Jazz F Al Jefferson to miss third straight game
Jefferson, averaging 17.7 points and 9.4 rebounds, was hurt last week in a loss to Atlanta. Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said there is no timetable on Jefferson's return. Derrick Favors will start in his place Wednesday night against Cleveland.
Guard Mo Williams is back in Utah's lineup after missing 32 games with a thumb injury. Williams had surgery Jan. 3 to repair ligaments and had two pins removed Feb. 13. Corbin said he would monitor Williams' minutes. Williams hasn't played since Dec. 22.
