The Spurs have demoted 29-year old small forward to the bench. In his last five games, Jefferson is averaging 25.4 minutes, 9.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. He has now played in 55 games (50 starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 31.0 minutes, 12.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. Jefferson has played like a guy who suddenly looks a lot older than 29 years old and that is not a good thing for the Spurs. They will need him to step up if they want to make it to the second round of the playoffs this season.
