Derrick Favors scored two points with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 38 minutes against the Clippers on Friday. He just doesn't have it right now, but the Jazz really have no choice with Rudy Gobert (knee) out. Favors could see a slight hit in playing time, but he's still too risky to use in DFS unless his price drops on most sites.

Derrick Favors started at center in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Clippers, finishing with 13 points, seven rebounds and one block in 33 minutes. Playing Favors at less than 100 percent for 33 minutes isn't ideal, but even though he was absolutely exhausted, he put in a pretty good shift tonight just like he did in Game 1. He finished 5-of-7 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line, and with Rudy Gobert's (knee) timetable to return still up in the air, the Favors should see 30+ minutes as long as his troublesome knee holds up.

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.
