Jazz's Devin Harris expects to play against Bobcats; Kanter goes on quest

Charlotte, N.C. — Notes following Jazz shootaround Wednesday morning at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Utah point guard Devin Harris (sprained right knee) is expected to play against the Bobcats and has officially been listed as active.

Harris said he'll give his knee a good test before tipoff.

"I think I'm all right," he said.

The Jazz are expected to start Harris, Raja Bell, Josh Howard, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson.

Earl Watson will likely start if Harris is unable to go.

One day after brining (dunking) donuts to practice, rookie center Enes Kanter received some good, old-fashioned hazing. Big Turkey was sent to the top of the 300-level inside the arena, after Jefferson politely asked him to professionally determine if a large, inflatable Budweiser bottle was real. About five minutes after navigating his way through stair sets and dark hallways, Kanter victoriously emerged. The Bud, however, was a fake.

Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin watched via TV as a five-win Charlotte team overcome a 20-point deficit to knock off Orlando on Tuesday. Corbin was impressed by the play of everyone from the Bobcats' Corey Maggette and Gerald Henderson to rookie center Bismack Biyombo, who earned praise for his toughness. Corbin said the Bobcats did a good job of running the floor and mixing an outside-in approach against the Magic. He also joked that Charlotte only got going because coach Paul Silas was ejected.

Corbin acknowledged the Bobcats contest is a swing game for the Jazz during their five-game road trip. However, he's primarily concerned about Utah's ability to stick to its game plan and continue to make progress as it fights for a playoff spot.
