Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors could be a potential trade target for the Cavs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Cleveland is looking to add some size, and Favors is available, so it'll be interesting to see if anything becomes of this report. Favors value in Cleveland would depend on the moving pieces, but it's tough to see him improving his stock with the Cavs. He's also been linked to the Bulls, but his value would likely take a hit there if they didn't also move Robin Lopez.

Favors totaled five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 28 minutes during a 99-88 loss to the Hornets on Friday. Favors (ankle) returned from a one-game absence and had a decent all-around game, despite the low scoring total. He didn't try to get his offense going, with only four field goal attempts. Favors will continue to be a solid option, but his value will decrease when Rudy Gobert (knee) returns.

Derrick Favors (ankle) was quiet on offense in his return to action on Friday vs. the Hornets, scoring five points on 2-of-4 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 29 minutes. Dwight Howard and the Hornets have allowed the second fewest fantasy points to centers this season, so the matchup didn't do him any favors. Rudy Gobert (knee) is scheduled to be re-evaluated later this weekend and the Jazz have been linked to Chicago's Nikola Mirotic, so Favors' rest-of-season outlook is a little bleak unless he is a part of any deal.

Updating a previous report, Derrick Favors (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Friday's matchup with Charlotte. Favors only missed one game with the minor ankle issue, and there haven't been any reports of a minutes limit, so owners can feel free to throw him out there for tonight's game. Ekpe Udoh will return to the bench, and as a reserve, Udoh can't be considered a viable target in most leagues.

Favors (ankle) has been cleared to play Friday against the Hornets, Jazz broadcaster Kristen Kenney reports. The big man missed Wednesday's win over Washington with a sore ankle, but the expectation all along was that he'd return to action Friday, as he carried a probable designation into the day. Expect Favors to move back into the starting lineup, which will likely push Ekpe Udoh to the bench.

Derrick Favors (ankle) will play Friday vs. the Hornets. Favors missed Wednesday's game with the minor right ankle sprain, but he's a full four days off, so he should be good to go without any restrictions tonight. With Favors back in the mix, Ekpe Udoh will lose most of his value with the return to the second unit, and Jonas Jerebko won't play as much.

Favors (ankle) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Hornets, Mike Sorensen of Deseret News reports. Favors was also listed as probable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Wizards, but he was ultimately ruled out after experiencing some discomfort prior to tip-off. So, while it looks like the Jazz are confident once again that the power forward will be able to make his return Friday, it's still a situation worth monitoring given what happened Wednesday. Expect an update on Favors following the team's morning shootaround.

Derrick Favors (sprained ankle) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets. Favors practiced on Thursday, so unless there's a setback at shootaround it looks like he'll be back in action. Ekpe Udoh thrived as a fill-in starter on Wednesday, with 16 points, nine rebounds, four steals and two blocks, but Favors' return would be a direct hit to his value.

Favors (ankle) will be sidelined for Wednesday's contest against the Wizards, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports. Despite being probable heading into the contest, Favors has ultimately been ruled out, as he apparently is feeling unexpected discomfort leading up to tipoff. With him out of the picture, Ekpe Udoh will likely see the bulk of the run at center, while Thabo Sefolosha, Jonas Jerebko and Joe Johnson are all candidates to see extra run in the frontcourt.

Derrick Favors (right ankle sprain) will not play Wednesday vs. the Wizards. This is very surprising news, as Favors has been able to practice this week and was listed as probable on the injury report. The Jazz are still without Rudy Gobert (knee), so they are very thin upfront. Jonas Jerebko, Ekpe Udoh and Thabo Sefolosha should all be expected to see an uptick in minutes on Wednesday. The Jazz will also likely be forced to play a lot of 'small ball' with undersized lineups.
