Boy, 5, found safe but sleepy after leaving school, boarding public bus

SOUTH SALT LAKE — After a kindergartener in South Salt Lake slipped away from school, hopped on a public bus in search of a doctor and woke up at the end of the line, the school is creating a new policy to monitor children set to go home sick.

When the boy reported he didn't feel well on Nov. 6, staff members in the front office of Lincoln Elementary sent him back to his classroom to get his coat and backpack, said Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley.

The 5-year-old, whose name has not been released, decided not to wait for his grandfather to pick him up. He set out, he later told his mom, to go find a doctor.

School surveillance video released by the district shows a child with a backpack and black coat with a hood on striding out of the school and passing by a playground. The footage initially gave administrators the impression the boy was on foot in the busy suburb of Salt Lake City.

"That was a scary moment," Horsley said. "These are our kids, too, and we care about them deeply."

Six Granite School District employees, plus school security officers and local police, combed the neighborhood for about an hour until he was found.

The district later learned the boy had walked down the street to a bus stop on 3900 South and boarded in front of a woman. The Utah Transit Authority bus driver didn't ask any questions because the kindergartener appeared to be traveling with an adult, said UTA spokesman Marc Bowman.

Children are permitted to ride buses without a pass until they turn 6, he noted.

After making a final stop in West Valley City, the driver examined the bus before locking it, which is an agency policy, and found the sleeping boy in the back roughly 10 miles from where he boarded.

"We're glad the operator followed protocol," Bowman said, adding that it is extremely rare for a child to be found alone on a bus at the end of its route.

UTA police officers delivered the child back to the school, Bowman said.

The district said in a prepared statement that the incident presented "a new and unique concern as younger students are not prone to leaving school campus," adding that its doors are locked from the outside, but not the inside, in case of a fire or other safety issues.

The school's new protocol will ensure children are accompanied outside the classroom, with Horsley noting the school has enough teacher's aides make sure an adult can go with a sick child to the office and be sure the student stays where they need to be.

The boy's mother said in a written statement released by the district that she didn't want other parents to experience the fear felt during the ordeal. She added that she was satisfied with a new school policy announced Friday. She was not named in the statement.

Frustration mounts in Jazz locker room as losses pile up, but team tries to remain upbeat

BROOKLYN — No, there isn’t any locker room tension.

Beef among teammates is nonexistent.

And honestly, members of the Utah Jazz and the coaching staff are trying to stay upbeat.

But no matter how hard you try, losing never becomes easy.

Especially not when playing professional basketball is your day job.

After suffering yet another road loss Friday night in Brooklyn, 118-107, players were visibly disappointed in the visitor’s locker room at Barclays Arena with the latest effort.

The decision to rule out Ricky Rubio (Achilles soreness) and Thabo Sefolosha (knee soreness) on game day left a big hole in a roster that’s already dealing with the absence of Rudy Gobert, Joe Johnson and Dante Exum.

Competing with that many guys out was too much to handle and it showed.

“It’s tough right now,” said Jazz forward Joe Ingles. “We’re missing some big pieces of our team. It’s frustrating because we played hard and no one’s out there not trying, but it’s frustrating because we can’t get over that hump right now. We just need to stick together.”

Jazz coach Quin Snyder is doing all he can to keep the guys on the right path. And he’s not just pumping their heads up with fluff, either. He’s really trying to break the losing cycle with stronger game plans and more attention to detail, but injuries are robbing the team of its talent.

Utah (6-10) has dropped back-to-back road games against the New York Knicks and Nets.

On Saturday the Jazz play the Magic in Orlando then against the Sixers in Philly on Monday. The road doesn’t get any easier, either, as they play the league’s hardest schedule in the month of December. Hopefully the injured players can return sooner than later.

“I can’t get caught up in it first of all because I’m the one that sets the tone for them,” Snyder said. “I think, it’s easy to talk about staying positive and those things.

“It’s not enough, we have to give them opportunities in which to do that and that requires adjustments and players have to feel there’s a path and that’s what we’re trying to do and it requires other guys not just to pick up their games but sometimes change their game and to tweak what they’re doing, sometimes to do a little more or a little less.”

The Jazz need a spark. A jolt. Something to boost the morale of the team.

Rookie Donovan Mitchell has been the lone bright spot with his stellar play, but even he has things to work on such as better decision-making.

Utah just can’t seem to shake that injury bug. It’s not an excuse, but reality.

“We’ve got important guys that are out for a long time and that kind of changes our way to play,” said Raul Neto. “We’re supposed to be a defensive team but Rudy’s out so we’ve got to figure out another way to be a good defensive team and I think it takes time.”

The system is proven and so is Snyder — based off his 51-win team last season — but now it’s all about patience. You can never predict injuries. Confidence isn’t tangible either.

Rodney Hood says the Jazz badly need a win but as much as losing seven of the last eight games hurts, he still sees light at the end of the tunnel.

“I know people are probably going crazy right now, but we’ll be fine,” Hood said. “We’ll get back on track and we’ll start winning games. Obviously, we’ve got some guys out, but we’re going to keep fighting.”

Jazzman Nate Wolters stays ready, gets call to play vs. Nets

BROOKLYN — Nate Wolters arrived at his New York hotel here around 9:30 p.m. Thursday night.

After playing in Santa Cruz, California, Wednesday for the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League, the Utah Jazz's two-way player received a call-up to the NBA.

So, he hopped on a six-hour flight to fulfill his latest professional obligation.

Wolters participated in Friday’s shootaround with the Jazz then played three minutes in Utah’s 118-107 loss to Brooklyn.

He’s used to the non-traditional process and it doesn’t bother him one bit.

“I’m on a two-way contract so I’ve kind of got to be ready whenever,” Wolters said. “I just take it day by day, each day and just play hard.”

The Jazz signed Wolters to a two-way contract in September. He has played in five G League games for the Stars, for whom he averages 14.6 points, 7.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds while playing nearly 35 minutes per night.

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound guard says the consistent playing time helps for those moments when the Jazz might need him to fill in.

“I just try to bring that energy and be positive on the trip and if my name’s called, just be ready and play hard,” Wolters said.

“It’s kind of the way the contract is, you’ll never know what team you’ll be on,” he added. “But yeah, with the injuries, it made sense for me to be with them on the road trip.”

D’ANGELO RUSSELL UPDATE: Nets guard D’Angelo Russell underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Friday. He initially suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter of last Saturday’s loss in Utah after scoring 26 points in 33 minutes. Nets general manager Sean Marks said there is still no timetable for his return.

“This is the direction that’s best for D’Angelo this coming season and also long-term,” Marks said. “We’re not going to speculate on a timetable. Obviously, he’s going to miss some time with this but it’ll be somewhat irresponsible to come back and say he’s going to miss 'x' amount of weeks.”

NO RUBIO, NO THABO: Starting point guard Ricky Rubio (right Achilles soreness) and veteran forward Thabo Sefolosha (right knee soreness) didn’t play against Brooklyn. Jazz coach Quin Snyder said the injuries aren’t necessarily external and won’t require surgeries, but that the decisions were made to prevent any long-term damage.

“You want to be smart,” Snyder said. “Especially with what we’re dealing with, the last thing we need is for Ricky to go out there and show his toughness and play which is what he wants to do.”

ORLANDO MAGIC: During the 2016-17 season, the Jazz swept Orlando 2-0. The Jazz won on the road 87-74 on Nov. 11, 2016, then at home 114-107 on Jan. 14, 2017. Orlando (8-7) should be well rested with a few days off after a four-game West Coast road swing. The Magic went 1-4 during the trip with its lone win against Phoenix. Jonathon Simmons, Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier are all averaging at least 15 points per game. The Jazz and Magic will play at 5 p.m. Saturday in the Amway Center.

Utah Jazz's road drought continues as it falls to Brooklyn Nets 118-107 without 5 players

BROOKLYN — Lying in a hospital bed from a Manhattan location Friday night, injured Brooklyn Nets guard D’Angelo Russell tweeted a photo of himself before his team tipped off against the Utah Jazz.

“Tuned in Let’s Go Nets! #BrooklynGrit” he posted.

Even without their young leader, the Nets were still able to hand the Jazz their sixth consecutive road loss, 118-107, at Barclays Center.

Russell underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee before the game to help with a left knee contusion he suffered last weekend in Salt Lake City.

Utah remains the league’s lone team without a road win and has lost seven of its past eight games.

“We were missing assignments defensively and once we got that down pat, we couldn’t stay in front of nobody so that was uncharacteristic of us, but we’ve got one tomorrow to get this bad taste out of our mouth,” said Jazz guard Rodney Hood, who ended up with 17 points. “We need a win bad.”

To Utah’s credit, key members Ricky Rubio (right Achilles soreness) and Thabo Sefolosha (right knee soreness) were kept out of the game, in addition to previously injured stars Rudy Gobert (tibia contusion), Joe Johnson (wrist) and Dante Exum (shoulder) who still couldn’t play.

Realistically, the team was only nine players deep with two-way guard Nate Wolters filling in on short notice.

“There’s a bit of realism in this,” said Jazz coach Quin Snyder. “Thabo was a big matchup for us tonight, he couldn’t play. Our point guard couldn’t play, Ricky Rubio. Rudy’s out.

“Those are times where you need even more from other people,” he added. "It’s not an excuse but our team has to realize in those moments that the margin of error is much smaller.”

Utah fell behind by as many as 22 points but used a 31-24 run in the third quarter to trim the deficit to single digits and make the game competitive.

Brooklyn shot a season-high 50. 6 percent from the field and had a career-best performance from Spencer Dinwiddie who finished with 25 points, eight assists, five boards, two steals and zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

“I think as a starter as a point guard in my position you try to lead,” Dinwiddie said. “I didn’t do anything different because of his (D’Angelo Russell) injury. I would like to think we won for him though because our heart goes out to him, he is our teammate and our brother. We feel for him at this time. A lot of us have had injuries and things of that nature.”

Without Rubio, rookie Donovan Mitchell started at point guard for the first time of his career with Rodney Hood, Joe Ingles, Jonas Jerebko and Derrick Favors.

Mitchell nearly finished with a triple-double with 15 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Raul Neto came off the bench to contribute a career-high 22 points and seven boards. The stats didn’t matter to Neto, though.

“Of course, I’m not happy we lost the game but it’s good to have minutes and it’s good to play well,” Neto said. “I think (about) working hard every day. We travel a lot, which makes it hard to have practice and play 5-on-5 with the team because we’re always traveling or it’s a day off but I’ve got to go on the court and do my job and that’s what I’ve been doing since last year.”

The Jazz fell to 6-10 and look to pick up a win in Orlando on Saturday. The team is searching for answers as things are seemingly falling apart with all the injuries, defensive mishaps and missed opportunities.

“We had some offensive possessions where I thought we had some good looks, some layups we missed,” Snyder said. “We just got beat tonight.”

Utah at Washington football: How to watch, stream and attend the game

THE BASICS


UTAH (5-5, 2-5) at No. 15/16 Washington (8-2, 5-2)

Kickoff: Saturday, 8:30 p.m. MT

Husky Stadium (70,138), Seattle

FieldTurf

TV: ESPN

Radio: ESPN 700AM

Series: Huskies lead, 9-1

Weather: Occasional showers with temperatures in the low 40s.


THE STAKES


For Utah … Bowl eligibility. That’s the primary focus for the Utes. They need one more win in their final two games to become eligible.

For Washington ... The Huskies need a victory and a Stanford loss to California to remain in Pac-12 North title contention.


THE TRENDS


For Utah … The Utes prevailed in the last meeting between the teams in Seattle, claiming a 34-23 decision in 2015. The Huskies, though, hold a commanding 9-1 lead in the all-time series.

For Washington ... The Huskies are the defending Pac-12 champions and need help from California against Stanford and wins the last two weeks vs. Utah and Washington State for a chance to repeat.


THE CRYSTAL BALL


For Utah … The Utes are banged up and may lack the firepower to keep up with the Huskies. As was the case last week against Washington State, too many turnovers will doom them.

For Washington ... The Huskies can make quick of the Utes if their defense lives up to current rankings at/or near the top of the Pac-12. A solid showing by the offense would aid the effort.


PLAYER TO WATCH


Dante Pettis, Washington: The senior receiver holds the NCAA record for career punt returns for touchdowns with nine.


KEY MATCHUP


Utah offense vs. U-dubs defense: Can the Utes move the ball against the Pac-12 leads in total defense (257.4 ypg) and scoring defense (13 ppg)?


QUOTABLE


“I'm sure they are going to be in not a good state of mind. They will be an angry football team. We've got our work cut out for us.”

— Utah coach Kyle Whittingham

"I think Utah is a tough team. I know that program. Last year that was the toughest game we had outside of playing Alabama."

— Washington coach Chris Petersen
