Jackson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Pacers. With Devin Booker (back) returning to the starting five, Jackson will resume his usual role off the pine. As a reserve, the sophomore is averaging 9.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 20.3 minutes.
Jackson tallied 15 points (6-18 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Saturday's 102-93 victory over Phoenix. Jackson scored in double-digits for the sixth straight game Saturday, continuing to fill in admirably for the injured Devin Booker (back). Jackson's numbers across the six games have been impressive across the board, even shooting the ball well, aside from this most recent performance. His role upon Bookers return will likely reduce but he has certainly done enough to warrant additional playing time moving forward.
Jackson managed 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds, and three steals in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 115-111 win over the Kings. Jackson drew the start in place of Devin Booker (back) and filled up the stat sheet, scoring in double figures for the fourth straight game while handing out at least four assists for the third time in the last four games. Jackson stepped up when Booker left Sunday's loss to the Hornets, and remained aggressive in this one. With that being said, once Booker returns, Jackson's value could take a hit, as the sophomore operates best with the ball in his hands (which likely won't happen as much when Booker is back).
Jackson will enter the starting five Tuesday against the Kings. Back spasms are preventing Devin Booker from playing Tuesday, so Jackson will step in as a starter. In nine previous starts this season, Jackson has averaged 9.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.7 steals.
Jackson posted 22 points (9-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and four assists across 32 minutes in the Suns' 119-113 loss to the Hornets on Sunday. Jackson's scoring total led the second unit and was second only to T.J. Warren's on the Suns. It also served as a season-high figure for the second-year wing, who helped make up for the offensive void created by Devin Booker's early exit from the game due to back spasms. Jackson has been less consistent and involved than during his rookie campaign thus far this season, but he's opened the new calendar year with three straight double-digit scoring efforts. If Booker is forced to miss Tuesday's game versus the Kings, Jackson could certainly be in for an expanded role in that contest.
