Jaren Jackson Jr. picked up five fouls in 13 minutes in Monday's loss to the Rockets, finishing with four points, two rebounds and a steal on 2-of-8 shooting.
A foul-plagued rookie has trouble against the Rockets? No way. Not great for JJJ, but this kind of total dud is becoming increasingly rare. His last foul-induced disappearance before tonight came back on December 7 and usually he manages to deliver in one way or another, even if he isn't playing quite as many minutes as we'd like to see (25.4 mpg). These games are frustrating but Jackson remains a must-start fantasy option. JaMychal Green took advantage of JJJ's troubles and had 17 points, six rebounds, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers. He's been a nice back-end play with quiet top-150 value on the year.
