Jazz veteran center Derrick Favors (concussion) is probable for Wednesday’s game against the Thunder.
Favors missed the last two games, but should assume his role as the starting center in place of Rudy Gobert (knee). If Favors is on waivers, then he makes for a great short term add if you need points, blocks, boards and FG percentage while Gobert is out for the next 14 games. Ekpe Udoh will back him at center while Joe Johnson and Jonas Jerebko split minutes at power forward.
Update: Derrick Favors (concussion) is still probable to play vs. Thunder.
