Derrick Favors is expected to move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Clippers. Rudy Gobert (knee) has officially been ruled out for Game 2, so Favors should see his minutes in the 30s as Utah's starting center. Favors posted 15 points, six boards, two assists and one block through 32 minutes sans Gobert on Saturday, so that should be the baseline expectations for Favors moving forward.

Derrick Favors said that his troublesome left knee felt fine after logging 30 minutes during Game 1 on Saturday. "I felt good. It was my first time playing 30 minutes in a long time," he said. "I didn't have any pain in my knee, no discomfort. I was just a little fatigued." That last part might be an understatement, as he looked exhausted for much of the second half, but his strong effort helped Utah overcome Rudy Gobert's injury to steal a road win. With Gobert questionable for Game 2, Favors might be leaned on for big minutes once again.

Derrick Favors started the second half for Rudy Gobert (knee) against the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 15 points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 32 minutes. He was totally gassed at the end of this game and could barely get off the floor to go for a rebound. Since returning from injury on Apr. 7, Favors didn't play more than 21 minutes in those three games, averaging just 9.0 points, 4.3 boards, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 17.0 minutes. His legs are going to be feeling it tomorrow, and thankfully the Jazz are off until Tuesday. If Gobert is out, the Jazz will likely have to play Favors 30 minutes, which is almost certainly more than they planned.

Derrick Favors (knee) said he is "100 percent confident" in his knee. "I did a lot of treatment. I did a lot of work on it," Favors said. "We had different guys who’ve been out all year. It’s finally coming together at the right time. Everybody is relieved about that." This is the same guy that tweeted out he was basically playing on one leg, so he hasn't really held back on how he's feeling. Favors has only played 15.5 minutes per game in his last two active games and also didn't play on Monday. He'll likely be around 20 against the Spurs today, but he's not a trustworthy fantasy play.

Derrick Favors (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Spurs. With Favors back in action, Boris Diaw and Trey Lyles won't play quite as much. Favors will likely only be logging minutes in the teens, though, so he's not a great target in most settings.

Derrick Favors (knee) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs. It's somewhat surprising Utah is planning on having Favors suit up in the season finale. The Jazz can clinch the No. 4 seed with a win and a Clippers loss, but Favors sat out Monday and has been battling knee issues all season. Sitting him on Wednesday would have given him a full week of rest. Boris Diaw and Trey Lyles will see their minutes reduced with Favors back in the mix.
