The Utah Jazz have a tough task ahead of them with the Golden State Warriors next on their postseason run. But that task gets even harder as one of their key players, Derrick Favors, is listed as questionable for game 1. Favors, who’s averaging 10 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game is suffering from lower back soreness, which could keep him sidelined.
If Favors can’t go Boris Diaw and Jeff Withey will see an increase in their minutes as they try to fill the void left by the 25-year-old Georgia Tech product.
Derrick Favors has lower back soreness and is QUESTIONABLE for tomorrow night's game 1
