Rotoworld.com added that Favors is likely to miss some playing time. Rudy Gobert picked up the slack with nine points, 11 rebounds and five blocked shots in 26 minutes. Expect Gobert and Trevor Booker, who had four points and four rebounds in 14 minutes, to see additional time with Favors out.
Favors, in his fifth NBA season, is averaging 15.6 points on 56.2 percent shooting from the floor and 8.2 rebounds per game. The veteran forward out of Georgia Tech has played for the Nets and Jazz and has career averages of ten points and seven rebounds per game.
