News: Favors is dealing with a sore left knee and will not play in Utah's final preseason game against the Suns, Jazz announcer David Locke reports. Impact: This is the first mention of Favors having issues with his knee, although it's not believed to be serious since the Jazz would rather let Favors rest up for the long haul of the regular season than put him at risk for further injury in a preseason game. Looking ahead, Favors will likely be able to play in Utah's opener against the Rockets on Wednesday in full capacity.(RotoWire, )

News: Favors has remained healthy through five preseason games as new coach Quin Snyder's starting center. Impact: Favors experienced the best season of his career as a staple in Utah's starting five for the entirety of the 2013-14 campaign. He'll look to extend that progress alongside Enes Kanter in the frontcourt as the Jazz continue rebuilding the franchise with Favors as a cornerstone of that process.(RotoWire, )

News: Favors scored 15 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3P, 1-2 FT) with 11 rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes during Monday's preseason win over the Clippers. Impact: The Jazz center had a nice night, but it got overshadowed a little by Rudy Gobert's 20-board explosion off the bench. Favors' starting job isn't in any danger, but if the young Frenchman proves he's ready to take a major step forward when the games begin to matter it could cut into Favors' court time.(RotoWire, )
