Player News
  • Favors will come off the bench Tuesday against the Kings. The Pelicans are eliminated from playoff contention, and coach Alvin Gentry is having Favors come off the bench while Jaxson Hayes draws the start. Favors has come off the bench only two other times this season, and it's not clear what his workload will be Tuesday.

  • Favors totaled 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-0 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and one assist in 29 minutes during Friday's 118-107 win over Washington. Favors put up double-digit points for just the second time in five games since the NBA started again. The 29-year-old's scoring is at a nine-year low at just 9.0 points per game, but he has made up some of the difference with a career-high 9.8 rebounds per contest.

  • Favors (undisclosed) logged 13 minutes as a starter during Saturday's 119-104 scrimmage win over the Nuggets. He registered six points (3-4 FG), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal. The biggest news here is that Favors looks ready to play, and he should be the team's starting center once play resumes later this month. The former Jazz big man was averaging 9.2 points and 9.9 rebounds in 24.2 minutes per game before play got suspended in early March.

  • Favors (undisclosed) will play and start Saturday's scrimmage against the Nuggets. Favors' absence from the Pelicans' first scrimmage didn't come with a clear reason, but he's set to go Saturday. During Favors' final 10 appearances before the shutdown of the season, he averaged 8.2 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 25.0 minutes.

  • Favors will not participate in Wednesday's opening scrimmage against the Nets, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The reason for Favors' absence isn't clear, but it could just be load management for the veteran big. In his absence, Jaxson Hayes and Jahlil Okafor could see extra minutes.
