“It was good to get him (Derrick Favors) back out there,’’ said Utah coach Tyrone Corbin. “He does so many good things for us on the defensive end it really makes it easier for the other guys. Offensively when he can get the ball in his spots, he is really good.’’

The fourth-year pro from Georgia Tech had missed seven games in three different stretches since mid-January due to a right hip injury. The first time it was called a hip abductor strain, then it was a hip inflammation and most recently a hip sprain, which happened early in the Philadelphia game on Feb. 12.

Favors said the hip injuries aren’t a long-term problem.
