Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors (right ankle sprain) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards. It's weird that Favors is being listed with an ankle injury, as that didn't appear to be an issue during Sunday's loss to the Heat, but the probable tag suggests this is nothing. Favors was able to get through portions of Monday's practice, and with another full day off until Wednesday's game, he should be fine.

Favors is dealing with a right ankle sprain, but is likely to play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Favors appears to have rolled his ankle, but it's nothing overly serious and he was able to go through portions of practice Monday without issue. If all goes as planned, Favors should be in the lineup as usual Wednesday, though fantasy owners will still want to keep a close eye on him all the way up through pregame warmups. If Favors was surprisingly held out, Ekpe Udoh and Jonas Jerebko would likely see increased roles in the frontcourt.

Favors scored 11 points (4-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, a steal and a block in 32 minutes during Sunday's 103-102 loss to the Heat. It was his eighth double-double of the season, and third in the last five games as Favors continues to fill in at center for the injured Rudy Gobert (knee). Gobert should be back in the lineup in a week or so, and shifting back to power forward could have an impact on Favors' production -- he's averaging 14.6 points, 8.5 boards and 1.0 blocks over his last eight games without Gobert next to him in the frontcourt, numbers slightly above his seasonal line.

Derrick Favors posted an 11-point, 10-rebound double-double on Sunday, to go with one steal, one block and one turnover in 32 minutes. Favors did briefly exit the game after Goran Dragic hit him with a knee-to-knee collision on a drive to the hoop, but he didn't need to go to the locker room and after taking a few possessions off, he got right back in there. This could be something that swells up on Favors overnight, but with Utah off until Wednesday, it might not be something that requires him to spend any time on the sidelines. We'll have a better idea on his status for Wednesday's game based on his activity level at practice.
