Jazz guard Raja Bell said Tuesday he could be healthy in time for the playoffs if Utah makes the postseason.
The 12-year veteran is recovering from a left knee injury. He received a hyalgan injection April 2 and was ruled out indefinitely at the time.
Bell's recovery has gone well and he resumed running and minor basketball-related activities Monday.
"If I can get into shape and situationally … I can help, I'm all up for it," said Bell, who hasn't played since March 15, and also dealt with a groin injury this season.
Bell, 35, is averaging 6.6 points in 33 games (all starts), while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 40.5 percent behind the 3-point line.
Bell said he understands Utah has a "good thing going" right now, and will allow Corbin to determine his role moving forward.
"They're cooking, so you don't want to get in there and screw everything up," Bell said.
