Derrick Favors (back) will not play on Sunday

Derrick Favors has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Los Angeles Lakers due to a back injury which has caused him to miss the past three games. Royce O'Neale will start in his place.

Fantasy Impact

O'Neale is worth a look in DFS lineups while Jae Crowder probably benefits the most. Rudy Gobert will lock down the paint with Joe Ingles getting a boost as well.
