SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Jazz are without starting forward Marvin Williams and center Derrick Favors against the Golden State Warriors, who are missing forward David Lee.

Favors, who averages 13.5 points and a team-leading 9.5 rebounds, has been struggling with a strained hip.

Williams, who had surgery on his right heel and Achilles tendon in the offseason, has been a key to Utah’s climb from a 1-14 start.

Lee, who averages 19.1 points and 9.8 rebounds, has been getting anti-inflammatory injections before each game in his ailing shoulder since he sprained it Jan. 20 against Indiana. He had 22 points and 11 rebounds Thursday in a win over the Clippers, but the shoulder and his strained left hip make it difficult to play back-to-back games.

Jeremy Evans and Enes Kanter started Friday night for the Jazz.

Harrison Barnes moved into the lineup for Golden State.
