Jefferson (back) will play Friday against the Spurs, according to the Mavericks' official website.

Jefferson left Tuesday's game after experiencing back spasms, but the soreness will not prevent him from taking the court Friday night. He played at least 30 minutes in four straight games from Feb. 25 through Mar. 5, but he has not topped 23 minutes in a game since Mar. 6.

Jefferson is dealing with a stiff lower back and will not return to Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Jefferson should be considered day-to-day moving forward as he was only able to play for three minutes Tuesday. Looking ahead, the Mavericks don't play again until Friday so Jefferson could certainly be able to alleviate his soreness in advance of the Mavericks' next contest.

Jefferson started in place of Chandler Parsons again during Tuesday's victory over the Raptors, finishing with 11 points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and an assist in 26 minutes.

Jefferson reached double figures in points for the second night in row, but wasn't able to have the same success on the boards. He'll likely start one more game as a replacement for Parsons, before returning to a bench role. As soon as that happens, Jefferson will be very limited in his fantasy value.
