OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Utah Jazz played without starting point guard Devin Harris on Wednesday night, then lost forward Andrei Kirilenko to a left knee injury in the second quarter.

The Jazz said X-rays on Kirilenko's knee were negative but he would not play in the second half because of a bruised peroneal nerve.

Harris was listed as inactive Wednesday night, two days after he was hurt early in Utah's loss at Memphis. He had been a game-time decision. Earl Watson started in his place.

Gordon Hayward took Kirilenko's place with the starters in the second half.

Rookie Derrick Favors was active despite a sprained left ankle, but didn't play in the first half.
