Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

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.

Favors (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards. Favors was only able to practice Tuesday on a limited basis, but it sounds like he did enough to convince the team's training staff that he'll be good to go Wednesday. The Jazz will likely see what Favors can do at morning shootaround before rendering a final verdict on his status, but it's expected that he'll start at center and face no minutes limitations against Washington.

Trade talks regarding a Derrick Favors-Nikola Mirotic swap have reportedly progressed past the preliminary stages and are now getting serious. Favors and Mirotic make roughly the same amount of money, so this could be a straight-up swap, although the Bulls reportedly would like a first-round pick as well. If the Bulls bring on Favors without parting ways with Robin Lopez, Favors would find himself in an unfavorable situation fighting for minutes in Chicago's crowded frontcourt. A trade can't officially go down until January 15, and the Bulls have also received interest from the Pistons, so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Derrick Favors (right ankle sprain) went through portions of Tuesday's practice and he remains probable to play Wednesday vs. the Wizards. Favors has been able to practice two days in a row, so he should be fine for Wednesday's game. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Favors (ankle) was a partial participant in Tuesday's practice, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Unless further word emerges, he should still be considered probable for Wednesday's contest against Washington. Favors went through all of Monday's practice, so it seems possible his partial participation Tuesday was a precautionary measure the day before a game. More information on his status should arrive following Wednesday's morning shootaround. Over the past five games, he's averaged 14.4 points and 9.0 rebounds across 31.4 minutes per contest.
