• Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (knee) didn't go through shootaround and remains doubtful for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

    Favors already missed Monday's game and him not being able to practice means he probably won't be able to suit up on Thursday against the Nuggets. Favors has not looked like himself during the first three games of the season, and him not being able to practice isn't a good sign. The Pelicans are 0-4 to start the season and want to pick up the pace. If Favors isn't able to suit up, it will be Jahlil Okafor and rookie Jaxson Hayes getting his minutes at center. On Monday it was Hayes who turned in the better line and played the most minutes (24).
