Jazz forward Josh Howard and guard Raja Bell are scheduled to go through a full-contact practice Monday. The duo will be re-evaluated before shootaround Tuesday and could be active against Phoenix.
Howard, who is recovering from arthroscopic left knee surgery, has long eyed the Suns game as his return date.
Howard hasn't played since March 18, while Bell hasn't taken the court since March 15. The veteran duo have started a combined 51 games for the Jazz this season.
