Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Gets starting nod
Fontecchio is in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Bucks.
Fontecchio will replace Lauri Markkanen (hand) in the starting five Friday. Fontecchio is averaging 9.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 31.0 minutes across his previous two starts.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Returns to bench
Fontecchio will not start in Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Fontecchio drew a spot start Monday in place of Lauri Markkanen (back) and scored 12 points over 33 minutes. However, he will return to his typical bench role with Markkanen back in action. In his last five appearances with the reserves, Fontecchio has averaged 12.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals across 19.4 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Scores 12 in spot start
Fontecchio closed Monday's 128-120 victory over the Kings with 12 points (4-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt), three assists and one rebound in 33 minutes.
Fontecchio picked up his second start of the season Monday, taking on elevated minutes as a replacement at small forward for the injured Lauri Markkanen (back). The rookie proved to be a useful option for those that streamed him for three-pointers, but he brought little else to the table and actively harmed managers' field-goal percentage. Despite the somewhat underwhelming line Monday, Fontecchio should be in store for another start if Markkanen remains sidelined again Wednesday versus the Trail Blazers.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Starting Monday
Fontecchio will start Monday versus the Kings with Lauri Markkanen (back) unavailable, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Fontecchio recently had a 23-point game over 30 minutes, so he's certainly someone to consider as a streamer, given the opportunity he'll see in a starting role. Joining him in the first unit will be Talen Horton-Tucker, Ochai Agbaji, Kelly Olynyk and Walker Kessler.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Hits for 23 off bench
Fontecchio posted 23 points (8-17 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal over 30 minutes off the bench during Monday's 119-115 loss to the Heat.
The 27-year-old rookie put together the best game of his brief NBA career, topping the 18 points he scored against the Warriors back on Dec. 7. Fontecchio has claimed a regular spot in the Utah rotation, playing at least 20 minutes in six of the last 11 games and averaging 8.7 points, 2.2 boards, 1.5 threes and 1.4 assists over that stretch. If his workload continues to climb over the final weeks of the season, he'll put himself on the fantasy radar in a lot of formats.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Scores career-high 17 points
Fontecchio posted 17 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three steals, two rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes during Thursday's 131-124 win over the Magic.
Fontecchio played at least 20 minutes for the fourth time over Utah's past five games and notched career highs in points and steals. When the undrafted rookie out of Italy sees at least 20 minutes (nine games), he's averaged 9.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists with 41/36/77 shooting splits.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Enters starting lineup
Fontecchio is starting against the Mavericks on Tuesday, according to Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein.
The Jazz will go smaller Tuesday evening with Walker Kessler out with an illness. Fontecchio is known for his perimeter shooting and has made five three-pointers over his last two games.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Goes for 16 points off bench
Fontecchio accumulated 16 points (5-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block over 26 minutes during Friday's 130-103 loss to the Thunder.
Fontecchio has not been a regular contributor for the Jazz, and he has scored in double digits off the bench just three times all season long. Regardless of the format, he doesn't produce enough to be a valuable fantasy contributor. There's a chance this outing was nothing more than an outlier, given he took advantage of the minutes he received in a blowout loss.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Remains in rotation Tuesday
Fontecchio logged zero points (0-7 FG, 0-5 3Pt), two assists and one steal in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 102-94 loss to San Antonio.
Fontecchio saw meaningful minutes for the seventh time in his past eight games, although his production tells another story. While he has been able to crack the rotation, his value remains limited, and that's putting it nicely. He is outside the top 400 over the eight-game span and can clearly be ignored in basically every fantasy format.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Will be available Friday
Fontecchio (foot) is available for Friday's contest against the Hawks, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Fontecchio missed Wednesday's matchup against Toronto due to left foot soreness and was initially listed as questionable for Friday. While the undrafted rookie has been cleared to return, he isn't expected to play many minutes, as he's made just five appearances since Dec. 26.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Questionable Friday
Fontecchio (foot) is questionable for Friday's game against Atlanta, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Fontecchio was unavailable Wednesday against Toronto due to left foot soreness, and his status for Friday's game is up in the air. His status shouldn't significantly impact Utah's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Sits Wednesday with sore foot
Fontecchio didn't play in Wednesday's 131-128 win over the Raptors due to a sore left foot.
The 27-year-old rookie from Italy hasn't been a regular part of head coach Will Hardy's rotation since late December, so his absence Wednesday likely didn't affect how the minutes were divvied up among the Jazz forwards. Fontecchio can be viewed as day-to-day heading into the Jazz's next game Friday against the Hawks.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Not listed on injury report
Fontecchio isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's matchup against the Cavaliers, Andy Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Fontecchio was sidelined for the team's previous contest due to an illness, but it appears he's moved past the aliment and will suit up Tuesday. However, he's not expected to be part of Utah's rotation, as he hasn't played in an NBA contest since Dec. 26.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Out against Memphis
Fontecchio (illness) is out of Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.
Fontecchio was not included in the initial injury report, but his absence shouldn't affect many fantasy rosters since he's only logging 9.0 minutes per game off the bench across 21 appearances this season. This will be his seventh straight game sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Plays minor role in return
Fontecchio (ankle) finished with two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes in Saturday's 123-97 loss to the Bucks.
Fontecchio recaptured a spot in head coach Will Hardy's rotation after missing the previous four games with a left ankle sprain. Before picking up the injury, Fontecchio had averaged 17.7 minutes per game over his first three appearances of December, but he could get squeezed out of a bit of playing time if Collin Sexton (hamstring) returns to the second unit at some point during the Jazz's upcoming three-game week....

Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Available Saturday
Fontecchio (ankle) has been cleared for Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Fontecchio will return from a four-game absence due to an ankle injury. Look for him to resume his usual role providing depth at forward assuming he avoids any setbacks with his ankle.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Upgraded to questionable
Fontecchio (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Bucks, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Fontecchio has missed four consecutive contests due to a left ankle sprain but has a chance to play Saturday. In the four games leading up to his injury, Fontecchio averaged 8.3 points in 16.0 minutes per game, so his return could spell fewer minutes for Talen Horton-Tucker and Malik Beasley.... See More ...

Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Won't play Thursday
Fontecchio (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Pelicans, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Fontecchio will miss a fourth straight game due to a left ankle sprain. The rookie's next chance to suit up will arrive Saturday in Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Jazz's Simone Fontecchio: Misses practice Wednesday
Fontecchio (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports.
Fontecchio has missed the last three games due to a left ankle sprain. The rookie forward missing practice doesn't bode well for his chances to play in Thursday's game against New Orleans. If Fontecchio is ruled out versus the Pelicans, his next opportunity to play will be Saturday's matchup against Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
