Utah Jazz Roster Report 2008-11-30

Utah Jazz Roster Report 2008-11-30
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Deron Williams, Shooting guard Ronnie Brewer, Small forward C.J. Miles, Power forward Paul Millsap, Center Mehmet Okur. Bench -- Guard Ronnie Price, Guard Morris Almond, Center Kosta Koufos.


--C Mehmet Okur struggled Saturday after posting four consecutive 20-point games. Okur finished with 10 points and made only three of 13 shots against the Nets. Okur appeared to be bothered by a minor hand injury throughout the game but still played 34 minutes.

--G Deron Williams played 30 minutes, his most since returning from a sprained ankle, in the second game of the back-to-back set. Williams has totaled 43 assists in three games back but had five turnovers against New Jersey.

--G/F C.J. Miles caught up to the opening tip, tipped the ball to himself and went in for a dunk only eight seconds into Saturday's game. Miles went on to finish with 16 points and hit seven of 15 shots in 32 minutes.

--F Andrei Kirilenko played only 9:49 before leaving with an injured right ankle. Kirilenko had three points and two rebounds while going 1-for-4. He said his ankle had grown so weak, he had no strength on his first step and couldn't play defense.


--F Carlos Boozer missed his sixth game with a sprained left quadriceps tendon but has ditched the cast he was wearing for a brace. Boozer said he might play sometime in the coming week, but the second week of December is probably more likely.

--G Brevin Knight sat out with a sprained left index finger but said he would try to return for Tuesday's game at Sacramento.

--C Jarron Collins will not play again for at least six weeks. He has decided to rest in the hopes his injured right elbow will heal, as opposed to undergoing surgery that would keep him out a minimum of two months. Collins will not be re-evaluated until Jan. 3.

--F Matt Harpring was set to undergo an MRI exam on his strained lower back Sunday. Harpring's back gave out in pregame warmups Monday. He played Wednesday but reported being "back to square one" after the game.

--F Andrei Kirilenko left Saturday's game in the second quarter with right ankle inflammation. The Jazz said tests were negative for any sprains or fractures, but Kirilenko does have a point of inflammation. He will be re-evaluated Sunday and is day-to-day.
