over the last three months.

Without Lopez, the Bucks defense had fallen outside of the top 10 in the NBA this season for the first time under coach Mike Budenholzer.

Former Jazzman George Hill is expected to return to the Bucks lineup after missing the last 16 games with neck soreness.

Despite the injuries, the Bucks own the second-best record in the East behind the Miami Heat.

Utah’s game against Milwaukee is broadcast on ESPN, AT&T SportsNet, and The Zone Sports Network.
