The Utah Jazz may have their last best chance to break their current losing streak on Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors. Anthony Slater reported on Twitter/X that star point guard Steph Curry will be out for the game. It's a planned rest day, and the Warriors are going to be without their captain. Not only that, but the team may be without Jonathan Kuminga and Andrew Wiggins, who as of Saturday night were listed as questionable.

Considering the Jazz haven't won a game in 11 tries, with their last win coming on March 16th against the Atlanta Hawks, the fact that the Jazz still have a shot to snap the skid is incredible. This has been the worst team in the NBA since the trade deadline and with only three wins in two months, that title of 'worst team' was truly earned.

But with Curry out for sure due to a rest day, the Jazz have a chance. Though, like all things this season, it won't be easy.

Not only will Curry be out for the Warriors and maybe Kuminga and Wiggins, arguably three of their top guys, but the Jazz will be without five of their six best players. Lauri Markkanen, Walker Kessler, John Collins, and Jordan Clarkson are all out for the Jazz, and Kris Dun may be as well.

That means the first, fourth, fifth, and sixth-best Jazz players respectively are out, with Dunn (the third-best) possibly out as well. Leaving only the second-best, Collin Sexton, to lead a group of rookies and castoffs into action. The Jazz are a mess right now and it's likely we'll see some pretty awful basketball but with five games left, and no easier game than this one, if the Jazz don't step up on Sunday, they will likely end the season on a 16-game losing streak.
