Thabo Sefolosha    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Sefolosha underwent a successful surgery on his right MCL. Sefolosha suffered the injury a week ago, proceeding to surgery fairly quickly. He remains out indefinitely, with his timetable likely being around six months, meaning he could play at the beginning of next season. Alec Burks, Joe Johnson, Royce O'Neal, and Jonas Jerebko remain in contention for added minutes with Sefolosha out.

Thabo Sefolosha had right knee surgery on Wednesday. He is expected to miss the rest of the season to repair an avulsion of his MCL. With Sefolosha out, Jonas Jerebko will likely stick in the starting lineup while Royce O'Neale should stick in the rotation. The Jazz need Rudy Gobert (knee) back.

Thabo Sefolosha is scheduled to undergo season-ending knee surgery on Wednesday. We'll have a firm timetable once he goes under the knife, but he's done for the year regardless. It looks like Jonas Jerebko will be Utah's starting four-man until Rudy Gobert (knee) get back to the court, and Royce O'Neale could be looking at minutes in the 20s. Neither of those guys offers much fantasy value at all, though.

While season-ending knee surgery is still on the table for Thabo Sefolosha, he and his camp are reportedly still going over his options to correct the right MCL injury. Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reported on Saturday that Sefolosha is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery, but it sounds like Sefolosha is trying to avoid going under the knife. Surgery still seems like the most likely scenario, and with just late-round value on the year, there's not much reason to hang onto Thabo.

Thabo Sefolosha is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery on his right MCL, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports. Sefolosha suffered the injury during Friday's loss to the Hornets, and unfortunately, his season is over. Jonas Jerebko will likely be the Jazz's starting four-man until Rudy Gobert (knee) can get back to the court, and Sefolosha's absence should also open up some minutes for Joe Johnson. However, neither Johnson nor Jerebko offers enough upside to warrant a pick up in most 12-team leagues. Sefolosha's timetable is expected to be set at six months, so he should be cut everywhere.

Sefolosha will be out for the season due to surgery on his right MCL, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Sefolosha suffered the injury during Friday's contest against Charlotte. He's been a stable presence for the Jazz among various injuries, helping to fill in at shooting guard, small forward and power forward. With his season being over, coach Quin Synder will have to find a combination of players to take over Sefolosha's 21.2 minutes per game. That workload could be distributed to the likes of Alec Burks, Joe Johnson, Royce O'Neal and Jonas Jerebko. That said, it's unclear if any of them will see enough of an expanded role to warrant a significant uptick in fantasy ownership.

Sefolosha's knee injury, which he suffered during Friday's contest against the Hornets, could be long-term, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports. A definitive diagnosis is expected this weekend. Sefolosha has been a reliable wing presence for Utah this season, missing just four games and averaging 8.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 21.2 minutes per game while drilling 38.1 percent of his looks from long range. A long-term absence for the veteran would likely push Alec Burks, Joe Johnson and Jonas Jerebko into more prominent roles.

Thabo Sefolosha has been diagnosed with a right knee sprain and will not return to Friday's game vs. the Hornets. Sefolosha was doing some work on the sidelines when the Jazz ruled him out, so hopefully he's just day-to-day. Joe Johnson could pick up some minutes if Sefolosha misses time, while Jonas Jerebko would also be a candidate depending on the matchup. Sefolosha finished with seven points, four rebounds, two assists, one block and one triple.

Sefolosha will not return to Friday's game against the Hornets after suffering a knee sprain, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Sefolosha was off to a hot start in the second half until he suffered the injury. He subsequently went to the locker room. His night will end with seven points (3-5 FG, 1/1 3PT), four rebounds, two assits, and one block across 17 minutes. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, but the team does not play again until Monday versus the Pacers.

Sefolosha will return to the starting five Friday against the Hornets, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. The Jazz shuffled their lineup for Wednesday's game against Washington with Derrick Favors (ankle) out of the lineup, but with Favors now healthy, the team will return to its regular five, featuring Sefolosha at power forward. The move will likely come with an increased role after Sefolosha played just nine minutes Wednesday, his lowest total of the season.
