Favors is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Mavericks, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors will come off the bench Monday with Jeremiah Robinson-Earl moving to center and Darius Bazley drawing the start at power forward. This shouldn't change the minutes distribution much as Favors played just 17 and 16 minutes in his two most recent starts. The 30-year-old should be in line for about 10-15 minutes of playing time Monday.

Favors racked up two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Sunday's 99-95 loss to Denver.
EDGE Analysis
Favors was back in the starting lineup Sunday but might as well have remained in street clothes. Favors has been terrible this season, plain and simple. His role fluctuates from one game to the next and given what we have seen thus far, there is no reason to chase him, even in the deepest of formats.

Favors (back) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Timberwolves.
EDGE Analysis
Favors landed on the injury report Wednesday with lower back soreness. If he's unable to suit up, Isaiah Roby and Mike Muscala are the most likely candidates to see increased minutes off the bench behind starting center Jeremiah Robinson-Earl -- who will be available for the first time since Dec. 26.
