Favors posted 22 points (8-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-7 FT), eight rebounds, an assist and two blocked shots in 34 minutes during Friday's 124-120 loss to the Spurs.
Favors has now outplayed teammate Rudy Gobert in the paint for two consecutive nights. While it may just be a slump on Gobert's part, there's no denying that Favors' presence inside is bailing Utah out in n area where their defense has been lacking. His 22 points marked his fourth-best total of the season, and two more rebounds would have given him his 15th double-double of the season.
Favors produced 19 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT). seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and a blocked shot in 31 minutes during Thursday's 119-112 win over the Mavericks.
After being cleared to play, Favors showed no ill effects from the knee injury that kept him out of Tuesday's game against the Hawks. The Jazz surprisingly lost that game, and Favors' absence was definitely a factor as Jonas Jerebko was not impressive in the spot start. While it was expected that Rudy Gobert's return from injury would put a dent in Favors' production, hie play as Gobertt's replacement cemented a place in the four spot as the everyday starter. He definitely experienced a lull in production but games like this show that the frontcourt tandem is better with Favors in the mix.
Favors (knee) has been cleared for a return ahead of Thursday's game against the Mavericks, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Favors missed Tuesday's game with a sore left knee, but it apparently wasn't anything overly serious and he'll return to the lineup Thursday despite heading into a back-to-back set. Look for Favors to slot in to his typical starting power forward role and unless the Jazz report some sort of restrictions, the big man should be set for a full workload. In the corresponding move, Jonas Jerebko will head back to a bench role, while Jae Crowder could lose a few minutes as well.
Favors is dealing with a sore left knee and has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
It's unclear when Favors suffered the injury or if it's simply because the NBA regular season is winding down. Either way, the Jazz will be as cautious as possible with their big man and hold him out of Tuesday's contest. The injury doesn't sound like anything overly serious, though, so there's a chance Favors is back in the lineup in time for Thursday's matchup with the Mavericks. Favors' absence should open up more minutes for the likes of Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko in the frontcourt.
Favors tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist in 24 minutes during Saturday's 103-97 victory over Sacramento.
Favors has seen his value fall away over the past few weeks, due in large part to the resurgence of Rudy Gobert. He has not recorded double-digit rebounds since mid-February and has seen his scoring fall away over that same period. He is still a borderline option in 12-team leagues although chances are you could find someone with a touch more upside on the waivers.
