Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-11-16

Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-11-16ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Eric Maynor, Shooting guard Wesley Matthews, Small forward Ronnie Brewer, Power forward Carlos Boozer, Center Mehmet Okur. Bench -- Forward Paul Millsap, Guard Ronnie Price, Forward Andrei Kirilenko, Center Kyrylo Fesenko.


--C Mehmet Okur had 13 points but missed a 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds left that could have forced overtime. Okur was well covered by Anderson Varejao and ended up off-balance as he missed his shot off the back rim.

--G Wesley Matthews had 13 points and went 3-for-3 on 3-pointers. Matthews cut to the corner and could have had the potential tying shot, but Andrei Kirilenko opted to inbound to Okur.

--C Kosta Koufos didn't play in his return to Cleveland. The Canton, Ohio, native made an emergency start as a 19-year-old rookie last season when the Jazz faced the Cavaliers. Koufos has played only 25 minutes all season.


--G C.J. Miles (thumb surgery) had the cast from his left hand removed Nov. 9 in New York but is at least two weeks away from resuming practice. Miles said doctors were optimistic that he'd be back playing by the time the Jazz return to the New York area for a Dec. 16 game at New Jersey. He suffered a ruptured ligament in his thumb during the preseason.

--G Kyle Korver (left knee surgery) is expected to miss six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Oct. 28 in New York to remove a bone spur. The Jazz have yet to set an official timetable with respect to Korver, who was cleared to increase his activity level Nov. 9. Korver headed to Santa Barbara, Calif., for a week of work at a center with which the Jazz have a relationship.

--G Ronnie Price (sprained left big toe) had to leave the Nov. 9 game in the second quarter after feeling a pop on the underside of his foot after coming up with a steal. Price did not play the next three games.

--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.
