Jazz Set to Play in Los Angeles

Bynum Heading into Wednesday’s matchup in Los Angeles, the Utah Jazz were 12-8, winning 8-of-10 games to improve their standing to fifth in the Western Conference.

Last season, the Jazz struggled with injuries to key players Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur, and while all three are healthy and playing well, the injury bug has bitten many of Utah’s role players.

Andrei Kirilenko has been out with a back injury and is expected to miss his third straight game, while Kyrylo Fesenko (stomach) is a game-time decision. Kyle Korver (knee), Matt Harpring (ankle) and Ronnie Price (toe) have been ruled out.

L.A.’s only injury was suffered in Tuesday’s practice, when backup center D.J. Mbenga tweaked his right ankle.

If you include the playoffs, the Jazz have lost 12 consecutive games at STAPLES Center, and is 3-16 overall in the building.
