Jazz guard Raja Bell (strained left adductor) and forward Paul Millsap (bruised left heel) are doubtful tonight against Houston at EnergySolutions Arena.
Millsap left a road loss Tuesday to Sacramento with 2 minutes, 19 seconds left in the fourth quarter and didn’t return.
Bell has missed three consecutive games due to his injury.
Josh Howard started Tuesday for Bell with Gordon Hayward sliding down to shooting guard.
If Millsap is unable to play, Derrick Favors could step in to the starting lineup.

Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap was examined this morning by team orthopedist Dr. Lyle Mason. X-rays conducted on Millsap's left heel were negative and he has been diagnosed with a severe left heel bruise. Millsap is doubtful for tonight's game vs. the Houston Rockets.
