Jeffries was on a two-way contract during his 2019/20 rookie season, but the club elevated him to its 15-man roster and fully guaranteed his deal ahead of the 2020/21 season. He has yet to play in a regular season game during this sophomore campaign.
Back soreness was the initial culprit behind Jeffries’ lack of availability for Sacramento in all but one preseason game this year. While recuperating, Jeffries incurred a Grade 3 left ankle sprain in December after landing on Jabari Parker‘s foot during a scrimmage, which sidelined him until now.
Jeffries appeared in 13 games for Sacramento during his rookie season, averaging 10.8 minutes per contest.
Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee tweets that Jeffries has been listed as questionable to return to the court for the Kings in a Friday contest against the Magic.
