Jazz's Derrick Favors: Could land contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

If the Jazz decide to extend anyone's contract, it will most likely be Favors (knee), Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The Jazz recently freed up $12 million in cap space when they traded Tibor Pleiss to the 76ers. Favors, who despite a back injury averaged a career-high 16.4 points, along with 8.1 boards, 1.5 blocks, 1.5 assists, and 1.2 steals per game, is reportedly first up for an extension along with Gordon Hayward. This contract extension is crucial for the Jazz, who are looking to keep the forward from entering the market at the end of next season. Favors is expected to once again start alongside center Rudy Gobert in 2016-17, but his health is a going concern for fantasy owners.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Plays 62 games over injury-riddled season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Favors ended the year averaging a career-high 32 minutes per game over 62 outings, although his campaign was marred by a 17-game absence with back spasms and a sore knee during the final two weeks of his sixth NBA season.

Favors started in 59 of Utah's games this year and remains a clear favorite to continue starting alongside Rudy Gobert over the next two seasons for the Utah Jazz . Rookie Trey Lyles put together a solid season in relief of Favors, but the former Kentucky standout poses not threat to challenge the perennial starter for minutes. In fact, Utah's frontcourt roster will remain in tact heading into next year, barring the potential departure of Trevor Booker, which means that Favors will retain similar value after two consecutive seasons in Utah with steady averages of 16.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.6 blocks.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Will sit out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Favors (knee) will be a late scratch for the Utah Jazz as they take on the Lakers in their season finale.

Favors would have likely played if the Jazz had a chance to make the playoffs with a win in the Staples Center, but the Rockets routed the Kings to end that hope. Favors has been dealing with a sore knee, and will sit out Wednesday as a means of avoiding furthering the injury. Trey Lyles and Jeff Withey will likely handle a majority of the frontcourt workload as Rudy Gobert has also been ruled out.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Chips in 11 points in return during Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Favors finished with 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one steal, and one block over 28 minutes in Monday's loss to the Mavericks.

It was good to see Favors back on the court after abruptly missing Sunday's contest, but the forward failed to find much rhythm. Despite The Utah Jazz losing their defensive anchor Rudy Gobert early to a sprained ankle, Favors was not a big part of the Utah's offense. With one pivotal game remaining, expect the sixth-year pro to give it his all in Kobe Bryant's finale on Wednesday.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Will play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Favors (knee) will play in Monday's matchup with the Mavericks.

Favors was a surprising late scratch in Utah's previous game Sunday, but will play Monday. Seeing as it as a big game with playoff implications for both teams, look for Favors to take on as much of a workload as he can in this one. Expect an update if he suffers any setbacks.
