One year and four days after that game, he was sidelined again. This time it was a stress reaction, a weakening of a bone that is often a precursor to a stress fracture. “I know the rod’s in there to be able to protect my bone, and it’s supposed to take pressure off my shin so that with that rod in there, my leg will never break,” Holiday says. “But to have the reaction kind of on the side, it was weird and frustrating because I thought the hardest part was over. Being injured and having to sit out, not knowing why this is happening, and then this kind of hit. It was … yeah, it was frustrating.”
By all accounts, trade talks for Jeff Teague and Jrue Holiday went nowhere; the asking prices were too high, and the Jazz are confident with Dante Exum ready to resume his career next season. But this team is a decent point guard away from being really good. Expect Utah to sniff around again in June, perhaps dangling its draft pick as bait. Even with all three of Mack, Burke and Raul Neto under contract for next season, Utah needs a quality veteran presence to hedge against the fact Exum is 20, massively inexperienced and coming off knee surgery.
