• Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (right knee soreness) was unable to practice on Thursday and is a game-time decision for Thursday’s game against the Nuggets.

    One gets the feeling that Favors is closer to doubtful here, as he hasn't been able to practice since his bout with knee soreness began three days ago. When healthy, Favors can be a difference maker in the big man categories, but he hasn't been healthy and has been overshadowed by his younger teammates in the frontcourt thus far. He's a strong hold, but given his injury history and the fact that his minutes have been limited, his ceiling has significantly lowered in the first week of NBA regular season action.
