SALT LAKE CITY – Jazz guard Trent Forrest left Utah’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers due to concussion-like symptoms.

The Clippers hosted the Jazz at Crypto.com Arena on Tuesday, March 29.

At halftime, Utah announced that Forrest wouldn’t return to the court in the second half.

“Trent Forrest (concussion like symptoms) will not return. He has left the arena for a local hospital for further testing,” the Jazz announced.

Forrest exited the game at the 8:57 mark of the second quarter after fellow Jazzman Rudy Gobert inadvertently made contact with the guard while trying to box out a Los Angeles defender.

The Florida State product appeared dazed under the basket following the contact.

TNT reported that Forrest’s hands were shaking as he exited the court and went to the locker room.

Utah owned a 42-23 lead when Forrest left the game.

Before exiting the game, Forrest had two points on 1-1 field goals. He added two rebounds and three assists. Forrest recorded a plus-10 rating during his seven minutes of action.

This season, 3.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per contest.

Jazz vs. Clippers

While Gobert is returning, the Jazz will still be without Danuel House Jr. and Bojan Bogdanovic against the Clippers who are missing their seventh and eighth games respectively.

The Jazz listed all three players as questionable when they released the injury report on Monday, but downgraded Bogdanovic and House Jr. shortly before tip-off.

Without House Jr. and Bogdanovic in the lineup, the Jazz are just 3-4 in their last seven but have lost four consecutive games.

The Jazz will also be without Hassan Whiteside who is missing his third consecutive game with a sprained foot.

“It’d be nice for us to get Bojan and Hassan [back],” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said of the Jazz’s long injury list. “Hassan has been a big part of what we’ve done, and House — he’s one of our two top perimeter defenders and has been elite at times.”

The matchup with the Clippers is the final stop on a six-game road trip that began with a win over the New York Knicks but quickly unraveled with losses in Brooklyn, Boston, Charlotte, and Dallas.

Veteran Greg Monroe signed a 10-day contract with the Jazz on Monday to help bridge the gap at center until Whiteside returns.

The Clippers will also take a step towards fulls strength as All-Star forward Paul George is set to return to the starting lineup.

George has missed the last 43 games with an elbow injury as the Clippers have slipped to the eighth seed in the West and will have to win a play-in game to qualify for the postseason.

The Clippers owned the fifth-best record in the West prior to George’s injury, but have steadily watched themselves fall in the standings in his absence.

LA has lost five consecutive games and eight of their last 10 outings.

Utah’s game against Los Angeles is broadcast on TNT and The Zone Sports Network.
