--F Paul Millsap had a team-high 15 points and shot 7-for-12 from the field while logging 30 minutes in Monday night's loss at Memphis. In two games back after missing five straight because of patella inflammation in his left knee, Millsap is averaging 25.0 points.
--G C.J. Miles had 10 points but shot only 1-for-8 from the field in Monday night's loss at Memphis. In his four games since replacing Raja Bell as the Jazz's starting shooting guard, Miles is averaging 22.0 points.
--G Raja Bell had five points and shot just 2-for-7 from the field in Monday night's loss at Memphis. In four games since losing his starting shooting guard job to C.J. Miles, Bell is averaging only 4.5 points and shooting 31.8 percent from the field. He scored 14 in his last game as a starter.
--G Ronnie Price had played in only one of Utah's 16 games before Monday night, mostly because of a sprained big toe. But with starting point guard Devin Harris re-straining a hamstring in the first few minutes of the Jazz's loss at Memphis, Price played 20 minutes Monday. That's his most extensive action since a Jan. 31 game against Charlotte. Utah's reserve combo guard and No. 3 point scored four points and dished four assists against the Grizzlies, but he shot only 1-for-6 from the field.
--G Devin Harris (strained right hamstring) left a March 14 win over Philadelphia early. The starting point guard played in the Jazz's next two games, but after re-straining his hamstring in Monday night's loss at Memphis he exited after logging only three minutes. Harris does not expect to be able to play Wednesday night at Oklahoma City.
--F/C Derrick Favors (sprained left ankle) appeared to get hurt in Sunday's loss at Houston. He finished that game but exited early in the third quarter of Monday night's loss at Memphis. It's unknown if the backup big man will be able to play Wednesday night at Oklahoma City.
--C Mehmet Okur (strained lower back) re-strained his frequently sore lower back Jan. 28 against Minnesota and has been ruled out for the rest of the season because of the back and a surgically repaired Achilles tendon that he tore during last year's playoffs. The former All-Star center was limited to 13 games this season and 12.9 minutes per game because of Achilles surgery rehab, a mild ankle sprain and the recurring back issues. There is a slim chance that the big Turk can return in the postseason, but that probably would require the Jazz reaching the Western Conference finals to even be a consideration.
