Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-11-19


Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-11-19ROTATION: 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.

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Carlos Boozer had another impressive game, totaling 22 points and 18 rebounds. Boozer even slapped the backboard after a follow-up dunk in the last three minutes, drawing a technical foul.

--C Kyrylo Fesenko made his third career start with Mehmet Okur out with flu-like symptoms. Fesenko had three points and five rebounds in 19 minutes, though Jazz coach Jerry Sloan criticized his conditioning after the game.

--G Wesley Matthews remained in the starting lineup even after Deron Williams' return and had four points in 26 minutes against Toronto.

--F Andrei Kirilenko was either the Jazz's first- or second-best three-point shooting threat Wednesday with C.J. Miles, Kyle Korver and Okur all out of the lineup. Kirilenko had 20 points and hit two three-pointers. The rest of the Jazz went 1-for-9 from long range.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--C Mehmet Okur missed Wednesday's game with flu-like symptoms, though the Jazz would not say whether Okur was suffering from the H1N1 virus. Okur did not travel to San Antonio for Thursday's game.

--G C.J. Miles (thumb surgery) hopes to resume playing in the next two weeks after suffering a ruptured ligament in his thumb during the preseason.

--G Kyle Korver (knee surgery) is projecting to return ahead of schedule after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur in the preseason. Korver returned from a week at a California training center and expressed a belief that he could be back playing within the next two weeks.

--G Ronnie Price (sprained left big toe) has missed four consecutive games with his injured toe and did not travel to San Antonio with the team for Thursday's game. Price has undergone two MRI exams and saw a specialist Wednesday.

--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.
