Same song. Different verse. Another Jazzman goes down with a serious knee injury. This time it’s Thabo Sefolosha who according to reports is going to miss at least six months with a knee injury.

The Utah Jazz have until tomorrow to file for an injured player exception according to Bobby Marks to fill the roster spot.

Confounding an already difficult situation, the Utah Jazz have to make a decision whether to guarantee Thabo’s contract after this season in July. At that point, they may not know the outcome of Thabo’s recovery.

This situation is just awful. Our hearts go out to Thabo who has played spectacularly this season and has been a net positive not only in the Utah Jazz community but on the court as well. My hope is that he can return to Utah next season as he’s always putting in work when he’s in the lineup.
