Charlotte, N.C. - Guard Devin Harris (sprained right knee) will be a game-time decision Wednesday against the Bobcats.
Harris said his knee is sore after injuring it Monday during a win at Cleveland. He’ll sit out the majority of practice Tuesday, but is not overly concerned about his injury. Harris wore a light padded brace on his right knee and went through layup drills, running the court with only a minor limp.
“It’s sore. It didn’t really swell that much. … Jog a little [Tuesday], then see how it feels and make the call [Wednesday],” Harris said.
He added: “It’s good that we have the day off. Get some rest and ice and get some treatment.”
Utah forward Josh Howard (sinus infection) didn’t practice.
Jazz center Al Jefferson said he had no idea he recorded game-highs in points (25), rebounds (13) and assists (seven) against the Cavaliers. He became only the fourth player in franchise history to do so, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, joining Karl Malone, Pete Maravich and Andrei Kirilenko.
“I didn’t have a clue,” Jefferson said laughing. “I didn’t realize I led the game in assists. With all them great point guards on the court, I led the game in assists? A guy who don’t normally pass, to let them tell it? That’s amazing. I didn’t know that.”
Enes Kanter brought a large box of donuts to practice. They were the dunking kind.
