Jefferson To Return Monday vs. Atlanta

Al Jefferson will return to the Charlotte Bobcats starting lineup tonight against the Atlanta Hawks, the team announced. Jefferson was a full participant in shootaround Sunday after missing the past five games with a bone bruise in his left ankle.

Jefferson originally injured his ankle in a preseason game against the Miami Heat and sat out the rest of exhibition play. He returned to the lineup in the Bobcats season opener in Houston, but suffered a bone bruise during the game.

Jefferson’s minutes are expected to be monitored closely.
