Notes following Jazz shootaround Saturday morning at EnergySolutions Arena.
The Jazz's Devin Harris (strained left hamstring) and Raja Bell (strained right adductor) are game-time decisions Saturday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. Earl Watson (sprained right ankle) is doubtful.
"It'd be important to get just one of our point guards back," Utah forward Paul Millsap said. "That'd be great."
Harris said his hamstring is feeling better. Barring a setback, he plans to play.
"It feels pretty good. I went through a hard workout [Friday]. I went through a hard shootaround today, so everything feels good," Harris said. "All expected, nothing crazy happens, I'll play tonight."
Watson also plans to play and said he didn't deel with any pain during shootaround.
Bell has missed three consecutive games and didn't travel with the team to Golden State on Thursday. His injury has been improving, though, and he could also take the court against Los Angeles.
C.J. Miles on the Lakers: Every year I've been in the playoffs, they put us out, so that's pretty much a problem for me. They're always great games, too, for the most part.
What he doesn't like about the Lakers: They beat us. That's pretty much what it is. ... Some of the times we felt like, some of the games they beat us, they felt like it was a given. We didn't feel like that was the way that it is.
