Utah Jazz rookie forward Derrick Favors is back tonight after missing Thursday's game against the Denver Nuggets with a cold.
Favors was sent home from shootaround on Thursday and given some medicine by the team's medical staff in order to try and help get him ready for the Nuggets game. He didn't get well, and left EnergySolutions Arena prior to Utah's 103-101 loss.
Earl Watson will play, and Ronnie Price will sit for tonight's game against the Sacramento Kings. Watson was listed as a game-time decision after sustaining a lacerated lip against the Nuggets that required six stitches. Price will sit for the seventh time in eight games because of a sprained toe.
"Derrick is coming off his sickness, and Earl's lip (swelling) is kind of going down so I think he's going to try (and play)," said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. "Hopefully it doesn't get banged and the swelling gets worse."
