What you need to know about the Jazz

The Jazz are also going to be without All-Stars Donovan Mitchell (concussion) and Rudy Gobert (calf) on Wednesday. Head coach Quin Snyder and reserve Danuel House Jr. are both in COVID-19 protocol. Utah has won 13 of its last 15 home games against Denver.
What you need to know about the Nuggets
Denver had its five-game winning streak snapped in a 130-115 loss at Minnesota on Tuesday. The Nuggets’ bench was outscored by Minnesota’s bench 47-12 during the first three quarters of the contest. Nikola Jokic led Denver with 21 points, 16 rebounds and eight assists in the loss.
Jokic is nearly averaging a triple-double this season, scoring 25.9 points, grabbing 13.8 rebounds and dishing out 7.8 assists per game. He was questionable to play against Minnesota on Tuesday due to a toe injury, but he was able to put together another impressive stat-line regardless.
