Jazz forward Marvin Williams is doubtful for Wednesday's game against Indiana because of a foot injury, the team announced after Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Williams scored 10 points in the Jazz's 109-103 win over Houston on Monday night. But he did not practice Tuesday, when he underwent a bone scan.

According to Jazz spokesman Jonathan Rinehart, the test revealed "calcaneal inflammation" in his right foot.

Williams underwent Achilles and heel surgery on the same foot during the offseason. He missed the start of the regular season. He averages 10.4 points and 5.2 rebounds in 26 minutes over 13 games so far.

Beyond Williams' injury, Utah forward Jeremy Evans has been bothered by a stomach ailment. His availability against Indiana will be a game-time decision, Rinehart said. —
