Favors ended with five points (2-6 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one steal Wednesday in a 111-107 win over the Grizzlies. Favors hit only two of his six attempts from the floor and didn't provide much value as the backup behind Rudy Gobert. Although he didn't do anything special offensively, the 29-year-old has been an asset to the Jazz's defense all season, recording 1.1 blocks and 0.6 steals per game in the month of March.
Favors compiled six points (3-3 FG), one rebound and one block over 11 minutes in Friday's 124-116 loss to the Heat. Favors didn't get many looks from the floor Friday, but he was perfect in his limited opportunities in the loss. After posting his second-highest scoring total of the season Wednesday against the Lakers, he reverted to the mean on the scoreboard Friday and was unable to generate much production in other areas.
Favors had eight points (2-2 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and a block in Monday's win over the 76ers. Favors doesn't play enough minutes to be fantasy-relevant in most leagues, but he continues to be an effective backup to Rudy Gobert at center. Over the last three games, Favors has totaled 24 points on 9-of-9 shooting, while hitting all six of his free throw attempts.
Favors (back) is available for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. The veteran big man missed the past two games with soreness in his lower back, but he'll return to the court Sunday. Favors should reclaim his role as Utah's backup center behind starter Rudy Gobert.
Favors (back) was upgraded to probable for Sunday's game at Denver, Ryan Miller of KSL.com reports. The 29-year-old missed the last two games with lower back soreness and was originally considered questionable for Sunday, but he's now expected to be available. Assuming Favors suits up, he should return to serve his usual role as the backup center behind starter Rudy Gobert.
