Jackson will come off the bench in Monday's preseason game against the Thunder.
Jackson is averaging 9.7 points, one assist and one rebound over three preseason contests, and he's in line for a bench role Monday evening. He'll continue to fight for a starting spot with only two games remaining in the preseason.
Jackson posted 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes during Friday's 118-11 loss to the Bucks.
Now in his third season in the pros, Jackson is fighting neck-and-neck with Tim Hardaway and a host of others for a role in the starting five. He joined the Mavs after failing to catch on in Sacramento, and one could characterize the North Carolina product's impact as a bust, especially when you consider he was a first-round pick in 2017. He looks to be relegated to backup duty once again.
Jackson will start Wednesday's preseason game against the Pistons, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Jackson is fighting for a starting spot, primarily with Tim Hardaway. Their respective preseason performances could determine who gets the nod come the regular season.
Jackson totaled 19 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a steal over 32 minutes in the Mavericks' loss to the Grizzlies on Friday.
Jackson had a solid scoring effort on Friday, adding respectable numbers across the stat sheet. Since entering the starting lineup, he's averaged 12.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 26.4 minutes.
Jackson ended with just nine points (4-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five assists, and three rebounds in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 110-108 loss to New Orleans.
Jackson regressed back what is expected Wednesday, finishing with just nine points on 4-of-11 shooting. Jackson typically provides points and only on those nights he is shooting the ball well from the field. The playing time appears as though it is going to stick for the remainder of the season but there is likely a more serviceable option on most waiver wires.
Jackson totaled 24 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds, and three assists in 30 minutes during Monday's 122-102 victory over the 76ers.
Jackson had another of his random strong shooting nights Monday, scoring a team-high 24 points on 7-of-11 shooting. While these nights tend to come every so often, he has in fact shot at least 50 percent in eight of his past nine games. He does literally nothing else and should be viewed as a points streamer only.
Jackson had 19 points (9-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, and one assist in 33 minutes during Thursday's 116-100 loss to Sacramento.
Jackson led the Mavericks with 19 points on 9-of-16 shooting, his second straight game with double-digit scoring. Tim Hardaway Jr (leg) is going to miss the rest of the season which could see Jackson remain in the starting lineup. Big nights such as this typically come on unsustainable shooting and he offers very little in the way of supporting numbers. He should be viewed as a points streamer only at this stage.
Jackson supplied 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Jackson's scoring tally led the second unit and was largely the result of an unusually robust allotment of playing time, which appeared to have been at least partly triggered by the fact Maxi Kleber sat with a wrist injury. Jackson hadn't logged more than 25 minutes in any game since joining the Mavericks in early February, and he made excellent use of the extra opportunity. Jackson has shot at least 50.0 percent in three straight contests, and given that Dirk Nowitzki should continue to see significantly capped minutes the rest of the way, the 2017 first-round pick of the Kings could well see a similar level of opportunity in some of Dallas' remaining games.
Jackson compiled 18 points (6-10 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and an assist over 25 minutes Wednesday against Washington.
Jackson led the bench in scoring and did the majority of his damage from beyond the arc, where he converted on 71.4 percent of his treys on the evening. The 23-year-old forward had been held to just nine points over his previous three contests, so Wednesday's outing was certainly a step in the right direction, although it's uncertain whether he can put up these types of numbers on a consistent basis.
Jackson managed three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt) in four minutes during Friday's 122-107 loss to the Bucks.
Jackson played sparingly in his Mavericks debut, though he originally wasn't expected to play before his status changed just prior to tipoff. The new acquisition will have to earn his minutes, but his ability to both space the floor as a shooter and defend coupled with the lack of wing depth could catapult him into contention for decent minutes over the final third of the season. Moreover, if Luka Doncic (hand) misses any time, Jackson will likely be among those to take on additional minutes during Sunday's matchup with the Trail Blazers.
Jackson (not injury related) will be available Friday against the Bucks, Mark Followill of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
Though it seemed unlikely Jackson would be available, things have worked out and he'll be in uniform Friday. Given the Mavs' lack of wing depth, he could play a significant role.
Jackson is not expected to be available for Friday's game against the Bucks, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Jackson was sent over to Dallas as part of the Harrison Barnes trade, and given that he still has to undergo another physical, chances are the swingman will not be cleared in time for Friday's game. Once cleared, Jackson will likely come off the bench initially, but given the Mavericks' lack of quality depth on the wing, Jackson could ultimately challenge for a starting spot.
Jackson was traded from the Kings to the Mavericks on Wednesday along with Zach Randolph in exchange for Harrison Barnes, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This move is primarily a salary dump for Dallas, as Barnes carries a player option worth more than $25 million while Randolph is on an expiring deal and Jackson is owed just $3.28 million next season. While Jackson's exact role with his new team remains unclear, he's a strong candidate to battle Dorian Finney-Smith for the open starting spot left behind by Barnes. Prior to being dealt to Dallas, the second-year player out of North Carolina was averaging just 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 20.8 minutes on the season.
Jackson posted 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and registered five rebounds along with a steal and a block across 29 minutes Monday against Brooklyn.
Jackson put together one of his most impressive outings of January, finishing in double figures for the fourth time this month (11 games). His playing time off the bench has been sporadic of late, averaging just over 20 minutes per contest over his previous four matchups despite logging 29 minutes Monday. It's likely that Jackson received more run in Brooklyn due to a lopsided game.
Jackson provided 12 points (3-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, and four assists in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 115-111 loss to the Suns.
Jackson was extremely efficient while seeing the most minutes on the team despite coming off the bench. Moreover, he matched his career high in assists while scoring in double figures for the third straight game, which is the longest such streak of his career. Starting small forward Iman Shumpert (finger) has missed three games in a row, creating more opportunities for Jackson to make an impact, and the sharp-shooting sophomore has done just that.
Jackson totaled 28 points (10-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, an assist and a steal across 34 minutes in Saturday's 127-123 loss to the Warriors.
Jackson's superb night was likely the biggest surprise on Saturday's slate. The Suns had all but given up on Jackson as a high-impact player, and aside from a few spot starts here and there, he's been riding the pine in his sophomore season. The Kings have a crowded depth chart with a lot of talent that has superceded Jackson and despite this career night, one shouldn't expect the needle to move much in terms of his overall output.
Jackson produced 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 37 minutes in the Kings' 132-113 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.
Jackson was thrust into the starting five with Iman Shumpert (hip) a late scratch Wednesday, and he responded with a solid all-around line. The 2017 first-round pick managed his second straight double-digit scoring effort on the strength of draining multiple threes in back-to-back contests for the second time in December. Jackson has enjoyed a solid allotment of playing time during the month (21.8 minutes per game), and his 47.6 percent shooting (including 47.1 percent from three-point range) has helped produce a quartet of double-digit point tallies. However, Jackson's usage remains on the low side overall, capping his cumulative fantasy value.
Jackson registered 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, and one block in 25 minutes during Saturday's 107-97 loss to the Pacers.
Jackson has reached double figures in scoring in two of the last three games, and in seven of 24 appearances thus far this season. Moreover, Jackson has earned at least 20 minutes in each of the first four games in December while draining eight-of-13 three-point attempts. Monday's matchup with the lowly Bulls could provide Jackson with another opportunity to fill it up offensively.
Jackson drew a start in place of Iman Shumpert (hip) in Wednesday's 97-92 win over the Grizzlies and posted seven points (2-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes.
Jackson couldn't get anything going with his shot, but he proved to be a force on the boards. The second-year wing was one of three double-digit rebounders for the Kings, and his total was easily his highest of the season. Jackson's struggles on offense were disappointing, but it also bears mentioning he'd shot a stellar 66.7 and 63.6 percent over his previous two games. The 23-year-old could be due for another start if Shumpert is unable to return for a Friday night battle against the Wizards.
Jackson is starting at small forward Wednesday against the Grizzlies, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
Jackson will enter the starting lineup for the first time all season in place of Iman Shumpert, who is unavailable with a hip injury. Through the first four games of the season, the 23-year-old is averaging 9.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 26.5 minutes per game.
