Sefolosha will be out for the season due to surgery on his right MCL and will likely be sidelined for six months, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sefolosha suffered the injury during Friday's contest against Charlotte. He's been a stable presence for the Jazz among various injuries, helping to fill in at shooting guard, small forward and power forward. With his season being over, coach Quin Synder will have to find a combination of players to take over Sefolosha's 21.2 minutes per game. That workload could be distributed to the likes of Alec Burks, Joe Johnson, Royce O'Neal and Jonas Jerebko. That said, it's unclear if any of them will see enough of an expanded role to warrant a significant uptick in fantasy ownership.

Sefolosha's knee injury, which he suffered during Friday's contest against the Hornets, could be long-term, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports. A definitive diagnosis is expected this weekend.

EDGE Analysis

Sefolosha has been a reliable wing presence for Utah this season, missing just four games and averaging 8.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 21.2 minutes per game while drilling 38.1 percent of his looks from long range. A long-term absence for the veteran would likely push Alec Burks, Joe Johnson and Jonas Jerebko into more prominent roles.

Sefolosha will not return to Friday's game against the Hornets after suffering a knee sprain, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sefolosha was off to a hot start in the second half until he suffered the injury. He subsequently went to the locker room. His night will end with seven points (3-5 FG, 1/1 3PT), four rebounds, two assits, and one block across 17 minutes. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, but the team does not play again until Monday versus the Pacers.

Sefolosha will return to the starting five Friday against the Hornets, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jazz shuffled their lineup for Wednesday's game against Washington with Derrick Favors (ankle) out of the lineup, but with Favors now healthy, the team will return to its regular five, featuring Sefolosha at power forward. The move will likely come with an increased role after Sefolosha played just nine minutes Wednesday, his lowest total of the season.

Sefolosha will move back to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jazz continue to switch up their starting power forward on game-to-game basis depending on the opposing matchup. In Wednesday's tilt with the Wizards, coach Quin Synder will go with a bigger lineup featuring Jonas Jerebko in the top unit, which sends Sefolosha back to the bench. However, Derrick Favors (ankle) is getting the night off, so Jerebko could spend more time at center, which could mean Sefolosha still sees a slightly expanded role.

Sefolosha will start at power forward for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jazz continue to alternate Sefolosha and Jonas Jerebko in the starting lineup at power forward depending on the opposing matchup. Against the Nuggets, it appears coach Quin Snyder will opt for a smaller lineup, pushing Sefolosha back into the top unit, with Jerebko coming off the bench. In three previous starts this season, Sefolosha has averaged 10.0 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 32.1 minutes.

Sefolosha will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pelicans, Kyle Goon of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite posting a double-double in his last start, Sefolosha will shift back to a bench role as the Jazz try to matchup with the bigger lineup of the Pelicans. Jonas Jerebko will step into the starting lineup in his place.

Sefolosha recorded 10 points (3-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds, three steals and one assist across 31 minutes in Saturday's 104-101 victory over the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Sefolosha locked down Cleveland's perimeter players and cleaned up on the glass when their shooters missed. Although he will never have a great offensive stroke, Sefolosha is capable of nights like Saturday's if he can get to the line and crash the boards.

Sefolosha tallied 11 points (4-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 126-101 loss to the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

Sefolosha did well with a rare starting opportunity in place of Jonas Jerebko, producing his fourth double-digit scoring effort in his last six games in the process. The veteran has typically come off the bench and offers some inconsistent offensive production in points and rebounds, keeping his fantasy value limited to deeper formats. However, he certainly remains capable of the occasional double-digit scoring tally, particularly when seeing a higher allotment of playing time than customary. It remains to be seen if Sefolosha will find himself in the first unit again when the Jazz tangle with the Cavaliers on Saturday night.

Sefolosha will enter the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Jazz radio play-by-play announcer David Locke reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it hasn't been clarified yet, Sefolosha will likely be starting over Jonas Jerebko, which would give the Jazz a smaller lineup heading into Wednesday's tilt with the Warriors. Sefolosha picked up a DNP-CD in the team's last contest Tuesday, so he should see a fairly significant jump in his overall playing time. That said, it's still a tough matchup overall, so Sefolosha likely won't be anything more than a punt-play for Wednesday's DFS slate.
