Jackson will come off the bench in Friday's game against the Nuggets, Scott Bordow of AZCentral Sports reports. With T.J. Warren (back) returning to the starting lineup Friday, Jackson will head back to the bench after starting in each of the last two games. Jackson's role as a reserve takes away the potential upside he had as a member of the starting five, but he did his first career double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds in his last game coming off the bench.
Jackson (hip) will play and start at small forward in Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. While Jackson was listed as questionable, he'll be called upon to start and likely play a heavy dose of minutes in the absence of T.J. Warren (back). In Sunday's loss to the Pacers, Jackson played 30 minutes and recorded 21 points, six rebounds and three assists in that time. Look for Jackson to play a similar number of minutes Tuesday due to the Suns being light on wing depth with Danuel House (illness) also out.
Jackson (hip) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports. Jackson sat out last Friday against the Rockets with a strained hip, but returned two days later to deliver a career-high 21 points to go with six rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes while starting at small forward in place of T.J. Warren (back). Though the injury limited Jackson in practice Monday, he looks like a decent bet to pick up another start, given that Warren, who is also listed as questionable, was held out of the practice session entirely. In addition, one of the Suns' other reserve options at small forward, Danuel House, has been ruled out with an illness, potentially putting Jackson in line for another sizable workload. With four consecutive double-digit scoring outings on his ledger and hefty minutes likely on tap Tuesday, Jackson could make for an attractive DFS option.
Jackson (hip) registered 21 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes in Sunday's 120-97 loss to the Pacers. The rookie returned from a one-game absence due to a hip ailment to generate a career-best scoring total. Jackson has upped his usage on the offensive end in recent games, as he's averaged 19.0 points on 17.5 shot attempts over his last two contests. The 20-year-old has posted double-digit point totals in four straight contests overall and is averaging a solid 15.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists across 27.0 minutes in four January games. With T.J. Warren currently sidelined due to an ailing back, Jackson could have another starting opportunity when the Suns face the Trail Blazers on Tuesday evening.
Jackson (hip) is available to play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Craig Grialou of ArizonaSports.com reports. Jackson missed Friday's game against the Rockets due to a right hip strain, but after practicing Saturday, the rookie will be all good to go for Sunday's matchup with Indiana. Danuel House will likely return to a very minimal role off the bench with Jackson's return to the lineup.
