Derrick Favors    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Derrick Favors said he would love to remain with the Jazz, but he understands that scenarios exist where he could be traded next season. Favors will be an unrestricted free agent during the 2018 offseason, and with Utah set to give a max deal to Gordon Hayward this summer, and both Dante Exum and Rodney Hood eligible for contract extensions, the Jazz may not have enough money to be able to retain Favors during free agency. Favors struggled with injuries during his 2016-17 campaign and put up some of his worst numbers since his rookie year, so he'll have a lot to prove next season in a contract year.

Derrick Favors said he "definitely" feels "100 percent going into the summer." Favors acknowledged that he was probably only about 50-60 percent healthy when he initially returned from the knee on April 7, but he feels fine now. While it's nice to know that Favors won't be carrying any lingering issues into the offseason, him saying that he feels 100 percent would imply that the back issue didn't factor much into his ineffective play during Utah's second-round series against Golden State. Favors played in a career-low 50 games this season and didn't even crack the top-150 all year long, so he likely made a lot of people's never again lists this year.

Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) played just 12 minutes in Game 1 vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, scoring four points on 2-of-5 shooting with five rebounds. He didn't look right and probably isn't anywhere close to 100 percent. He missed Monday's practice and was limited at the morning shootaround, so we wouldn't call him a lock to play in Game 2 based on how he looked tonight. The Jazz went with Boris Diaw for 20 minutes off the bench, so fantasy owners will have a hard time trusting any big man not named Rudy Gobert for the duration of this series.

Updating a previous report, Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) will play in Game 1 vs. the Warriors. After sitting out of Monday's practice and most of Tuesday's morning shootaround, Favors was able to go through warmups and is ready to go for Game 1. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.

Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) is expected to play in Game 1 vs. the Warriors on Tuesday. He missed Monday's practice and was limited at the morning shootaround, so don't expect him to be 100 percent tonight. We should have confirmation of his status right after pre-game warmups.

Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) was a partial participant during shootaround, but he remains questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Warriors. Favors sat out Monday's practice and the fact that he was still somewhat limited during shootaround isn't exactly encouraging. It looks like he'll be a game-time call tonight, and if he is indeed forced to the sidelines, Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey would have the opportunity for some increased minutes and Rudy Gobert would likely get all the run he could handle. Stay tuned.
