Analysis: The Jazz held Favors out to rest Saturday and he didn't participate in the contact portion of practice Monday. Coach Quin Snyder didn't know if Favors would ever be completely healthy this season.
Jan. 28 4:16 PM PT5:16 PM MT6:16 PM CT7:16 PM ET0:16 GMT8:16 5:16 PM MST7:16 PM EST4:16 UAE (+1)01:1619:16 ET6:16 PM CTNaN:� - Favors (rest) will not play Saturday.
Analysis: Favors is a nice fantasy play when healthy, but he can't seem to stay on the court for very long. Now, the Jazz are likely easing him back after he missed much of the early part of the season.

Analysis: It's been a disappointing season for Favors, but he's totaled 28 points and 15 boards in his last two games. These games bode well for his second-half performance.

Nov. 15 9:27 AM PT10:27 AM MT11:27 AM CT12:27 PM ET17:27 GMT1:27 10:27 AM MST12:27 PM EST21:27 UAE18:2712:27 ET11:27 AM CTNaN:� - Favors had four points in 13 minutes Wednesday after missing time due to left knee soreness.
Analysis: Favors hasn't been able to stay healthy this season and the Jazz certainly hope this time he can stay in the lineup. They'll likely ease him back slowly.

Analysis: Favors was just starting to find his rhythm again, but he's now suffered another setback. Despite his ability to put up big numbers, Favors just hasn't seemed to be able to stay on the court in recent seasons.

Analysis: Since a solid season debut, Favors has averaged 6.3 points on 28.6 percent from the field with 5.5 rebounds in four games. It might be fair to wonder if he's 100 percent healthy after missing the season opener with a left knee injury.
