SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah Jazz guard Raja Bell will miss his team's game against the Orlando Magic with a strained right adductor muscle.

Bell averages 8.4 points and often guards the opponent's top scorer. He also missed Utah's 115-108 loss to Oklahoma City last month with a strained left groin.

Gordon Hayward, the ninth overall pick in the 2010 draft out of Butler, got the start Friday night in place of Bell.

Utah center Kyrylo Fesenko also is out again after spraining his left ankle in Monday's 94-85 win over Memphis.
