Thabo Sefolosha SG/SF OKC 7 Days
Thabo Sefolosha (calf) said on Tuesday that he will need crutches for the next two weeks.
He is expected to be out for 4-6 weeks with his calf strain and the Thunder have already brought on Caron Butler to help soften the blow. Sefolosha can be cut in all leagues while Butler is expected to see 15-24 minutes against the Sixers tonight. Perry Jones III and Jeremy Lamb will also be part of the solution.

An MRI confirmed that Thabo Sefolosha has a strained calf, and GM Sam Presti suggested that he might be out 4-6 weeks.
The tests must have revealed a somewhat severe strain given the lengthy timetable, but at least Sefolosha will avoid surgery. He should be ready for the playoffs and in the meantime the Thunder will lean on a combination of Perry Jones III (who will start on Sunday), Jeremy Lamb, Reggie Jackson and newly-acquired Caron Butler.

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game and the Thunder have scheduled him an MRI.
The test results will determine how long the calf injury will keep him out, with guys like Caron Butler, Perry Jones III and Jeremy Lamb all candidates to start at SG while Sefolosha is out of commission. Sefolosha missed only one game last year and he hadn't missed a game since mid-December this season.

Thabo Sefolosha's hand injury was a non-issue on Thursday, finishing with seven points, four boards, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.
Thabo had a minor injury on Tuesday and was able to play through it. He's put up ninth-round value in 2014, but he'll likely be losing some playing time with Russell Westbrook pushing Reggie Jackson to shooting guard more often. Sefolosha is more of a steals specialist in deeper leagues.

Thabo Sefolosha injured his right hand on Tuesday, but played through it and finished with two points and two rebounds in 23 minutes.
He was icing his hand on the bench when he wasn't playing and should be considered day-to-day until we get an official report. If he were to miss time, Jeremy Lamb would quickly become relevant, and had 19 points tonight.

Thabo Sefolosha had 12 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on Wednesday, but hit just 3-of-12 shots.
Sefolosha played solid defense on Kevin Martin (8 points) and filled the stat sheet on the offensive end. He's averaging 10.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five games, meaning he deserves a look in deeper leagues. Just don't expect him to play quite this well on most nights.

Thabo Sefolosha quietly filled up the stat sheet in Saturday's easy win, scoring 14 points with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks.
He also turned the ball over just once in 39 minutes and this is an exaggerated version of his usual production, which has been good enough for borderline value in 12-team leagues this season.

Thabo Sefolosha scored 12 points on 3-of-5 shooting (all threes) with three rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes on Friday.
Sefolosha is locked into a timeshare with Jeremy Lamb but the absence of Russell Westbrook can only be a positive for him, so owners in deeper leagues should give him a look and standard league owners should simply watch from afar.

Thabo Sefolosa (knee) will return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Magic.
He missed three games with a right knee sprain and the Thunder were able to win all three by a margin of 16.7 points. Jeremy Lamb scored 13.3 points per game in that span and will likely see a smaller role. Sefolosha has some low-end value in fantasy leagues for steals and 3-pointers.
