It wont matter; tonight the Jazz will find out the Nuggets are the Real Deal look out Utah!

Well shoot. I was hoping he was the future Karl Malone, but we all know Karl Malone wouldn't miss a game because of a cold. Why can't more players take pride in playing 82 games?

I've heard it said that Fesenko gets migraines but that the team tells everyone he has the stomach flu. Why didn't they tell us Favors has pneumonia or something? Its really hard to root for a guy who misses a game because of a cold....

As for Price, I hope he gets well soon! I know people used to make fun of Boozer for missing games cause of a hurt toe. They probably don't realize how important feet are in the game of basketball. Its okay to question Booze's toughness, but I don't think anyone can question Price's toughness. He gives 100% every chance he can.

I bought tickets to tonight's game because I wanted to see Favors and Harris in person. If he misses because of a cold....I'll be HUGELY disappointed. I don't remember ever missing work because of a cold, and I would expect the same from any professional athlete. Remember when Jordan would play his best games with the flu? What happened to those days?

Houdini where are you? Your boy has a cold. You need to come to his defense!!
CJ would play right through it. He is tough like Malone!!

I can see why the flu would keep you on the sidelines. You would not want to have an accident in a basketball game. But a cold? Come on!

If comments don't have a language issue why don't you post comments D-News? Is it called bias?

You're right CJ, he would play right through it and jack up another 7-10 shots to go along with his 1-10 shooting night!

It sounds to me like the trainers are the ones that sent him home, don't blame the kid, he probably would have stayed and played in the shoot around and the game. I was hoping to see more of Favors, he is the one I will be rooting for the most to improve and thus improve the Jazz. Hayward is the other young player that needs a lot of minutes to improve and gain confidence. I think both of them are the future of the Jazz.

Ya, agreed Captain.

Along with Jefferson. People forget he is only 25.

Nice TNT our game more than likely won't start until almost 10pm. Ridiculous. Oh well those that live off from the government and don't work shouldn't mind, but responsible people do!
