    The Pelicans announced on Tuesday evening that the team is bringing back rookie point guard Frank Jackson after a three-game stint with the Texas Legends.

    Jackson averaged 29.0 points on 51.6 percent shooting while averaging 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. He could see immediate minutes as the team might be be without E’Twaun Moore who is still recovering from a calf injury.

    Frank Jackson (sprained right ankle) will be available on Sunday.

    Jackson will give New Orleans some extra guard depth but he's firmly behind Tim Frazier and there are no guarantees he'll play. He should be on the wire in all leagues.

    Frank Jackson (ankle) is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Jackson has missed the last two games but this is a step forward for him, as he was doubtful before Friday's contest. He's not a lock to be in the rotation even when he's healthy, and especially with Tim Frazier playing well over the last week. Leave him on the wire.

    Frank Jackson (ankle) will not play on Friday.

    Jackson’s absence just means more opportunity for Tim Frazier to try to get another double-double. We’ll see.

    Frank Jackson (right ankle sprain) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Heat.

    Jackson sprained his ankle Wednesday in warmups. It is now looking likely for him to miss a second straight game. He's barely in the rotation right now so there's not much impact for fantasy leagues.

    Frank Jackson sprained his right ankle in warmups and will not play on Wednesday night.

    Jackson is a negligible part of the rotation as is, so this news won't impact many fantasy leagues. Tim Frazier and Ian Clark might get a little more breathing room if you're desperate to find an angle here.

    The Pelicans have listed Frank Jackson as probable to face the Knicks on Friday night.

    Jackson left Monday's game with a sprained right ankle but should be good to go. He was having a nice preseason run before then and is in the mix for a backup job in a thin backcourt.

    Pelicans guard Frank Jackson said Wednesday he expects to play Friday as he deals with an ankle injury.

    Jackson was drawing raves from coaches this Summer but, again, has dealt with injuries. If healthy, Jackson could have a legitimate role for the Pelicans, but that is no guarantee. Jackson should not be drafted in standard leagues, but there is upside.

    Frank Jackson will not return to Monday's preseason game after spraining his right ankle.

    Jackson is being held out for precautionary reasons. He finished with four points in six minutes and will hope to carve out a backup guard role.

    Frank Jackson dropped 16 points on 5-of-14 shooting and 4-of-8 shooting from the 3-point line on Sunday.

    Jackson missed all of last season, which would have been his rookie year, due to three foot surgeries. He has potential and will likely see some bench minutes, so there is a chance that he could shine and gain more minutes throughout the season. However, he will likely not hold any fantasy value this season unless his potential comes to fruition and he earns more minutes.

    Frank Jackson spent almost four weeks with Jrue Holiday and trainer Mike Guevara during the summer in order to be ready for training camp.

    It’s nice to see Jrue taking the young rookie under his wing but the former Blue Devil needs to prove that he can remain healthy. He missed the entire season last year and will enter the training camp not at full strength recovering from an ankle injury he sustained during the summer league. The Pelicans are not very deep in the backcourt and he could earn some minutes if his recovery progresses well but he’s far from being a fantasy consideration.

    Frank Jackson is expected to be limited during training camps.

    This comes at no surprise as Jackson has not played a professional game in over a year. Jackson looked good in Summer League before injuring his ankle. Jackson should be ready for the start of the season where he is expected to have a bench role.

    Pelicans guard Frank Jackson (ankle) is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks.

    Jackson has already been ruled out for the remainder of Summer League, but his expected timeline should have him back for training camp.

    Pelicans guard Frank Jackson will miss the rest of Summer League with a left ankle sprain.

    Jackson has battled injuries throughout his career and shown some low-end promise when healthy. If we had to guess he'll be ready for camp and he'll have a long slog toward fantasy value, regardless.

  • Cheick Diallo
    F, New Orleans Pelicans

    Pelicans GM Dell Demps said Tuesday that the team is excited about Frank Jackson and Cheick Diallo developing and making impacts next season.

    Jackson was a second round pick in 2017 and missed the entire season after breaking his foot that required multiple surgeries. He showed fantastic athleticism at the NBA combine last year and is a former five-star recruit for Duke which certainly points to his potential to grow as an NBA player. Diallo has had limited playing time in his two seasons after also being selected in the second round. He is likewise a former five-star recruit from Kansas and has already flashed some of the upside he brings. Depending on how the Pelicans' summer shakes out, it may take injuries for either player to be on the draft radar.
