Jackson (ankle) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
The 22-year-old was also probable for Monday's contest with the left ankle sprain, though he didn't see the court. Jackson is expected to be available again Wednesday, but there's no guarantee he'll receive playing time.
Jackson (ankle) is probable for Monday's game against the Heat.
Jackson was unable to play Saturday due to a left ankle sprain, but he appears to be trending toward a return for Monday's contest. Even if he's back on the court against Miami, Jackson is unlikely to play a significant role for the Pistons.
Jackson (ankle) was ruled out for Saturday's game against the Heat, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Jackson has had minimal playing time over the past three games since returning to the court, but he'll be unavailable for Saturday's matchup. His absence shouldn't have a significant impact on the Pistons' rotation.
Jackson (undisclosed) isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Celtics.
The 22-year-old was away from the team for undisclosed reasons early in the week, but he's apparently returned and ready to go. Jackson has yet to see the court this season and remains unavailable Sunday as a two-way player.
Jackson is listed as out Tuesday against the Golden State Warriors because he's not with the team.
Jackson hasn't seen the floor for Detroit this season and it's not exactly clear why he's away from the team. That said, even when he's back, he's not expected to have a significant role with the team.
Jackson signed a two-way contract with the Pistons on Friday, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.
Jackson was let go by the Thunder ahead of the season opener, but he'll find another roster spot with the Pistons. The 22-year-old averaged 7.2 points and 1.8 rebounds over 16.4 minutes per game while playing a bench role for the Pelicans during the last two seasons.
Jackson has been released from the Thunder, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This isn't totally a surprise, as the Thunder are deep at the point guard position with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander leading the way and George Hill and Theo Maledon coming off the bench. Jackson will likely find another home shortly, however, as the guard has been a contributing piece off the bench over the past two seasons for the Pelicans, averaging 8.1 and 6.3 points respectively.
Jackson registered 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds and an assist over 20 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 124-103 preseason loss against the Bulls.
Jackson came out of nowhere to pace the Thunder offensively in this game, though he's not expected to produce at this rate in the regular season. It remains to be seen just how much of a role he'll have moving forward, but all signs point towards him being a depth piece on the bench -- thus resulting in very few minutes. He averaged a solid 8.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.2 minutes as a rookie, but those numbers plummeted in his sophomore year and only posted 6.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game in 2019-20.
Jackson has signed a contract with the Thunder, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The 22-year-old athletic guard hasn't seen much of a role during his first two seasons in the league, though as a rookie, he averaged a solid 8.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.2 minutes. In joining OKC, he should have an opportunity to see minutes on a rebuilding squad -- a chance he wouldn't have gotten had he stayed in New Orleans. However, it's extremely unlikely that he'll be relevant in fantasy.
Jackson registered 31 points (12-24 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five assists, two rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Magic.
Jackson got the start with the Pelicans eliminated from contention, and he took full advantage of the opportunity, notching a season-high scoring total while tallying his second-best assist output of the campaign. The second-year guard finished the 2019-20 NBA season averaging 6.3 points in 13.5 minutes per game across 59 appearances.
Jackson will start at point guard for Thursday's matchup against the Magic, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
With the Pelicans mathematically eliminated from postseason contention, the team will roll with Jackson as the starter. He could be in line for major minutes Thursday, especially considering that Lonzo Ball could be rested for the entire game, per Will Guillory of The Athletic.
Jackson scored 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-0 FT) and added two assists and one rebound in 20 minutes during Friday's 118-107 win over the Wizards.
Jackson had his best scoring game since the NBA resumed play. The 22-year-old's playing time has fallen off considerably in his second season in the league and, as a result, so has his scoring. He's averaged just 13.0 minutes and 5.7 points per game this season.
Jackson produced 16 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound and one assist in 20 minutes during Monday's 124-103 scrimmage win over the Bucks.
Jackson earned the same number of minutes as rookie guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker. While Alexander-Walker is already a more well-rounded contributor, Jackson provides a consistent scoring punch and is less sporadic overall. As such, it's possible that Jackson will continue to earn the nod over Alexander-Walker this season when coach Alvin Gentry goes deep into his bench.
Jackson posted 12 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 overtime loss to the Mavericks.
With JJ Redick (hamstring) out and Josh Hart seeing just 13 minutes and struggling from the field, coach Alvin Gentry decided to dust off Jackson. He provided a nice boost off the bench in 21 minutes, scoring in double digits for the first time since Feb. 11 and the 11th time this season. That said, fantasy owners shouldn't count on Jackson seeing enough minutes to be fantasy relevant on a consistent basis.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
