SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Jazz starters Andrei Kirilenko, Devin Harris and Raja Bell already have been ruled out for Friday night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers because of various leg injuries.

Backup guard Ronnie Price also is out indefinitely with a strained leg muscle, prompting the Jazz to sign 6-5 guard Kyle Weaver to a 10-day contract.

Starting center Al Jefferson, meanwhile, insisted Wednesday he is only battling a cold not his coach despite a report claiming he was upset with Ty Corbin for not playing him in overtime in Monday night’s loss to Washington.

Jefferson expects to be back in the starting lineup Friday but acknowledged his minutes may be decreased so rookie Derrick Favors can gain valuable experience. Jefferson and Corbin both said there is no issue between them.
