Two all-stars could be reduced to watching from the bench tonight, as the Jazz and Pelicans square off in a late-season contest with plenty on the line for each team.

Jazz forward Gordon Hayward did not participate in shootaround Monday after sustaining an injury to his left quadriceps on Saturday. He is officially listed as questionable for the game.

Pelicans big man DeMarcus Cousins, meanwhile, is also listed as questionable on his team's injury report, after missing a Sunday night contest in Denver with an ankle sprain.

The Jazz enter the day one game up on the Clippers for the No. 4 seed in the West.

"We've got a group that's banged up," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. "You have to get more and more out of yourself and we need more and more from the people on the bench. Everybody needs to give more."

The Jazz will again be without Derrick Favors, whose knee injury has kept him out of action for most of March.
