• Derrick Favors
    F/C, Utah Jazz

    Derrick Favors will move back into the starting lineup on Monday night.

    It's expected that Jae Crowder will head back to the bench though it's possible that he slides over and replaces Royce O'Neale, who typically fills in when Donovan Mitchell is out. Favors' benching on Sunday seemed like a matchup play as Crowder was better-equipped to guard Nemanja Bjelica in space and it suggests that the Jazz could take a mix-and-match approach going forward. Both Favors and Crowder are late-round plays, with Favors generally preferable unless you need Crowder's threes and steals.
