Portland, Ore. • It didn't look particularly good when Earl Watson limped off the court in the first half of Friday's 86-77 win over the Trail Blazers. But he returned to the game despite soreness in his right leg. He played 22 minutes, tallying 3 points and 7 assists before being sitting the rest of the night.
However, Watson is one giant question mark after he underwent an MRI Saturday morning in Salt Lake City and did not fly to join the team in Portland as originally planned.
The Jazz are expected to provide more information on the extent of Watson's injury and, perhaps, a timeline for his return before the team plays the Blazers at 8 p.m. MT at the Rose Garden.
