Williams, Favors, Lee miss Warriors-Jazz game

BY foxsports • January 31, 2014

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Utah Jazz are without starting forward Marvin Williams and center Derrick Favors against the Golden State Warriors, who are missing forward David Lee.

Favors, who averages 13.5 points and a team-leading 9.5 rebounds, has been struggling with a strained hip.

Williams, who had surgery on his right heel and Achilles tendon in the offseason, has been a key to Utah's climb from a 1-14 start.

Lee, who averages 19.1 points and 9.8 rebounds, has been getting anti-inflammatory injections before each game in his ailing shoulder since he sprained it Jan. 20 against Indiana. He had 22 points and 11 rebounds Thursday in a win over the Clippers, but the shoulder and his strained left hip make it difficult to play back-to-back games.

Jeremy Evans and Enes Kanter started Friday night for the Jazz.

Harrison Barnes moved into the lineup for Golden State.
