Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-11-24

Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-11-24ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Deron Williams, 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 Kyrylo Fesenko made his third consecutive start in Mehmet Okur's absence and fourth overall this season. Fesenko finished with four points and five rebounds in 13 minutes, yet the Jazz are now 4-0 in games he starts.

--G Eric Maynor struggled with his shot in going 2-for-7 overall, 1-for-3 from 3-point range. Maynor did play in the fourth quarter against the Pistons -- he was paired with Deron Williams in the backcourt -- and finished with eight points and three assists.

--G Wesley Matthews has seen his numbers drop off in recent games, but he remains in the starting lineup. Coach Jerry Sloan has noted that Matthews has graded out the best this season of any Jazz player on the defensive end.

--G C.J. Miles has upped the intensity of his workouts with assistant coach Tyrone Corbin as he continues to recover from thumb surgery. Miles, however, is unsure when he'll be able to return and is trying to be cautious to avoid reinjuring his thumb.


--C Mehmet Okur missed Saturday's game, his third in a row, with flu-like symptoms. Okur showed up to the team's morning shootaround but was sent home and did not return for the game against the Pistons. Okur is not suffering from the H1N1 virus.

--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 six consecutive games, but the Jazz have ruled out surgery. Price will continue to rehab in the hopes of returning in a couple of weeks or so. He would have missed four to six weeks with surgery.

--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.
