  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Set to join team Wednesday

    Favors (knee) is expected to go through a workout with the Thunder on Wednesday evening, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Favors missed Tuesday's session, as well as Wednesday morning's practice, due to swelling in his knee, but the Thunder expect the veteran big man to be on the floor for Wednesday's second session. Favors had been away from the team to receive treatment, so his knee will be something worth monitoring throughout the preseason. When healthy, Favors projects to back up Isaiah Roby at center.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Sent to Oklahoma City

    Favors and a future first-round pick were traded from the Jazz to the Thunder on Friday in exchange for a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The veteran big man inked a three-year, $27 million deal with Utah last November, and the team decided to shed his salary after the 2021 NBA Draft on Thursday. Favors averaged 5.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 15.3 minutes in 68 games during the 2020-21 campaign, and he should fill a reserve role at center behind Isaiah Roby for Oklahoma City, assuming the team doesn't try to move Favors again.

  • Jazz's Derrick Favors: Blocks two shots in thumping win

    Favors ended with four points (2-3 FG, 0-1 FT), five rebounds and two blocks in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 126-94 victory over San Antonio.

    Favors continues to underwhelm in what has been a disappointing season, at least from a fantasy perspective. The Jazz have opted to limit his playing time on a nightly basis as a means to keeping him healthy. While this strategy has worked for the most part, it does not lend itself to fantasy production, and moving forward, it is hard to see Favors being anything more than a deep league commodity.
