Derrick Favors has been ruled out with right knee soreness ahead of the Jazz game Saturday against the Lakers.
The Jazz will be without Favors, Rudy Gobert (knee), Mike Conley (knee) and Donovan Mitchell (ankle) in this game. Georges Niang should be the biggest beneficiary with Favors sidelined.
Derrick Favors scored seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 FT) with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, and three blocks in Friday's win over the Hornets.
Favors did a little bit of everything with his 21 minutes, but remains off the fantasy radar for now averaging 6.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, one assist, 0.5 steals, 1.2 blocks, and 16.8 minutes per game over 21 games.
Jazz big man Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Dallas.
Favors is ranked outside the top-200 in fantasy leagues this season, averaging just 16 minutes/game. He belongs on the waiver wire.
Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors has been listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Dallas Mavericks with low back soreness.
Favors has previously been listed on the injury report with knee issues, so it seems as if he potentially received this back injury recently. If Favors is sidelined, Utah might look to see what they have in rookie Udoka Azubuike who has not played more than 10 minutes in a game all season.
Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors was listed as probable ahead of Tuesday's game against the Knicks as he deals with right knee soreness.
Favors should be on the court, but he hasn't surpassed double digit points in a game since Jan. 1 and hasn't been playing too many minutes either off the bench on a deep Utah team.
