Life as the first big man off the bench is filled with uncertainty, especially for someone like Derrick Favors.
On Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors, Favors’ situation changed again.
The second-year man from Georgia Tech found himself in the starting lineup when Al Jefferson went down with an inflamed ankle. Favors didn’t find out until about an hour before gametime. Upon learning he would be in the lineup, he went back to his locker room, threw on his headphones and zoned out.
