Derrick Favors walked through the cramped visiting locker room on Wednesday night before the Utah Jazz and the Detroit Pistons matched up at The Palace.
When asked how his knee was feeling, "good" was the response.
Utah's starting power forward has been out with a bone contusion in his left knee, matching the contusion he's battled in the other knee this season. But his spirits have been high.
He will be re-evaluated in a few days, although there is no word on when he may return. In his place to start a four game trip, Jazz coach Quin Snyder started Joe Johnson.
