Favors (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers.
EDGE Analysis
Favors has missed the last two games due to a sore right knee, but he has a chance to return for Monday's contest. If Favors is held out once again, Ersan Ilyasova (hamstring) could be in line for increased run Monday.

Favors (knee) won't play in Saturday's game against the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Favors is still dealing with right knee soreness and will miss a second consecutive game Saturday. With Rudy Gobert also ruled out for rest purposes, Ersan Ilyasova figures to be the primary option at center for the Jazz, though they could end up deploying a smaller lineup with so many key pieces sidelined.

Favors is doubtful for Friday's contest against the Pacers due to right knee soreness.
EDGE Analysis
Favors, who has often had injury issues during his career, has been surprisingly healthy this season and hasn't missed a game since Jan. 29. However, he's likely to sit out on the front end of a back-to-back set Friday. In his presumed absence, Ersan Ilyasova could see more action.

Favors ended with five points (2-6 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one steal Wednesday in a 111-107 win over the Grizzlies.
EDGE Analysis
Favors hit only two of his six attempts from the floor and didn't provide much value as the backup behind Rudy Gobert. Although he didn't do anything special offensively, the 29-year-old has been an asset to the Jazz's defense all season, recording 1.1 blocks and 0.6 steals per game in the month of March.

Favors compiled six points (3-3 FG), one rebound and one block over 11 minutes in Friday's 124-116 loss to the Heat.
EDGE Analysis
Favors didn't get many looks from the floor Friday, but he was perfect in his limited opportunities in the loss. After posting his second-highest scoring total of the season Wednesday against the Lakers, he reverted to the mean on the scoreboard Friday and was unable to generate much production in other areas.

Favors had eight points (2-2 FG, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and a block in Monday's win over the 76ers.
EDGE Analysis
Favors doesn't play enough minutes to be fantasy-relevant in most leagues, but he continues to be an effective backup to Rudy Gobert at center. Over the last three games, Favors has totaled 24 points on 9-of-9 shooting, while hitting all six of his free throw attempts.

Favors (back) is available for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
EDGE Analysis
The veteran big man missed the past two games with soreness in his lower back, but he'll return to the court Sunday. Favors should reclaim his role as Utah's backup center behind starter Rudy Gobert.

Favors (back) was upgraded to probable for Sunday's game at Denver, Ryan Miller of KSL.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
The 29-year-old missed the last two games with lower back soreness and was originally considered questionable for Sunday, but he's now expected to be available. Assuming Favors suits up, he should return to serve his usual role as the backup center behind starter Rudy Gobert.
