Jazz's Derrick Favors: Expected to sit out Wednesday

Favors (knee) is expected to sit out Wednesday's preseason game against the Trail Blazers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

Favors remains limited due to a bone bruise on his knee, so the Jazz likely will hold him out of the preseason finale as a safeguard. Assuming that's the case, Favors will turn his attention toward being ready for the regular season opener on Oct. 25. The general belief seems to be that Favors will be ready for that contest, but he'll be listed as day-to-day until the team says otherwise.
