    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Scores 29 points in Wednesday's loss

    Favors scored 29 points (11-15 FG, 2-9 3PT, 5-7 FT), collected five rebounds and contributed two assists over 39 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans. Favors had scored in double-digits in every game since his return from injury Jan. 22 and took it even further on Wednesday night. His 29 points is the second-highest scoring total of what has been an impressive season for the sixth-year man. Favors had been averaging 14.1 points on 46 percent shooting over his last eight games but this performance is a clear departure from that trend. Favors should continue his solid scoring and can contribute in rebounds and blocks as well.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Dishes career-high six assists Tuesday

    Favors recorded 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 35 minutes during the Jazz's 121-119 overtime win against the Mavericks on Tuesday. Favors is putting up 13.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, three blocks, 1.6 assists, and 0.8 steals in 34 minutes per contest during the first five games of February. Though his shot has been off for the most part since returning from injury, the fact that his back spasms haven't re-surfaced is rather encouraging. As evidenced by this recent stretch of showings, Favors is a capable contributor in every category except three-point shooting.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Posts double-double in Friday victory

    Favors registered 11 points (4-15 FG, 3-6 FT), 15 rebounds, an assist, two steals and five blocks over 32 minutes in Friday's 84-81 victory over the Bucks. The six-year veteran overcame some shooting struggles to put together his second straight double-double and serve as a force on defense for the third straight contest. Favors is now averaging an outstanding five blocks per game over three February contests, while also hauling in 11.3 rebounds per night. He's also posted six consecutive double-digit scoring performances since returning from his recent 16-game absence due to a back injury, unequivocally putting any doubts about his health to rest for the time being.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Goes for 16 and 11 with six blocks Wednesday

    Favors recorded 16 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, and six blocks in 35 minutes during the Jazz's 85-81 victory versus the Nuggets on Wednesday. In five games since making his return to the lineup from a lengthy absence due to back spasms, Favors has quickly re-found his form, averaging 15 points on 51 percent from the field, 7.2 rebounds, 2.2 blocks, 0.8 assists, and 0.2 steals in 30 minutes per contest. The Jazz have won four in a row, Favors has 10 blocks in the last two games combined, and at the moment Utah remains mere percentage points behind the Trail Blazers for the eighth and final playoff spot out West.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Scores 20 in Friday's win

    Favors scored 20 points (9-16 FG, 2-3 FT) while adding nine rebounds and a block in 35 minutes during Friday's win over the Timberwolves. The Jazz had Favors and Rudy Gobert in the starting lineup together for the first time in two months, and the duo helped Utah to their third win on the last four games. Favors has had a rough year so far when it comes to injuries, but he's still averaging a career-best 16.7 points per game and if he can stay on the court in the second half he could put up some strong numbers.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Returns to the starting lineup Friday

    Favors will return to the starting lineup Friday versus the Timberwolves, Jody Genessy the Deseret News reports. After missing 16 consecutive games due to back spasms, Favors has come off the bench the previous two games for the Jazz. He will finally return to the starting lineup Friday, replacing Trey Lyles. Favors played 20 and 21 minutes in his first two games back, and likely will not play extended minutes yet. All things appear to be trending in the right direction for the veteran big man however, and he should be set to take on his normal workload in the near future.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Will draw the start Friday

    Favors is expected to move into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, David Locke of 1280 AM The Zone reports. Favors has seen 20 and 21 minutes respectively in his first two games back from injury while coming off the bench. He's expected to move back into the starting lineup for Friday's outing with the Timberwolves, which could mean another few minutes of increased playing time as well. With Favors moving into the starting lineup, look for Trey Lyles to come off the bench in the corresponding move.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Scores 12 points in 21 minutes off bench Wednesday

    Favors (back) had 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 21 minutes during the Jazz's 102-73 win against the Hornets on Wednesday. Following a 16-game absence, Favors has played 41 minutes combined in games on Monday and Wednesday this week, making 11-of-17 field goal attempts for averages of 13.0 points, four rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals per game. Coach Quin Snyder indicated that Favors would probably play more on Wednesday than he did on Monday, and while he did play one more minute, the game was a total blowout--so it made sense that Snyder decided not to push him too much.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Not expected to start Wednesday

    Favors is not expected to start Wendesday against the Hornets, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Although Favors is not expected to start, head coach Quin Snyder indicated he would probably play more minutes than in his return Monday. Favors played 20 minutes and collected 14 points, five rebounds, and one assist in Monday's tilt with the Pistons. Trey Lyles will likely start at the power forward if Favors does indeed not start. Expect him to return to the starting lineup much sooner than later.

    Jazz's Derrick Favors: Not listed on Wednesday's injury report

    Favors (back) isn't being listed on the Jazz's injury report in advance of Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports. Following an absence of 16 consecutive games due to back spasms, Favors came off the bench in Monday's 95-92 loss to the Pistons, scoring 14 points to go with five boards over 20 minutes. Favors evidently was experiencing no further pain after the game concluded, suggesting that the Jazz are no longer concerned over his injury. There's a good possibility that Favors will rejoin the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, which would result in Trey Lyles moving to the bench and seeing a reduced workload.
