Jaren Jackson Jr. News
Memphis Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. turned in a huge game on both sides of the ball as the team beat the Orlando Magic 123-115 on Thursday night. The 23-year-old posted 31 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and three blocks while only turning the ball over twice. The most impressive part was the fact that he only missed two of his 14 shots and went 2-for-3 from deep. This was his first 30-point game of the season and his fourth double-double.
Memphis Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. (rest) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. The 23-year-old sat out on Saturday, which isn't surprising as the team wants to try and keep him healthy. Jackson will return for the second leg of the back-to-back set. The Grizzlies are banged up right now, so Jackson could be in for a big game. Fantasy managers should check their lineups and make sure he's in there for Sunday's slate.
Memphis Grizzlies forward/center Jaren Jackson Jr. had a historic night Monday, tying the franchise record for most blocks in a game by swatting away eight of Atlanta's shots. The Gasol brothers and Stromile Swift previously shared the record, but they have company now. Jackson Jr. also had a good offensive performance with 15 points on 6-for-11 shooting, and his line included seven rebounds and two assists as well. Memphis needed his services for only 24 minutes, as the game turned into a blowout. Jackson Jr. is a huge contributor defensively and has now racked up a total of 17 blocks across the last three games. He has averaged 3.6 swats a night for the season, which would comfortably put him on the top of the pile on the league's leaderboard if he had played enough games to qualify. The 23-year-old missed the start of the season because of a fractured foot and Monday's outing was only his 11th appearance of the campaign.
Memphis Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. (rest) won't suit up for Monday's game against the Miami Heat. The 23-year-old continues to work up his conditioning following offseason foot surgery. This is the second game of a back-to-back set, so it makes sense that the Grizzlies would have Jackson sit out. Steven Adams will return after sitting out on Sunday, while Brandon Clarke should remain in the starting five. Fantasy managers should check to see if Clarke is available because he'll be a strong streaming option for Monday.
