The Utah Jazz expect to be without Derrick Favors and Jeremy Evans on Monday night, when they try to snap a two-game losing streak against Toronto at EnergySolutions Arena.

Favors is doubtful because of a hip injury, according to team spokesman Jonathan Rinehart. Evans is also doubtful after suffering a bruised elbow and tailbone in a hard fall in Friday night's 95-90 loss to Golden State.

Favors was injured on Jan. 17 at Detroit. If he can't play against the Raptors, it will be the fourth game out of the last six he has missed because of his injured hip.

Favors, the Jazz's starting center, averages 13.5 points and 9.3 rebounds. Evans, a back-up forward, averages 7.1 points and 5.7 rebounds. —
