The Utah Jazz will be without injured forward Gordon Hayward on Wednesday night, when they play Milwaukee at EnergySolutions Arena.
Hayward, the Jazz’s No. 3 scorer who averages 13.5 points, is sidelined with a sprained shoulder. Utah will also be without starting point guard Mo Williams, who remains out after undergoing thumb surgery.
There is a chance, however, back-up point guard Earl Watson will play against Milwaukee. He has been sidelined with a stress fracture and bone bruise in his right leg.
According to the Jazz, Watson’s availability against the Bucks will be a game-time decision.
Utah has won three of its last four games and 10 of its last 14, including a 98-91 overtime victory over Sacramento on Monday night. Milwaukee comes off a 112-104 loss at Denver on Tuesday night, meaning the Bucks will be playing back-to-back when they battle the Jazz.
