Jamaal Tinsley has had a rough couple of days. On Thursday, Tinsley had a wisdom tooth extracted. The backup point guard was sent home early from practice on Friday in pain and was excused again before Saturday's shootaround ended. He attended the Jazz's game against the Clippers but could barely speak and didn't play. "He didn't look good this morning," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin admitted. Media didn't get to see him in the morning, but a puffy-cheek Tinsley looked miserable in the locker room on Saturday night. Unable to easily speak because of inflammation in his mouth, Tinsley nodded, shook his head and quietly mumbled a few inaudible words to explain that he was in too much agony to take to the court Saturday.
