Jackson registered 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and two steals and a block across 39 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Hawks. Jackson was thrust into the startling lineup because Patrick Beverley (knee), Paul George (COVID-19 protocols) and Kawhi Leonard (COVID-19 protocols) were all unavailable. While Jackson can't be counted on to shoot this efficiently most nights, the usage and playing-time bump he'll receive in the short term should be substantial enough to make him worthy of a pickup in 12-team leagues. All of Beverley, George and Leonard aren't considered locks to join the Clippers for any of the remaining five games of the team's road trip.
Jackson is starting Tuesday's game in Atlanta, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports. The 30-year-old will make his second start of the season with Patrick Beverley (knee), Paul George (COVID-19 protocols) and Kawhi Leonard (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable Tuesday. Jackson's playing time has fluctuated significantly through the first month of the season, but this should be a strong opportunity for him to earn minutes with George and Leonard expected to miss multiple games.
Jackson will get the start at point guard in Friday's game against the Kings, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. With Lou Williams (hip) and Patrick Beverley (personal) sidelined, Jackson is in line for an extended role in Sacramento. He has averaged just 5.6 points across 13.5 minutes in 10 games this season.
Jackson is seeing just 6.3 minutes per game in contests decided by fewer than 20 points. The Clippers have played three competitive games and have been a part of three blowouts, and Jackson is seeing 6.3 minutes per game in competitive games compared to 23.0 minutes per game in blowouts. Overall, he's posting solid averages of 10.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals, but given the nature of his production, it's not really actionable in fantasy.
Jackson signed a one-year contract with the Clippers on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. After being waived by the Pistons last season, Jackson was picked up by the Clippers, where he appeared in 17 regular-season games (six starts) and averaged 9.5 points, 3.2 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 21.3 minutes. The 30-year-old will be back with the team to help bolster the relatively thin point guard rotation.
