11/12/2014 9:50:00 AM
Description: Hornets center Al Jefferson scored 22 points against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
Insight: That's actually below his own standards as Jefferson is averaging 23.9 ppg in seven games this month. But what really disappointed Jefferson owners on Tuesday was his two rebounds. That's, by far, a season-low.
 
11/7/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Hornets center Al Jefferson finished a rebound shy of another double-double on Friday.
Insight: Jefferson played 41 minutes due to the game against the Hawks going into double overtime, but the center failed to get the 10th rebound. He still had 34 points with nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal.

Description: Hornets center Al Jefferson posted a double-double in the season opener against the Bucks.
Insight: He had 14 points and 10 rebounds, while chipping in four blocks and two steals. Jefferson should be a double-double machine all season long.
 
10/27/2014 5:27:00 PM
Description: Bobcats center Al Jefferson should be in line for another big season.
Insight: Jefferson averaged 21.8 ppg, 10.8 rpg and 2.1 apg last season and should have went in the first or second rounds of fantasy drafts, as he will be an anchor for teams in 2014-15.
 
7/28/2014 12:19:00 PM
Description: Bobcats center Al Jefferson (torn plantar fascia) will not compete for a Team USA spot, instead opting to rest the foot for next season.
Insight: Jefferson averaged 21.8 ppg, 10.8 rpg and 2.1 apg last season and that's top-tier fantasy value and we wouldn't want anything to slow his recovery. Team USA still has plenty of talent in the middle.
 
4/28/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Bobcats center Al Jefferson (torn plantar fascia) will miss Monday's game against the Heat, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. Bismack Biyombo will start in his place.
Insight: Jefferson gutted out the first three games of the series at far less than 100 percent and averaged 35 minutes, 18.7 points and 9.3 rebounds. Miami will go for the sweep Monday night.

Description: Charlotte center Al Jefferson (torn plantar fascia) has been downgraded to doubtful for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Monday against Miami.

Description: According to Charlotte coach Steve Clifford, center Al Jefferson (torn plantar fascia) will be a game-time call Monday in Game 4. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: Don't believe a word Clifford says. Big Al is playing on Monday. But how effective will he be? Well that's up for debate. Jefferson has certainly looked hobbled against the Heat (18.7 ppg on 49.1 percent shooting) but with the Bobcats' season on the line, we're sure he'll give it his best effort.

Description: Charlotte center Al Jefferson (foot) started Wednesday's game against the Heat but went to the locker room with two minutes remaining in the first quarter.
Insight: Jefferson is dealing with a plantar fascia injury and was a game-time decision. He had a pain-killing injection prior to the game so it's not a good sign that he already had to exit.
