Favors is starting Monday's game against the Clippers, Brandon Rahbar of DailyThunder.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors is set to make his fourth start of the season, entering the starting five with Luguentz Dort (shoulder) ruled out. The Georgia Tech product turned in solid scoring production in his last start Wednesday against the Lakers, finishing with 15 points on 7-for-8 from the field to go along with six boards in 26 minutes.

Favors will start Wednesday's matchup against the Lakers, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors' playing time has been all over the place, but he'll get the nod at center Wednesday. In his two starts this season, he's totaled 10 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes.

Favors will be held out of Tuesday's game against the Warriors for rest purposes.
EDGE Analysis
Rest and unpredictable rotations are part of the deal when it comes to any Thunder players, so it's not terribly surprising to see Favors get a night off one week into the regular season. Isaiah Roby, who did not see the floor in Sunday's loss to the Sixers, will presumably return to the rotation, while Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Mike Muscala will also be candidates to see minutes -- or even start -- at center Tuesday.

Favors closed with just six points (3-6 FG), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 loss to Philadelphia.
EDGE Analysis
Favors moved back into the starting lineup to match the size on the other end of the court, but he saw just 19 minutes of playing time and offered little evidence that he can be a viable fantasy asset this season. His role appears as though it could fluctuate from one night to the next, so there's no reason to target him outside of deeper fantasy formats.

Favors is starting Sunday against Philadelphia, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors played just 10 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss to the Rockets, but he'll join the starting lineup for the second time in the first three games of the season. Isaiah Roby will come off the bench.

Favors totaled four points (2-9 FG), nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 107-86 loss to the Jazz.
EDGE Analysis
Favors shifted into the starting lineup for the season opener but failed to deliver in what was a disappointing debut for the Thunder. Up against his former team, Favors was simply no match for the size of the Jazz, and his playing time reflected that. It is likely he remains in the starting lineup for the time being, but we would expect that to change at some point during the season. Until then, he is worth considering as a backend 12-team option, albeit one with very little upside.

Favors will start Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors is expected to primarily serve as Oklahoma City's secondary center this season, but he'll start the season opener at Utah, where he's spent the majority of his career. Coach Mark Daigneault indicated that context was partially responsible for the move, and he wanted to "acknowledge" Favors' connection with the Jazz. Isaiah Roby will come off the bench Wednesday but should reclaim starting duties soon enough.

Favors will not play in the preseason finale Thursday against the Nuggets.
EDGE Analysis
Favors is one of many Thunder players resting or injured for the preseason finale. He should be good to go for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Jazz.
