Favors accumulated six points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 17 minutes during Monday's 102-99 win over the Grizzlies.
EDGE Analysis
Favors shifted into the starting lineup but failed to come through with the goods for anyone who took a chance on him in DFS. This has really been the case all season long for the veteran, often minimized as a result of the current direction of the team. There is certainly a chance he is moved before the deadline but even then, it feels highly unlikely he will have any real fantasy value moving forward.

Favors will start Monday's game at Memphis, Joe Mussato of The Oklahoman reports.
EDGE Analysis
The veteran center will make his 10th start of the season Monday, which pushes Jeremiah Robinson-Earl to the four spot. Favors has averaged 8.2 points and 6.3 rebounds in 20.7 minutes as a starter this season.

Favors racked up two points (1-7 FG), five rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 113-110 loss to the Pelicans.
EDGE Analysis
Favors surprisingly got the nod at center over Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, but it was the rookie who ultimately saw the lion's share of minutes (26). For Favors, it was his first start since Nov. 22 against the Hawks. Chances are, the Thunder will pivot back to Robinson-Earl for Saturday's game against the Clippers, but regardless of role, Favors remains a deep-leagues-only option when it comes to fantasy value.

Favors (illness) isn't on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Pistons.
EDGE Analysis
Favors participated in practice Saturday and Sunday and will be able to suit up against Detroit after missing the last three games with the flu. The 30-year-old averaged 5.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in 15.3 minutes per game across his last four appearances.

Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault confirmed that Favors (illness) practiced Sunday but is still dealing with symptoms of the flu, Nick Crain of SI.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors has missed the Thunder's past three games after falling victim to the flu, and rookie Josh Giddey picked up the virus shortly thereafter and was sidelined for the past two contests. Both players are no longer contagious and were able to practice for the second day in a row Sunday, but Favors and Giddey are apparently haven't shaken off the illness entirely, according to Daigneault. With that in mind, Favors can be viewed as questionable heading into Monday's game against the Pistons, with another update on his status likely to come following the Thunder's morning shootaround that day.

Favors (illness) practiced Saturday, Steve McGehee of News 9 Oklahoma City reports.
EDGE Analysis
An illness has kept the veteran shelved for three consecutive games, but it seems like there's a good chance he plays Monday against the Pistons. Over Favors' past five appearances, he's averaged 5.5 points and 4.0 rebounds in 15.3 minutes.

Favors (non-COVID illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.
EDGE Analysis
Favors was unable to practice Tuesday and will miss his second straight contest due to the ailment. Mike Muscala (ankle) is questionable and, if available, should serve as Oklahoma City's backup center behind starter Jeremiah Robinson-Earl.

Favors (non-COVID illness) didn't practice Tuesday, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors was a late scratch for Monday's loss at Houston, and he may be in danger of missing the rematch Wednesday. Mike Muscala (ankle) also didn't practice Tuesday, so Isaiah Roby could once again operate as the primary backup to Jeremiah Robinson-Earl against the Rockets.
