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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
Jackson produced 33 points (10-22 FG, 6-15 3Pt, 7-9 FT), three rebounds, one steal and one block in 43 minutes during Friday's 140-135 overtime loss to the Trail Blazers.
Jackson was on fire from beyond the arc and also showed off impressive handles while attacking the basket. The 20-year-old big man is a prolific outside shooter with elite defensive potential. He did commit five fouls but that didn't stop him from logging heavy minutes. Apart from his tendency to get into foul trouble, Jackson's rebounding numbers leave plenty to be desired. Nevertheless, he remains a very compelling option for fantasy purposes, thanks in no small part to the team's fast-paced style of play.
Jackson finished with 10 points (3-10 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-4 FT) and six rebounds in Sunday's scrimmage against Houston.
Starting at power forward, Jackson played 21 minutes and added a pair of steals and a pair of blocks on the defensive end. Jackson missed the Grizzlies' final nine games before the shutdown with a knee injury, but he's fully healthy as the team's first seeding game (Friday vs. POR) approaches.
Jackson posted 13 points (4-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 90-83 scrimmage loss to the 76ers.
Jackson wasn't efficient from the field, but he was aggressive in getting to the free-throw line and provided a balanced box score, which helped make up for his poor shooting. In his career, Jackson has seven regular-season performances with at least three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.
Jackson said he feels "110 percent" in recovery from his knee injury suffered against the Lakers in February and confirmed he will be playing in the bubble, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
As expected, Jackson is healthy and ready to go when the Grizzlies resume their season in Orlando. He missed Memphis' final nine games before the suspension of the season. Jackson is in the midst of a quality sophomore campaign, seeing 28.0 minutes per game and averaging 16.9 points on 13.0 shots, 4.7 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.4 assists.
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.
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.
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.
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.
