A reliable wing player, Sefolosha averaged 8.2 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 38.1 percent from 3-point range in 38 games this season. Sefolosha joined the Jazz on a two-year, $10.5 million free-agent deal in July.

Utah, 17-25, is currently 4.5 games out of the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Jazz star Rudy Gobert also has missed extended time this season due to knee injuries.

Sefolosha has played 12 NBA seasons with Chicago, Oklahoma City, Atlanta and now Utah.
