Sefolosha (ankle) underwent surgery to repair a right fibula fracture and ligament damage Friday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sefolosha, who was involved in a police scuffle outside of a New York City night club earlier this month, will miss the rest of the season. He faces a lengthy recovery period and is expected to return to basketball activities in about six months. That timetable puts his status for the start of next season in serious jeopardy.

Sefolosha has been diagnosed with a broken ankle and will miss the rest of the season, Shams Charania of RealGM reports.

Sefolosha sustained the injury during an incident in New York City early Wednesday morning. Indiana Pacers' forward Chris Copeland was stabbed multiple times, while both Sefolosha and teammate Pero Antic were arrested on the scene. Both face multiple charges, and it's unclear what each player's future holds, from a legal perspective. Regardless, Sefolosha's 2014-15 season is over.

Sefolosha (not injury related) will not play Wednesday against the Nets, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Both Sefolosha and Pero Antic will be held out Wednesday after the pair were arrested at the scene in New York City where Pacers' forward Chris Copeland was stabbed early Wednesday morning. No disciplinary action has been taken against Sefolosha or Antic, so it's possible both players could return as early as Friday against Charlotte. However, Zach Klein of Action News 2 in Atlanta is reporting that Sefolosha sustained an ankle injury during the arrest.

Sefolosha was arrested outside a New York City club early Wednesday morning of obstruction of justice after Pacers forward Chris Copeland and his wife were stabbed, the New York Daily News reports.

Copeland and his wife's conditions are unknown at this time. Sefolosha and his teammate Pero Antic were both arrested, and should both be considered questionable for Wednesday's game.

Sefolosha finished with 19 points (7-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 24 minutes on Wednesday.

This was an aberration, he's only scored in double figures six times on the season. This was an odd game for the Hawks as Sefolosha was one of nine players to play 24 minutes. He's best kept on the waiver wire unless Atlanta decides to begin resting their starters for the playoffs.

Sefolosha (calf) saw just seven minutes of court time Wednesday in his return to action.

After he missed 23 games, the Hawks are content to bring him along slowly and figure out where Sefolosha fits into their playoff rotation. Don't look for him to make much of a fantasy impact down the stretch.

Sefolosha (calf) will play Wednesday against the Magic, but will have a minutes restriction, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

After missing the past two months with a strained calf, Sefolosha is finally healthy enough to return to the conference leading Hawks. His return won't have a massive fantasy impact, since Sefolosha is mainly a defensive player. He will probably push teammate Kent Bazemore to more of a bench role, though the rotation with Sefolosha in the mix will be a bit of a mystery as the Hawks continue to rest players heading into the playoffs.

Sefolosha (calf) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

With Sefolosha set to play in a game for the first time since Jan. 30, Kent Bazemore is in danger of losing some minutes. Of course, the Hawks have the luxury of resting players down the stretch, so Bazemore still figures to get heavy run in a few games. Sefolosha, meanwhile, will likely be eased back into action but could also eventually see heavy run when the Hawks elect to rest some starters.

Sefolosha (calf) will not play Sunday against San Antonio, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports.

Sefolosha is nearing a return after missing nearly two months with a strained calf. His next chance to return will be Wednesday against Orlando.

Sefolosha (calf) will not play Friday against Oklahoma City, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sefolosha has missed an extended period of time with a strained right calf, but he's expected to return in the coming days. Consider Sefolosha, who will not be a major fantasy factor, questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Spurs.
