SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz announced on Tuesday that Lauri Markkanen would miss the upcoming road trip to rehab a hamstring injury.

Markkanen will not travel with the team as they head east for a game in Memphis and Minnesota.

After experiencing soreness last Friday, Markkanen was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain on Sunday.

He missed Utah’s last two games against the Pelicans. The Jazz won both matchups by a combined seven points.

Markkanen has played well in his 15 games played so far this year. He is top 25 in points and rebounds with averages of 23.7 and 8.7.
