With Isaiah Thomas missing the next two games, the Celtics add point guard depth by recalling Demetrius Jackson and assigned Jordan Mickey to the D-League.
Jackson has only played in five games for the Celtics this year at 3.4 minutes per game, while Mickey has appeared in 23 games at 5.9 minutes so neither player is on the fantasy radar. Both have been tearing up the D-League however so keep them in mind if either of them ever finds an opportunity for the Celtics or another team down the road perhaps. Jackson has averaged a well-rounded 15.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.2 treys. Mickey has averaged 18.8 points. 9.8 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.0 triples. He averaged a ridiculous 4.4 blocks in 23 D-League games last season.
