Jefferson scored 14 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-3 FT) with three boards in 39 minutes in the double-overtime loss to the Bucks on Saturday. Jefferson had suffered an ankle injury in Friday's win over New York, but the injury did not limit his playing time in Milwaukee. He was the most productive member of the Cavalier reserve unit and just one of four players to score in double digits. Jefferson is averaging 1.5 3-pointers and 8.8 points.
Jefferson (ankle) will dress for Saturday's game, Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com reports. The report didn't indicate whether Jefferson would be able to play, however it seems likely the 35-year-old will at least record a handful of minutes if he plans to dress for Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Jefferson suffered a right ankle injury in Friday's game against the Knicks, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Jefferson underwent X-rays on his ankle and will be reevaluated Saturday. He is listed as questionable for Cleveland's next game Saturday in Milwaukee.
Jefferson came off the bench to score seven points (2-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT) with a pair of boards in 26 minutes in the win over Utah on Tuesday. Jefferson had been starting while J.R. Smith (knee) was out, but he returned to the bench and should continue to do so. His minutes may fall slightly with Smith back, but he can provide points and 3-pointers in a pinch.
Jefferson had five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) with two steals in 30 minutes as a starter in the Sunday win over Indiana. Jefferson scored 17 points off the bench on Friday, but was not afforded many offensive opportunities with Kevin Love and LeBron James scoring well. The veteran small forward will continue to start until J.R. Smith (knee) and Iman Shumpert (wrist) return.
