Utah is expected to start Devin Harris, Raja Bell, Gordon Hayward, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson against Memphis.

Harris (left calf) and Josh Howard (left quad) went through shootaround. They are game-time decisions but are expected to play.

Harris: I'm ready to roll.

Howard: I'm going to give it a go. I'm almost at 100 percent. At these times, coach needs the whole time out there so I'm going to give him all I got.

Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin on the Grizzlies: They're an athletic team. They can go small at times; they move [Rudy] Gay over to the 4 and move Sam Young in at 3 and [O.J.] Mayo in with the point guard, so it's gonna be athletic. They're going to try to push the ball a little more without Zach [Randolph] being in there. They're going to try to pick the pace of the game up. We've got to make sure we're playing smart. We can afford to just get in a track race with them and it play to their advantage. We want to make sure we make them play against us in the post.

The Grizzlies as a tough, physical team: Lionel [Hollins] has done a great job of creating an attitude on defense that we're going to beat you up. They all have their hands on you. They really rally to the ball and they're physical on the ball and they're physical with the guys trying to make cuts to the basket and it transcends. And now it's a reputation for them.

Harris on Mike Conley: He's very talented. He obviously does a lot that doesn't find its way into the score box but he runs the team really well. He gets them into their offense. He's a guy that lives in the paint; he can make a jump shot. But he does a lot of things well for that team.
