  • Frank Jackson - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson (concussion) ended his promising rookie season just outside the top-300 and also on a relatively high note.

    Jackson made 16 starts in 61 games and averaged 19.2 mpg this season. As the Pelicans moved into tanking territory, Jackson’s minutes increased quite a bit. In March, he started nine of his 13 games and averaged 15.5 points in 30.9 minutes while also shooting 37.5 percent from deep. Depending on how the Pelicans’ rebuild takes shape, the 20-year-old Jackson could potentially have a sizable role next season.

    Frank Jackson (concussion) will remain sidelined on Tuesday.

    The Pelicans haven't updated Jackson's progress after saying that he entered the concussion protocol. Ian Clark and Dairis Bertans are the last two shooting guards standing.

    Frank Jackson (concussion) is listed as out for Sunday's contest with the Kings.

    Jackson was placed in the concussion protocol on March 26th and he is still not cleared to return. We may have seen the last of Jackson for this season.

    The Pelicans ruled Frank Jackson (concussion) as out for Friday's game agsint the Suns.

    Ian Clark and Dairis Bertans will continue to see additional minutes in Jackson's absence. Neither has done much to this point, but the Suns present a great matchup.

    Frank Jackson (concussion) is out for Wednesday's matchup with the Hornets.

    Jackson's 25.1 mpg the past week are likely to be dispersed amongst whoever gives it a go tomorrow. With the Pelicans limping to the finish line it's ideal to continue checking in on their injury reports up until gametime. Elfrid Payton is the best bet for value in the Pelicans' guard rotation.

    Frank Jackson (concussion) is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

    Jackson being out doesn't bring a significant boost to any other player, as Stanley Johnson is likely going to see the biggest uptick in minutes. Elfrid Payton will get all he can handle on offense and is a must-play while Johnson is still far to inconsistent to rely on in fantasy formats.

    The Pelicans are hoping that Frank Jackson (concussion) can return this season.

    Jackson left Tuesday's game and was immediately entered into the concussion protocol. His status for Sunday's game remains up in the air but he's only worth holding onto if you're starved for scoring. Ian Clark will start in the meantime but is a very weak option.

    Frank Jackson (concussion) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Jackson is in the NBA's concussion protocol, which means he won't be able to take the next steps in his return-to-progression progress until Thursday morning since he sustained the injury on Tuesday night. He's been a nice source of scoring lately, and fantasy owners can only hope that he's able to return on the weekend. With just one more game left this week after Thursday, however, Jackson is looking like a drop candidate. Ian Clark is the big beneficiary here but only holds appeal in deep leagues.

    Frank Jackson has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not return to Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

    Jackson finishes the night with 20 points, two threes and a steal on 5-of-10 from the floor and 8-of-9 from the line. This was the tenth consecutive game in which he scored 10 or more points. Ian Clark is the likely beneficiary here, though he's not a pickup in the same vein as Jackson was. Hopefully the second-year guard has a speedy recovery.

    Frank Jackson played well on Sunday as he had 19 points and a career-high six dimes on 7-of-16 shooting in 34 minutes of action in a loss to the Rockets.

    He made three 3-pointers and contributed three rebounds and one steal as well. He can be considered a deep-league scoring option for the next two weeks as fantasy playoffs are underway. Kenrich Williams only had two points on 1-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds and two steals.

    Frank Jackson scored 16 points (no 3s) in a loss to the Blazers on Friday and added three rebounds, an assist and a steal.

    Jackson has been averaging 15.1 points and 1.3 threes per game over his last seven but his lack of peripheral stats makes him nothing more than a deep-league stream or plug-and-play for points. He has three games for the next two weeks.

    Frank Jackson put up 14 points on 7-for-18 from the field in 34 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.

    Jackson missed all six of his 3-point attempts, and with just one rebound and three assists to round out the line it's very hollow. With increasing speculation that Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore could be done for the year, Jackson makes for a fine add for anyone in need of scoring and threes, but beware that he can give you a lot of empty calories if you need more than a pure specialist.

    With Jrue Holiday sidelined due to a lower abdominal strain, Frank Jackson has made the most of his minutes in the last two games for the Pelicans slowly gaining Alvin Gentry’s trust.

    In the last two contests with Jrue out, Jackson is averaging 21.5 points and 6.0 rebounds in 34.6 minutes per game, while upping his shooting percentage to 50 percent. And in the last seven games, he is averaging 14.3 points and 4.9 rebounds, shooting 54.5 percent overall and 44.8 from deep while returning borderline top-125 value. The Pelicans selected Jackson with the 31st overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and his debut was delayed because of a foot injury that caused him to miss his rookie season, but the young guard has seen the game slow down for him as he adjusts more and more to the speed of the game. Feel free to pick him up as he has proved to be a reliable source of points and triples while Holiday’s status remains up in the air for the rest of the season.

    Frank Jackson dropped 23 points on 10-of-18 from the field on Sunday in Atlanta, adding six rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes of action.

    Jackson looks locked into a starting role with Jrue Holiday out for another week or so and is a fine add if you need some scoring punch without much else. He's not for every team build but Jackson does have standard-league appeal.
