HOUSTON — Backup center Kyrylo Fesenko traveled with the team here to Houston, but won't play tonight against the Rockets.

Fesenko stayed back at the Jazz's team hotel due to a sore throat and a migraine headache.

Fesenko also missed the Jazz's overtime win over Oklahoma City on Tuesday night because of his sore throat.

The Jazz also again will be without usual starting small forward Andrei Kirilenko, who remains sidelined with a strained left calf, for the 6 p.m. ESPN-televised game.
