New Orleans — Jazz forward Paul Millsap will start Friday against the Hornets.
Millsap was in uniform pregame, sitting on a trainer's table with his sprained right wrist heavily wrapped.
He participated in shooting drills about 70 minutes before tipoff, beginning with five-foot standstill shots and ending with minor spin moves while working with Utah assistant Jeff Hornacek.
After a light five-minute session, Millsap walked off the court and gave a thumbs up. He then said he planned to play before re-entering the Jazz's locker room.
Millsap was initially listed as doubtful.
Utah forward Jeremy Evans is out.
Hornets coach Monty Williams said guard Eric Gordon will be active.
