  • Favors (knee) didn't travel with the Jazz to Minneapolis in advance of Monday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Jody Genessy of Deseret News reports. It will be the sixth straight absence for Favors, who remains without a clear timetable for a return after being diagnosed earlier this month with a bone bruise in his left knee. That's the same injury that forced Favors to miss most of the preseason and the regular-season opener, so the Jazz may not be eager to rush him back to the court right away. Boris Diaw has settled in as the team's starting power forward in Favors' stead, but Trey Lyles will frequently outpace Diaw for minutes off the bench and remains the more enticing fantasy option of the two.

  • Favors (knee) has yet to be given a timetable for a return, but expects to be out for an extended period of time, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Favors had an MRI performed Wednesday that diagnosed him with a bone contusion in his left knee. While he's avoided any sort of structural damage or breaks, coach Quin Snyder indicated Thursday that he expects the big man to be out "for awhile", so an extended absence appears to be on the way for Favors. That said, he also announced Boris Diaw will likely draw the start in his place, which could mean some extra minutes for him. Trey Lyles should take on a larger role for the Jazz with Favors sidelined as well.

  • Favors underwent an MRI on Wednesday and confirmed he had a bone contusion in his left knee. Favors has already been ruled out for Thursday's game against Chicago, but team officials said that the power forward will continue to be evaluated. They currently have no timetable for his return, but it seems likely that Favors will be held out for multiple games, even if it becomes a precautionary measure.

  • Jazz's Derrick Favors: Ruled out for Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Favors (knee) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Bulls, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Favors has dealt with soreness in his knee since the preseason and has had trouble staying on the court in the early portions of the regular season. Most recently, he was pulled from Monday's game against the Grizzlies with lingering pain and could be in line for an extended absence moving forward if it continues to give him trouble. He's already been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Bulls, although a concrete timetable has yet to be given, so he should be considered day-to-day for the time being. While it hasn't been released who will start in his place, both Trey Lyles and Boris Diaw should see an increased role moving forward.

  • Favors will not return to Monday's game against Memphis while dealing with left knee soreness. Favors came into Monday with a left knee issue and it appears he'll continue into the week with that same designation, despite playing 21 minutes against Memphis. Since he wasn't able to play through the pain, it wouldn't be surprising if Utah gave him some time off to rest up for the season ahead. If that does ultimately come to fruition, Trey Lyles and Boris Diaw would be in store for unexpected playing time.
