Last Wednesday, the Utah Jazz (13-11; 14-10 ATS) defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 125-112 as 8-point home favorites, snapping a five-game losing streak.

Rudy Gay (finger) will miss the Pacers game on Friday.

Gay was ruled out for at least two weeks on Nov. 17 and will be out again against the Pacers on Friday. For as long as Gay is out, Simone Fontecchio and Lauri Markanen should continue to see extended runs.

His next opportunity to play will be against the Pacers on Saturday.

Mike Conley (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Friday, according to Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune.

Conley will have missed seven consecutive games due to a lower leg strain, allowing Collin Sexton to spend more time in the starting lineup.

Given that Friday’s game is the first of a back-to-back for Utah, Conley could be aiming for a return against the Trail Blazers on Saturday.

Last Wednesday, the Indiana Pacers (12-9; 13-8 ATS) were defeated by the Sacramento Kings by a score of 137-114. Following a 114-100 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers at the start of their road trip, and a 116-115 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Tyrese Haliburton is listed as questionable for Friday’s game against the Jazz, according to Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com.

Haliburton was added to the injury report on Friday due to soreness in his left groin, leaving his status uncertain.

If he is ruled out, T.J. McConnell will likely take his place in the starting lineup, while Andrew Nembhard and Bennedict Mathurin will see increased playing time.
