Utah Jazz: Okur planning on playing against Wizards; Kirilenko, Brewer sitting out game

SHARE Utah Jazz: Okur planning on playing against Wizards; Kirilenko, Brewer sitting out game

Starting center Mehmet Okur planned to return to the Jazz lineup tonight, but starting small forward Andrei Kirilenko and starting shooting guard Ronnie Brewer both intended to sit out the game against Washington with injuries.

Okur missed the Jazz's two previous games due to effects of a stomach virus, something he's battled twice this season.

Kirilenko will miss a second straight game due to a bruised right calf, an injury that was originally sustained in a March 14 game at Boston but that did not keep from playing until the second half of last Friday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Brewer is sidelined by a strained right groin sustained in Sunday's loss at Minnesota.
