Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz



Derrick Favors (knee soreness) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Rockets. Here we go again. The Jazz don't play again until Saturday vs. the Thunder, so hopefully he'll be ready to go by then. Favors hasn't been able to stay healthy all season and posted on Twitter that he feels like he's playing on one leg. With Favors out, Boris Diaw and Trey Lyles could split his minutes, but they haven't produced all season.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz



Derrick Favors scored seven points with five rebounds, one assist and one steal vs. the Pelicans on Monday. He played 33 minutes, but he shot just 3-of-10 from the field for his second dud in a row. Favors posted on Twitter that he feels like he's playing on one leg, so that basically confirms that he's still not completely over his knee issue. He's worth owning, but it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz



Derrick Favors posted just nine points with two rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes on Sunday against the Kings. Favors appeared to be turning a corner, averaging 14.5 points and 12.0 rebounds in his first two games in March. He appeared to have an ultra-favorable matchup against a Kings team mailing it in down the stretch, but Rudy Gobert was a giant in the middle gobbling up rebounds and Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward were the primary scoring options. Favors was just along for the ride, much to the dismay of his fantasy owners.

Derrick Favors looked great on Friday vs. the Nets, scoring 19 points with 12 rebounds. This was his second straight double-double after he posted 10 points and 12 rebounds on Wednesday. Favors was feeling it tonight and shot 8-of-9 from the field, and he also hit his third 3-pointer of the season with three assists and one steal in 34 minutes. "I was hot. I was hot," Favors said. "I had the hot hand." This was his third highest workload of the season and he gets a great matchup vs. the tanking Kings on Sunday, so his fantasy owners finally have a reason to be optimistic. Let's see if he can keep it going.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz



Derrick Favors made 5-of-13 from the field for 10 points with 12 rebounds, one block and one steal in 27 minutes during a 107-80 loss to the Wolves on Wednesday. The Jazz were run out of their own gym, but at least Favors had some life in his legs. He played 27 minutes in both halves of the back-to-back set and has seen at least 24 minutes in every game since Feb. 6. We're not ready to say he's "back" to his old self, but his patient owners should feel a little better these days.

Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz



Derrick Favors scored 19 points on an efficient 9-of-14 shooting in Friday's 109-95 win over the Bucks. We were hoping that Favors would look rejuvenated after the break and tonight should be very encouraging for his fantasy owners. He played 26 minutes and added seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks, so hopefully this a sign of good things to come. The Jazz had "light conversations" with teams about Favors at the deadline, so he has a lot to prove to the franchise the rest of the season -- he will hit free agency during the summer of 2018.

The Jazz have had "light conversations" with teams about trading Derrick Favors, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical. Favors is still under contract for next season, but the Jazz could be in a pickle to re-sign him. Gordon Hayward will need a max deal, they already paid up for Rudy Gobert, and Rodney Hood will be a restricted free agent next summer, as well. To be clear, it would be a surprise to see Favors dealt today.

The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that the Suns have expressed interest in potentially trading for Derrick Favors. Favors has had a disappointing season due largely to a nagging knee injury he has been battling since training camp. He is averaging just 9.2 points (while shooting 46.9 percent from the floor and 63.5 percent from the free throw line) and 6.1 rebounds in the 40 games he has appeared in. Still, when healthy, he has shown star potential and he's locked into an affordable contract through 2018. According to the report, "Utah has been willing to listen" to offers for Favors.

Zach Lowe of ESPN said that the Jazz have explored the market for Derrick Favors over the last few weeks. Favors hasn't been the same since he suffered a knee injury during the preseason, but it sounds like the Jazz are just doing their due diligence. The Jazz are hoping to re-sign both George Hill and Gordon Hayward, so they are going to be financially strapped when Favors hits free agency during the summer of 2018. The Jazz don't want to weaken their team ahead of the playoffs, so if they do move Favors they probably wouldn't do it until the offseason. There's no reason to stash Trey Lyles outside of very deep leagues unless we get wind of something.
