Derrick Favors notched a double-double on Friday in a win over the Wizards, scoring 12 points (5-for-8 FG) and throwing in 10 rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes.
Zion Williamson (rest) was sitting this one out, so Favors got the start. He made an impact, but the volume was really only there because of the absence of Williamson. Favors still has an important role with Pelicans, though, and will continue to see minutes off the bench when Williamson returns.
