Derrick Favors will miss the regular season opener for the Utah Jazz against the Portland Trail Blazers due to a bone bruise and IT band soreness in his left knee.

Favors missed Utah's final five preseason games and was only able to participate in a limited capacity in Utah's final two practices.

Boris Diaw will likely start at power forward in place of Favors and second-year forward Trey Lyles should see an increase in minutes.

Utah is also without Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks.
