Jerebko (back) is probable for Saturday's game against the Clippers, Kyle Goon of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Jerebko was questionable heading into Friday's game against the Knicks, though ended up playing 12 minutes and providing three points and a rebound.

Jerebko will draw the start Monday against the Pacers, Eric Woodyard of Deseret News reports. With Thabo Sefolosha out for the season with a knee injury and Rudy Gobert still out with a knee injury, Jerebko moves into the starting lineup. Jerebko is averging 3.6 points over 17.1 minutes this season, however the move to the starting lineup will likely lead to an increased role. His stay in the starting lineup probably won't last too long, as Gobert will likely move back into the starting five once he's healthy, bumping Jerebko back to the bench.
Jerebko will draw the start at power forward over Thabo Sefolosha for Wednesday's tilt against the Wizards, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. With Derrick Favors (ankle) out, coach Quin Synder has been forced to change up his starting five. Jerebko has started 14 games this season, averaging 9.1 points and 4.0 rebounds per game in those starts, making him somewhat of a fringe fantasy option even in an increased role.
