    Derrick Favors is questionable to face the Sixers on Friday for personal reasons.

    Favors is in line for a significant role when he returns to the floor. If he sits out another game, Jaxson Hayes and Jahlil Okafor will continue to see more time on the floor.

    Jaxson Hayes recorded 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in a loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Hayes got the better of Jahlil Okafor (two points, six assists, three rebounds, 20 minutes) once again. Hayes is looking like the big man to own moving forward, especially with rumors floating that Derrick Favors (personal) could be on the trade block.

    Jaxson Hayes had a solid outing vs. a challenging matchup against the Pistons on Monday, delivering 13 points, one assist, two steals and one block in 21 minutes.

    Hayes outplayed Jahlil Okafor, who had a weak performance with nine points, six rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes as a starter. Hayes is still the preferred big to own while Derrick Favors (personal) remains away from the team.

    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    The Pelicans have switched up their starting lineup for Monday's game, sending Lonzo Ball and Jaxson Hayes to the bench in favor of Kenrich Williams and Jaxson Hayes.

    This looks like a matchup decision, with Williams probably drawing some of the Blake Griffin assignment and Okafor better suited to crash and bang with Andre Drummond. The two replacements have streaming appeal tonight but we wouldn't change any valuations here.

    Derrick Favors (personal) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Pistons.

    Favors has been away from the team ever since the death of his mother and the team is not rushing him back until he is ready to return. Jaxson Hayes will continue to benefit if Favors needs another night off.

    Derrick Favors (personal) will remain out on Saturday when the Pelicans face the Mavs.

    With Favors out Jaxson Hayes will have a bigger role to play for the Pelicans, and Kenrich Williams will have some potential to be productive as well.

    Jaxson Hayes scored 17 points and blocked five shots in 33 minutes of action on Thursday night.

    The five blocks were huge for this line from Hayes, who is flashing his potential in the absence of Derrick Favors. We'll see how long Favors is away from the team.

    Derrick Favors (personal) will not play on Thursday vs. the Suns.

    Favors is dealing with something much bigger than basketball right now. While he remains out, Jaxson Hayes, Nicolò Melli and Kenrich Williams could see more opportunity.

    Derrick Favors is officially questionable to face the Suns on Thursday as he is dealing with personal issues.

    Favors is currently dealing with something that is much bigger than basketball. He will have a great opportunity once he is able to return to the court. Jaxson Hayes and Nicolò Melli will continue to see additional minutes if Favors misses another game.

    Derrick Favors has not yet rejoined the Pelicans following the passing of his mother.

    Nobody can blame Favors for taking his time. While nothing has been decided, it seems unlikely that he will participate in Thursday's contest. Jahlil Okafor and Jaxson Hayes should maintain their roles in that case.

    PF-C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jaxson Hayes moved to the bench Sunday afternoon against the Thunder and Steven Adams, but still found success with nine points, seven rebounds, two blocks and one steal.

    Jahlil Okafor wound up being a nonfactor as a starter (four points, two rebounds, nine minutes), and Hayes had the majority of the center minutes with 26 over the course of the game. He remains standard league worthy until the team gets healthier and he has a steadier bench role.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor will move into the starting lineup on Sunday afternoon.

    Okafor will replace Jaxson Hayes in this one, and it's a better matchup against the burly Steven Adams. If you're looking for someone who can grab a solid double-double, Okafor is a fine play for as long as Derrick Favors (personal) remains away from the team.
