Raja Bell remains in Jazz's starting lineup; Al Jefferson will play

Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said during a pregame interview Monday he'll start Devin Harris, Raja Bell, Josh Howard, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson against Detroit.

Jefferson will play despite the death of his grandmother, Gladys. He expects to miss games Saturday against Golden State and Sunday at the Los Angeles Lakers to attend her funeral, which will be held Friday in Prentiss, Miss.

Corbin acknowledged the decision to start Bell is a sign the Jazz have completely moved past a recent confrontation between the two, which resulted in the veteran guard being sent home early from a road trip and missing a game Saturday at Chicago.

The Jazz's expected starting lineup against Detroit is the same they began using Wednesday at Cleveland, with Gordon Hayward coming off the bench.

Bell said he isn't having any problems with his left knee and expects an MRI taken Monday to come back clean.
