Millsap, Tinsley a game-time decision vs. Miami

The availability of power forward Paul Millsap and point guard Jamaal Tinsley on Friday night against Miami will be game-time decision, Jazz officials said.

Millsap missed Wednesday night's 104-83 win over Houston because of a bruised heel. Tinsley missed the game with a stomach virus.

Starting point guard Devin Harris missed part of the second half against the Rockets, also because of a stomach virus. But he is expected to play against the Heat, who are 13-5 on the road this season.

According to coach Tyrone Corbin, Josh Howard will start as the primary defender on LeBron James. Gordon Hayward gets the initial call on Dwyane Wade.

Corbin knows, however, that nobody controls Miami's two stars without help.

Asked specifically about James, who averages 27.7 points and ranks third in the NBA in scoring, Corbin said, "It will be by committee. They move him around. He plays 'three.' He might play some 'four.' He handles the ball a lot in transition for them. They have him in the post. ... We have to know where he and Wade are on the floor at all times and we have to have a body close to them."

For Miami, Chris Bosh will miss the game because of a death in the family.
