SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will host the Golden State Warriors in a game that could have Play-In Tournament implications.
The Jazz currently own the 11th seed in the West with a 26-27 record.
The Warriors sit one spot ahead of the Jazz in the 10th seed with a record of 25-25.
Jazz Turn New Page In Season
The Jazz will have a different look over the final 29 games of the season after trading Kelly Olynyk, Simone Fontecchio, and Ochai Agbaji at last week’s trade deadline.
Rookie Taylor Hendricks recorded 18 minutes in the absence of the veterans recording three points, eight rebounds, and a block as the Jazz fell to the Phoenix Suns.

First-round pick Brice Sensabaugh has also been called up from the G League but was unavailable against Phoenix with a left hip injury.
Sensabaugh’s status has been upgraded to available ahead of Monday’s matchup with the Warriors.
Warriors Look To Gain Ground On Jazz
The Warriors will look to extend their half-game advantage in the standings over the Jazz when they travel to Salt Lake City.
After dropping to 19-24, their worst record of the season, Golden State has won six of their last seven games including four in a row.
