SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz say guard Deron Williams has been excused from the team for a personal matter.

The team says Williams won't play against the 76ers in Philadelphia on Friday night, but did not elaborate on the reason.

The Jazz wrap up a four-game road trip on Saturday in Cleveland. It was unclear whether Williams would play against the Cavaliers.
