Favors has missed three straight games — and seven of the last 13 — with a sprained hip. He is the Jazz’s best interior defender. He averages team-high nine rebounds and 1.37 blocked shots.

It’s been a hip sprain, a sore hip, an inflamed hip and, most recently, a sprained hip. But one thing has remained constant: The Jazz are winless when he doesn’t play. With Favors missing his seventh game in the Jazz’s last 13 on Saturday, Utah fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves and dropped to 0-9 on the year in games without Favors. “I think everyone is confident in each other’s abilities but what Derrick brings to the table, this ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
