Description: Mavericks forward Richard Jefferson will start on Friday versus the Heat.
Insight: Jefferson was pretty goo in the last game without Chandler Parsons, 13 points, 13 rebounds, two 3-pointers and just two turnovers, so he is an option for a plug-in play.
 
12/13/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Mavericks forward Richard Jefferson got a rare start and played well in Saturday's loss to Golden State.
Insight: With Chandler Parsons out, Jefferson recorded 13 points, 13 rebounds, two 3-pointers, and two turnovers. Owners should not expect numbers like that again this season. Leave Jefferson on the waiver wire.

Description: Richard Jefferson will get the start at small forward Wednesday versus Brooklyn. SOURCE: Jazz on Twitter
Insight: Jefferson (10.0 ppg) was dealing with stomach cramps earlier in the week but it looks like he's going to be okay. The 33-year-old hasn't missed a game yet this season.
 
2/18/2014 5:26:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Richard Jefferson left Tuesday's practice with stomach issues, according to Steve Luhm of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: Jefferson is listed as a game-time decision for Wednesday. The veteran has started all 52 of the games he has played this season and is averaging 26.8 minutes, 10 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. Gordon Hayward, Alec Burks and Marvin Williams would absorb his minutes if he cannot play.
 
1/31/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Richard Jefferson (illness) will play Friday against the Warriors, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.
Insight: The tanking Jazz have started the 33-year-old in every game this season and he has averaged 27 minutes, 10 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.5 threes per game.
 
1/31/2014 5:07:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Richard Jefferson is dealing with a stomach virus and will be a game-time decision Friday against Golden State.
Insight: The tanking Jazz have started the 33-year-old in all 45 games this season and he has averaged 27 minutes, 10 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.5 threes per game. If he has to miss Friday's game it would be beneficial for Alec Burks and Jeremy Evans.
 
12/26/2013 6:56:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Richard Jefferson is expected to be a game-time call Friday night against the Lakers. SOURCE: Jazz on Twitter
Insight: The 33-year-old is battling a back injury. Jefferson has posted double-digit points twice in a row after being held to single digits in his previous four outings. Even though he's getting decent playing time (26.5 mpg), we wouldn't recommend using Jefferson in fantasy.
 
7/6/2013 6:33:00 PM
Description: Richard Jefferson was shipped to Utah Friday as part of a four-player trade. SOURCE: Contra Costa Times
Insight: Golden State sent Jefferson, Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush and a slew of draft picks to the Jazz for Kevin Murphy in what equates to basically a straight salary dump. The deal freed up cap space, which the Warriors promptly used to sign free agent guard/forward Andre Iguodala. At age 33, Jefferson isn't the stat-stuffer that he used to be. He averaged a career-low 3.1 ppg during the 2012-13 campaign. Fantasy owners can probably ignore him next season.
 
12/2/2012 10:24:00 AM
Description: Warriors small forward Richard Jefferson is doubtful for Monday's game against Orlando. Jefferson is working his way back from a strained calf.
Insight: Jefferson hasn't played since Nov.18. He was a worthwhile fantasy player earlier in his career but that was quite a few years ago. At this stage of his career, Jefferson (4.2 ppg) shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters.
 
11/30/2012 12:34:00 PM
Description: Warriors small forward Richard Jefferson is doubtful for Saturday's game against Indiana. Jefferson is working his way back from a strained calf.
Insight: Jefferson hasn't played since Nov.18. He was a worthwhile fantasy player earlier in his career but that was quite a few years ago. At this stage of his career, Jefferson (4.2 ppg) shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters.
 
11/23/2012 6:39:00 PM
Description: Warriors small forward Richard Jefferson won't be in action Friday against Denver. Jefferson is working his way back from a strained calf.
Insight: Jefferson hasn't played since Sunday. He was a worthwhile fantasy player earlier in his career but that was quite a few years ago. At this stage of his career, Jefferson (4.2 ppg) shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters.
 
11/19/2012 7:22:00 PM
Description: Golden State small forward Richard Jefferson is out for Monday's game versus Dallas with a strained right calf. SOURCE: Rusty Simmons, San Francisco Chronicle
Insight: Jefferson hasn't been a fantasy option this season playing just 15 minutes per game. Starter Harrison Barnes could see a bump in minutes, however.
 
11/19/2012 10:05:00 AM
Description: Golden State forward Richard Jefferson left Sunday's game against Oklahoma City with a strained right calf.
Insight: Jefferson is only getting about 15 minutes a game as a backup to rookie Harrison Barnes and averaging 4.2 ppg, 1.4 rpg and 1.2 apg which is certainly not fantasy-worthy statistics.
 
4/13/2012 7:51:00 PM
Description: Richard Jefferson is experiencing swelling in his right knee and will be unavailable for Saturday's tilt against the Clippers.
Insight: Dominic McGuire (3.3 ppg) and Brandon Rush (9 ppg) could both stand to see more playing time with Jefferson on the shelf.
 
3/16/2012 9:50:00 AM
Description: Golden State dealt small forward Stephen Jackson to San Antonio for Richard Jefferson and a first-round pick.
Insight: Warriors newly acquired forward Richard Jefferson doesn't bring much offense to the table anymore (9.2 ppg, 3.5 rpg with the Spurs), but could help Golden State at the defensive end of the court. Dorell Wright's playing time could be effected as the Warriors' starting small forward has watched his shooting percentages fall for the second consecutive year.
 
4/9/2011 10:57:00 PM
Description: Even though they're on different teams, Al Jefferson (23 points, eight boards, a steal, and a block) and Richard Jefferson (20 points, four boards, and four threes) both led their respective teams in scoring as the Spurs beat Utah.
Insight: Jefferson was well worth his value in the third round and will be a staple in Utah for years to come. As for the Spurs, Richard Jefferson figures to gain some value while Pop rests some of his studs on Tuesday or Wednesday.
 
2/4/2011 1:14:00 AM
Description: Richard Jefferson has been resurrecting his fantasy value lately as evident by burying four from downtown to finish with 18 points in the huge San Antonio win.
Insight: He has played in 31 or more minutes in his last five games and four of those were double-digit outings. He doesn't have too high of an upside which makes him only a decent add in deeper formats.
 
1/20/2011 1:33:00 AM
Description: The milk has gone bad for Richard Jefferson as evident by his ugly two-point and four-board night on Wednesday.
Insight: Jefferson owners should certainly cut him for guys like Ryan Anderson, Ramon Sessions, or Boobie Gibson without even thinking about it. There are probably about 150 better options in eight-cat right now, so plan accordingly.
 
1/11/2011 10:49:00 PM
Description: Richard Jefferson has picked it up lately and Tuesday was no different with 17 points, five rebounds, four assists, and three triples in the easy win over Minnesota.
Insight: Outside of the four-point stinker against Indy last week, he has regained fantasy value in most leagues. He was justifiably cut a short while ago and might be worth picking up for teams needing points and threes.
 
11/28/2010 11:00:00 PM
Description: Jefferson had 19 points in the Spurs' win over the Hornets.
Insight: He didn't do much else as he had only one rebound and one assist, but he did shoot an effective 7-for-11 from the field including hitting three threes. (RapidDraft.com)
