Derrick Favors (personal) expected to play for Pelicans on Wednesday
New Orleans Pelicans forward/center Derrick Favors (personal) is expected to play Wednesday versus the Milwaukee Bucks.
"That's the plan right now," Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said after Tuesday's practice. "We'll see. He practiced today and seemed to be ok." Favors has missed close to a month of action following the death of his mother. Jahlil Okafor and Jaxson Hayes have seen extended minutes in Favors' absence.
Favors is averaging 23.5 FanDuel points per game this season. numberFire's models project him for 27.8 FanDuel points in Wednesday's return.
