Jonas Jerebko started in place of Derrick Favors (knee soreness) on Tuesday vs. the Hawks, finishing scoreless in 13 minutes with five rebounds.

He missed all four of his shots and didn't see the floor much with the Jazz opting to go small. Even if Favors misses additional time, Jerebko is safe to leave on the waiver wire.
Mar 20 - 11:41 PM

Jonas Jerebko will start in place of Derrick Favors (knee soreness) on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

Jerebko has made 18 starts this season, averaging 9.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.4 triples in 20.7 minutes. You would have to be in a deep league to even consider using him. Expect more small ball tonight with Jae Crowder and maybe Royce O'Neale picking up some extra minutes.
Mar 20 - 8:22 PM

Jonas Jerebko had five points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 12 minutes during Wednesday's lopsided win in Indianapolis.

Jerebko made a fill-in start for Derrick Favors (neck) on Monday, posting 12 points, four rebounds, three 3-pointers and one steal in 20 minutes of action. Favors was back in action tonight, however, so Jerebko's role took a predictable dive -- prior to Monday's game, he'd scored double-digit points just three times since Dec. 1.
Mar 7 - 9:49 PM

Jonas Jerebko will move back to the bench on Wednesday.

He may not be in the rotation at all with Derrick Favors back and Jae Crowder playing well.
Mar 7 - 6:28 PM

Jonas Jerebko hit 4-of-6 shots and three 3-pointers for 12 points, four rebounds and a steal in a start for the Jazz on Monday.

Derrick Favors was a late scratch with neck spasms, so Jerebko got the start. Favors is day-to-day and the Jazz have a lot to play for, so Jerebko still belongs on waivers for now. But he played fairly well tonight, especially with the 3-point shooting.
Mar 5 - 11:37 PM

Jonas Jerebko will start on Monday vs. the Magic.

Derrick Favors is sitting out with neck spasms, but he's likely day-to-day. Jerebko is a low-end streaming option in deeper leagues and is averaging 8.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.4 triples in 17 fill-in starts this season.
Mar 5 - 8:40 PM

Jonas Jerebko (back) is probable for Saturday against the Clippers.

The Jazz played him 12 minutes on Friday with Rudy Gobert back for that loss. Jerebko could get minutes around 12 again because Rodney Hood (leg) is questionable, but you can't count on him in fantasy.
Jan 20 - 2:49 PM

Jonas Jerebko scored three points with one rebound in 12 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

Now that Rudy Gobert is back, Jerebko could find himself out of the rotation in some matchups. Drop him.
Jan 20 - 1:18 AM

Jonas Jerebko (back spasms) is available on Friday vs. the Knicks.

Rudy Gobert (knee) is back in the lineup and will see about 24 minutes, so Jerebko isn't a lock to see any action. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 19 - 9:47 PM

Jonas Jerebko (back spasms) is a game-time call vs. the Knicks on Friday.

His status may not matter with Rudy Gobert (knee) back, but there will be certain matchups when the Jazz will need him. We'll have an update shortly.
Jan 19 - 8:48 PM

Jonas Jerebko (back spasms) is questionable for Friday against the Knicks.

The Jazz may not need him with Rudy Gobert (knee) probable to play. Derrick Favors would likely slide over to more power forward, so Jerebko may be out of the rotation anyway.
Jan 18 - 8:17 PM

Jonas Jerebko was a starter in name only on Wednesday, finishing with seven points, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 11 minutes.

Utah doesn't have a reliable starting PF in the mold of today's NBA -- even with Rudy Gobert (knee) healthy, Derrick Favors is an obviously awkward fit. They've been linked to Nikola Mirotic in trade talks, and one way or another it's likely they'll find a PF before the trade deadline. Either way, Jerebko is a fantasy pariah.
Jan 18 - 1:20 AM

Jonas Jerebko is back in the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Pacers.

Rudy Gobert (knee) is at least a week away from a return and Thabo Sefolosha may need season-ending knee surgery, so Jerebko may have some low-end value as a 3-point specialist this week. His long-term outlook isn't great, though.
Jan 15 - 8:23 PM

Jonas Jerebko returned to the bench on Friday vs. the Hornets with zero points and one missed shot in five minutes.

He was headed towards a DNP-CD, but Thabo Sefolosha sprained his right knee and didn't return. Jerebko may see a handful of minutes if Sefolosha misses time, but he belongs on the waiver wire in the vast majority of leagues.
