SALT LAKE CITY — Dante Exum was the only name on the Utah Jazz's injury report before last Friday's game against the Washington Wizards, but now at least two more players will miss Monday night's contest against the Charlotte Hornets, and it could be three.

The Jazz on Monday morning announced that Derrick Favors will miss the game because of back spasms, and the team said on Monday afternoon that Kyle Korver will be out because of right knee soreness. Additionally, the team announced Monday morning that Raul Neto is questionable because of concussion symptoms.

Favors played until halftime on Friday but did not return as Jae Crowder started the second half in his place. Neto exited the contest with three minutes to go in the second quarter. It is unclear when Korver sustained his injury.
