Utah's Paul Millsap missed this morning's shootaround and is listed as a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Atlanta Hawks.
The Utah Jazz could be without a key part of its frontcourt Wednesday night after Paul Millsap declared himself a game-time decision with an ankle injury. Millsap sat out Tuesday's practice and did not participate in shootaround this morning. He indicated that he would see how it felt prior to the game before deciding whether or not he would play.
"It's going to be a game-time decision," he said. "I'll see if I can get out there and move around, but if not I don't want to be out there and hurt the team."
Millsap has played in all 57 games for the Jazz this season and is averaging 15.1 points and 7.3 rebounds. If he is unable to go then Atlanta native and former Georgia Tech standout Derrick Favors will be the likely starter at power forward for the Jazz.
Larry Drew hasn't announced a starting lineup for tonight's game and whether or not Millsap is able to play could effect that decision.
