Should the Jazz shut Favors down for a while?

Favor's looks like a shell of himself right now. His defense has looked bad for a while... he's giving us almost no rim protection and he looks like he can barely jump. We're starting to have the same problems we did last season when Rudy was off the floor. Morgan and Ilyasova can hold down the fort for a while, I say we sit Favors for a few weeks and try to get his body right before the stretch run and playoffs.

yes. both him and bogey.

simply because we don't have much of choice.

it'd be a lot for us to give up if we want to offload their contracts that combine for 60mil in total for the next seasons

I think Bogey just needs to be better. Stop turning the ball over so much, stop driving into traffic, and give more effort defensively. I don't really think his struggles are injury related, physically he looks fine out there.

To be fair, Favors has looked like a shell of his former self for a few years now. The dude is just broken and has been for most of his career.

No. Perhaps have him on a minutes restriction for awhile. But then that could mess up Quin's rotation and we just can't have that.

I'm sure Quin told him exactly the same thing when he kept him on the floor at the 7min mark during the 4th. then he helped lead to a Warrior run that basically decided the game.

sometimes enough is enough. when the dude clearly isn't having his way, just sit him before costing us the ball game.

This. Frankly he is just not the player we need in that role, and when the 3 isn't taking falling he is a liability. Disappointing because I like bogey, but what he provides just isn't enough to offset the poor defense, lack of rebounding, and stupid turnovers.

Obviously, now we can see where Ilyasova can get minutes. He could give more rest to Favors and step in if Favors needs a break. Not much of rim protector from what I can remember, but otherwise solid player.
