The Jazz get big man Derrick Favors back in action tonight for the first time in a month, but starting point guard George Hill won't play agaisnt the Wolves in Salt Lake City.

Favors has missed the last 14 games and hasn't played since a March 6 game against New Orleans because of a left knee bone contusion.

He won't start -- Boris Diaw stays there --  but the Jazz say he'll play.

Hill, meanwhile, will miss his fifth consecutive game because of a groin strain and one of the Jazz backup point guards, Raul Neto, will not play as well because of a groin strain, too.

Both point guards are inactive.

Once listed on the Jazz injury list, guard Rodney Hood and center Jeff Withey both are expected to play against a Wolves team that won here at Vivant Smart Home Arena the last time in town, 107-80 on March 1.

Something of a model for the Wolves to follow, the Jazz are headed for the playoffs and are trying to hold off the L.A. Clippers in the race for the West's fourth and final home-court spot for the first round.

The Wolves themselves have just three games to play after tonight before they head off into their summers.
