• Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (left knee soreness) is doubtful to play in Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

    Favors missed Monday's game and is trending towards not being able to suit up again on Thursday. Fantasy owners likely spent a mid-round pick on Favors so it may be wise to hold onto the veteran for a bit longer before parting ways unless there is a sure-thing on the waiver wire. Jahlil Okafor started in place of Favors but it was rookie Jaxson Hayes who took Favors' minutes in the rotation. Don't assume that to repeat on Thursday as the Nuggets have a much different roster than that of the Warriors. However, it is possible that Hayes plays double digit minutes again on Thursday if Favors ultimately sits out.
