BY foxsports • April 13, 2011

The Utah Jazz will have only eight players active Wednesday night for their season finale against the Denver Nuggets.

Starting swingman C.J. Miles is the latest to join the injury list with a partial tear to a muscle in his left knee suffered in Monday's win at New Orleans.

Veteran forward Andrei Kirilenko is out because of a bruised nerve in his knee.

The Jazz also will be without Raja Bell, Kyrylo Fesenko, Ronnie Price and Mehmet Okur because of injuries.

The Nuggets have clinched their fourth consecutive 50-win season and the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Utah is wrapping up its first losing season since 2004-05 and will miss the playoffs for the first time in five years.
