Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Strong in multiple categories
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors provided nine points (3-4 FG, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 22 minutes during the Pelicans' 127-125 preseason win over the Bulls on Wednesday.

Favors followed up a lackluster preseason debut Monday against the Hawks by posting a much more productive showing, one where he appeared to be fully recovered from the strained hamstring that had previously plagued him. The veteran big man's line Wednesday is representative of the type of numbers he's expected to provide in the upcoming regular season as an undersized center, with Favors' rebounding prowess expected to be a valuable complement to the efforts of rookie Zion Williamson alongside him down low.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Will play and start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (hamstring) will play and start in Monday's preseason contest against the Hawks, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

Favors' sore hamstring that he has been nursing for the past few days wasn't anything too serious as expected. In result, the forward will be getting the starting nod with his new squad during the team's exhibition opener Monday versus Atlanta.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Questionable for preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's preseason game against the Hawks.

Favors has been dealing with some hamstring tightness that kept him out of Saturday's scrimmage. The Pelicans said the injury wasn't serious, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the team exercise caution with Favors. If he is held out, Jahlil Okafor would be in line to see more minutes in the preseason outing.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Nursing sore hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors didn't play in Saturday's scrimmage due to hamstring tightness, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

GM Trajan Langdon indicated it isn't a serious issue, but it's unclear if Favors will be ready to go for Monday's preseason opener in Atlanta. The team is likely to remain cautious with the veteran big man with the regular season right around the corner.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Shipped to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors was traded from the Jazz to the Pelicans on Sunday, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

The details surrounding the trade have yet to be revealed, but it looks as though the Pelicans will add yet another talented big man to their squad, assuming the trade becomes official. Favors averaged 11.8 points along with 7.4 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.2 assists over 76 contests last season with the Jazz, and he figures to be a force on the defensive end of the court in New Orleans alongside Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Not starting Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors is not in the starting lineup against the Rockets for Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Saturday, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports.

Favors averaged 13.5 points. 9.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 23 minutes over the first two games of the series, but will come off the bench Saturday. Jae Crowder enters the starting lineup in his place.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Double-doubles in Game 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors delivered 14 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 12 rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 22 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.

Favors came through with one of two double-doubles for the Jazz on the night, joining frontcourt mate Rudy Gobert in accomplishing the feat. The veteran big has been highly efficient over the first two games of the series while shooting 63.1 percent. Favors is averaging 13.5 points and 9.0 rebounds across 23.0 minutes during that span, and he figures to continue playing an important complementary offensive role against a Houston team that struggles to limit scoring in the paint.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Plays 24 minutes in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors ended with 13 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 122-90 loss to the Rockets.

Favors returned after missing the final regular season game due to rest, compiling 13 points and a full line in just 24 minutes. Favors actually missed five of the last six games for the Jazz and the limited playing time here is something to keep an eye on. Although the game was a blowout, the other starters all played at least 31 minutes. There is no word of the injury flaring up and it appears he should be ready to go for Game 2 on Wednesday.

April 10, 2019 03:44 PM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Out for rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors, due to return from injury management, won't play Wednesday against the Clippers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

Favors will get the day off on the second half of a back-to-back set after missing four straight games due to a back injury. Jae Crowder and Thabo Sefolosha should benefit from his absence.

April 10, 2019 12:52 AM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Solid production in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors totaled 16 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 118-108 victory over the Nuggets.

Favors made his return after missing four games due to a back issue, finishing with 16 points in 22 minutes. The low playing time was likely by design and the fact he made it through the game unscathed is certainly a positive. He has quietly had a fantastic season and has generally been injury free throughout. He is not the player he was only a few years ago but is definitely a serviceable asset across most competitive formats.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is available for Tuesday's tilt against the Nuggets.

Favors will return from a four game absence due to back spasms. The Jazz are likely trying to get him some run before the playoffs start, so they could opt to ease him back into the swing of things.

April 8, 2019 07:20 PM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Probable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Favors has missed the past four games dealing with back spasms. Utah will likely be very cautious in their handling of Favors, as there is just two regular season games left before the playoffs start. More information on his status should come out following the teams morning activities.

April 6, 2019 10:08 PM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) will not play against the Lakers on Sunday, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Favors will miss his fourth straight game as he continues to battle back spasms. Utah will likely remain cautious with the 27-year-old for the final two games of the regular season coming Tuesday and Wednesday.

April 4, 2019 07:12 PM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Out again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is out Friday against the Kings, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

Favors will miss another contest due to back spasms, his third straight absence. The injury doesn't appear to be overly serious, however, and Utah is likely ensuring that it's starting power forward will be healthy for the postseason. Favors will have three more chances to suit up during the regular season, with his next chance coming Sunday against the Lakers.

April 2, 2019 07:12 PM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is out Wednesday against the Suns, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Favors will miss a second straight game Wednesday's while working through back spasms. Jae Crowder (knee) figures to draw another start.

March 31, 2019 05:40 PM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) won't play Monday against the Hornets.

Favors was pulled from Friday's matchup due to back spasms, and the issue is evidently serious enough to keep him out of Monday's tilt. He'll be considered a game-time call for Utah's upcoming contest Wednesday in Phoenix until more information on his availability is released. Jae Crowder is likely to draw the starts in Favors' place.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Shut down for second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) won't return to Friday's game against the Wizards, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

Favors left the contest in the second quarter due to back spasms, and the team has decided to shut him down for the second half. He figures to be a game-time call for Monday's clash with Charlotte.

March 29, 2019 09:56 PM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Questionable to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors is questionable to return Friday against Washington due to back spasms.

Favors exited the contest during the first half due to back spasms, and it remains to be seen if he'll manage to check back in. He scored six points and secured three rebounds over nine minutes prior to departing.

March 26, 2019 05:16 AM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Well-rounded stat line in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors finished with 18 points (9-13 FG), eight rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 25 minutes in the Jazz's win over the Suns on Monday.

Favors continued his strong play in Monday's win, finishing tied for second in scoring behind only Rudy Gobert and contributing solid rebound, assist and block totals. Over his last four games, Favors has averaged 14.0 points, 8.5 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.3 blocks, making him a steady and serviceable play without a lot of big-game upside.

March 22, 2019 11:24 AM
Jazz's Derrick Favors: Records double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors notched 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-3 FT), 15 rebounds, two steals, one block and one assist in 27 minutes Thursday in the Jazz's 117-114 loss to the Hawks.

Favors has now recorded double-doubles in three of his last five outings, averaging 11.8 points and 9.4 boards during that span to go with 1.8 blocks. The Jazz haven't handed Favors more than 30 minutes in any game since March 2, which puts somewhat of a cap on his overall fantasy upside. That said, the numbers he's offered of late are useful enough to make him a worthy roster option in nearly any season-long format.
