Jazz's Harris out with sprained left ankle vs. Suns

Posted Apr 4 2012 9:11PM

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Earl Watson will make his second start this season for the Utah Jazz, replacing injured guard Devin Harris on Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns.

Harris sprained his left ankle Monday against Portland and was a game-time decision but did not dress for the Suns.

Watson is averaging 3.1 points and 4.4 assists.

Harris has missed only two other games this season because of a strained hamstring and stomach ailment. He is averaging 10.1 points, 1.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.2 blocks.

Jazz shooting guard Raja Bell remains inactive because of a knee injury, while swingman Josh Howard is still rehabbing from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

The Suns are healthy with the exception of forward Grant Hill, who remains out with torn cartilage in his right knee.
