Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Friday that he does not expect Jackson (thigh) to play again this season, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.
Given where the Grizzlies currently are in their season, it would have been a huge surprise to see Jackson play again after getting shut down back in February. But Bickerstaff's statement essentially confirms that the team is operating with the expectation of Jackson remaining out. Jackson had a promising rookie campaign when healthy, and he will likely be viewed as the centerpiece of the franchise heading into next season.
Jackson (thigh) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.
Since Jackson was shut down following the All-Star break with a deep bruise in his right thigh, there haven't been any reports suggesting that the rookie big man is nearing a return to the court for practice. With the regular-season finale just two weeks away, it's looking increasingly unlikely that Jackson will play again in 2018-19. His ongoing absence will continue to keep more minutes open at power forward for the likes of Bruno Caboclo and Ivan Rabb.
Jackson is expected to miss extended time with a deep right thigh bruise, 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.
Jackson recorded 27 points (12-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, and two steals in 34 minutes during Thursday's 117-95 loss to the Thunder.
Jackson was highly efficient as a scorer but struggled with ball control (five turnovers). With Marc Gasol being dealt to the Raptors, the rookie big man will receive ample opportunities over the final third of the campaign as long as he can avoid foul trouble.
Jackson managed 23 points (6-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 7-10 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 108-106 win over the Timberwolves.
Jackson was sensational, matching his career highs in made threes and assists while leading the undermanned Grizzlies to a pleasantly surprising victory. The absence of Marc Gasol (rest) allowed Jackson to operate as the second option offensively, and while there will still be bumps in the road for the rookie regardless of what happens at the trade deadline, this serves as evidence that fantasy owners should be hoping that Gasol gets dealt.
Jackson (quadriceps) submitted 16 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-8 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes Sunday in the Grizzlies' 96-84 win over the Knicks.
Jackson once again ran into foul trouble in his return from a one-game absence, but fortunately, it didn't result in too much of a downturn in his playing time. In spite of his somewhat inconsistent performances from game to game, Jackson remains a must-roster fantasy option and could see his value skyrocket in the event Marc Gasol is dealt prior to Thursday's trade deadline.
Jackson (quad) will play Sunday against New York, Omari Sankofa of The Athletic reports.
Jackson was held out of Friday's game with a minor quad issue, but the plan all along was for the rookie to get back on the floor Sunday, as he carried a probable tag into the day. Expect Jackson to start at his usual power forward spot, likely pushing JaMychal Green to the bench.
Jackson (quadriceps) is probable for Sunday's game against the Knicks.
Soreness in his right quad prevented Jackson from playing Friday, but it appears the rookie will be in action Sunday. In January, he averaged 14.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks across 27.4 minutes.
Jackson (quadriceps) isn't in the starting lineup and won't play Friday against Charlotte, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports.
Jackson appeared on the Grizzlies' injury report Thursday, and he's since been ruled out for Friday's matchup. JaMychal Green will draw the start in Jackson's absence.
Jackson is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets with right quad soreness.
Jackson apparently tweaked his calf during Wednesday's loss to the Timberwolves, leaving his status for Friday's contest up in the air. The rookie figures to go through shootaround and pregame warmups before a final decision is made regarding his availability. If he's unable to play, JaMychal Green and Bruno Caboclo are candidates to benefit from added run.
Jackson (illness) will play Wednesday against the Timberwolves, David Cobb of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Jackson was questionable heading into the matchup with Minnesota on Wednesday but is apparently cleared to participate. The rookie will keep his streak going of not missing a game yet this season, as he is currently the only Grizzly so far to have not missed a contest. Jackson will presumably start at the power-forward position Wednesday.
Jackson is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Timberwolves due to an illness.
There's a possibility Jackson will be able to play through the illness, but the Grizzlies could end up thin in the frontcourt Wednesday. If Jackson is ultimately ruled out, JaMychal Green (knee) -- also questionable -- could see extra time. If both big men are ruled out, Bruno Caboclo and Ivan Rabb may be handed extra minutes.
Jackson scored 20 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 31 minutes during Saturday's 106-103 win over the Pacers.
The Grizzlies took advantage of the absence of Victor Oladipo (knee) from the Pacers' lineup, with their teenage rookie in particular producing his third game of 20-plus points this month. Triple-J is still looking for more consistency, but he's now scored in double digits in six straight games, averaging 16.0 points, 5.0 boards, 2.3 blocks and 1.7 steals over that stretch.
Jackson produced 15 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one block in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 118-107 loss to the Hornets.
Jackson scored 15 points Wednesday but offered little outside of the points column. The two defensive stats were nice but his rebounding, in particular, continues to be somewhat underwhelming. He has recorded in excess of five rebounds just twice in his past nine games, a number that could rise if and when he starts getting some additional playing time.
Jackson accumulated 12 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, an assist and three blocks over 31 minutes Monday against Houston.
Consistency has been the name of the game for Jackson of late, scoring 12 or more points in each of his previous five contests while shooting 55.3 percent from the field over that stretch. The Michigan State product has also blocked an impressive six shots over his last three games, adding value to his final line. Jackson will aim to keep it rolling Wednesday in what figures to be a tough matchup with Milwaukee.
Jackson scored a team-high 26 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 101-94 loss to the Pistons.
He very nearly kept the Grizzlies in the game single-handedly, as only three other Memphis players even scored in double digits. The double-double was Jackson's second of the season, and while consistency isn't yet part of the rookie's arsenal, his overall contributions continue to rise -- Jackson's now averaging 15.9 points, 5.4 boards, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 three-pointers over his last seven games.
