Jefferson (knee) will play Wednesday against the Nets, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Head coach Steve Clifford noted that he expects Jefferson's knee injury to be an issue for the rest of the season. This makes for a tricky fantasy situation, as Jefferson is one of the best low post scorers in the NBA, but he struggled to play through the ailment Monday, posting just three points and five rebounds.
