The Suns will start Josh Jackson at shooting guard in place of Devin Booker (strained adductor) on Thursday.
Jackson’s versatility is shining through, as a guy who was expected to play the three and four is now drawing starts at shooting guard. His percentages need a lot of work and he’s not a polished offensive player yet, but he should be able to corral rebounds and pick up defensive stats. Jackson isn’t a standard league guy right now but is at least worth watching to see if he can run with the job while Booker is out. Troy Daniels will also get more minutes and is a certified 3-point specialist, so feel free to give him a look if that sounds like something you need.
