    News

    Favors didn't return to Saturday's 109-94 loss to the Heat after exiting in the first half of the contest with lower-back spasms. He posted two points (1-1 FG), four rebounds and two assists in eight minutes before departing.

    Impact

    The Pelicans labeled Favors as questionable to return following his departure from the contest, but he was ultimately withheld from action for the rest of the night. New Orleans will finish out a back-to-back set Sunday against the Warriors, so there's a decent chance Favors is forced to sit out that contest. With Jahlil Okafor (ankle) also uncertain for the contest, Jaxson Hayes could be looking at a substantial workload at center.

    News

    Favors is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Heat with lower-back spasms.

    Impact

    The 28-year-old played only eight minutes during the first half due to the back spasms and had two points, four rebounds and two assists. Jaxson Hayes should see increased run while Favors remains sidelined.

    News

    Favors won't return to Saturday's game at Miami due to an apparent back injury, Scott Kushner of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

    Impact

    Favors was limited to eight minutes in the first half and had two points, four rebounds and two assists before leaving the game. Jaxson Hayes should see increased minutes in his absence as the Pelicans are now missing nine players due to injury.

    Favors finished with 20 points (9-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 20 rebounds, three assists and one block in 35 minutes during Thursday's 132-127 win over the Clippers.

    Impact

    Favors hauled in a career high rebounding total while logging his third straight double-double. After a sluggish start to the season, he is finally rewarding fantasy owners for their patience. If for some reason Favors is sitting on any waiver wires, he should probably be scooped up immediately.

    News

    Favors had 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 29 minutes during Monday's 122-116 loss against the Rockets.

    Impact

    Favors started for the fifth time this season, but he has registered back-to-back double-doubles in his last two starts. The veteran big man has been playing very well after recovering from a knee injury, and should remain as a steady fantasy option at center moving forward for New Orleans. He will aim to continue his strong showing Thursday at home against the Clippers.
