Sefolosha (hip) is available for Wednesday's game against the Rockets. Sefolosha emerged from Game 1 on Sunday with soreness in his left hip. He's been cleared to play and will presumably receive close to the 15 minutes of workload he saw in Game 1.
Sefolosha is listed as questionable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Rockets due to left hip soreness. Sefolosha scored just three points in 15 minutes off the bench in Game 1 against Houston, and he emerged from the outing with some soreness in his left hip. The injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but Sefolosha will likely end up being a game-time decision Wednesday.
Sefolosha posted 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), five steals, four rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Sunday's 113-109 loss to the Lakers. Sefolosha played the thief on the defensive end on Sunday with a season-high five steals. Throughout his 12-year career, Sefolosha has been a solid multi-category contributor off the bench. While injuries continue to plague him as he gets older, he can be a difference-maker in a reserve role when healthy.
Sefolosha will start at power forward in Sunday's game against the Lakers. Sefolosha will be getting his second start in the last three games while Derrick Favors (back) is still out. Sefolosha has played at least 23 minutes in each of the last three games, so while Favors is out, expect him to continue seeing extended action in the frontcourt.
Sefolosha will get the start in Wednesday's game against the Suns, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Sefolosha will receive his first start of the season, taking over at power forward in place of Derrick favors, who's out with a back injury. In 45 appearances this year, Sefolosha's averaging 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 11.0 minutes.
