Top Jaren Jackson Jr. News

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Tallies six blocks in win

    Jackson ended with 20 points (8-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist, six blocks and one steal across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 105-91 victory over the Jazz.

    Jackson blocked a season-high six shots Wednesday, while he also scored at least 20 points for just the second time in the past five games. It's been a rough start to the season for Jackson, who currently sits just inside the top 90 in standard leagues. He has blocked nine shots in the past two games, and managers will be hoping this is the start of him turning things around.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Active at both ends Sunday

    Jackson closed with 18 points (4-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-10 FT), four rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 119-97 loss to Minnesota.

    Jackson struggled from the field, but his efficiency from the charity stripe salvaged his scoring figures. He also contributed steadily in other categories to aid his fantasy line. Jackson has struggled to handle a more significant role on offense this season with Ja Morant (suspension) unavailable, and while Jackson's scoring numbers are up from 18.6 points to 19.4 this season, his percentages have crashed. He's shooting a career-worst 41.1 percent from the field.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Comes close to double-double

    Jackson totaled 13 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Friday's 110-89 loss to Phoenix.

    Jackson has struggled this season, and while his scoring is up, his overall numbers have taken a hit compared to the 2022-23 campaign, particularly on the defensive end. Jackson has scored in double digits in each of his last four contests, but he hasn't posted a double-double nor he has recorded more than one block or one steal in any of those outings.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Mixed results in loss

    Jackson finished Wednesday's 111-91 loss to the Rockets with 23 points (7-21 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 9-12 FT), seven rebounds, one block and one steal across 37 minutes.

    Jackson didn't hit a three and struggled from the field but still scored at least 20 points for the second time over his past six appearances. He also recorded a tally in each defensive statistic for a third straight game, but the reigning Defensive Player of the Year hasn't been racking up blocks or steals at a prolific rate this season. Jackson averaged 3.0 blocks and 1.0 steals last season, but he's averaging just 1.6 blocks and 0.6 steals per game this year.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Goes for 27 points Saturday

    Jackson finished with 27 points (7-20 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 11-12 FT), five rebounds, one block and one steal over 27 minutes during Saturday's 120-108 victory over the Spurs.

    Jackson struggled from the field, but he still posted a solid stat line across the board. The numbers in categories such as blocks and rebounds were not on the same levels as in previous games, but he struggled on the glass while dealing with a physical frontcourt of Zach Collins and Victor Wembanyama. Jackson is expected to hold a prominent role for the shorthanded Grizzlies moving forward.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Struggles from field

    Jackson totaled eight points (3-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 134-107 loss to the Lakers.

    This was arguably Jackson's worst game of the season, but he's been struggling for a few games now. Over the last three games, Jackson is averaging 11.3 points on 29.5 percent shooting from the field.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Quiet in win

    Jackson posted 12 points (3-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 29 minutes during Sunday's 105-101 victory over the Clippers.

    The Grizzlies picked up their second win of the season to improve to 2-8 despite a dud from Jackson. He's been held in check for two straight games, but overall he's off to a strong start this campaign. In 10 games, Jackson is averaging 20.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.6 three-pointers.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Goes for 28 points against Miami

    Jackson racked up 28 points (9-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 8-10 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 108-102 loss to the Heat.

    Jackson reached the 20-point mark for the fifth time in eight games this season, and he's benefiting from a more significant responsibility on offense with Ja Morant suspended. The big man has surpassed the 25-point mark in his last three outings, and while his defensive numbers have been up to par with previous seasons, he remains a reliable two-way threat on a struggling Grizzlies team.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Productive on scoreboard

    Jackson racked up 27 points (11-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Jackson posted his first double-double of the season Friday against Portland, and although he fell just short of that mark Sunday, he was still the team's second-highest scorer in the win. He's topped 25 points in three of his last four appearances and has averaged 26.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 33.8 minutes per game during that time.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Explodes with double-double

    Jackson closed Friday's 115-113 overtime loss to the Trail Blazers with 30 points (11-17 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal over 38 minutes.

    He hit the 30-point mark for the second time this season, but the Grizzlies were once again unable to get their first win. Jackson is carrying a heavy load alongside Desmond Bane while they await the return of Ja Morant (suspension), and Jackson's performances have been a bit up and down to begin the campaign. Aside from the two 30-point showings, Jackson has recorded double-digit rebounds only once. He's had success in accumulating blocked shots, swatting away 15 shots over six games.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Puts up 30 points in loss

    Jackson supplied 30 points (10-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 34 minutes during Monday's 125-110 loss to the Mavericks.

    Jackson enjoyed his best offensive game of the campaign, posting a season-best point total to tie for the team lead in scoring. The big man's three triples were also a campaign high, and he's now hit multiple three-pointers in each of his past three contests. Jackson has yet to post a double-digit rebound effort this season, but he's complementing his 18.8 points, 7.0 boards and 1.8 triples per contest with an elite 2.8 blocks per game, making him a valuable asset to roster in fantasy.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Top scorer for Memphis in loss

    Jackson finished Friday's 108-104 loss to the Nuggets with 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and three blocks over 28 minutes.

    He led the Grizzlies in scoring while also making his usual impressive impact on the defensive end. With Ja Morant (suspension) unavailable to begin the season and injuries hitting the frontcourt hard, Jackson should have a bigger role than ever at both ends of the court, and the 24-year-old could end up topping the career-best numbers he posted in 2022-23.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Five blocks in season opener

    Jackson had eight points (2-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, five blocks and three assists over 36 minutes in Wednesday's 111-104 loss to the Pelicans.

    The reigning Defensive Player of the Year got off to a hot start in his first game of the 2023-24 season and had three blocks in the first half alone. That was about the only positive he had on the night, however, as he struggled to get it going from the field while also turning the ball over three times and registering five personal fouls. Jackson has never been a strong rebounder despite his 6-foot-11 frame, but he'll need to contribute more on the glass with starting center Steven Adams (knee) ruled out for the year.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Back in starting lineup

    Jackson (rest) will start Sunday's matchup against the Heat.

    Jackson took the night off Thursday, but he's back in the starting lineup Sunday. However, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year will likely be limited to around 25 minutes as he continues to ramp up for the regular season.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Taking night off

    Jackson will be rested for Thursday's preseason game against Atlanta, Damichael Cole of Memphis News reports.

    Jackson has already played in two preseason games, so he's due for some rest. In those contests, Jackson averaged 17.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 4.0 blocks.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Strong play at both ends

    Jackson posted 17 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 24 minutes in Tuesday's 108-102 preseason win over the Bucks.

    Jackson is one of the best interior presences in the league, and even though preseason stats should be taken with a grain of salt, he keeps showing he's an elite rim protector and capable scorer. With Ja Morant (suspension) out for the first 25 games of the season, Jackson should see an uptick in offensive touches, which might translate into a higher scoring average. He posted a career-best 18.6 points per game in 2022-23.
