Derrick Favors (knee) and Shelvin Mack (ankle) have been ruled out for Thursday’s game vs. the Cavs.
This will be the fifth game in a row Favors misses and if you haven’t cut him yet, now is the time. His knee has restricted him all year and he’s produced his lowest numbers across the board in over three years. Favors likely needs the offseason to get healthy but he does not belong on your fantasy roster. Look for Joe Johnson to continue starting as a small ball four with Joe Ingles also picking up some time at the position. Mack is not a fantasy option with George Hill dominating minutes and Dante Exum showing some promise as his backup.
