Derrick Favors was limited to non-contact work in Tuesday’s practice.
It makes sense for the Jazz to keep the pounding to a minimum and it’s fair to call Favors questionable for Wednesday’s game but without getting a bit more than this it’s probably closer to 75 percent or better that he plays. The idea for the Jazz is to keep slowly ramping up his minutes while checking his progress along the way. We still like owning him but the leash gets shorter every game. The All Star break could be a boon to his health, too.
Derrick Favors also only participated in non-contact stuff at practice today. Same as yesterday's practice.
