Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors racked up eight points, 10 rebounds, four steals and three blocks in just 24 minutes vs. the Pistons on Wednesday. Favors shot 4-of-11 from the field but had copious boards and defensive stats to satisfy fantasy owners. It's no secret that he and Rudy Gobert are an awkward fit in today's NBA, and sure enough, with the game in the balance coach Quin Snyder opted to bench Favors for the final 6:05 of regulation and all of overtime. His fantasy owners should at least keep an eye on the trade rumor-mill.

Favors generated 14 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 32 minutes in Saturday's 125-113 win over the Clippers. Favors' double-double was his second in the last three games, an encouraging sight from a fantasy perspective considering Rudy Gobert's recent return to the lineup. The 26-year-old has shot at least 50.0 percent in four of his last five contests as well, and he's hauled in no less than seven rebounds in eight January games. While his overall production may take a slight hit while once again playing alongside Gobert, Favors should remain a reliable source of scoring and rebounds for the balance of the campaign.

Derrick Favors ended up with 14 points and 12 rebounds over 32 minutes in Saturday's 125-113 victory against the Clippers. Favors hit 5-of-10 from the field while picking up three assist and a steal, and he had a game-best plus-18 rating. He is available, and some teams have called to ask about him, and performances like this will certainly help improve his stock and appeal. He remains a hold in standard leagues, but his short-term outlook is a bit murky. It might be best for his fantasy value if he remains in Salt Lake.

On ESPN's The Jump, Adrian Wojnarowski said that Derrick Favors is "available" and that teams are calling about him. Wojnarowski mentions the Cavaliers as a potential suitor, and it's no secret that they could use some rim protection -- they've also been linked to DeAndre Jordan. Favors has an expiring contract which is attractive to a team like Cleveland, and it makes sense for Jazz to entertain offers or he could simply walk as a free agent this summer.

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.
