Jazz's Derrick Favors: Blocks two shots in thumping win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (knee) will play Monday against the Lakers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

Favors felt good during pregame warmups and has since been cleared to take the court Monday night. He's come off the bench in eight games during the month of April and is averaging 4.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks across 14.6 minutes.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Favors has missed the last two games due to a sore right knee, but he has a chance to return for Monday's contest. If Favors is held out once again, Ersan Ilyasova (hamstring) could be in line for increased run Monday.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (knee) won't play in Saturday's game against the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Favors is still dealing with right knee soreness and will miss a second consecutive game Saturday. With Rudy Gobert also ruled out for rest purposes, Ersan Ilyasova figures to be the primary option at center for the Jazz, though they could end up deploying a smaller lineup with so many key pieces sidelined.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (knee) is out Friday against the Pacers.

As expected, Favors will miss his first game since Jan. 29. In his absence, Ersan Ilyasova could see an expanded role.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors is doubtful for Friday's contest against the Pacers due to right knee soreness.

Favors, who has often had injury issues during his career, has been surprisingly healthy this season and hasn't missed a game since Jan. 29. However, he's likely to sit out on the front end of a back-to-back set Friday. In his presumed absence, Ersan Ilyasova could see more action.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Inefficient in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors ended with five points (2-6 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one steal Wednesday in a 111-107 win over the Grizzlies.

Favors hit only two of his six attempts from the floor and didn't provide much value as the backup behind Rudy Gobert. Although he didn't do anything special offensively, the 29-year-old has been an asset to the Jazz's defense all season, recording 1.1 blocks and 0.6 steals per game in the month of March.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Perfect from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors compiled six points (3-3 FG), one rebound and one block over 11 minutes in Friday's 124-116 loss to the Heat.

Favors didn't get many looks from the floor Friday, but he was perfect in his limited opportunities in the loss. After posting his second-highest scoring total of the season Wednesday against the Lakers, he reverted to the mean on the scoreboard Friday and was unable to generate much production in other areas.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Plays 16 minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors had eight points (2-2 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and a block in Monday's win over the 76ers.

Favors doesn't play enough minutes to be fantasy-relevant in most leagues, but he continues to be an effective backup to Rudy Gobert at center. Over the last three games, Favors has totaled 24 points on 9-of-9 shooting, while hitting all six of his free throw attempts.

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

Favors (back) is available for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

The veteran big man missed the past two games with soreness in his lower back, but he'll return to the court Sunday. Favors should reclaim his role as Utah's backup center behind starter Rudy Gobert.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) was upgraded to probable for Sunday's game at Denver, Ryan Miller of KSL.com reports.

The 29-year-old missed the last two games with lower back soreness and was originally considered questionable for Sunday, but he's now expected to be available. Assuming Favors suits up, he should return to serve his usual role as the backup center behind starter Rudy Gobert.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Questionable at Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

The 29-year-old is questionable for Sunday's contest after sitting out the last two games with soreness in his lower back. Juwan Morgan has seen an increased role behind starter Rudy Gobert in Favors' absence.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) won't play Friday against the Mavericks, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports.

Favors was questionable heading into Friday's game, but he'll miss a second straight game due to lower back soreness. Juwan Morgan and Rudy Gobert should see increased run in his absence.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Questionable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors (back) is questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

Favors missed Wednesday's win over the Mavericks, but he might return Friday. A second consecutive absence for Favors would probably mean more run for Juwan Morgan and Rudy Gobert.

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors will miss Wednesday's game against the Mavericks due to lower back soreness, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Favors has already been dealing with knee soreness for most of the season, but it's the back that will keep him out Wednesday. Udoka Azubuike should see increased run in his absence as the primary backup to Rudy Gobert.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Favors is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks due to back soreness, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

Favors is normally on the injury report with knee soreness, but his back is acting up this time around. If he's ultimately ruled out Wednesday, more minutes could be available for Udoka Azubuike.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jazz's Derrick Favors: Will play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
