BYU’s Noah Hartsock isn’t 100 percent, but he participated and played well in a pre-draft workout for the Jazz on Saturday.

After leading BYU to the second round of the NCAA Tournament last spring, Hartsock underwent ankle surgery in late March. He was in a cast for two weeks and a walking boot for six additional weeks.

According to Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin, however, Hartsock "did a good job" in the workout, which included five other players.

"Coming off the surgery," Corbin said, "he was a little limited with the contact stuff. And he got a little sore, so we pulled him out of it. But he looked good, especially when you consider he hasn’t been able to play a lot."

Hartsock is a 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward from Bartlesville, Okla. As a senior, he averaged 16.8 points and five rebounds while shooting 56.6 percent from the field.

During his career at BYU, Hartsock made 39.4 percent of his 3-point shots.

Hartsock said his surgery "was something that needed to be done and I knew coming in I would be a little limited. I didn’t have a lot of time for conditioning or a lot of time to work out. So I just tried to do the best I could with what I have."

Hartsock will work out Sunday with the Golden State Warriors.

He also has an offer on the table from a professional team in Belgium.

In addition, Hartsock said, teams in Spain and Germany have expressed interested in signing him "so we’re waiting to see what happens. We’re just excited that I might be able to keep playing."

Joining Hartsock for the workout at the Jazz practice facility were Missouri guard Kim English (6-6, 220), Cal guard Jorge Gutierrez (6-3, 195), Purdue small forward Robbie Hummel (6-8, 215), Wichita State guard Toure’ Murry (6-5, 195) and Villanova guard Malik Wayns (6-2, 200).

As a group, Corbin said, the prospects played extremely hard: "These guys have to figure out what their niche will be in this league, and I think they are smart enough kids to figure out what their assets are and how to use them."

The Jazz own only one pick in this year’s draft, which will be held June 28. They will pick 47th, midway through the second round.
