Jazz guard Deron Williams (strained tendon, right wrist) said that he still cannot shoot the basketball or follow through on his release, and is dealing with soreness. He is receiving treatment "around the clock" and trying to get better in time for a home game Wednesday against Houston.
Williams is not scheduled to practice today but is at Utah's workout facility. The same situation applies to forwards Paul Millsap (left pinkie, right thumb) and Andrei Kirilenko (left ankle).
Center Mehmet Okur (strained lower back) was not at the practice facility.
Williams, Millsap, Kirilenko and Okur are day-to-day.
