The Utah Jazz said Johnny Juzang did not practice with the their Summer League team Sunday after the guard was involved in a car accident.

The former UCLA star is expected to formally sign a two-way contract with the Jazz after not being selected in last month’s NBA draft.

Various reports described Saturday’s accident in Utah as minor, adding that Juzang was held out Sunday as a precautionary measure.

Juzang, 21, made the All-Pac-12 first team in 2021-22 after averaging 15.6 points and 4.7 rebounds in 30 games (29 starts) with the Bruins.

He averaged 16.0 points and 4.1 boards in his first season at UCLA in 2020-21 after transferring from Kentucky. Juzang’s aggressive late-season play in 2020-21 helped the Bruins reach the Final Four as a No. 11 seed.
