Derrick Favors News
OKC acquired forward Derrick Favors from Utah on Friday. In addition, the Thunder will receive a future first-round pick in exchange for a 2027 second-round selection and cash. The veteran signed on for his second stint with the Jazz back in November, although he didn't contribute much, logging just 5.5 boards, 5.4 points, and 1.0 blocks throughout 68 games last season. It's apparent his best days are behind him, so it's likely he won't draw much interest during fantasy drafts for the 2021-22 campaign.
Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Indiana Pacers. It's the front end of a back-to-back set, so this is likely a rest day more than anything else. Ersan Ilyasova and Georges Niang are expected to see increased roles without Favors available. Niang has put together some nice outings, but is a risky DFS option for Friday's slate.
Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors (back) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets. Favors has a long history with knee and back problems, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Jazz ease him back into the rotation. Honestly, Favors wasn't doing enough to warrant adding in standard leagues anyway. He'll be a possible deep league option, but there is always the high threat of an injury.
Utah Jazz point/shooting guard Donovan Mitchell (concussion) and power forward/center Derrick Favors (back) have both been tagged as questionable to suit up for Sunday's game versus Denver. Mitchell has missed the team's past two outings under the league's concussion protocol, which has paved the way for Joe Ingles to excel among the starting five. Should Mitchell be cleared for Sunday, Ingles would presumably return to the second unit and be zapped of much of his DFS intrigue. Favors has been a solid bench piece for the Jazz, but he has very little season-long appeal due to his capped minutes total. Check back prior to tip-off to get the final word on the duo's respective statuses.
