CLEVELAND (AP) -- Utah Jazz starting center Al Jefferson will miss his third straight game because of a sprained left ankle.
Jefferson, averaging 17.7 points and 9.4 rebounds, was hurt last week in a loss to Atlanta. Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said there is no timetable on Jefferson's return. Derrick Favors will start in his place Wednesday night against Cleveland.
Corbin also said he will start DeMarre Carroll against the Cavaliers instead of Marvin Williams in an effort to get more energy out of his starting unit.
Guard Mo Williams is back in Utah's lineup after missing 32 games with a thumb injury. Williams had surgery Jan. 3 to repair ligaments and had two pins removed Feb. 13. Corbin said he would monitor Williams' minutes. Williams hasn't played since Dec. 22.
