Jelavic and the Hull City training staff decided surgery was the best option to repair a persistent knee injury. The striker is expected to be out at least six weeks as he recovers from the procedure.

Jelavic leads all Hull City players in goals and shots this season. The injury could make way for Abel Hernandez to return to the starting XI while Jelavic recovers from surgery.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jelavic led Hull City with four shot attempts Saturday but managed to only put one on target and was unable to score during the 0-0 draw at Leicester City.

Jelavic has seen his shot attempts take a dip since Dame N'Doye entered the Hull City lineup. He still remains a threat to score with his high number of chances each week but will face some tough match ups in the remainder of Hull City's season.

Jelavic returned to Hull City's Starting XI for Tuesday's match against Sunderland. He managed just one shot attempt before being subbed off in the 73rd minute of the 1-1 draw.

Before missing the previous Hull City match due to injury, Jelavic had scored in two consecutive matches. He has been left out of the Hull City Starting XI in each of the last five away league matches either because of injury or coach's decision. With Hull City's next league match on the road against Leicester City, use caution if you want intend to play Jelavic.

Jelavic (knee) may return Tuesday against Sunderland, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Jelavic was held out of Saturday's match against Stoke City after picking up a knock in training, but it is apparently not overly serious, giving the team confidence he could get back this week. He could be joined by Dame N'Doye, who was rested against Stoke after being away all week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jelavic picked up a knock in training and will not play Saturday against Stoke City.

Sone Aluko will get the start up front, with Gaston Ramirez also playing in an attacking spot. Given the team described the issue as minor, it's possible Jelavic could return Tuesday against Sunderland.

Jelavic scored an wonderful goal off a poorly cleared header in the first half of Hull City's 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Jelavic has scored in two consecutive league matches for Hull City and proves that he can still be considered one of Hull City's more consistent attacking options regardless of who plays up front with him.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jelavic scored a goal during Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Jelavic leads Hull City with seven goals on the season and will have a good match up in each of the next four matches. He has battled some injuries this season but has done well to attempt numerous shots when he's healthy enough to be included in the Tigers' Starting XI.
