SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Jazz, already missing Mehmet Okur, will be without a second big man as Kyrylo Fesenko is out for their game against the Toronto Raptors with a gastric ailment.

Fesenko showed up for Wednesday's shootaround but did not participate. Okur remains out after rupturing his Achilles during the first round of the playoffs last season.

The Jazz will also be without forward Jeremy Evans, who has a sprained right wrist.

Utah coach Jerry Sloan said Fesenko's absence means more playing time for Francisco Elson, a 7-foot center/forward who was slowed with injuries during the exhibition season.
