Derrick Favors upgraded to questionable for Lakers game
Three days before being sidelined Nov. 16 in Miami with lower left back spasms, Derrick Favors turned in one of the best games of his 10-year NBA career, a 20-point, 20-rebound performance in a quality New Orleans home win over the LA Clippers. The Pelicans would love to have that kind of production and the center's invaluable experience back in the lineup soon; Favors was upgraded to questionable on Tuesday's injury report, ahead of Wednesday's home matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Also questionable on the New Orleans injury report is former Lakers guard/forward Josh Hart (left ankle sprain), who has not played in a game since Nov. 11 vs. Houston. Zion Williamson and Darius Miller remain officially out on the injury report.
