Jackson just can’t shake the injuries over the last two seasons and this is not the start that a player on the hot seat is looking for. He had a poor fantasy season last year and is only a late-round target even if he’s fully recovered by opening night. Even worse, Ish Smith (tonight’s starter) performed pretty well when leading the charge and has a chance to keep chipping away at Jackson’s job. It’s a situation to monitor if you’re in need of a low-end point guard.
