Favors (back) no longer appears on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.
EDGE Analysis
Favors thus looks on track to suit up Monday after he wasn't available for any of Oklahoma City's previous six games due to lower-back soreness. Though Jeremiah Robinson-Earl is expected to continue serving as the Thunder's starting center, Favors could supplant Mike Muscala as the rookie's top backup.

Favors is out Wednesday against the Spurs due to lower back soreness.
EDGE Analysis
Favors was technically a DNP-CD during Monday's game against the Mavericks, though it's possible he was dealing with the sore back at that point. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Mike Muscala should occupy most of the center minutes in Favors' absence.
