Jack (knee) agreed to a one-year minimum deal with the Hawks on Sunday, Shams Charania of the Vertical reports. Jack was waived by the Nets in late June after his season ended abruptly in January due to a torn ACL. He averaged 12.8 points, 7.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 32 minutes per game. The veteran point guard will compete for time with Dennis Schroder and Tim Hardaway, and it seems unlikely he'll get the playing time that he got with the Nets. Jack is expected to be ready to go by the beginning of the 2016-17 season.
Jack (knee) was waived by the Nets on Thursday, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN.com reports. By cutting the veteran point guard loose, the Nets will only have to pay $500,000 of the $6 million he was scheduled to make. The 32-year-old tore his right ACL in early January, ending his season after 32 games. Before the season-ending injury, he averaged 12.8 points, 7.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 32 minutes per game as the Nets' starting point guard. Jack could draw the attention of several teams looking to add a veteran presence off the bench but his questionable health status could deter teams from bringing him on until he is fully healed, which may not be until October.
Jack (knee) underwent reconstructive ACL surgery Wednesday morning and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports. As previously announced, Jack will miss the remainder of the season, and he'll conclude the year with averages of 12.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and a team-high 7.4 assists per game in 32 contests. Assuming all goes well with his recovery, Jack should be ready when the 2016-17 opens in October, though it's possible he could be limited in training camp and the preseason. With Jack on the shelf, the Nets will turn to the combination of Donald Sloan and Shane Larkin to handle the bulk of the point guard duties going forward.
Jack has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and is done for the season, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports. Jack's knee gave out on him during Saturday's game against the Celtics and despite originally being called just a sprain, it's now being reported as a torn ACL. Jack has been ruled out for the rest of the season and will instead start on his long road to recovery. Shane Larkin is expected to be the main beneficiary in minutes at point guard, while Donald Sloan could also see some extended run moving forward. We'll have to wait and see for sure what coach Lionel Hollins plans to do moving forward following the unfortunate news regarding Jack's injury.
Jack (knee) will have an MRI on Sunday, The Record's Andy Vasquez reports. He left Saturday's game with what the team is calling a right knee sprain, and yet it appeared that it could have been a bit more serious than that. Jack was seen walking around the locker room without crutches, albeit very slowly, after Saturday's game, and was in good spirits, so that is a good sign at least. Continue to monitor his situation for news of the MRI results.
