Jazz's Jefferson won't play vs. Cavs

Utah Jazz starting center Al Jefferson will miss his third straight game because of a sprained left ankle. Jefferson, averaging 17.7 points and 9.4 rebounds, was hurt last week in a loss to Atlanta. Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said there is no timetable on Jefferson's return. Derrick Favors will start in his place Wednesday night against Cleveland. Corbin also said he will start...

Mo Williams Nearly Back From Injury

Twenty-four games into the NBA season, Mo Williams went down with a thumb injury. Little did he know that he would be spending the better part of three months on the shelf for the Utah Jazz. The timetable isn't quite definite for when the point guard will be returning to the fold, but we know that it will be sooner than later, giving the Jazz a real boost in their push for the...

Injuries Let Jazz Fans See into the Future

Recent injuries to Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson have allowed Jazz fans the opportunity to see how this team may look next season without Millsap and Big Al. Against Atlanta, without Millsap, the Jazz played with little energy and lost at home 102-91. With neither big man in the line-up, Utah destroyed the Charlotte Bobcats 98-68 behind Enes Kanter’s 20-20 game. Of course, his...

Utah Jazz: Lost in Translation

As the NBA calendar makes its homestretch towards the playoffs, the Utah Jazz are left staring fate in the eyes.

Coach Ty Corbin and supporting players have expressed their remaining optimism for the treacherous journey...

Jazz-Bucks Preview

Monta Ellis has shined in the clutch in each of the Milwaukee Bucks' three consecutive victories, but he's also crediting the recently acquired J.J. Redick for playing a part in the team's success.

Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter stay hot, even with Paul Millsap back

Paul Millsap's return didn't hurt Derrick Favors or Enes Kanter, but the Jazz fell 109-108 to the Milwaukee Bucks in overtime. With Al Jefferson (ankle) still out, Favors started and knocked down 11-of-20 shots for 23 points with 15 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block. Maybe the most impressive stat for Favors: He didn't foul -- at all. Millsap played 44...

Cavs (20-40) vs. Jazz (32-28) - Game 61

OPENING TIP The Cavs have lost two straight after winning four of five immediately after the All-Star break. Read: They need a victory for the sake of team and fan spirit. Meanwhile, the Jazz have won just four of their previous 10 and are tied with Houston for the final playoff spot. The reasons they need a win are pretty obvious.

Jazz-Cavaliers Preview

While Al Jefferson doesn't appear quite ready to go, the slumping Utah Jazz could get a big boost from the possible return of Mo Williams as they go for a seventh consecutive victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

Bucks proving they can win close games

Monday's game was going to be decided by the team that limited its opponent's strength just enough to win. Outscoring Utah...
