DENVER (AP) -- Utah Jazz center Mehmet Okur was helped off the court after reinjuring his left Achilles' in the second quarter of Game 1 against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night.

He will have an MRI on Sunday.

Okur was driving to the hoop when he planted on his left foot and tumbled to the floor with eight minutes left in the quarter. He scored seven points in 11 minutes.

The Jazz were already without forward Andrei Kirilenko, who will be sidelined for two weeks after aggravating his strained left calf during a workout Thursday.
