Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Scores nine in nine minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson totaled nine points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and one block in nine minutes during Tuesday's 125-111 win over the Cavaliers.

Jackson saw the 10th-most minutes on the team even on a night when E'Twaun Moore (neck) didn't play. Jackson can fill it up in limited minutes on occasion, but he has been held scoreless in two of the last six outings following a three-game streak of double-digit scoring. With the club at close to full strength, Jackson sometimes becomes an afterthought in the rotation.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Scores 22 versus Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded 22 points (9-18 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two assists and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 140-105 loss to the Celtics.

Jackson reached double figures in scoring for the first time since Nov. 14. Since that mid-November matchup versus the Clippers, Jackson had gone scoreless 10 times in his last 19 appearances while seeming to have lost his confidence amid reduced minutes and role. It's unclear if J.J. Redick (hamstring) or Jrue Holiday (elbow) will be ready to return for Monday's tilt against the Pistons, but if not Jackson could be called on to play decent minutes again.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Scores four in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had four points (2-3 FG), one rebound and one assist in nine minutes during Saturday's 120-98 win over the Pacers.

Jackson actually earned more minutes in this one than he did in any of his last four appearances. After regularly earning between 15-20 minutes through the first month of games in 2019-20, Jackson has been more of a bench warmer over this last month. Given the team's depth at the guard position that seems unlikely to change barring a bunch of injuries.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Healthy scratch versus Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Sunday's 107-104 loss to the Thunder.

Jackson had combined to play 15 minutes across the last two tilts, and he has seen single-digit minutes in three of his last seven appearances. Prior to this recent stretch, Jackson had earned at least 13 minutes in each of the first 11 games to begin 2019-20.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Scoreless in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson finished with one rebound and one assist in seven minutes during Friday's 109-104 loss to the Thunder.

Jackson didn't hoist a single shot while playing the lowest minute total of the five Pelicans reserves who saw the floor in this one. If that wasn't discouraging enough, Lonzo Ball (illness) wasn't even available, which suggests Jackson's role will be quite limited once the team is closer to full strength.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Logs 19 minutes in Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had nine points (2-4 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and two rebounds in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 115-104 win over the Trail Blazers.

Jackson (neck) returned to the lineup following a one-game absence, but he was fairly quiet in this one. The 21-year-old sophomore can fill it up as a scorer on any given night, but there's only so much he can accomplish on a regular basis while playing less than 20 minutes per night.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Set to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Alvin Gentry said Jackson (neck) will play Tuesday against the Trail Blazers.

Jackson was considered a game-time decision after missing Sunday's game versus Golden State, but his absence will be limited to one game. Brandon Ingram (knee) will also play, while Lonzo Ball (hip) and Jahlil Okafor (ankle) remain sidelined. Jackson is averaging 10.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 17.4 minutes through 12 games this season.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (neck) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Jackson missed Sunday's matchup due to a neck injury, and he's in danger of missing another contest. If he's unable to go, look for Jrue Holiday, J.J. Redick, E'Twaun Moore and Nickeil Alexander-Walker to see more minutes.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (neck) will not play Sunday against the Warriors.

Jackson will be among several Pelicans sitting out Sunday after he suffered a neck injury early in Saturday's blowout loss to the Heat. Expect Jrue Holiday, J.J. Redick, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, and E'Twaun Moore to all play increased minutes in the absences of Jackson, Lonzo Ball, and Josh Hart, among others.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Gets questionable tag for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Warriors.

Jackson drew his first start of the season in Saturday's 109-94 loss to the Heat, but his night ended early when he bruised the left side of his neck. One of nine players who appears on the Pelicans' injured list for Sunday, Jackson would likely be in line for a sizable role either as a starter or off the bench if he's cleared to play.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Doesn't return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson didn't return to Saturday's 109-94 loss to the Heat after exiting in the first quarter with a bruise on the left side of his neck. He finished the night with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in five minutes.

Making his first start of the season in place of the injured J.J. Redick (toe), Jackson's night came to an early end when he took the brunt of a collision with the Heat's Meyers Leonard. Center Derrick Favors (back) also exited the contest early, leaving the banged-up Pelicans with just eight healthy players in the second half. New Orleans will finish up its back-to-back set Sunday against the Warriors, so Jackson won't have much time to heal up. If Jackson, Redick, Lonzo Ball (hip) and Josh Hart (knee) are all sidelined, rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker (career-high 27 points in 30 minutes versus Miami) would likely be in store for an elevated role once again.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Heat due to a left neck contusion, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

If Jackson is unable to return, it would be a significant hit to the Pelicans given the number of other injuries the team is dealing with.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson went to the locker room during Saturday's game against the Heat, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

It's not clear what kind of injury Jackson is dealing with. He should be considered questionable to return.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson will start Saturday against the Heat.

A myriad of injuries to his teammates will force Jackson into the starting five. He started 16 games last year, averaging 14.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 30.1 minutes.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Scores 23 in 23 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson contributed 23 points (9-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes during Thursday's 132-127 win over the Clippers.

Jackson was excellent, cashing in the clincher to make it a two-possession game in the closing stages of the fourth. Moreover, Jackson was extremely efficient as a scorer while committing zero turnovers. With Brandon Ingram (knee), Lonzo Ball (hip) and Josh Hart (knee) all sidelined, Jackson stepped up in a big way to help fuel a much-needed win. If any of those aforementioned players misses another tilt, he could have lots of offensive responsibility once again during Saturday's bout versus the Heat.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Could be in line for more minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson posted 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in Friday's 122-104 loss to the Raptors.

With Lonzo Ball (hip) out for at least the next contest, Jackson could find his way into the starting lineup. The 21-year-old has put together a good start to the season with 11.9 points per game while making 45.5 of his shots. Jackson has competed with Nickeil Alexander-Walker for minutes at guard off the bench, and has proven himself as a reliable option thus far in the young season.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Pops for 21 points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson finished with 21 points (8-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes during Thursday's 122-107 victory over the Nuggets.

Jackson caught fire during Thursday's victory, scoring a season-high 21 points on an impressive 8-of-10 shooting. Jackson has the ability to score in bunches but offers very little outside of points and threes. His role is sporadic at best and the lack of overall production rules him out of standard league consideration.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Scores 10 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson totaled 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3pt) and two assists in 14 minutes during Friday's loss to Dallas.

Jackson had a solid outing Friday, topping double-digits for the first time this season and dishing out two assists while not turning the ball over in 14 minutes of run. The second-year guard has averaged 14.5 minutes over his first two games of the season, slightly less than the 19.2 he averaged a year ago. Considering his age and solid rookie season, Jackson can be expected to hold a solid rotational role for the Pelicans, though the fact that the Pelicans have an abundance of talented young players may keep him in a slightly reduced role than his rookie year.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (quad) is out Saturday against the Heat, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

Jackson is still nursing a bruised quad. It's possible we've seen the last of him before the preseason, as the summer league playoffs are single elimination.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Nursing quad contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has been sidelined for the Pelicans' last three Las Vegas Summer League contests due to a quadriceps contusion, Nathan Brown of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

General manager David Griffin said that Jackson took a knee to his quad while driving through traffic June 5, when he poured in 30 points in 24 minutes in a win over the Knicks. The Pelicans will take on the Heat on Saturday in a quarterfinal matchup, but the team hasn't revealed Jackson's status for that contest. In any case, the injury isn't anything that should impact his availability for training camp.
