Jerebko on ready alert
By Gary Washburn
It’s been an interesting postseason for Jonas Jerebko, who played extensively in the final four games of the Chicago series but combined for just 18 minutes in the seven-game Washington series and then did not play in Game 1 vs. Cleveland. Stevens said that may change, with Jerebko’s floor-stretching abilities being useful against the Cleveland defense.
“He could [have a role] in this series, for sure,” Stevens said. “You start looking at, you have to be quick, you have to be versatile. The shooting helps.
“He’s obviously been a huge part of our teams the last few years, and in the Washington series, the opportunity wasn’t there as much. But I told him that there’s a chance he’ll be a big part of this.”
