Favors (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Favors is in line to miss an 11th straight game, as he continues to nurse a bone bruise in his left knee. He's yet to be given any sort of timetable for a return and with the Jazz essentially locking up a playoff spot already, there's no need to push him back into the action too soon. His next opportunity to play will be Friday against the Wizards, but in the meantime, Boris Diaw, Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles could all be in line for more playing time.
