  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Practices again

    Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault confirmed that Favors (illness) practiced Sunday but is still dealing with symptoms of the flu, Nick Crain of SI.com reports.

    Favors has missed the Thunder's past three games after falling victim to the flu, and rookie Josh Giddey picked up the virus shortly thereafter and was sidelined for the past two contests. Both players are no longer contagious and were able to practice for the second day in a row Sunday, but Favors and Giddey are apparently haven't shaken off the illness entirely, according to Daigneault. With that in mind, Favors can be viewed as questionable heading into Monday's game against the Pistons, with another update on his status likely to come following the Thunder's morning shootaround that day.
