Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap missed Utah's game against Charlotte on Friday because of sprained left ankles.
Millsap is sidelined for a second straight game after he was hurt in the first quarter of Utah's 110-107 overtime loss to Boston on Monday. Jefferson was injured in a 102-91 loss to Atlanta on Wednesday.
Both players have just missed two games this season. Jefferson leads the Jazz with 17.7 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. Millsap is right behind him with 15.1 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
Millsap says he doesn't like to miss games but ''you got to know your limitations. You got to know what you can and cannot do.''
Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter started in place of Millsap and Jefferson against the Bobcats.

If you are not one of the top 5 teams in the NBA at the trade deadline and you don’t make a trade, your not doing your job. If you don’t have a chance to make it deep into the playoffs and you’re not at least trying to change a few things up on the floor at the deadline, your not doing your job. It should be every owner, GM and, front office’s job to be putting together a...
Life without Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap may not be so bad -- if the Utah Jazz play the Charlotte Bobcats every night. Jazz fans got another glimpse of the future Friday with a massive 23-point, 22-rebound double-double from Enes Kanter in the Jazz's 98-68 win. Those are career-high numbers.
Kanter started for the injured Al Jefferson (sprained ankle and spotted in a walking...

Are the Jazz going...
Raja Bell hasn't played throughout the season.
Raja Bell would only agree to a buyout with the Jazz had he found a deal with another team.
A sustained effort complete with focus and intensity could be what the Utah Jazz need to end their recent rough stretch.
Hosting the lowly Charlotte Bobcats might help.
The Jazz look to avoid a season-worst fourth consecutive loss with an eighth straight victory over the Bobcats on Friday night.
A 20-point second-half deficit was too much for Utah (31-27) to overcome in Wednesday...
If any good came out of the Bobcats’ latest disaster-piece, a 98-68 shelling in Utah, it’s that Charlotte maybe has a better chance now of bargaining down the price of either Al Jefferson or Paul Millsap in the offseason. That’s because both Jazz big men sat out last night with sprained ankles (Millsap was also [...]
Despite having two of the most sought after players at the trade deadline, in upcoming free agents, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson (their starting frontcourt), the Utah Jazz decided to stand pat. This surprised everyone as they could have added significant assets to add to their future core of Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks and there is no way that they...
Derrick Favors gave a glimpse of what he can do in starter's minutes Wednesday, double-doubling with 17 points (6-of-11 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws) and 15 rebounds. Favors played 38 minutes and added three assists and three blocks.
Favors picked up the start for the injured Paul Millsap, who sat with a sprained left ankle. No word on his timetable for return. Favors...
