Derrick Favors will miss his eighth straight game tonight while Shelvin Mack continues to recover from his ankle injury that has sidelined him since February 13th.
Rudy Gobert receives a significant bump in points, rebounds and blocks with Favors out of the lineup. Not that you have had him on your bench but if you are deciding between two big men for the week, Gobert should be locked into all lineups in most season long formats. With Shelvin Mack out of the lineup for the past four weeks George Hill has had a minor usage bump of 1.3 percent which puts him at second on the team with a 24.8 percent usage. Mack can remain on the waiver wire in all leagues while Favors hasn’t even been in the top-150. Owners hoping for a miracle can hold on, but it’s highly unlikely that Favors returns to form this year.
