SALT LAKE CITY – According to the Utah Jazz injury report, the team could be shorthanded when they face the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.

Second-year center Walker Kessler was listed as questionable on Tuesday but has been downgraded to doubtful as of Wednesday morning.

Rookie Keyonte George is also on the Jazz injury report, listed as probable with left foot soreness.

Jazz Look To Snap Losing Streak

The Jazz travel to Indiana looking to snap a difficult three-game losing streak.

After starting the season 2-3, the Jazz have lost consecutive games to the Orlando Magic, Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Chicago Bulls.

The Jazz’s -18.7 net rating on the road is the worst in the NBA. Three of the team’s four losses away from home have come by 17 points or more.

The Los Angeles Lakers, the Washington Wizards, and the Jazz are the only teams to start the season 0-4 on the road.

Pacers Have Clean Injury Report Against Jazz

The Pacers host the Jazz with a clean injury report.

The young roster is coming off a dominant 152-111 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Monday.

Indiana’s offense will present a major challenge for the slumping Jazz defense.

The 4-3 Pacers own the league’s best offensive rating at 120.4 while the Jazz have the third-worst defensive rating at 117.4.

The Pacers are led by fourth-year guard Tyrese Haliburton who is averaging 24.0 points and 11.7 assists per game.
