I reported on December 13 that Favors left the game against the Miami Heat with an ankle injury after playing only ten minutes. He was seen leaving the arena in a walking boot.
Tony Jones, who covers the Jazz for the Salt Lake Tribune, tweeted the following update on Favors.
Jazz center Derrick Favors participated in portions of Tuesday's practice. He is considered QUESTIONABLE for Tuesday night in New OrleansRotoworld.com added that since the Jazz have three more games this week after Wednesday, Rudy Gobert should continue to see additional minutes in Favors' absence. Since Gobert is filling in nicely, the Jazz can take the conservative approach with Favors.
