Josh Jackson (quad contusion) will miss Tuesday's season finale against the Mavs.
Jackson had a marvelous rookie year as far as the real life NBA goes, but in fantasy was only relevant towards the end of the season. He finished outside the top-300 on a per game basis, but that is skewed by his minimal playing time the first half of the season. Over the last 36 games he was top-180. For however long the Suns actually compete next season the 21-year-old has earned a sizable role off the bench for the foreseeable future. His only obstacle is TJ Warren who just signed a four-year extension through 2022. For now unless he can outplay Warren for the starting SF gig, the former top-4 pick will be the sixth man off the bench at the guard and wing spots and should be guaranteed 20-25 minutes off the bench. He can even log some time at PF in certain matchups due to his defensive prowess.
