Favors in line for quick promotion

With Paul Millsap likely to miss Wednesday's home preseason opener against the Portland Trailblazers, Derrick Favors is likely to make his first start of the year, the Tribune has learned.

Favors, in Monday's season-debut, was Utah's best player, scoring 25 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. He was a force on offense, and was one of the few Utah players to make his presence felt defensively.

Favors by far outplayed Al Jefferson and Mehmet Okur, the two big men who started against the Trailblazers. For that matter, Enes Kanter was a bigger presence than both of the starters as well, despite going 1-7 from the floor.

Ty Corbin told the Tribune on Tuesday morning that he would definitely make changes to Monday's starting lineup, but declined specifically to discuss what those changes would be.
