Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Will return by end of April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) will make his return by the end of April, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

The Grizzlies have been kicking the can down the road with Jackson's status all season, but it finally appears like we're getting something definitive. In a best-case scenario, Jackson might be able to play 20 games for the Grizzlies before the end of the year. However, for fantasy purposes, the bulk of that could be after the fantasy playoffs. Make sure to check your league's schedule before making a move to potentially add Jackson.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Update coming later this month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Grizzlies plan to provide an update on Jackson's (knee) status later this month or in early April, Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian reports.

Jackson's absence will last a few more weeks at minimum, which isn't surprising given that the team revealed Wednesday that the big man has yet to take contact in practice. Fantasy managers will have to continue a wait-and-see approach with Jackson. At this point, however, it's important for fantasy managers to check whether Jackson's potential return date would even come before the fantasy playoffs.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Yet to take contact in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) has not been involved in live contact activity in practice over the past week, Peter Edmiston of The Athletic reports.

The Grizzlies have been as vague as possible when discussing Jackson's recovery, and his return timetable remains cloudy. Jackson himself said in January that his return "is not that far" and "will probably sneak up on you." That certainly hasn't been the case, so it's not clear whether he was told differently or suffered a setback. Until the team comes out with something definitive, we'll have to continue guessing.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

The Grizzlies previously expressed optimism the 21-year-old would be able to return after the All-Star break, but he won't be available for the first game of the second half. Jackson has yet to play this season while recovering from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in August. No setbacks have been reported for the young forward, so he could still end up making his season debut in the near future.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Likely back after All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Grizzlies are optimistic Jackson (knee) will be ready to make his season debut sometime after the All-Star break, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. "I think there's optimism, there's hope that we will see him...sometime after the second half of the season," Wojnarowski said in his televised appearance. "That midseason break of March 5 to March 10. Sometime after that."

Memphis has been tight-lipped about Jackson's potential return date, while the third-year big man continues to recover from August surgery to repair a torn left meniscus. While Wojnarowski's report provides some level of clarity about when Jackson might play again, the news still probably registers as a disappointment for fantasy managers who had already been stashing the 21-year-old for the first two months of the season, hoping his return was imminent. Wojnarowski noted that Jackson is back on the court and ramping up his activity, which at least suggests he's been able to steer clear of a major setback in the recovery process.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Without firm timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Grizzlies plan to "ramp up" Jackson's (knee) rehab program "over the next month or so" as he works back from a torn meniscus, Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian reports.

Considering Jackson implied a few weeks ago that he was close to returning, Herrington's report isn't the most encouraging sign of the 21-year-old's 2020-21 debut being imminent. The Grizzlies appear content to take a longer-term approach with their young star, even though he hasn't experienced any setbacks in his recovery from surgery. While the Grizzlies aren't putting a firm target date on Jackson's return to game action, Herrington believes the big man won't be cleared to play until after the midseason break following Memphis' final first-half game March 4.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) will remain out for Monday's game against the Spurs.

Earlier in January, Jackson teased that he was close to returning from a torn meniscus, but it's been more than two weeks and it's still extremely unclear when he'll make his season debut. The Grizzlies travel to Indiana on Tuesday, so Jackson will likely remain out for that contest, as well.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Ruled out for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) won't take the floor Saturday against the Spurs.

Jackson has yet to don the Grizz's uniform during the 2020-21 campaign and remains without a specific target date for his season debut. However, Jackson indicated earlier in the month that his return isn't too far off, so it's worth monitoring his status on a nightly basis.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Wednesday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) and the Grizzlies will not play Wednesday against the Bulls after the game was postponed.

Jackson is believed to be very close to making his season debut, but he'll have to wait a bit longer, as the Grizzlies will have a fourth and fifth consecutive contest postponed this week. Their next scheduled game arrives Saturday in San Antonio.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Next three games postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) and the Grizzlies' next three games against Portland (Friday) and Sacramento (Sunday and Monday) have been postponed, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

There was some hope that Jackson would make his season debut sometime this week, but with the next three games postponed, his next chance to play will arrive Wednesday against Chicago.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Trail Blazers.

It sounds like Jackson is on the verge of a return, but it won't come Wednesday. His next chance to play arrives Friday against the Blazers.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Still sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) was ruled out for Monday's game against the Suns.

Jackson recently said that his return "is not that far" away, but he won't return to the floor against Phoenix on Monday. His next chance to play will be Wednesday against Portland, while Brandon Clarke, Kyle Anderson and Xavier Tillman should continue to see increased run in his absence.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Timetable for return 'not that far'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) said that his return to game action "is not that far," Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports. "[My return] will probably sneak up on you," Jackson said.

The Grizzlies have been quiet regarding Jackson's progress, but based on his comments, his season debut could be imminent. Once Jackson does return, Brandon Clarke, Kyle Anderson and Xavier Tillman will be candidates to see decreased roles.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

The Grizzlies haven't provided any indication that Jackson is nearing a return to full-contact, full-court work in practice, so he's presumably closer to week-to-week in his recovery from meniscus surgery than day-to-day. He'll be one of seven players sidelined Wednesday for the banged-up Grizzlies.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Grizzlies exercise option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Memphis exercised Jackson's (knee) club option for the 2021-22 season Wednesday.

Jackson has been productive over his first two years in the NBA, so it's no surprise the Grizzlies want him under contract through at least the end of next season. The 21-year-old averaged 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.6 blocks in 28.5 minutes during the 2019-20 campaign, but he underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in August and will be sidelined for the start of the upcoming season.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Won't be ready to start season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grizzlies executive Zach Kleiman revealed Thursday that Jackson (knee) will not be ready to play when the regular season begins, Mark Giannotto of the Memphis News reports.

Jackson underwent surgery to repair a torn left meniscus back in late August, and while he's without a firm timetable, the implication is that the Grizzlies expect him to miss a decent chunk of time. Kleiman did not get into specifics, but he confirmed that the team does not expect Jackson to be ready "early in the season."

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) has undergone successful surgery to repair his torn left meniscus, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

It was announced Aug. 4 that Jackson suffered a torn meniscus and would be out for the remainder of the season. Without him, the Grizzlies were not able to hold onto a playoff spot and were eliminated during the play-in, losing to the Trail Blazers during the first game of a possible two. A firm timetable for Jackson's return has not been established, but it seems likely the big man will be ready in time for the 2020-21 season. Early estimates are that the campaign will begin sometime between January and March. In 2019-20, as a second-year player, he averaged 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.4 assists. Jackson also emerged as a legitimate three-point threat, hitting 2.5 per game at 39.4 percent.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Done for season with torn meniscus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

This is a crushing blow for the Grizzlies, who will now attempt to hang on to the final playoff seed in the West without one of their best young players. It's unclear when the injury occurred, but Jackson appeared to emerge healthy from Monday's 109-99 loss to the Pelicans, in which he posted 22 points and two blocks in 32 minutes of action. The Grizzlies have not announced a recovery timetable, but the hope is that Jackson will be fully healthy by the start of the 2020-21 campaign.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Scores team-high 22 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson posted 22 points (7-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6.8 FT), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

Jackson was coming off a 21-point performance against the Spurs, but he bested himself in this pivotal contest against New Orleans. The power forward has been the Grizzlies' biggest offensive threat since the restart, averaging 25.3 points through three games.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Goes for 21 in loss to Spurs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson finished with 21 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3PT, 3-3 FT, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Sunday's loss to the Spurs.

After going for 33 points in Friday's opener against Portland, Jackson came back down to earth Sunday, though he was still efficient in his 35 minutes of action. The second-year forward is a poor rebounder for his size, but he makes up for it with contributions in the defensive categories, and from beyond the arc.
