Utah Jazz Roster Report 2009-12-12

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


--G Deron Williams finished with a season-high 32 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds against the Magic. The eight rebounds equaled his career high.

--C Mehmet Okur finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds in a strange game. Okur went to the foul line four separate times in the first quarter and missed at least one free throw every time. He was called for five fouls battling Dwight Howard inside and played just 22 minutes.

--G C.J. Miles had 22 points in his highest-scoring game since returning from thumb surgery. Miles hit a 20-footer and a three-pointer in the last two minutes as the Jazz put away the Magic.

--G Eric Maynor played only six minutes as Deron Williams stayed on the floor the entire second half in the second game of a back-to-back set.


--F Andrei Kirilenko (strained lower back) missed Thursday's game after a recurrence of tightness in his back. It was the fourth consecutive game and fifth of the last six that Kirilenko has missed with back issues.

--C Kyrylo Fesenko (migraines) went home from the arena before Thursday's game. Fesenko has now missed consecutive games with migraine headaches.

--G Kyle Korver (left knee surgery) is still 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.

--G Ronnie Price (sprained left big toe) has missed 15 consecutive games with his injured toe but the Jazz has 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 is 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.
