Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (knee) will not play against the Clippers on Saturday. What It Means: Favors hasn't played since March 7, but he was able to get some balls up during Friday's practice. The Jazz aren't going to rush to bring him back anytime soon. Joe Johnson has struggled a bit recently, but he remains the superior DFS option to Boris Diaw, who was named the starter when the Jazz last faced the Clippers on March 13. Johnson has struggled with his shot lately, going 8-of-29 (27.6 percent) from the field, including 1-for-9 on 3-point attempts, over the...

What It Means: Favors is out indeiniftely with the knee injury, and there's no word on how long we can expect him to be sidelined.

Jazz's Rudy Gobert drops 13 and 13 with 5 blocks

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert blocked five shots in a 95-86 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, adding 13 points, 13 rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes. What It Means: The bad news is Gobert has made just 46.2 percent from the line, though. Gobert not having forward/center Derrick Favors (knee) around has been helpful for his stats because he is 5.4 percentage points better in True Shooting Rate without him, has a better rebounding rate, and a higher usage rate. Gobert should be a monster the rest of the way as the Jazz play for seeding. Since missing a game due to a...

Jazz rule out Derrick Favors for Saturday

Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (knee) is out again for Saturday against the Chicago Bulls. What It Means: He's basically out indefinitely and can be dropped in most leagues. The Jazz have liked their small-ball lineup and will likely use it again against the Bulls. That should help Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles, especially if a questionable Rodney Hood can't play. Prior to this news, our models projected Favors for 9.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 24.5 minutes on Saturday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (knee) and shooting guard Rodney Hood (knee) have been ruled out for Thursday's meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Favors will have his knee re-evaluated at some point in the next few days, while Hood is day-to-day after making an early exit from Wednesday's game due to knee soreness. Our models project Ingles for 8.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 29.4 minutes of action tonight against...

Derrick Favors (knee) sidelined for Jazz versus Clippers

Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (left knee bone bruise) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. What It Means: Favors will be re-evaluated "later in the week," suggesting he's also likely to miss the upcoming back-to-back set on Wednesday and Thursday. With the playoffs starting this week in some leagues, owners may want to simply bid adieu on what has been a disappointing campaign for Favors. Joe Johnson benefits the most for Utah as a result.

Gobert is questionable for tomorrow, probably a game-time decision In addition to the update on Derrick Favors, the Utah Jazz broke some silence on their other starting bigman: Rudy Gobert. Gobert missed the last game, against the Thunder, with leg soreness. It is likely that he may miss the next game as well, against the Clippers.
