Favors ended with nine points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 108-100 victory over New Orleans.
EDGE Analysis
Favors continues to shift in and out of the starting lineup, making him a very hard player to trust in fantasy. When given ample playing time, he has shown he can still be a 12-team contributor. Unfortunately, this trend seems likely to stick and so he should really be viewed as just a streaming option.

Favors will start Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Thunder continue to alternate starting centers based on matchups, and they'll go with Favors to combat a more traditional big man in New Orleans' Jonas Valanciunas. In his last start Thursday against the Lakers, Favors posted 10 points and 12 boards in 28 minutes. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl will shift to the bench Wednesday.

Favors is not starting Sunday versus San Antonio, according to Brandon Rahbar of DailyThunder.com.
EDGE Analysis
The Thunder will have Jeremiah Robinson-Earl be their starting center. Favors recorded four points, seven rebounds and one block across his last two games off the bench. The lackluster averages indicate he will not be a promising option to fantasy managers Sunday.
