Derrick Favors (knee) is out on Wednesday against the Rockets with soreness in his knee.
This comes as a surprise, as Favors hasn’t missed a game in over a month. He hasn’t truly realized the potential he has shown in past seasons from a fantasy perspective, but he has been much more reliable as of late. Favors has been a top-110 fantasy player since the All-Star break. His knees have bothered him all season, so he could be a candidate for rest days as the Jazz lock up a playoff spot. The Jazz do not play again until Saturday against the Thunder, so this could be ample rest for the big man.
