Nikola Pekovic worked out at length before tonight's game at Jazz but will not play.

With both Pekovic and Ronny Turiaf out, Rick Adelman instead will start Dante Cunningham in the frontcourt alongside Kevin Love and Corey Brewer and then improvise from there, using rookie Gorgui Dieng as much as Dieng can avoid fast foul trouble.

The Jazz, meanwhile, will play without starting forward Derrick Favors, who will missed his third consecutive game with a hip strain.
