INJURY ALERT: Out | Knee | Out until at least Feb 25
Player News
  • Jefferson (knee) is hopeful to return shortly after the All-Star break, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Jefferson is days away from reaching the projected six-week recovery timetable he was given following his Dec. 31 surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, and while he could need some additional time beyond that to heal up, it doesn't appear as though he's hit any major snags in the rehabilitation process. The big man has also missed time this season due to a strained left calf and a five-game suspension, and only saw 15 and 18 minutes, respectively, in his two contests before suffering the knee injury, so he might not make for the most attractive stash option in shallower formats. However, his contributions as a scorer, rebounder, and shot blocker -- even in a limited capacity -- could make worth a look in most other formats if he's still in the wire.

  • Jefferson (knee) underwent successful surgery Thursday morning to repair a torn meniscus. Jefferson is expected to miss roughly six weeks. An MRI on Wednesday revealed the injury, which will likely keep Jefferson out until around the All-Star break. It's a major loss for the Hornets, though Jefferson's numbers are down this season, and the team has found success in changing its style to incorporate more shooters on the floor. As a result, new addition Nic Batum is enjoying a resurgent season, while Marvin Williams, Jeremy Lamb and Jeremy Lin have all rounded into strong rotational pieces. Jefferson's absence will likely result in increased minutes for Williams at power forward, while both Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky should see boosts in playing time as well.

  • Hornets' Al Jefferson: Will undergo knee surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jefferson will undergo knee surgery Thursday and is expected to be out six weeks. Jefferson underwent an MRI Wednesday that revealed the extent of his right knee injury, and he is facing an absence that could keep him off the floor until beyond the All-Star break. Cody Zeller will start at center in Jefferson's place Wednesday and figures to have another extended stint in the starting lineup.

  • Hornets' Al Jefferson: Ruled out Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jefferson (knee) will not play Wednesday night against the Clippers. Jefferson is battling some soreness in his right knee, and after being evaluated by the team's medical staff, he'll be held out Wednesday night, joining Jeremy Lin (ankle) and Spencer Hawes (back) in street clothes. In Jefferson's absence, Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminksy should each see an uptick in minutes.

  • Jefferson is dealing with soreness in his right knee and is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers. Jefferson has been plagued throughout December by a calf injury along with a five game suspension, but the sore knee doesn't appear to be a serious issue. The Hornets may elect to keep him out of the lineup Wednesday, or at least limit his minutes in order to ease him back into action and prevent any setbacks. If Jefferson's unable to go, expect Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky to play key roles in the frontcourt.
