Description: The Hawks have signed guard Thabo Sefolosha to a three-year, $12 million contract.
Insight: Sefolosha has never averaged more than 8.5 ppg in a season and he's unlikely to do so with the Hawks. He's a defensive guard with more real-life value than fantasy value, though he wasn't very good in real life either this postseason and found himself benched.

Description: Thabo Sefolosha will probably leave Oklahoma City when he hits free agency this summer. SOURCE: Darnell Mayberry, The Oklahoman
Insight: That became clear when Sefolosha was benched during the playoffs. His departure should open up minutes for Jeremy Lamb (8.5 ppg in 2013-14) at the two next season.

Description: OKC shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha will return to the starting lineup Monday against the Clippers. SOURCE: Dan Woike, Orange County Register
Insight: Sefolosha was benched for Caron Butler in Games 6 and 7 against Memphis. Even though he's starting, we wouldn't expect much from Sefolosha (3.4 ppg in five postseason games) in Monday night's series opener.
 
Cold5/1/2014 9:13:00 PM
Description: Caron Butler got the start at shooting guard in place of Thabo Sefolosha Thursday night in Game 6.
Insight: Sefolosha has been useless this series, averaging 3.4 ppg on pitiful 33.3 percent shooting. With Oklahoma City's season on the line, head coach Scott Brooks made the right choice moving Sefolosha out of the starting lineup.

Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will be back Tuesday, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
Insight: Sefolosha missed the last 18 games and will play limited minutes Tuesday. He'll cut into Caron Butler's playing time.

Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha (calf) could be back Tuesday, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
Insight: Sefolosha missed the last 18 games and will be a game-time decision. His return will take minutes away from Caron Butler.
 
3/4/2014 7:59:00 PM
Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha (calf) said Tuesday that he'll be on crutches for a couple of weeks, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
Insight: Sefolosha is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a calf strain. Caron Butler made his Thunder debut off the bench Tuesday but could soon enter the starting lineup. Reggie Jackson also will play starter's minutes going forward as he'll pick up extra time at shooting guard. Perry Jones and Jeremy Lamb will get whatever minutes are left over from Sefolosha's absence.

Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha (calf) may miss 4-6 weeks with a strained calf, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
Insight: Sefolosha has averaged 26.9 minutes 6.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals through 54 games this season. Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb and Caron Butler will pick up his minutes.
 
3/1/2014 2:22:00 PM
Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha exited Friday's game with a left calf strain and already has been ruled out for Sunday's game.
Insight: Newly signed Caron Butler is an interesting fantasy target with Sefolosha missing time. Sefolosha has averaged 26.9 minutes 6.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals through 54 games this season. Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb also will see more playing time with Sefolosha out.
 
2/28/2014 9:05:00 PM
Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha exited Friday's game with a left calf strain and will not return, according to Royce Young of dailythunder.com.
Insight: All of a sudden, the newly signed Caron Butler is an interesting fantasy target, especially if Sefolosha has to miss time. Sefolosha has averaged 26.9 minutes 6.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals through 54 games this season. Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb also will see more playing time with Sefolosha out.
 
2/28/2014 8:49:00 PM
Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha exited Friday's game with an apparent foot injury.
Insight: Sefolosha has averaged 26.9 minutes 6.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals through 54 games this season, and the Thunder just acquired Caron Butler. Look for his fantasy value to fall even lower, especially with an injury.
 
12/15/2013 5:44:00 PM
Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha will return from a knee injury Sunday against Orlando, according to Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman.
Insight: Sefolosha missed the last three games with a right knee sprain, allowing Jeremy Lamb to take on a larger role. He's much more valuable to his actual team than your fantasy team.

Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha will be sidelined Tuesday against the Hawks. SOURCE: Eli J. Friedman, Yahoo Sports
Insight: He must have tweaked his knee during Sunday's win over Indiana. Sefolosha's fantasy impact is minimal at best (6.4 ppg, 4.2 rpg in 18 appearances).

Description: Oklahoma City G/F Thabo Sefolosha will start Monday against the Nuggets. SOURCE: Darnell, Mayberry, The Oklahoman
Insight: He missed Saturday's game because of the flu. The 29-year-old hasn't scored in double-digits since the season opener.
 
11/18/2013 11:30:00 AM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha (illness) missed Saturday's game against the Bucks and is questionable for Monday's game against Denver.
Insight: Sefolosha is averaging 7.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals this season and is much more important to the Thunder than fantasy owners. He shouldn't have to miss too much time.
 
11/16/2013 7:52:00 PM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will miss Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Insight: Sefolosha is averaging 7.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals this season and is much more important to the Thunder than fantasy owners. He shouldn't have to miss too much time. UPDATE: Jeremy Lamb was expected to get his first career start, but Scott Brooks went with Andre Roberson at shooting guard against the Bucks to keep his second unit intact.
 
2/20/2013 10:50:00 PM
Description: With Kevin Durant having an off night (16 points on 4-of-13 shooting), Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha stepped up by delivering a season-high 28 points on 11-of-16 shooting.
Insight: Sefolosha was 6-of-10 from downtown. After not reaching the 20-point threshold in his first 49 games of the season, Sefolosha (7.7 ppg) has now scored 20 or more in two of his last four games.
 
2/13/2013 12:08:00 PM
Description: Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha is questionable for Thursday's game against the LA Lakers due to a bruised left hand.
Insight: Sefolosha is a gritty player but much more valuable to his actual team than any fantasy team. He averages 6.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 1.4 apg, 1.3 spg.
 
2/10/2013 10:29:00 PM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha is putting up 19 ppg over his last two contests.
Insight: Sefolosha isn't a big scorer so you have to be thrilled with his recent production. Enjoy it while it lasts, he'll soon return to his 7.4 ppg when Kevin Martin gets back in the lineup.
 
1/14/2013 9:50:00 AM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha (neck) will play Monday against the Suns.
Insight: Sefolosha missed Sunday's game with a sore neck. Despite averaging just 7.5 ppg this season, the guard is ranked inside the top 75 overall in Yahoo! leagues due to his contributions in 3-point shooting (1.3 treys per game), steals (1.1), rebounds (4.0), blocks (0.6), turnovers (0.8) and foul shooting (.893).
