Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Presumably healthy again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is expected to be available to play whenever the NBA's hiatus ends, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.

Jackson already appeared to have an outside shot of returning from a nine-game absence March 12 in Portland, but any hope of that happening was nixed when the NBA suspended its season earlier that day. With the benefit of three extra weeks of recovery time -- and most likely, at least another two months of time off to come -- Jackson shouldn't face any restrictions by the time the Grizzlies are cleared to resume training. Prior to getting hurt, the second-year big man was averaging 16.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.5 three-pointers, 1.6 blocks, 1.4 assists and 0.7 steals in 28 minutes per game over his 54 appearances.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Expected back 'within week'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Memphis announced Monday that it expects Jackson (knee) to return to game action "within the next week," Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian reports.

Jackson's sprained left knee will keep him sidelined for a ninth straight game Tuesday versus the Magic, but based on the timeline provided by the team, the second-year big man could be available as soon as Thursday in Portland. Whenever he gets the green light to play, Jackson should immediately settle back in as the starting power forward for Memphis, which has remained competitive during his absence to maintain its lead for the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Out at least two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was diagnosed with a left knee sprain Sunday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

The 20-year-old exited Friday's loss to the Lakers with left knee soreness, and an MRI revealed he sustained a sprain. Jackson is set to miss at least eight games before being reevaluated by the team. Brandon Clarke and Josh Jackson are likely candidates to see increased run during his absence.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Exits with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson left Friday's 117-105 loss to the Lakers early due to left knee soreness.

Jackson provided seven points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3PT, 5-8 FT), four rebounds, one assist and a steal across 16 minutes before exiting the contest. The severity of his knee soreness is not known at this time, so he should be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's matchup with the Clippers. Brandon Clarke and Kyle Anderson would presumably see increased workloads should the second-year big man miss any more time.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Puts up 16 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson totaled 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 0-0 FT), two rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes during Thursday's 129-125 loss to the Kings.

It was Jackson's best-scoring game over his last four after he failed to get to 10 points in two of his last three prior to the break. The 20-year-old has indeed seen more playing time since the Andre Iguodala trade, seeing at least 30 minutes in his third consecutive game. That trend should continue Friday night against the Lakers.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Double-doubles in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson contributed 14 points (6-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes during Sunday's 106-99 win over the Wizards.

It wasn't an outstanding night for Jackson by his standards, but he did enough to help his team get the win. Considering that 45 percent of the 20-year old's minutes come at power forward, there's a chance the departures of Jae Crowder and Solomon Hill could increase Jackson's workload and fantasy output. Fantasy owners will hope his 28.0 minutes per game will come up a bit now because Jackson is a per-minute beast, and someone will have to pick up the 48.2 vacated minutes per game left by Crowder and Hill. It will likely be a combination of players to take on the extra load, but, as one of the Grizzlies' franchise cornerstones, Jackson should see at least a slight bump.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Solid production in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson finished with 14 points (3-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 96-82 victory over the Pistons.

Jackson returned after missing the previous game due to a suspension. He managed to avoid foul trouble throughout, ending with a well-rounded performance. He has been a top-40 player over the past month and certainly looks as though he is only scratching the surface when it comes to his fantasy ceiling.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Suspended for one game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was handed a one-game suspension for his role in an altercation Wednesday night against the Knicks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Marko Guduric and Elfrid Payton were also handed a one-game ban by the NBA following the contest. He'll miss Friday's game against the Pelicans as a result, likely resulting in more playing time for Brandon Clarke and Solomon Hill.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Career-high seven swats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson tallied 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-8 3Pt), seven blocks, two rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 104-96 win over the Nuggets.

Jackson's scoring output was tied for his lowest mark in more than five weeks, but that was easy enough for fantasy managers to ignore thanks to the career-high block total. The second-year big man has recorded multiple blocks in five straight games and is averaging 1.6 per game for the season.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Blocks four shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had 13 points (5-15 FG, 3-8 3PT), five rebounds, four blocks and one assist in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 119-95 loss at Boston.

Jackson has registered mutiple blocks in four of his last five games, and he has emerged as a reliable rim protector, averaging 1.5 blocks per game this season. His duality as both an interior presence and a long-range threat -- mostly due to his 40.6 three-point shooting percentage -- allows him to be an integral piece of Memphis' offensive puzzle even when his shot isn't falling on a consistent basis.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Scores 19 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had 19 points (7-15 FG, 3-8 3PT, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 30 minutes during Monday's 126-116 loss against the Pelicans.

Jackson has scored 15 or more points in all but one of his January outings thus far, and he bounced back nicely from a 10-point outing last week -- despite ending with five fouls for the third time in his last five appearances. An excessive amount of fouls might be Jackson's lone issue so far in 2020 -- he is averaging 4.4 fouls per game while scoring 18.6 points per game on 51.2 percent shooting during the first month of 2020.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Battles foul trouble Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson ended with just 10 points, one rebound and one steal in 20 minutes during Friday's 113-109 victory over the Cavaliers.

Jackson struggled in just 20 minutes, racking up three early fouls on a disappointing night. Jackson has been a second-round player over the past month and for the most part, has been able to avoid foul issues. The Grizzlies went with Jonas Valanciunas and Brandon Clarke to close this one out but owners need not worry moving forward.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Mediocre in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson supplied 15 points (6-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three steals, two blocks, two rebounds and an assist during the Grizzlies' 121-110 victory against the Rockets on Tuesday night. He fouled out after 30 minutes of action.

Jackson struggled with his shot but racked up defensive stats to help mitigate the inefficiency. The second-year player has seen a bump in almost all major categories while evolving into one of the premier three-point shooters in the league (41.8 percent). He is averaging just under 21 points, along with six rebounds and two blocks per game in the month of January.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Scores 21 in 28 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson provided 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 122-102 win over the Warriors.

Jackson has scored at least 20 in eight of the last 12 games, this after doing so only 10 times through his first 27 appearances this season. While his rebounding numbers continue to leave plenty to be desired, he possesses elite defensive potential and continues to showcase solid improvement here in his sophomore campaign.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Leads team to victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson scored 24 points (8-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added three rebounds in 25 minutes during Friday's 134-121 win over the Spurs.

Jackson paced the team in scoring and must love the number 24, as it's the fifth time this season he's banked exactly that many. On the season, the 20-year-old is averaging 18.0 points and 4.9 boards across 38 games.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Impresses defensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson had 21 points (7-15 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 119-112 win over Minnesota.

Jackson has been one of Memphis' top performers over his last 10 outings -- he's averaging 19.6 points on 50.4 percent shooting from the field while adding 5.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over that span. The 2018 lottery pick is starting to demonstrate the sort of high-end fantasy potential he flashed as a rookie, and coach Taylor Jenkins' willingness to allow Jackson to play through foul trouble has allowed his production to skyrocket.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Produces good all-around game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson Jr. recorded 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt), eight rebounds, three assists, three blocked shots and a steal across 31 minutes in Sunday's 121-114 win over the Suns.

What started as a rebuilding year is now an exciting storyline in the Western Conference, and Jackson is a vital piece of the puzzle. Now in his second year, Jackson, Dillon Brooks and Ja Moeanr represent the nucleus of young talent on the team, and after two critical wins against the Clippers and the Suns, the league is taking notice.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Nearly perfect from field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson Jr. had 24 points (9-10 FG, 3-4 3PT, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and four blocks in 34 minutes during Saturday's 140-114 win at the Clippers.

Jackson Jr. missed just one field goal in the entire game, and he has been on a tear over his last eight games -- he is averaging 20.0 points per game while shooting 51.7 percent from the field over that span. He is one of Memphis' main scoring threat on a nightly basis, but this rise on the efficiency department should boost his value ahead of a tough road matchup at Phoenix on Sunday.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Grabs career-high 12 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson collected 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 12 rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes during Sunday's 117-104 win over the Hornets.

Jackson hauled in a career high in rebounding despite his modest minute total while posting his first double-double since Oct. 25. He continues to provide lackluster contributions in the board department more often than not, as that along with avoiding fouls have been his most glaring weaknesses. With that being said, the 20-year-old sophomore big man has flashed two-way star potential and boasts a bright future so long as he continues to improve in those areas.

December 29, 2019 09:08 AM
Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr.: Another 20-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson managed 20 points (6-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 119-110 loss to Denver.

Jackson scored a team-high 20 points as the Grizzlies fell short in a loss to the Nuggets. Despite ongoing foul issues, Jackson has been a top-30 player over the past month. He has scored at least 20 points in four of his last five games, playing at least 30 minutes in all five. His foul concerns have lessened over that period and that is the key to his fantasy value moving forward. He is only scratching the surface and could be a first-round player at some point in the next few years.
