Newly signed Jazz small forward Josh Howard is expected to wear number 8, taking the jersey that once belonged to All-Star Deron Williams.

Howard watched a Saturday morning practice at EnergySolutions Arena. He cannot play for Utah until he takes a physical. Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said Howard might be in uniform for tonight's scrimmage. If he is, his minutes will likely be limited.
