The Jazz are thrilled to get Derrick Favors back, he missed 16 games due to back spasms and Favors, although he has no experience as a doctor, knows the source of his back troubles.
“Try not to sleep on my stomach basically,” the former No. 3 overall pick said, per Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune. “I think that’s what caused it… I’m in the process of of changing my mattress now,” he continued. “It wasn’t soft, but it was kind of outdated. I had it for a couple of years.”
At least the man knows what caused his back troubles so he can fix it and he is making a lot of money so he can certainly afford some top of the class mattresses to solve the issue. They have plenty of mattress commercials on TV so he might want to invest on a good one to take care of his money maker and help the Jazz in their playoff push because they need a full squad healthy after suffering injuries from Dante Exum, Alec Burks and Rudy Gobert who recently returned as well.
