Utah's Elson to miss Monday's game because of visa issues

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah Jazz center Francisco Elson will miss Monday night's game against Golden State because of a delay with his visa renewal.

Elson, a native of the Netherlands, traveled to Canada to renew his visa and is required to remain in the country for 48 hours as standard operating procedures, Jazz officials said. Elson is expected to rejoin the team for Friday's game at New Orleans.

The Jazz also may be without guard Raja Bell (strained right groin) and center Kyrylo Fesenko (sprained left ankle). Both are game-time decisions.

Center Mehmet Okur remains out while recovering from a ruptured Achilles' tendon.
