Favors (back spasms) is out for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

Favors exited Friday's game against the Nuggets in the fourth quarter with back spasms and will not return, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Favors was having a slow game prior to his exit with just seven points in 19 minutes, and it's likely the sore back was at least part of the cause, as Favors had tallied a double-double in three straight games entering Friday's contest. With the Jazz playing again Saturday, the back spasms could potentially cost Favors more action.
