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.
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.
Jackson recorded 30 points (11-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and two blocks across 24 minutes during Friday's 80-74 win over the Knicks in the Las Vegas Summer League (game halted due to earthquake).
Jackson's brilliant performance was overshadowed by the early departure of Zion Williamson (knee) due to injury, but Jackson ended up as the best former Blue Devil on Friday. Jackson's injury struggles have plagued his NBA career but he managed to put his season-ending 2017 foot surgery behind him in March. when he had a solid nine-game run of double-digit scoring games in place of Jrue Holiday (abdomen). With the acquisition of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and J.J. Redick, it's difficult to see a path where Jackson will make much of an impact this season.
Jackson (concussion) will not play Tuesday against the Warriors.
No surprise here, as Jackson will miss a sixth straight game to conclude the season as he deals with the after-effects of a concussion. With Jrue Holiday shut down, expect Elfrid Payton to see plenty of minutes as New Orleans limps to the finish.
Jackson (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Sacramento.
Jackson will miss his fifth-straight with a concussion Sunday. Considering he doesn't appear to be making progress in his recovery and with the season decided, it's highly likely that Jackson won't take the court against this year.
Jackson (concussion) won't play Friday against the Suns.
Jackson's concussion will keep him out for a fourth straight contest. His next chance to play arrives Sunday against the Kings, which is the second-to-last game of the season.
Jackson (concussion) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Jackson is still in concussion protocol and will miss his third straight contest as a result. With the Pelicans only having four games left in the regular season, they don't really have a reason to rush the young point guard pack with a potentially serious injury, but Jackson will continue to be considered day-to-day.
Jackson (concussion) won't play in Sunday's game against the Lakers.
Jackson remains in concussion protocol and will be held out for a second-straight game. Look for Ian Clark, Dairis Bertans and Stanley Johnson to receive increases in minutes as long as Jackson remains out.
Jackson (concussion) is out Thursday against the Kings.
Jackson has started nine straight games for the Pelicans, averaging 17.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 34.0 minutes. However, his workload will have to be replaced for Thursday's game and possibly beyond. Beneficiaries could include Ian Clark, Dairis Bertans and Stanley Johnson.
Jackson was diagnosed with a concussion after exiting Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports.
Jackson will immediately enter the concussion protocol, spelling an end to a productive night during which he put up 20 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-9 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes. The young guard has hit double figures in scoring in 10 straight games while starting the last nine, but that streak could end if he fails to clear the protocol ahead of Thursday's game against the Kings. If both Jackson, E'Twaun Moore (quadriceps) and Jrue Holiday (abdomen) are all sidelined for that contest, the Pelicans would likely turn to a combination of Ian Clark, Dairis Bertans and Stanley Johnson to cover all the minutes at shooting guard.
Jackson took a hit to the head and went to the locker room during Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Jackson may be getting checked for a concussion. He should be considered questionable to return.
Jackson compiled 19 points (7-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 34 minutes during Sunday's 113-90 loss to the Rockets.
Jackson finished with a career high in assists while reaching double figures in scoring for the ninth straight game. Jrue Holiday (abdomen) and E'Twaun Moore (quadriceps) have both missed the last eight games, and it's unclear when (or if) they will return given that there are only seven regular season matchups remaining. Jackson and company will take on the Hawks this Tuesday, and the rookie point guard recently poured in a career-high 23 points versus Atlanta back on March 10.
Jackson recorded 19 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds, one steal, and one block in 40 minutes during Monday's 129-125 overtime win against the Mavericks.
Jackson has reached double figures in scoring in seven straight showings while earning at least 33 minutes in all but one of those. Furthermore, he matched his career high assist total in this one. The continued absence of Jrue Holiday (abdomen) has allowed Jackson to receive ample minutes lately, and at this point the Pelicans don't seem to be in any rush to bring Holiday back. Unless or until that changes, Jackson will likely remain a decent option for daily (and deep) leagues.
Jackson produced 23 points (10-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds, and two assists in 33 minutes during Sunday's 128-116 loss to the Hawks.
Jackson has now poured in 20-plus points in consecutive contests. With Jrue Holiday (abdomen) expected to miss at least another game or two, Jackson will likely be relied on heavily once again during Tuesday's bout versus the Bucks.
Jackson racked up 20 points (9-20 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT) and six rebounds in 37 minutes during Friday's 127-104 loss to the Raptors.
Jackson joined the starting five with Jrue Holiday (abdomen) out for at least the next week and reached double figures in scoring for the third time in the last four tilts (and fourth in the last six). Jackson isn't much of a distributor, as evidenced by his goose egg in the assist column. However, he's likely to remain aggressive and could be a decent option for Sunday's matchup with a Hawks opponent that likes to get up and down the court.
Jackson will draw a spot start Friday against the Raptors, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
With Jrue Holiday (abdomen) out of the mix Friday, Jackson will draw his first start since Feb. 9 against Memphis. He's averaging 9.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists over his previous seven games as a starter.
Jackson managed 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds, and one steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 114-104 loss to the Jazz.
Jackson has canned three treys in two of the last four games while sinking two in one of those others. Given that Jackson had hit more than one trey only five times this season prior to this recent stretch, it's safe to say he's becoming more confident in his shooting ability. Moreover, Jackson has reached double figures in scoring in three of the last five games, and he may be worthy of consideration in deeper leagues as the season winds down.
Jackson had 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 125-119 loss to the Lakers.
Jackson played 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss, coming away with 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting. The Pelicans chose to waive Tim Frazier late Wednesday, all but assuring Jackson of the primary backup minutes moving forward. He is not there as a standard league pickup just yet but could be worth a speculative add in deeper formats.
Jackson finished with two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and three assists in 10 minutes Thursday in the Pelicans' 131-122 win over the Thunder.
For the second straight game, Jackson came off the bench while coach Alvin Gentry shifted Jrue Holiday over from shooting guard to point guard. The move to the second unit has unsurprisingly come with a steady decline in playing time for the rookie, who has logged 22 minutes combined the past two games. Since his big 25-point explosion Feb. 2 in San Antonio, Jackson is shooting just 32.5 percent from the field. Jackson could be at risk of falling out of the rotation entirely if Elfrid Payton (ankle) is cleared to play in the Pelicans' first game out of the All-Star break Feb. 22 in Indiana.
Coach Alvin Gentry said Wednesday that Jackson is not entitled to minutes, Scott Kushner of the New Orleans Advocate reports.
Jackson made seven straight starts between Jan. 29 and Feb. 9 amid some injuries to the Pelicans' backcourt, but he was sent back to the bench for Tuesday night's game and saw only 12 minutes -- his lowest total since Jan. 16. Gentry noted that he's optimistic for Jackson's future, but it sounds as though he's currently a bit frustrated with the second-year guard. Still, Jackson should remain a part of the regular rotation, and there's always a chance he could see an expanded role down the stretch if the Pelicans opt to rest veterans.
