  • Jefferson managed zero points (0-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes during Thursday's 91-83 victory over the Jazz. With Kevin Love (knee) making his return Thursday, it was assumed that Jefferson would take a fairly large hit to his playing time. However, with Love on a minutes restriction -- playing just 20 minutes -- Jefferson still saw heavy run off the bench, but couldn't capitalize. The 36-year-old had been hot from the field leading up to Thursday's contest during Love's 13-game absence -- knocking down 56.3 percent of his shots and 47.5 percent of his three-point attempts -- but couldn't find the bottom of the basket against the Jazz. While he'll likely see his playing time regress closer to the 20.7 minutes per game that he's averaging on the season with Love back, coach Tyronn Lue isn't afraid to play Jefferson extended minutes if anyone on the team misses time.

  • Jefferson is expected to return to the bench for Thursday's game against the Jazz, Cavaliers play-by-play announcer John Michael reports. Kevin Love (back) will be returning to the starting lineup Thursday after missing the last 13 games, which sends Jefferson back to the bench. While Jefferson figures to see a slight downturn in minutes, it may not be by much, as Love is expected to be on a minutes restriction and should be eased back into the swing of things. That said, Jefferson wasn't necessarily a hot commodity even when acting as a starter and will remain off the radar in the majority of fantasy formats.

  • Jefferson contributed a season-high 16 points (6-6 FG, 4-4 3Pt) to go along with three rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes during Sunday's 117-112 loss to the Rockets. Jefferson didn't miss a shot on route to a season-high 16 points against a fast-paced Rockets squad. He's seen an increased role in the nine games leading up to Sunday since the All-Star break, averaging 8.7 points on 40.7 percent from three, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists across 25.9 minutes per game during that stretch. While he can likely be avoided in the majority of fantasy formats, his increased role can still have an impact in the deepest leagues, and occasionally DFS.

  • Jefferson will rejoin the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Heat, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Jefferson has drawn eight previous starts this season, posting averages of 7.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 27.6 minutes during those contests. That doesn't leave much to be desired in terms of his fantasy value, so despite heading back to the top unit for the ninth time this season, it may be wise to look elsewhere in DFS lineups Monday. With Jefferson back in the starting lineup and Kyrie Irving and LeBron James returning from a night off for rest, look for the likes of Deron Williams, James Jones and Kyle Korver to move back to the bench.

  • Jefferson will come off the bench in Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Jefferson started at power forward alongside LeBron James in Monday's win over the Bucks but will now return to the bench in favor of Channing Frye. As a result, Jefferson's minutes are likely to be scaled back a tad after playing 30-plus in each of his last two games. Jefferson and Frye will now likely split the minutes more evenly Wednesday, resulting in the veteran playing around 20 minutes against the Celtics.
