Grizzlies swingman Ronnie Brewer will miss at least three weeks with a partially torn right hamstring. Brewer, who was injured Friday during the Grizzlies' 100-87 double overtime loss to Miami, had his condition confirmed this morning after a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam. Brewer did not travel this afternoon with the team to New Jersey where the Griz will face the Nets Sunday evening. The Grizzlies are officially saying that Brewer will be out indefinitely and a timetable for his return will be set in a week. Brewer needed crutches when he left FedExForum Friday night. He was walking without crutches this morning. The 6-7 swingman was acquired by the Grizzlies Thursday in a trade with the Utah Jazz. Memphis received Brewer for a protected 2011 first-round draft pick. He came up with a steal near mid court and was sprinting toward the basket for what would have been an uncontested dunk. But Brewer stopped his dribble shortly after he crossed midcourt. He fell to the floor and grabbed his right leg, grimacing in pain as the team trainer ran to his aide.

Terrible luck. Get well soon Ronnie.The Memphis Edge

"I just thought I'd make a change.'' "Fes has got to learn to be little bit more accountable for being late a time or two, and some of those things,'' Sloan said. "You know, if he's gonna play in this league and doesn't like what we do, that's fine. I don't have a problem with that. "But if he's gonna stay involved and try to understand what's going on — he's got talent, but it's important for him to stay focused on what we're trying to do and not be jackpotting around.'' "And he's a young guy. It's like he already has the answers as to what's going on out there. And I haven't always seen that in practice, and some of his workouts. He'll tell you he works hard, but I've seen guys work hard. I'm not totally blind.'' Asked further if the decision was disciplinary, then, Sloan responded accordingly, and took only breath while doing so: "No, not disciplinary. People will probably call it that, or (suggest) I'm trying to be a hard-nosed guy. I'm not a hard-nosed guy with these guys. I just hope that he learns. We've tried to tell him. I don't fine him money. If I wanted to be a disciplinarian, I would take his money. I'm not interested in money. I'm interested in the kid getting better. We've got a lot invested in him. A lot of time. A lot of effort. Our coaches work with him. You know, take advantage of it rather than let it slip through your fingers when it's there. And obviously a lot of people haven't agreed with my substitutions and all those things. But I think we can say that we want guys to succeed, and we've got a lot of people succeed that weren't expected to because they worked hard. We're not trying to hurt him in any way.''

But Batum was annoyed at Brewer, saying the Jazz’ starting shooting guard went at his shoulder intentionally. "I know he did it on purpose because he tries to get me every time," Batum said. "Last game, he did the same."

Jazz point guard Deron Williams on longtime Jazz big man Jarron Collins, who was in town Monday with his new NBA team, a fast-paced Phoenix Suns team known in the past for its so-called "seven-seconds" offense: "I don't think he's one of those people that's allowed to shoot in seven seconds."

If Fesenko indeed does not play tonight, reserve big man Kosta Koufos — who has been inactive for two of the past three games, and didn't play (coach's decision) in five of the prior six — would be added to the Jazz's 12-man active roster.

Deron and AK will play tonight... AND SO SHALL THE KOOF. Via Deseret News' Tim Buckley.

13. Utah Jazz (17-13 overall, 1-1 last week) SBN Blog: SLC Dunk Here's a shocker: Utah played one road game and one home game this week, losing the road game while scoring just 70 points and winning the home game by 21 points. At this point, it's comical how differently they play at home compared to how they play on the road. I'm running out of funny things to say about it. The Jazz also made a trade this week, dumping promising rookie Eric Maynor off to Oklahoma City so they could rid themselves of Matt Harpring's contract and cut their astronomical luxury tax bill down. That means they need a point guard, and Ridiculous Upside, SB Nation's NBA Developmental League blog, goes through some possible D-League candidates. I'm hoping for Mustafa Shakur myself. Why? Someone with that awesome of a name needs to be in the NBA. Case closed. (Last week: 12)

Maybe it’s a coincidence, maybe not, but today also was the first time I’d heard talk of the Jazz (and Greg Miller) expressing an interest in holding on to Carlos Boozer for the rest of the season and possibly re-signing him as a free agent this summer.

Section VIII-Defensive Three-Second Rule a. The count starts when the offensive team is in control of the ball in the front-court. b. Any defensive player, who is positioned in the 16-foot lane or the area extending 4 feet past the lane endline, must be actively guarding an opponent within three seconds. Actively guarding means being within arms length of an offensive player and in a guarding position. c. Any defensive player may play any offensive player. The defenders may double-team any player. d. The defensive three-second count is suspended when: (1) there is a field goal attempt, (2) there is a loss of team control, (3) the defender is actively guarding an opponent or (4) the defender completely clears the 16-foot lane. e. If the defender is guarding the player with the ball, he may be located in the 16-foot lane. This defender is not required to be in an actively guarding/arms dis-tance position. If another defender actively guards the player with the ball, the original defender must actively guard an opponent or exit the 16-foot lane. Once the offensive player passes the ball, the defender must actively guard an opponent or exit the 16-foot lane. PENALTY: A technical foul shall be assessed. The offensive team retains pos-session at the free throw line extended. The shot clock shall remain the same as when play was interrupted or reset to 14 seconds, whichever is greater.
