Jack's (knee) 10-day contract with the Pelicans expired Monday, and he won't be re-signed to a second 10-day deal, Keith Smith of FanRag Sports reports. Jack was signed Feb. 24 to provide depth in the backcourt after the Pelicans traded away three key guards to the Kings in the DeMarcus Cousins deal, but he appeared in only two games before suffering a torn right meniscus. With the injury expected to sideline Jack for the rest of the regular season, the Pelicans had little incentive to keep the veteran around after his 10-day deal expired. The Pelicans will use the open roster spot to sign Jordan Crawford, who will help restore some depth at point guard.
Jack is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a torn meniscus, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports. Jack returned from a 14-month absence following a torn ACL on Feb. 25. He logged 25 minutes in that outing, but only managed eight minutes in his next game played versus the Pistons. The injury presumably occurred in that contest. The veteran guard could potentially miss the remainder of the season, as the team may not want to rush him back for just the last few weeks on the schedule.
Jack (knee) has been ruled active for Wednesday's game against the Pistons. Jack sat out the second night of a back-to-back during his Pelicans debut as he is just now returning after 14 months of ACL tear recovery, but he will be good to go Wednesday night. He is unlikely to play the 25 minutes he played in his debut, as E'Twaun Moore is back in the lineup and will take back some of those minutes. Unless absences occur again in the future, Jack's contributions will be limited.
Jack is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Pistons due to a right knee injury. Jack produced six points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and one steal across 25 minutes in his season debut against the Mavericks on Feb. 25. The game was his first in over 14 months after tearing his ACL. To no surprise, he subsequently sat out the next night of a back-to-back, and is now listed as questionable for Wednesday's game. The questionable status seems to be more of a formality, as there were no setbacks reported by the team. However, his officially status will not be announced until closer to game-time Wednesday.
Jack produced six points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and one steal across 25 minutes during a 96-83 loss to the Mavericks on Saturday. Jack received 25 minutes and produced in limited fashion after he had just signed a 10-day contract with the team Friday. E'Twaun Moore (personal) was sidelined, which opened up some more playing time for Jack. It is unlikely that Jack will get this many minutes when Moore returns, if he is even retained by the team.
