The team’s regular-season officially starts tomorrow and expectations have grown for the team for this year, but that does not apply to some of Utah Jazz players’ heights.

The NBA is requiring team physicians to officially measure each player’s height and report it accurately. So no more fudging the numbers and due to that official heights have shrunk for Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Royce O’Neal, and many others.

Don’t worry about the Jazz’s third-year star, he seems to be doing just fine learning he has indeed lost a couple of inches.

Conley, Ingles, Dante Exum, Georges Niang, Miye Oni, Jarrell Brantley, Nigel Williams-Goss, Jeff Green, Ed Davis, and Stanton Kidd were all listed an inch shorter than their listed heights. Only Rudy Gobert, third-year center Tony Bradley, and new forward Bojan Bogdanovic were true to their listed heights.

The Utah Jazz will have its season and home-opener tomorrow against the Oklahoma City Thunder with tip-off set for 7 P.M.

We want to hear from you.
