SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Jazz center Mehmet Okur is questionable for Sunday’s playoff opener in Los Angeles with a strained hamstring.

Okur has been out since straining his right hamstring on Monday night against the Clippers.

He did not practice all week and sat out again Saturday in the Jazz’s final workout before traveling to Los Angeles.

The Jazz say Okur will be a gametime decision, but his teammates say they aren’t expecting to have Okur in the lineup.

Coach Jerry Sloan says Jarron Collins would likely start if Okur isn’t ready Sunday.
