The Utah Jazz have won nine of their 13 games in the NBA 2020-21 season so far, and are currently third in the Western Conference.
On the other hand, the Pelicans are struggling at the moment, finding themselves in 12th place with a poor 5-7 record.
As far as injuries are concerned, both teams have almost full rosters and will be expected to feature the same starting 5s that they had last time around.
