SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Jazz guard Earl Watson underwent an MRI today on his left knee.
The backup point guard suffered a mild sprain midway through the fourth quarter of the Jazz's 90-87 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night at EnergySolutions Arena. He is officially listed as day-to-day
Watson did not return to the court after going to the bench with a slight limp.
The results of his magnetic resonance imaging test are not expected to be publicly released until Friday.
The Jazz took today off after playing five back-to-back sets in the past 16 days. Utah has remained relatively healthy early this season, though, with Al Jefferson being the only player to miss any action due to an injury (inflamed ankle).
Utah will practice again Friday in preparation for its reunion game Saturday, when the "East Coast Jazz" (a.k.a. the New Jersey Nets) visit EnergySolutions Arena. Five former Jazz players are on the Nets' roster, including Deron Williams, Mehmet Okur, Sundiata Gaines, Kris Humphries and DeShawn Stevenson.
