Hornets' Al Jefferson: Hopeful to return shortly after break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Al 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.

Hornets' Al Jefferson: Undergoes surgery, out six weeks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jefferson (knee) underwent successful surgery Thursday morning to repair a torn meniscus and 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, offseason addition Nicolas Batum is enjoying a resurgent season, while Marvin Williams, Jeremy Lamb, and Jeremy Lin have all become 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 | RotoWire

Al 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 | Special to CBSSports.com

Jefferson (knee) won't 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. The Hornets relayed that Jefferson underwent an MRI on the knee, which should reveal whether the big man's injury is more significant than simple soreness. Expect an update on that front later Wednesday or early Thursday.

Hornets' Al Jefferson: Questionable to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jefferson is dealing with soreness in his right knee and is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

Jefferson recently returned from an 11-game absence due to a calf injury and a suspension, but the sore knee doesn't appear to be a serious issue by comparison. The Hornets may elect to keep him out of the lineup Wednesday, or at least limit his minutes a little more in order to avoid any setbacks. If Jefferson is unable to go, expect Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky to take on increased roles in the frontcourt.
