Jefferson will start in Friday's Game 3 against the Rockets, Bobby Karalla of Mavs.com reports.

Jefferson has assumed the role of starting small forward with Chandler Parsons (knee) done for the rest of the season and it appears that the veteran will retain that accolade for the duration of his team's stay in the playoffs. However, the 34-year-old only averaged 13.5 minutes on the court over the first two games against Houston, while fellow small forward Al-Farouq Aminu averaged 21.0 over the same time span.

Jefferson will likely continue to start in place of Chandler Parsons (knee), who will miss the rest of the postseason.

With Parsons ruled out and potentially headed for surgery, Jefferson figures to remain in the starting lineup for Friday's Game 3 in Dallas. He got the start Tuesday, putting up seven points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 23 minutes. Al-Farouq Aminu was in the game for much of the second half, and he also figures to see an increased role in Parsons' absence.

Jefferson had seven points on 2-of-6 shooting in 23 minutes as the starting small forward Tuesday against Houston.

Jefferson split the most of the small forward minutes with Al-Farouq Aminu, who also played 23 minutes. However, Jefferson was unable to register any statistics outside of his seven points while Aminu had a more solid all-around game. Jefferson will likely continue to start in Chandler Parsons' absence, but Aminu will also get a good amount of run off the bench.

Jefferson will enter the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Rockets, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

With Chandler Parsons (knee) being ruled out for the contest and possibly at risk of missing the rest of the series, Jefferson will be counted upon to take on greater minutes. The veteran forward averaged just under 17 minutes of court time during the regular season, posting marks of 5.8 points and 2.5 boards. More likely than not, coach Rick Carlisle will take a tandem approach to replacing Parsons' production, with fellow wing Al-Farouq Aminu likely to see an uptick in court time off the bench when Jefferson sits.
