INSIDER – The Jazz will miss Marvin Williams tonight

This season Tyrone Corbin has been using Marvin Williams as a stretch 4 breaking out of the Jazz traditional flex offense during these periods.

Tonight the Jazz will be without Marvin as he has a procedure done on his nose.  Hopefully, he will be able to re-join the team in Dallas on Friday.

However, tonight the Jazz will really miss Marvin’s impact on offense.  Look over the only 5 man line-ups the Jazz have used more than 10 minutes this season.  The league average offensive rating is 103 but the Jazz as a team is just 92.

From the chart the Jazz only have 4 5 man line-ups that are above the league average.  Three of the four include Marvin playing the stretch 4 and the other is a garbage time line-up from when the Jazz were trailing my a considerable amount.

Hopefully, the return of Jeremy Evans can help and the debut of Trey Burke can ignite some open floor play.
