Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Opts out of Orlando restart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha said Wednesday that he won't participate in the resumption of the 2019-20 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The 35-year-old forward will stay home while the Rockets go to Orlando. He held a small role with the Rockets this season, averaging 2.2 points and 2.3 rebounds across 10.6 minutes per game in his 41 appearances.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha (illness) is off the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Celtics.

Flu-like symptoms prevented Sefolosha from playing Wednesday, but he should be good to go Saturday. Across eight February appearances, he's averaging 2.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 12.1 minutes.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Out with flu-like symptoms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha won't play Wednesday against the Grizzlies due to flu-like symptoms, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Sefolosha will miss his seventh game since the New Year. With Sefolosha out, Jeff Green and DeMarre Carroll could see more time.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Sees spike in minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha contributed nine points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist in 26 minutes Monday in the Rockets' 126-117 win over the Jazz.

Playing time was up across the board for most of the Rockets' supporting cast, as Houston was without three big-minute regulars in James Harden (thigh), Russell Westbrook (rest) and Clint Capela (heel). At the very least, Westbrook will be back in action Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, so expect Sefolosha to be one of several players whose minutes take a hit. Sefolosha was averaging only 9.3 minutes in the Rockets' prior five games and failed to leave the bench on one of those occasions.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha (illness) is available for Saturday's game against the Nets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Sefolosha has been dealing with an illness lately, but he's finally healthy enough to play. In seven appearances this month, he's averaging 1.3 rebounds in 6.1 minutes.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha (illness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Nets, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.

Sefolosha missed the last two games due to the illness and his status for Saturday's contest remains up in the air. Regardless of his availability, the 35-year-old is unlikely to play a significant role for Houston, having averaged only 6.1 minutes in seven December appearances.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Officially out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha (illness) is inactive for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

Houston listed Sefolosha as doubtful in advance of the contest, so his inactive status doesn't come as much of a surprise. Sefolosha will thus be sidelined for a second straight game, but he's not a major part of coach Mike D'Antoni's rotation even in times of better health. Sefolosha had played in only four of the Rockets' seven games before the ailment surfaced, averaging six minutes in those appearances.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Unlikely to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha (illness) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against Golden State.

Sefolosha missed Monday's game due to the illness and is on track to miss his second straight contest. The 35-year-old is averaging only 6.1 minutes over seven games in December.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Unavailable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha (illness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Sefolosha will miss Monday's matchup, though his absence shouldn't have much of an impact on Houston's rotation. He's averaging just 6.8 minutes over his last five games.

December 23, 2019 06:12 PM
Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Handed questionable tag for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha is questionable for Monday's game against the Kings due to illness, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Sefolosha's availability for Monday's clash is now in jeopardy after falling ill. The team should have an update on his status closer to tip.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Logs 17 minutes in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha totaled seven points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds, two steals and one assist in 17 minutes during Saturday's 158-111 win over the Hawks.

Sefolosha swiped a season-high two steals while earning double-digit minutes for the seventh time in his last eight appearances. The absences of Danuel House (illness) and Eric Gordon (knee) have resulted in Sefolosha seeing a bit more time than usual lately, though he's still not very useful outside of deeper leagues.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Plays 10 minutes Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha managed three points, three rebounds, one assist, and one block in 10 minutes during Wednesday's 159-158 victory over the Wizards.

Sefolosha played just 10 minutes on Wednesday, similar to his workload across the first four games of the season. He is going to struggle to have a meaningful role this season, serving primarily as depth behind a number of other players. He typically provides strong wing defense and is a handy offensive rebounder. Outside of the deepest formats, Sefolosha is unlikely to have any real value.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Will sit out second Tokyo game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha (rest) is listed as out on the Rockets' injury report for Thursday's exhibition game against the Raptors in Tokyo, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Sefolosha is just getting some maintenance after he played Tuesday in the first leg of the Rockets' NBA Japan Games series with the Raptors. The veteran forward played 15 minutes off the bench in the Raptors' 134-129 loss, finishing with 10 points (3-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two steals and one rebound.

Rockets' Thabo Sefolosha: Lands deal with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha signed a one-year, minimum contract with the Rockets on Friday, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.

Sefolosha has been one of several free agents working out at the Rockets minicamp in Las Vegas and has turned that into a contract offer. Sefolosha not only has a history of playing with James Harden and Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City, but he should also be a good fit schematically in Houston. While he is 35 years old, Sefolosha still shot 43.6 percent from three with the Jazz last season and can be a versatile defender. He'll provide quality veteran depth to the Rockets' frontcourt this season.

Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Good to go for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

April 16, 2019 04:52 PM
Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Questionable for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Efficient in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Back in starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha will get the start in Wednesday's game against the Suns, Andy Larsen of 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.

April 2, 2019 01:48 PM
Jazz's Thabo Sefolosha: Sets new season high in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sefolosha generated 14 points (5-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes Monday in the Jazz's 111-102 win over the Hornets.

The point tally was actually a season-best mark for Sefolosha, who typically offers most of his impact on the defensive end. The 34-year-old saw a spike in playing time Monday with Derrick Favors (back) sitting out and Jae Crowder (quadriceps) exiting early, so it wouldn't be surprising if Sefolosha dropped below 20 minutes if either or both injured players are ready to play Wednesday in Phoenix.
