Jackson suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. This is a crushing blow for the Grizzlies, who will now attempt to hang on to the final playoff seed in the West without one of their best young players. It's unclear when the injury occurred, but Jackson appeared to emerge healthy from Monday's 109-99 loss to the Pelicans, in which he posted 22 points and two blocks in 32 minutes of action. The Grizzlies have not announced a recovery timetable, but the hope is that Jackson will be fully healthy by the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
Jackson posted 22 points (7-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6.8 FT), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's loss to the Pelicans. Jackson was coming off a 21-point performance against the Spurs, but he bested himself in this pivotal contest against New Orleans. The power forward has been the Grizzlies' biggest offensive threat since the restart, averaging 25.3 points through three games.
Jackson finished with 21 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3PT, 3-3 FT, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Sunday's loss to the Spurs. After going for 33 points in Friday's opener against Portland, Jackson came back down to earth Sunday, though he was still efficient in his 35 minutes of action. The second-year forward is a poor rebounder for his size, but he makes up for it with contributions in the defensive categories, and from beyond the arc.
Jackson produced 33 points (10-22 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 7-9 FT), three rebounds, one steal and one block in 43 minutes during Friday's 140-135 overtime loss to the Trail Blazers. Jackson was on fire from beyond the arc and also showed off impressive handles while attacking the basket. The 20-year-old big man is a prolific outside shooter with elite defensive potential. He did commit five fouls but that didn't stop him from logging heavy minutes. Apart from his tendency to get into foul trouble, Jackson's rebounding numbers leave plenty to be desired. Nevertheless, he remains a very compelling option for fantasy purposes, thanks in no small part to the team's fast-paced style of play.
Jackson finished with 10 points (3-10 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-4 FT) and six rebounds in Sunday's scrimmage against Houston. Starting at power forward, Jackson played 21 minutes and added a pair of steals and a pair of blocks on the defensive end. Jackson missed the Grizzlies' final nine games before the shutdown with a knee injury, but he's fully healthy as the team's first seeding game (Friday vs. POR) approaches.
