  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Will be rested Monday

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Retreats to bench

    Favors isn't starting Friday's game against Sacramento, Brandon Rahbar of DailyThunder.com reports.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Plays 21 minutes in starting role

    Favors ended with nine points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 108-100 victory over New Orleans.

    Favors continues to shift in and out of the starting lineup, making him a very hard player to trust in fantasy. When given ample playing time, he has shown he can still be a 12-team contributor. Unfortunately, this trend seems likely to stick and so he should really be viewed as just a streaming option.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Back in starting five Wednesday

    Favors will start Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    The Thunder continue to alternate starting centers based on matchups, and they'll go with Favors to combat a more traditional big man in New Orleans' Jonas Valanciunas. In his last start Thursday against the Lakers, Favors posted 10 points and 12 boards in 28 minutes. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl will shift to the bench Wednesday.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Not starting vs. Spurs

    Favors is not starting Sunday versus San Antonio, according to Brandon Rahbar of DailyThunder.com.

    The Thunder will have Jeremiah Robinson-Earl be their starting center. Favors recorded four points, seven rebounds and one block across his last two games off the bench. The lackluster averages indicate he will not be a promising option to fantasy managers Sunday.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Posts double-double in victory

    Favors scored 10 points (5-5 FG) and grabbed 11 rebounds across 28 minutes in Thursday's 107-104 win over the Lakers.

    The veteran big man took only five shots in the contest, but he made them all to finish with double-digit points for just the second time on the campaign. Favors also grabbed a season-high 11 boards to notch his first double-double as a member of Oklahoma City. Through seven games, Favors is averaging 6.9 points and 6.0 boards per contest.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Enters starting five

    Favors is starting Monday's game against the Clippers, Brandon Rahbar of DailyThunder.com reports.

    Favors is set to make his fourth start of the season, entering the starting five with Luguentz Dort (shoulder) ruled out. The Georgia Tech product turned in solid production in his last start, Wednesday against the Lakers, finishing with 15 points on 7-for-8 shooting to go along with six boards in 26 minutes.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Coming off bench

    Favors will come off the bench Saturday against the Warriors, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Favors continues to be in and out of the starting lineup. In his one bench appearance, he posted two points and five rebounds in 10 minutes.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Starting Wednesday

    Favors will start Wednesday's matchup against the Lakers, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.

    Favors' playing time has been all over the place, but he'll get the nod at center Wednesday. In his two starts this season, he's totaled 10 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Will rest Tuesday

    Favors will be held out of Tuesday's game against the Warriors for rest purposes.

    Rest and unpredictable rotations are part of the deal when it comes to any Thunder players, so it's not terribly surprising to see Favors get a night off one week into the regular season. Isaiah Roby, who did not see the floor in Sunday's loss to the Sixers, will presumably return to the rotation, while Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Mike Muscala will also be candidates to see minutes -- or even start -- at center Tuesday.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Offers little in starting role

    Favors closed with just six points (3-6 FG), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 loss to Philadelphia.

    Favors moved back into the starting lineup to match the size on the other end of the court, but he saw just 19 minutes of playing time and offered little evidence that he can be a viable fantasy asset this season. His role appears as though it could fluctuate from one night to the next, so there's no reason to target him outside of deeper fantasy formats.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Starting Sunday

    Favors is starting Sunday against Philadelphia, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Favors played just 10 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss to the Rockets, but he'll join the starting lineup for the second time in the first three games of the season. Isaiah Roby will come off the bench.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Coming off bench Friday

    Favors isn't starting Friday's game against the Rockets, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.

    Favors drew the start in Wednesday's opener against the Jazz but played just 20 minutes in the loss. Isaiah Roby will return to the starting five in Friday's matchup.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Plays just 20 minutes in heavy loss

    Favors totaled four points (2-9 FG), nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 107-86 loss to the Jazz.

    Favors shifted into the starting lineup for the season opener but failed to deliver in what was a disappointing debut for the Thunder. Up against his former team, Favors was simply no match for the size of the Jazz, and his playing time reflected that. It is likely he remains in the starting lineup for the time being, but we would expect that to change at some point during the season. Until then, he is worth considering as a backend 12-team option, albeit one with very little upside.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Starting season opener

    Favors will start Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.

    Favors is expected to primarily serve as Oklahoma City's secondary center this season, but he'll start the season opener at Utah, where he's spent the majority of his career. Coach Mark Daigneault indicated that context was partially responsible for the move, and he wanted to "acknowledge" Favors' connection with the Jazz. Isaiah Roby will come off the bench Wednesday but should reclaim starting duties soon enough.
