Denver — Jazz forward Josh Howard (strained left quadriceps) won't dress for a game against the Nuggets on Sunday at the Pepsi Center.

Howard is a late scratch from Utah's lineup. He strained his quad Jan. 3 during a win over Milwaukee and had been playing with lingering pain.

The Jazz are expected to have 12 active players.Brian T. SmithTwitter: @tribjazz
