Derrick Favors (knee) “mostly participated in practice” on Monday.
There is a chance that he could return as soon as Wednesday’s game vs. the Thunder but for now we’ll consider him day-to-day. He was expected to be out indefinitely so this news is great for patient owners. The coaching staff will likely monitor his playing time for awhile to make sure he’s good to go for their quest to make playoffs. If he was dropped for some reason in your league, go pick him up right now. Trey Lyles and Boris Diaw will take a huge blow once he’s back.
UPDATE: Favors is officially considered questionable for Wednesday. He’ll step up his activities during Tuesday’s practice, go through shootaround on Wednesday and a final decision will be made by the Jazz. Look out for another update.
