Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is progressing well and remains on track to return in mid-March.
The Hawks have allowed three more points per game (99.0) in their last ten games without Sefolosha, so they will be thrilled to have him back on the court soon. His return would likely reduce Kent Bazemore's role off the bench, but his limited offensive ability will keep him off the fantasy radar in most leagues. With season averages of 5.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game, Sefolosha belongs on the wire. Feb 25 - 9:45 AM

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) was seen shooting around with his right calf heavily wrapped after Thursday's practice.

Sefolosha went down in late January with a Grade-3 calf strain and he's not expected back for roughly another month. It's encouraging to see him on the court in any capacity, and he should be ready for the playoffs, but he's not a fantasy asset in any leagues.
Feb 19 - 12:21 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) said he heard a pop when he injured his right calf.

Sefolosha's calf strain is listed as a Grade III and he is expected to miss the next six to eight weeks weeks. Sefolosha can be dropped in deeper leagues, while DeMarre Carroll and Kent Bazemore will see more minutes in his stead. Carroll is likely owned in most fantasy leagues, but Bazemore is now worth a look in deeper leagues.
Feb 5 - 10:30 AM

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will be out for at least 6-8 weeks.

This is a tough blow for the Hawks, but Sefolosha was only averaging 19 minutes per game this season, so his absence shouldn't make too many fantasy implications. Kent Bazemore will likely fill the void for the Hawks, and with DeMarre Carroll also out with an Achilles injury, Bazemore is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Jan 31 - 6:22 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will not play vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

He was ruled out pretty quickly just like he was on Friday, so it appears that this won't be the last game he misses due to his calf. DeMarre Carroll (Achilles) is also out, meaning Kent Bazemore should see big minutes in a favorable matchup with the 76ers.
Jan 31 - 1:54 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (right calf strain) will not return against the Blazers on Friday.

The Hawks ruled him out quickly, so that's usually a sign that he's going to miss time. Kent Bazemore is the next man up with DeMarre Carroll (Achilles) also out on Friday. If you're in a deep league, give Bazemore a look.
Jan 30 - 7:53 PM

Thabo Sefolosha will start against the Blazers on Friday.

He doesn't really do much as an offensive guy, so there isn't much of ceiling here. In fact, he only has a 15.1 usage rate as a starter this season. Sefolosha is a low-end punt play in DFS tonight and will need some points in transition to hit his value.
Jan 30 - 5:57 PM

Thabo Sefolosha will move back to the bench on Friday against the Raptors.

He scored just four points in each of his last two starts while the Hawks rested DeMarre Carroll on Tuesday and Kyle Korver on Wednesday. Sefolosha has a usage rate of just 14.1 this season and hasn't been above 15 in any year since 2008, so he'll need the stars to align for a big fantasy day, especially in points leagues.
Jan 16 - 2:15 PM

Thabo Sefolosha filled in at SF with DeMarre Carroll resting on Tuesday, notching four points, four rebounds, two assists, one block and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

He was 2-of-5 from the field and 0-of-1 from the line without any 3-pointers or steals, and his 31 minutes were the most of any Hawks player. It was a typically understated line from Sefolosha, who has barely held 14-team value as the Hawks' main backup swingman this season.
Jan 13 - 9:26 PM

Thabo Sefolosha double-doubled against the Blazers in 28 minutes on Saturday with 13 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

This is the most surprising double-double of 2015 and it was his first double-double since 2010. Sefolosha has taken a backseat to DeMarre Carroll and fantasy owners can dismiss this fluky line.
Jan 4 - 1:46 AM

Hawks swingman Thabo Sefolosha notched six points, one 3-pointer, five rebounds and three steals in 23 reserve minutes on Tuesday, helping Atlanta to a 109-101 win vs. the visiting Cavaliers.

Sefolosha has been quietly effective over the past four games with averages of 8.0 points on 65.0 percent shooting, 1.0 threes, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.3 blocks. He's only worth a look if you need a dose of 3s and steals, and there are no guarantees that he'll keep up this pace considering he's averaged under 20 minutes per contest.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 10:19:00 PM

Thabo Sefolosha returned to action on Saturday and did not score in six minutes.

He said he needed an IV on Friday to get over his illness. Sefolosha is not worth owning in almost any league.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 01:33:00 AM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) is probable for Saturday's game against the Hornets.

He wasn't able to play Friday, so the Hawks will hope to have his defensive ability in a critical matchup with Charlotte. If he can't go, DeMarre Carroll will log as many minutes as he can handle with Kent Bazemore also getting some action. However, Sefolosha should not be owned in almost any league.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 01:04:00 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

With Sefolosha out, DeMarre Carroll will get all the run he can handle and he has a favorable matchup vs. New Orleans. Carroll logged 38.7 minutes sans Thabo during his last outing, scoring 14 points (two 3-pointers), to go with three rebounds an assist, and a block, and should have similar production tonight. Think about deploying him as a low-budget play in daily leagues.
Fri, Nov 28, 2014 01:03:00 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Friday.

He missed Wednesday against the Raptors and the Hawks were ripped apart on the perimeter. If Sefolosha is out, DeMarre Carroll and Kent Bazemore could play a little more.
