Utah Jazz: Derrick Favors shakes off 'terrible' shooting night to provide key contribution

It wasn’t that Derrick Favors’ jumpshot wasn’t hitting Wednesday night — it’s that it wasn’t hitting anything. The Jazz forward lofted up an air ball that fell short. From the baseline, he rainbowed a shot that sailed well over the rim to the other side. “Man,” Favors said later. “My shot was terrible tonight.” But when the Jazz needed a key play in an ugly game against the Denver Nuggets, Favors came through for his team. The Jazz forward tied with Gordon Hayward for a team-high 16 points and a...

Jazz notes: Is bed to blame for Derrick Favors' back injury?

Few things are as important as a good night’s sleep. Just ask Derrick Favors and the Utah Jazz. Favors missed 16 games while being sidelined for nearly a month with back and hip pain. At shootaround on Monday, Favors was asked again what he’s doing to prevent a recurrence of the injury. “Try not to sleep on my stomach, basically,” he said. “I think that’s what caused it.” Jazz coach Quin Snyder wasn’t exactly buying that story. “I think he might have been having a little fun [with the media],” t...

Monson: Derrick Favors is back, and hip, and not Carlos Boozer

Derrick Favors was back against the Pistons on Monday night, his back was back, his hip was back, and … it was strange. After missing a month on account of some combination of a bad back and a bad hip, with some ailment/diagnosis that not even Favors himself could pinpoint or name or fully describe, and after being downgraded from “questionable” for a previous streak of games to “doubtful” for the Detroit game, suddenly, he was good to go. And so, he went. “I feel pretty good,” he said, afterwa...

Derrick Favors, Dante Exum doing more each day

Dante Exum is still out for the season, and Derrick Favors is probably not going to play tonight as the Utah Jazz take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. But it should comfort Jazz fans that both are on the floor, working on their games. Both are moving around. Exum — who tore his ACL last summer — is back to light running. He’s doing ballhandling drills, and he’s shooting with assistant coaches. Favors likely will miss his 15th consecutive game, due to back spasms. But he was wor...

Utah Jazz Podcast: Chris Johnson stepping up, Derrick Favors' back, and is Gordon Hayward an All-Star?

An hour-long sports Podcast that goes over Utah Jazz topics and the General NBA While the Utah Jazz are making a lot of noise on the court (no, those aren't boos you hear . . . it's sarcastic cheers), we here at SLC Dunk haven't been bringing much multimedia of late. Thankfully some good people out there occasionally take pity upon us, and ask us to be on their shows. I recorded a segment BEFORE the Sacramento Kings @ Utah Jazz game last night with Phil Naessens on his show talking about our Utah Jazz. We had to touch on the season so far, all of the injuries, and the resulting...

Utah Jazz notes: Back injury keeps Derrick Favors out of 12th straight game

At this point, the Utah Jazz have to be concerned about Derrick Favors and his balky back. Even if the coaches and front office aren’t saying so publicly. Utah’s star power forward missed his 12th consecutive game on Thursday night against the Sacramento Kings at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Now for the concerning part: For most of his injury, Favors has been a game-time decision. He’s gone through his normal pregame routine on many nights. On some game days, he’s gone through shootarounds. But on T...
