"I don't know," Millsap said, grinning. "I don't know his qualifications as an athletic director, but he may be able to do something. Who knows?"

FAVORS SITS: Favors missed his fourth game in a row due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He was a game-time decision, but ended up sitting another one out.

Favors said his arch is "feeling good" after Thursday's light practice and Friday's shootaround. He doesn't want to push it, though.

"It just hurts when I push off, when I jump," the 6-10 forward said. "It takes a lot of explosiveness out of my game."

Favors downplayed concerns about the injury lingering.

"As long as I take care of it, (get) treatment, do the right things," he said, "I'm not too concerned about it."
