Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Coming off bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors will come off the bench Tuesday against the Kings.

The Pelicans are eliminated from playoff contention, and coach Alvin Gentry is having Favors come off the bench while Jaxson Hayes draws the start. Favors has come off the bench only two other times this season, and it's not clear what his workload will be Tuesday.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Logs double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors totaled 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-0 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and one assist in 29 minutes during Friday's 118-107 win over Washington.

Favors put up double-digit points for just the second time in five games since the NBA started again. The 29-year-old's scoring is at a nine-year low at just 9.0 points per game, but he has made up some of the difference with a career-high 9.8 rebounds per contest.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Limited impact in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (undisclosed) logged 13 minutes as a starter during Saturday's 119-104 scrimmage win over the Nuggets. He registered six points (3-4 FG), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal.

The biggest news here is that Favors looks ready to play, and he should be the team's starting center once play resumes later this month. The former Jazz big man was averaging 9.2 points and 9.9 rebounds in 24.2 minutes per game before play got suspended in early March.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Playing, starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (undisclosed) will play and start Saturday's scrimmage against the Nuggets.

Favors' absence from the Pelicans' first scrimmage didn't come with a clear reason, but he's set to go Saturday. During Favors' final 10 appearances before the shutdown of the season, he averaged 8.2 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 25.0 minutes.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Won't play in Wednesday's scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors will not participate in Wednesday's opening scrimmage against the Nets, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The reason for Favors' absence isn't clear, but it could just be load management for the veteran big. In his absence, Jaxson Hayes and Jahlil Okafor could see extra minutes.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Steady showing since break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors averaged 8.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and one assist in nine games since the All-Star break.

Favors finished in double figures in three of nine games since the break, recording two double-doubles over that stretch. As the team's starting center, he'll consistently see around 25 minutes on a nightly basis once NBA action resumes.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Plays 32 minutes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors tallied 10 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 loss to the Mavericks.

Favors recorded a double-double in 32 minutes, the most he has played since mid-January. After what can only be described as a feeling-out period, Favors appears to be getting used to sharing the court with Zion Williamson. He has now scored in double-digits in three straight games, averaging 10.7 points and 11.3 rebounds over that period. His ceiling is certainly capped given his role in the Pelicans offense; however, he is still worth rostering in most formats.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Double-doubles in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors contributed 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Lakers.

In the four post-break games prior to this one, Favors' scoring has been worse than it was beforehand, putting up just 6.8 points per game in that span. Although, he's still been a top 100 player during that period thanks to his 10.3 boards, 1.0 blocks, 0.8 steals and 61.9 percent shooting. He showed those hustle stats early in this game, accumulating 10 boards, one steal and one block by half-time. While it hasn't been the career fantasy year that some may have hoped for, Favors is still doing enough to be worth owning in most leagues.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Hauls in 15 boards Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors finished with five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's 116-104 victory over Cleveland.

Favors grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds in the victory, while also contributing across the board. Favors presents as an interesting pickle for many given the obvious cap on his playing time and subsequent production. He is likely to flirt with top-100 numbers moving forward; however, much of his value is tied to his rebounding and shot-blocking ability. If you aren't desperate for wither of those, you are likely better served streaming his position.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Limited production continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors ended with just six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 115-101 victory over the Warriors.

Favors downward trajectory continued Sunday in what was another unproductive effort other than the boards. The addition of Zion Williamson has certainly had a negative impact on Favors' overall value, making him tough to consider a must-roster player in many formats. His role as the starting center appears set in stone, but he isn't seeing a starter's minutes load. At this stage, Favors is only offering upside in rebounds, so if they aren't on your wish list, he has very limited value.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Scores eight in 20 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors had eight points (4-8 FG), nine rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes during Thursday's 123-118 loss to the Thunder.

In nine games prior to this one, since Zion Williamson made his debut, Favors has seen 23.4 minutes per game and has produced 8.9 points, 9.4 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game. It didn't look any prettier in this one. Those numbers aren't terribly far off from his season averages, but Favors has fallen outside of the top 150 over the last two weeks. As Williamson continues to find his footing on this Pelicans team, Favors' usage and production could drop even further. The 28-year old's rest-of-season outlook is gloomy, but he'll be a free agent this summer and could choose to look for greener pastures.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Double-double in 24 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors finished with 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during Saturday's 124-117 win over the Pacers.

Favors hauled in double-digit boards for the fourth time in the last five games, as he continues to average a career-best 10.0 rebounds through 34 appearances. He's also managing career highs in assists and field-goal percentage. Nevertheless, even with Zion Williamson (ankle) sitting this one out, Favors didn't receive a ton of minutes, and he has seen more than 24 minutes in only three of the eight games Williamson has played thus far.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Pounds the glass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors accumulated eight points (4-5 FG), 15 rebounds, an assist and a block across 19 minutes in New Orleans' 125-119 win over the Bulls on Thursday.

Despite falling just shy of a double-double again, Favors was efficient and put out a dominant rebounding effort --- he was the only player with more than eight rebounds in the contest. Favors has more scoring upside than his recent performance indicates, as he averaged over 12 points through the month of January. He should be rostered in most leagues.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Racks up 10 rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors posted seven points (3-3 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal during Friday's 139-111 victory over the Grizzlies.

Since Zion Williamson's debut, Favors is averaging 10.2 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.0 block across 24.2 minutes. It seems likely he'll continue seeing similar usage the rest of the year, as Williamson has cracked the 30-minute mark, and the rotation could be relatively set from here on out.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Double-double in 23 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors finished with 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 121-117 loss to the Spurs.

Favors returned to the lineup following a one-game absence with a back injury and turned in his 12th double-double through 26 appearances. If he's able to stay relatively healthy for the second half of the season Favors could end up surpassing his previous record of 25 double-doubles across 73 games in 2013-14.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is starting Wednesday against the Spurs, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports.

As expected, Favors has been cleared to rejoin the starting lineup after missing Monday's game against the Grizzlies with a sore lower back. When healthy, the big man is averaging 13.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.9 blocks in 27.1 minutes in January (seven games).

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Should play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

Favors is expected to rejoin the lineup Wednesday after missing Monday's game against Memphis with a sore lower back. When healthy, the big man is averaging 13.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.9 blocks in 27.1 minutes per game in January (seven games).

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Andrew Lopez of ESPN reports.

Favors missed two games last week with a hamstring issue, but it was a sore lower back that kept him sidelined Monday against Memphis. The hope is that he'll be cleared to return Wednesday, but the team will wait to see how he feels after shootaround before issuing an update.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Unavailable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) won't play Monday against Memphis, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

The veteran, who most recently missed two straight outings due to a hamstring issue last week, has endured yet another setback, this time a back injury. With Favors out versus the Grizzlies on Monday, Jaxson Hayes will presumably start and see an increased role. Favors should be considered day-to-day moving forward and his next opportunity to take the floor looms Wednesday against San Antonio.

Pelicans' Derrick Favors: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors is considered questionable for Monday's game against Memphis due to a sore lower back.

Favors has dealt with a number of minor injuries throughout the first half of the season, and he most recently missed two games with a hamstring issue last week. Now, it's a lower-back problem that could keep Favors out of action. He went for 22 points and 11 rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Clippers.
