Derrick Favors played 38 minutes in Friday’s loss to the Clippers but managed to post just two points, six rebounds and a steal.
Favors shot 1-of-3 and missed his only two free throws on the night. While the box score is barren, credit Favors for trying to battle DeAndre Jordan in the paint. You get the sense that Utah would rather not push Favors into such a huge role but they really have their hands tied with Rudy Gobert out. While the minutes are great, he’s an incredibly risky fantasy play in a tough matchup.
