Jerebko produced 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds and one block across 22 minutes in Friday's 106-94 win over the Hornets.
Jerebko generated his highest scoring total since Dec. 26 while leading the second unit on the night. The eight-year veteran had gone scoreless over a combined 13 minutes in the prior two games, and he'd generated no better than four points in any of the first four contests of February. While Friday's uptick was certainly encouraging, it also came in what was Jerebko's most abundant minutes total over the last 12 games. Therefore, he remains an option in only the deepest of formats for the time being, and the arrival of former Celtics teammate Jae Crowder at the trade deadline could eat into his opportunities even further.
Jerebko scored five points (2-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding two rebounds, two assists and one block across 18 minutes in Friday's 97-93 victory over the Raptors.
Jerebko was dealing with back issues about a week ago, but since then he has played around 18 minutes in every contest. That's probably what you can expect from him going forward considering he did not have much playing time in the first place, but it would be nice to see him increase his efficiency and cash in on the shots he's taking from the floor, as he is averaging under 25 percent from the floor in the last two games.
Jerebko is questionable for Friday's contest against the Knicks due to back spasms.
This is the first news of Jerebko dealing with an injury, so he may have aggravated his back during Wednesday's contest against Sacramento. More word on his status should arrive following the team's Friday morning shootaround.
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.
