To help account for the loss of Bojan Bogdanovic (wrist), the Jazz may look to play faster when the season resumes next week.
Bogdanovic underwent season-ending surgery on his right wrist in May, which leaves a hole in the Jazz starting lineup. Royce O'Neale, who was already starting, stands to take on an increased role and Joe Ingles could be back with the starters. As for accounting for the production lost due to Bogdanovic's injury, Utah will look to pick up the pace offensively. "We’ve tried to play that way in practice and push the ball," Ingles said. “Everyone can handle, everyone can push, everyone can rebound the ball. … I think it can be a really dangerous team playing like that." At the time of the stoppage the Jazz ranked 24th in the NBA in pace, and the change in approach could prove beneficial for the likes of Ingles, Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell. Jul 23 1:03 pm (EST)
