Oakland, Calif. — Jazz starting point guard Devin Harris (strained left hamstring) is out Thursday against the Golden State Warriors.

Veteran Jamaal Tinsley will start for Utah and is the team's only active point guard, since Earl Watson (ankle) is also out and left for Los Angeles on Thursday to get a second opinion about his injury.

Utah only has 10 active players with Harris, Watson and Raja Bell out.

Tinsley will make his first start for the Jazz. He's only averaging 0.4 points, 0.9 assists and 5 minutes in nine games for Utah.

Harris went through pregame warmups and was active until about 7 p.m. PT. He ran through shooting and running drills with assistant coach Jeff Hornacek, but showed a slight limp when walking back to Utah's locker room.

Harris injured his hamstring Wednesday during a home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
