Thabo Sefolosha SG/SF ATL 22 Days

Sefolosha (illness) returned to action Saturday, playing six minutes off the bench in the Hawks' blowout win over the Hornets.

Sefolosha was holding down the starting small forward position while DeMarre Carroll was sidelined with a groin injury earlier this season, but Sefolosha isn't going to get enough minutes going forward as long as Kyle Korver and Carroll are healthy. If you added Sefolosha earlier this season, he only has value in very deep leagues at the moment.

Sefolosha (illness) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against Charlotte, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sefolosha sat out the Hawks' last two games with flu-like symptoms, but he went through Saturday's shootaround and is expected to return to the court. The veteran is averaging nearly 23 minutes per game but doesn't hold much fantasy value in most formats.

Sefolosha (illness) is out Friday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Sefolosha appears to be battling an ongoing sickness, missing his second game in three days. He should continue to be considered day-to-day, but is not currently worth starting in most leagues when healthy anyway.

Sefolosha is inactive Wednesday due to flu-like symptoms, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's Chris Vivlamore reports.

He is not a great fantasy option even when he is healthy, and should be considered day-to-day going forward.

Sefolosha has started four straight games at small forwrard with DeMarre Carroll (groin) out. In Tuesday's game, he put up 10 points, nine rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 31 minutes.

Sefolosha has played well in his four starts, but the reality of the situtation for him is that he will go back to the bench when Carroll is ready to return. It's worth using Sefolosha in deeper leagues as a streaming option, but his value will dry up when Carroll returns.

Sefolosha will start at small forward Wednesday against the Jazz, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's Chris Vivlamore reports.

The veteran wing figures to see big minutes, as DeMarre Carroll (groin) and Mike Scott (back) have both been ruled out. We saw how minor Sefolosha's contributions were as a starter during his days with Oklahoma City, so despite the significant role, those in daily leagues should temper expectations.

Sefolosha is averaging 16 minutes per game this season during his first year in Atlanta.

The sample size is relatively low, just three games, but the veteran has seen less time on the court this season than he did as a starter with the Thunder for the better part of his career. However, he's proven in the past that his contribution to the box score is usually miniscule regardless of how many minutes he averages on the hardwood anyways. He will likely continue to provide depth off Atlanta's bench while only being a viable option in the deepest of leagues.

The Hawks will acquire Thabo Sefolosha in a sign-and-trade with the Thunder, with OKC receiving a $4 million traded-player exception and the draft rights to Sofoklis Schortsanitis.

Sefolosha's deal is worth a reported $12 million over three years. In addition, the Hawks will get the draft rights to Giorgos Printezis and some cash. Needless to say, neither Printezis nor Schortsanitis need to be on fantasy owners' radars.

Thabo Sefolosha is happy to have landed in Atlanta, and he "feels great" about his new contract.

Sefolosha also admitted that he could sense his time in Oklahoma City was coming to an end with the way the season ended. "The last month of basketball was a little bit tough and head-scratching for me," said Thabo. "Going from the starting five to not playing at all... I just didn't think that it was the right decision to make as far as the coach's decision of putting me on the bench... I think if I played more minutes maybe we could have beat San Antonio." That's a bold statement from a guy who was contributing goose eggs to the box score, but his seeming inability to contribute didn't deter the Hawks from offering him $12 million over three-years. It's easy to see why Sefolosha is so happy with his new deal.

The Hawks came to terms with Thabo Sefolosha on a three-year, $12 million deal.

This is a curious deal for the Hawks with their sizable cap space. Sefolosha was a major letdown last season and could barely even stay on the court for the Thunder in the postseason. He won't have much fantasy value and this move hurts the chances of the Hawks making a big signing.
