CHICAGO (AP) -- Utah Jazz center Al Jefferson is back in the lineup after missing three games with a sprained left ankle.

Jefferson, who is averaging 17.7 points and 9.4 rebounds, got the start on Friday night at Chicago.

Jefferson was injured last week in a loss to Atlanta. Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin says they will monitor his minutes early on against the Bulls and hope he will be "fresh to finish the game for us."
