Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-10-31


Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-10-31ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Deron Williams, Shooting guard Ronnie Brewer, Small forward Andrei Kirilenko, Power forward Carlos Boozer, Center Mehmet Okur. Bench -- Forward Paul Millsap, Guard Ronnie Price, Center Kyrylo Fesenko.

PLAYER NOTES:

--C Kosta Koufos had five points and eight rebounds Friday after the Jazz exercised a $1.3 million option to bring him back for the 2010-11 season. Koufos, the Jazz's 2008 first-round draft pick out of Ohio State, won't turn 21 until Feb. 24.

--F Carlos Boozer bounced back from a 3-for-14 shooting game in the Jazz's opener against Denver with 20 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists against the Clippers. Boozer still made just 9-of-22 shots.

--G Eric Maynor scored his first NBA points on a pair of free throws late in the first quarter but committed a costly mistake at the end of the first half. Instead of running down the clock, Maynor had a drive blocked by Chris Kaman, leading to a three-point play for Eric Gordon at the other end and a 60-60 halftime tie for the Clippers.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--C Mehmet Okur (mild left ankle/knee sprain) is day to day after he was injured 24 seconds into the Jazz's opener while trying to take a charge against Denver's Nene. Okur underwent multiple rounds of treatment but was unable to play Friday against the Clippers.

--G C.J. Miles (thumb surgery) is likely out until December after needing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb suffered during a preseason practice. Miles will wear a cast for four weeks before beginning rehab. The injury is further complicated by the fact it is to Miles' shooting hand. Miles had 16 points in the Jazz's first preseason game.

--G Kyle Korver (knee surgery) is expected to miss six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Oct. 28 in New York to remove a bone spur from his left knee. The Jazz have yet to set an official timetable with respect to Korver, who was able to play in only one of the team's preseason games while battling knee soreness.

--F Matt Harpring (ankle, knee problems) remains on the Jazz's roster but is unlikely to play again. Harpring continues to deal with the effects of a devastating infection that followed ankle surgery in 2008 as well as the effects of multiple knee surgeries throughout his career. Harpring did not join the Jazz for training camp or the preseason, remaining at home with his family in Atlanta.
