One player of the Utah Jazz is expected to miss the clash with the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday afternoon.

More specifically, Udoka Azubuike will be unavailable for another game, as he has been dealing with a right ankle sprain.

Azubuike has been sidelined since January 29 and there is no timetable for his return.

At the same time, the status of Derrick Favors and Donovan Mitchell for the game with the Lakers remains unknown.

Favors didn’t play against the Indiana Pacers on Friday, due to a knee soreness, while Mitchell was forced to exit the game with a right ankle sprain.

Both players are expected to be game-time decisions for Utah head coach Quin Snyder ahead of the clash with the Lakers.
