The Utah Jazz will be at full strength Wednesday night, when they play host to Toronto at EnergySolutions Arena.
After missing four games with a quad strain, forward Josh Howard will play, according to coach Tyrone Corbin.
Howard is the Jazz's No. 3 scorer at 10.7 points per game. He has not played since Utah's 107-94 win over Deron Williams and the New Jersey Nets on Jan. 14.
"He's going to try," Corbin said.
Meanwhile, center Al Jefferson went to the locker room before the end of the morning shootaround. He was accompanied by trainer Gary Briggs.
"He was having something to do with his leg during shootaround," Corbin said. "... He did leave early."
When he left the locker room and spoke with reporters, Jefferson said he was fine and will play against the Raptors. He joked that he was just taking a bathroom break.
Jefferson leads Utah in scoring (18.3) and rebounding (9.4). He averages 33.2 minutes per game.
