Jazz notebook: Earl Watson wants the Kings' DeMarcus Cousins to pick on somebody his own size (or Watson)

Still, Watson, who energized the second unit this season before his injury, believes he's healthy enough to play.

Asked if he thinks the Jazz don't believe him when he tells them he's ready, Watson responded: "I don't know. Disappointing. Beyond disappointing."

NO BELL: Raja Bell missed his 14th game this season Friday. According to the team, he didn't play in this one because of his strained left adductor.

However, the 35-year-old said he feels "great" and could play.

"I'm OK, man," Bell said when asked if that's frustrating. "There comes a point in your career where you realize that ultimately you don't control most of this, so I try to stay ready, put in your road work, shoot your jumpers. If a chance comes, then you're ready for it. Until then, that's all you can do."

Bell referred questions about why he isn't dressing to the Jazz. Corbin has said the staff wants Bell to get completely healthy before returning.
