Andrei Kirilenko won't be the only small forward making his return Wednesday.

Marvin Williams went through a full practice on Tuesday, as well as Wednesday's shoot around, and said he will play against the Minnesota Timberwolves at EnergySolutions Arena.

Williams, the Jazz's starting small forward, missed Sunday's loss against the Los Angeles Clippers with inflammation in his right knee. However, after two days of rest, Williams said he felt good enough to play.

"It's a little swollen still," he said, "but I feel pretty good."

DeMarre Carroll, who started in place of Williams in Los Angeles, will presumably move back to the bench and Alec Burks and Gordon Hayward will be the primary backups at the wing positions. Point guard Mo Williams was not with the team Wednesday after flying to New York for a second opinion on his sprained right thumb.
