Derrick Favors received six stitches above his eye after Friday’s game and will attempt to play in Saturday’s game against the Cavs.
Favors flourished at center with Gobert missing extended time and may be asked to continue that role as Gobert’s knee situation is still awaiting an update. Favors is shooting a career-high 55.1 percent from the field and 73.3 percent from the line. He is putting up top-40 value over the last month and remains a good sell-high candidate.
