CLEVELAND — Mehmet Okur will not play in tonight's Utah Jazz game against the Cleveland Cavaliers after spraining his right ankle in pregame warmups.
The 6-11 center had played in two straight games after missing eight months because of a ruptured left Achilles heel.
The injury means rookie Jeremy Evans will dress. He was going to be inactivated for this game instead of Gordon Hayward.
