Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) was a partial participant during shootaround, but he remains questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Warriors. Favors sat out Monday's practice and the fact that he was still somewhat limited during shootaround isn't exactly encouraging. It looks like he'll be a game-time call tonight, and if he is indeed forced to the sidelines, Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey would have the opportunity for some increased minutes and Rudy Gobert would likely get all the run he could handle. Stay tuned.

Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) did not practice on Monday and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 1 matchup with the Warriors. Favors opting to sit out Monday's practice in order to really rest up his back should be viewed as a good thing, and it would be surprising to see him miss a playoff game with some back "soreness." We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity at Tuesday morning's shootaround, but if he is forced to the sidelines, Boris Diaw and Jeff WIthey would be in line for an uptick in minutes.

Derrick Favors posted a 17-point, 11-rebound double-double during Sunday's Game 7 win over the Clippers, adding three assists and one steal before fouling out in 30 minutes. This was Favors’ first double-double since March 3, and he stepped up big time for Utah with Rudy Gobert struggling with foul trouble for much of the game. He was also excellent on the offensive glass, posting an offensive rebounding percentage of 21.1, and he was a major X-factor for the Jazz, posting a net rating of 25.7. It'll be interesting to see if he can keep this momentum going into Tuesday's Game 1 matchup with the Warriors.

Derrick Favors shifted to the bench with Rudy Gobert (knee) active on Sunday, posting 17 points on 7-of-10 FGs and 3-of-6 FTs, with six rebounds, two steals, one assist and zero turnovers in 24 minutes. Favors averaged 34.3 minutes in the first three games of the series out of necessity, but that workload clearly took a toll on him. His scoring declined in each game and he simply didn't have it in Game 3 on Friday, scoring two points in 38 minutes of action. He looked rejuvenated tonight, expending more energy in fewer minutes, which is the best-case scenario for Utah's frontcourt.

Derrick Favors will come off the bench on Sunday behind a frontcourt of Rudy Gobert and Boris Diaw. Favors has been maxing out his minutes despite obvious exhaustion with Gobert injured, so his role should shrink tonight.
