Okur update

Monday's weird symmetry: The Jazz was practicing at the Clippers' training facility in Playa Vista. And the Clippers happened to be the opponent when center Mehmet Okur suffered a right hamstring strain in the second-to-last game of the regular season.

He worked out on the sideline during Utah's practice and was able to increase his activity. Still, it seems doubtful Okur will be ready for tonight's Game 2, though the Jazz is calling it a game-time decision.

Okur said before practice that his leg still felt tight and that there was a little bit of pain.

"This is the kind of injury if you're not really feeling good, if you go out and try to run, it could be worse," he said. "I look forward to just loosening up a little bit, try to stretch, try to run a little bit. And we'll see what happens."

The leg is about 65% to 70%, Okur said.

"I'm looking for close to 100%," he said. "Maybe I'm not going to be 100% if I feel like my motion, like jumping, running and pushing. If I feel good, I'm going to be out there.

"If not, hopefully, it's going to be OK. If not, I'm going to miss" the game.

I'd say he will still miss this game, and be back at home.

Good. This guy was the main reason we lost that game against jazz before allstar break. The less we have to deal with him the better.

And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too. But some of them, you know, they like "this guy he can shoot, he can score, he can dunk." and I want to be the one to stop all those guys, you know, and just kinda spoil the whole party." - Ron Artest
