Boris Diaw Headshot

Diaw will start at power forward Wednesday against the Knicks, Jazz radio announcer David Locke reports.

Diaw, who has started 22 games so far this season, will join the starting rotation Wednesday night, sending Joe Johnson to the bench and bumping Gordon Hayward to small forward. As a starter the veteran has averaged 4.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists in just over 21 minutes a contest.

Nikola Vucevic Headshot

Vucevic recorded 14 points (6-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and one steal across 30 minutes of action in Wednesday's 109-102 loss to the Hornets.

Vucevic came just two assists shy of recorded his first triple-double of the season en route to one of his better fantasy lines on the year as he met or surpassed each of his statistical averages on the season. The Magic center has clearly benefited from the Orlando frontcourt becoming less crowded since their deadline trade to get rid of Serge Ibaka. Vucevic is averaging 18.8 points per game in 11 contests since the trade took place versus just 13.9 PPG prior to the deal.

Miguel Gonzalez Headshot

Gonzalez allowed four runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out four over 4.1 innings Wednesday against the Athletics, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez made his first start since returning from the World Baseball Classic. The right-hander isn't going to be overpowering hitters so there's a lot of pitch-to-contact in his game. Sometimes that contact is hard and turns into hits. To Gonzalez's credit, he didn't write off the outing as just getting his work in. He admitted to Van Schouwen that he needs to execute pitches.
10:11 pm (EST)
Matt Andriese Headshot

Andriese struck out six but allowed three earned runs on seven hits over 4.2 innings Wednesday against Triple-A Rochester, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Rays' projected No. 5 starter wasn't exactly at his most impressive considering the lower level of competition but did get his work in. Andriese threw 86 pitches overall, keeping him on schedule with his throwing program. He's been a mixed bag this spring, with his solid 2.84 ERA offset by a .345 BAA and 1.89 WHIP.
10:11 pm (EST)
Ryan Strome Headshot

Strome (upper body) won't return to Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

Strome sustained the injury in the second period of Wednesday's tilt when he awkwardly collided with the Rangers' Michael Grabner. He immediately dropped his glove and stick while heading to the bench after the collision, and went to the locker room shortly thereafter. More information regarding the severity of the 23-year-old pivot's upper-body ailment should be released ahead of Friday's matchup with the Penguins.
10:10 pm (EST)
Joe Johnson Headshot

Johnson will play a reserve role in Wednesday's matchup against the Knicks, Jazz's radio announcer David Locke reports.

The Jazz will opt to go with a bigger lineup for this matchup by inserting Boris Diaw at power forward, and sliding Gordon Hayward down to small forward. Johnson started the previous four games, as the Jazz opted to go with a smaller lineup. However, they lost their last three, which may have played a factor in the bigger lineup Wednesday. Johnson will presumably see a slightly lighter workload off the bench.
10:10 pm (EST)
Daniel Robertson Headshot

Robertson has a chance to make the team as a utility infielder, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 23-year-old shortstop prospect is hitting only .220 over 41 at-bats but Matt Duffy's extended recovery from heel surgery has potentially opened up a spot for him to start the season. Robertson's right-handed bat renders him particularly valuable in the short term and he could be competing with Michael McKenry or Nick Franklin for a roster spot as spring training heads into its stretch run.
10:04 pm (EST)
Marco Belinelli Headshot

Belinelli scored 20 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT) with three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 21 minutes in a 109-102 win over the Magic on Wednesday.

Belinelli's 20 points led all bench scorers in the game, and it was his highest scoring night dating all the way back to a 22 point game on Nov. 19. An inordinate number of free throws allowed the Italian guard to rack up points quickly and efficiently-- his eight attempts were his most of the season. Belinelli is a decent NBA bench player as he consistently gets over 20 minutes of run, but he has done little to prove his fantasy value in even deeper leagues over the course of the season. It's probably safest to consider this game an outlier and move along.
10:02 pm (EST)
Alex Cobb Headshot

Cobb gave up three earned runs on six hits, a walk and a wlid pitch over 5.1 innings in Tuesday's 5-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Pirates.

The right-hander improved as the game went on, overcoming the first-inning home run he gave up to John Jaso and the wild pitch that allowed Jose Usuna to score in the fourth. Cobb described himself as starting off "a little timid" and "too mechanical" before settling in. The 29-year-old was able to demonstrate improved command of his fastball and got his typical assortment of groundball outs with his changeup as the game went on. Cobb also worked on his curveball early in counts as he continues to refine his mechanics in anticipation of serving as the team's No. 3 starter.
9:55 pm (EST)
Kemba Walker Headshot

Walker posted 22 points (8-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists and three rebounds across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 109-102 win over the Magic.

Walker finally eclipsed the 20 point mark after failing to do so in his previous three games, but at 38.1 percent from the field, he wasn't all that efficient in getting there. The All Star point guard has failed to break 40 percent from the field in any his past six contests, meaning we can safely classify this recent stretch as a shooting slump. Despite his shot being off, Walker distributed the ball the best he has in four games-- he recorded just one turnover against his seven assists.
