The following is a medical update on Utah Jazz guard/forward C.J. Miles, who left last night’s game at San Antonio at the 5:43 mark of the second quarter with a left calf injury and did not return:

Miles was examined by Jazz team orthopedist Dr. Lyle Mason and underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests on the calf on Monday.  The MRI tests showed Miles has a moderate strain of his left calf muscle.

Miles will not travel with the team on its upcoming three-game road trip to Houston, New Orleans and Memphis.  He will be re-evaluated in one week and an update on his status will be provided at that time.

Now in his sixth NBA season, all with the Jazz, Miles (6-6, 222, Skyline H.S. (TX)) has appeared in 56 games (14 starts) this season, starting each of the last 14 Jazz games.  He is averaging 9.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 20.4 minutes per game.

Guard Earl Watson was examined by Jazz team orthopedist Dr. Lyle Mason and underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests on the knee on Monday.  The MRI tests revealed a torn medial meniscus within Watson’s right knee, which will require surgery.  As a result, Watson is out indefinitely.

Watson will not travel with the team on its upcoming three-game road trip to Houston, New Orleans and Memphis.  An update on his status and timeframe for his recovery will be provided following the surgery, which has not yet been scheduled.

Now in his 11th NBA season and second with the Jazz, Watson (6-1, 199, UCLA) has appeared in 50 games (two starts) this season and is averaging 3.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 20.7 minutes per game.
