Thabo Sefolosha To Miss The Rest Of The Season

Jazz forward Thabo Sefolosha will have surgery on an MCL injury in his right knee that will sideline him for the rest of the season, tweets Shams Charania of The Vertical.

Preliminary estimates give Sefolosha a recovery time of at least six months, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times (Twitter link), which means he should be ready for training camp next season. A final decision on surgery won’t be made until later this week, adds David Aldridge of TNT (Twitter link).

Sefolosha, who suffered the injury in Friday’s game, has been an important rotation player for Utah, averaging 8.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 38 games. He will have a non-guaranteed $5.25MM salary for next season under the two-year contract he signed with the Jazz last summer.
