Derrick Favors stated that this is the healthiest he’s been in a year and a half.
Favors has had trouble staying on the floor the past two years, missing a total of 52 games. He had an extremely disappointing 2016-2017 season finishing outside of the top-150 in 9-cat leagues. The big man’s main concern is staying on the floor and even if he manages to do so, he’ll have to mesh with a new look Jazz. Gordon Hayward and George Hill leaving means that there is usage to go around, but with the addition of Ricky Rubio there’s no guarantee that the ball will be finding its way to Favors often.
