Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-12-10

Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-12-10ROTATION: 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.


--F Carlos Boozer's streak of eight consecutive 20-point games came to an end Wednesday. Boozer finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds while going 5-for-16 from the field.

--G C.J. Miles had his best game since returning from thumb surgery, with 14 points on 6-for-12 shooting with two three-pointers.

--G Eric Maynor struggled in going 0-for-6, including 0-for-4 in the fourth quarter against the Lakers. He finished scoreless in 15 minutes of action.

--G Wesley Matthews drew the starting defensive assignment against Kobe Bryant, illustrating the confidence coach Jerry Sloan has in the undrafted rookie. Matthews struggled at the offensive end, going 2-for-12 and finishing with seven points.


--F Andrei Kirilenko (strained lower back) missed Wednesday's game after a recurrence of tightness in his back. It was the third consecutive game and fourth of the last five that Kirilenko has missed with back issues. His availability for Thursday's game against Orlando is uncertain.

--C Kyrylo Fesenko (stomach virus) didn't make the trip to Los Angeles for Wednesday's game against the Lakers. His availability for Thursday's game against Orlando is uncertain. Fesenko hadn't played in three consecutive games before he came up sick.

--G Kyle Korver (left knee surgery) is still probably several games away from returning. Korver said he is still bothered by pain in his knee when he tries to lead with his left foot, especially turning quickly and shooting. The Jazz have little practice time this week as well, playing four games in six days.

--G Ronnie Price (sprained left big toe) has missed 14 consecutive games with his injured toe but the Jazz have ruled out surgery for him. Price has started running again and is doing court work, though not at full speed or with contact. He estimated he was 75 percent of the way to returning.

--F Matt Harpring (ankle, knee problems) remains on the Jazz's roster but won't play this season. 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.
