Jackson (quad) is expected to miss extended time with a right quad injury, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Jackson was held out of Friday night's game, and the Grizzlies will exercise caution going forward with the No. 4 pick, who will remain out for the "foreseeable future," per Wojnarowski. The Grizzlies are, of course, not overly interested in winning basketball games the rest of the way, so there's little reason to bring Jackson back before he's absolutely ready. Bruno Caboclo moved into the starting five in Jackson's place Friday, and both he and Ivan Rabb should be set for increased minutes so long as the rookie remains sidelined.
Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Jackson is dealing with a deep bruise on his right quad, Chris Herrington of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Jackson apparently suffered the injury during Thursday's practice, and a subsequent MRI confirmed the severity of the issue. While Bickerstaff noted that the big man could probably play through the injury, the Grizzlies -- who are well out of playoff contention -- are planning to exercise caution with the rookie moving forward. With Jackson sidelined indefinitely, Ivan Rabb, Jonas Valanciunas (personal) and Bruno Caboclo are all candidates to benefit from increased playing time.
Jackson (quad) will be sidelined for the foreseeable future, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Jackson is nursing a right quad injury, and with the Grizzlies out of playoff contention, they are expected to exercise caution with him going forward. The Grizzlies have yet to give the rookie a timeline for a return, but it is unlikely to occur in the immediate future. His absence figures to free up playing time for Ivan Rabb and the recently acquired Jonas Valanciunas. Expect an update on his status once Memphis provides more clarity on the situation.
Jackson (quadriceps) is out Friday against the Clippers, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Jackson was previously listed as questionable and, ultimately, he's in too much pain to take the court. With him out, Bruno Caboclo and Chandler Parsons figure to see extra run at power forward.
Jackson is questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers due to right quad soreness.
Jackson was a late addition to the injury report, and he'll likely test his quad during shootaround before his availability is determined. If he can't go, look for Bruno Caboclo to get the start in Jackson's place.
