Derrick Favors (back) ruled out for New Orleans on Sunday after exiting Saturday's game early

New Orleans Pelicans forward/center Derrick Favors has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Golden State Warriors with a back injury.

What It Means:

Favors left Saturday's game against the Miami Heat early with back spasms and will not recover in time to play against the Warriors on Sunday. With the Pelicans dealing with an overwhelming number of injuries, Jaxson Hayes will likely play a large number of minutes against the Warriors.

Our models project Hayes for 9.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 20.5 FanDuel points on Sunday. He is priced at $3,600.
