Jarrett Jack told ESPN that he is “probably a month out from participating full in everything” as he recovers from ACL surgery in January.
“I’m already on the court and going through drills, pretty much doing everything except for going against other people at 100 percent,” said Jack. There was a report a few weeks ago saying he might not be ready for the year, and this sounds like a player being optimistic while perhaps team sources are trying to set expectations accordingly. If he can prove he is healthy then he will keep Dennis Schroder from being maxed out in ways that Coach Bud probably doesn’t want to see happen. To be clear, Jack has no real fantasy value.
