Jazz forward Marvin Williams has been bothered by a sore knee this season, but coach Tyrone Corbin says he has benefited from a four-day break between games and will start Saturday against Cleveland.
Williams has missed seven of Utah's first 40 games, including a three-game road trip last week to Charlotte, Atlanta and Detroit.
Williams practiced Thursday, however, and was scheduled to participate again Friday morning.
"I thought the rest was good for him," Corbin said. "We'll monitor how he's going so he doesn't get the soreness in his leg again. But he's looked good."
Williams averages 8.8 points and 3.5 rebounds. He shoots 34.1 percent from the field.
