Jazz's Derrick Favors participates in shootaround

Derrick Favors sat courtside at Smooth King Center, a pair of scissors in hand, waiting to cut the thick roll of tape from the right ankle he sprained last Friday at home against the Miami Heat. Utah’s starting center participated in shootaround on Tuesday morning. He went through all the rigorous running and cutting required to be effective in a basketball game. He appears to have the range of motion back in his foot. That’s good news for the Jazz. Favors is officially listed as questionable fo...

Utah Jazz: With added polish, Favors' game is getting smoother

New Orleans • The summer was one long workout for Derrick Favors, and yes it was repetitive and exhausting. But Favors realized he had the reputation of a dunker and a glorified garbageman around the basket. He simply demanded more of himself offensively. So Favors spent the offseason going to work on his jumper. Shot after shot, day after day, from every spot on the floor. He set up from 15-18 feet. He had to make a certain amount — usually 100 — from each area, before he could move on. It did...

Utah Jazz: Derrick Favors out against the Wizards

Like Friday night in the second half against the Miami Heat, the Utah Jazz will be shorthanded, and missing one of their most important players. Derrick Favors has been ruled out of Sunday’s matchup against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center, his sprained ankle not responding well enough to make a go of it against the Wizards. This is problematic for the Jazz. Not only will they lack size - either in the starting lineup or off the bench - they are going up against one of the biggest an...

Derrick Favors makes trip to D.C. despite ankle injury

Derrick Favors traveled with the Jazz to Washington, D.C., Saturday a day after spraining his right ankle against the Miami Heat. Favors jumped to block a shot with about 2 minutes to play in the first quarter Friday against the Heat and landed awkward. He was slow to get off the ground before limping to the locker room. X-rays on Favors’ ankle were negative, but he left the arena with a walking boot on his foot. So the fact that he traveled at all is a positive sign. Officially, however, he is ...

Flu keeps Derrick Favors out of lineup vs. Nuggets

Derrick Favors will not play Monday night against the Denver Nuggets. The Jazz big man was sent home from shootaround earlier in the day with a cold. “He went home with upset stomach, fever. Whatever the case it was, it hadn’t really progressed to the point where we thought we weren’t going to have him,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.” But the center’s symptoms apparently worsened as the day progressed, and Favors was ruled out about an hour before tipoff. In his place, Trevor Booker will get the ...

Can Favors and Gobert provide more defensive 'disruption'?

Looking for a way — any way really — to slow down the Clippers last night, Jazz coach Quin Snyder went with a combination we’ve only seen once before this season. Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert had played just one minute together this year before Saturday night. Against the Clippers, they played six minutes together. “I just thought from a matchup standpoint … those two guys gave us some length in the game and provided a little more disruption for their guys, whether it be [Blake] Griffin or som...
