Pacers' Al Jefferson: Held out of rotation for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 87-81 loss to the Knicks on Tuesday.

For the second straight game, Jefferson didn't leave the bench, as coach Nate McMillan stuck with Rakeem Christmas as the primary backup to starting center Myles Turner. Considering Jefferson shot just 36.4 percent from the field over his previous four appearances and doesn't bring much value on the defensive end, it wouldn't be surprising if Christmas enjoyed an extended run on the second unit at Jefferson's expense.

Pacers' Al Jefferson: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson (mouth) will play in Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Jefferson has missed the last three weeks due to an emergency dental procedure, but the big man is good to make his return Wednesday. Jefferson will assume his role as Myles Turner's backup off the bench, but will still be limited in that role, as he hasn't played more than 20 minutes in a game since Dec. 26.

Pacers' Al Jefferson: Questionable Wednesday vs. Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson (mouth) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Jefferson has been sidelined for the past three games following a dental procedure last week, which has left his mouth a little sore. It's possible that Jefferson may have made enough improvement to take the court Wednesday, but even if he suits up, he won't be in line for a major role off the Pacers bench. Jefferson hasn't played more than 20 minutes in a game since Dec. 26.

Pacers' Al Jefferson: Ruled out Monday vs. Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson (mouth) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Rockets.

Jefferson underwent an emergency root canal last week and is still dealing with some lingering discomfort, so he'll be held out Monday for added recovery. His next opportunity to take the court will be Wednesday against the Spurs, but in the meantime, look for Myles Turner to potentially see a few added minutes, while Rakeem Christmas could enter the rotation as the team's backup center.

Pacers' Al Jefferson: Considered doubtful Monday vs. Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Nate McMillan labeled Jefferson (mouth) as doubtful for Monday's game against the Rockets, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Jefferson is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report, but McMillan's words probably carry more weight with regards to the big man's status. Jefferson, who underwent an emergency root canal last week, is apparently still in some pain, though he was able to travel to Houston with the team. In the likely event that Jefferson misses a third straight contest, Rakeem Christmas, who has seen double-digit minutes in both of the last two games, would likely stick in the rotation as the backup to starting center Myles Turner.
