  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Stages another block party

    Jackson finished with 12 points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, four blocks and one steal in 33 minutes in Friday's 122-121 loss to the Lakers.

    Despite getting off to a late start to his season while recovering from June surgery to address a right foot injury, Jackson is steadily climbing up the NBA leaderboard in blocks. With 97 on the season, Jackson currently ranks third behind Nic Claxton (115) and Brook Lopez (108), and Jackson's per-game average of 3.3 handily outpaces Claxton's mark (2.7) for the league lead. In addition to racking up the rejections with ease, Jackson is grabbing a career-high 6.8 boards per game, and his 50.9 percent mark from the field represents an increase of 9.4 percentage points from 2021-22.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Swats six shots Monday

    Jackson notched 18 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, six blocks and two steals across 26 minutes during Monday's 136-106 victory over Phoenix.

    Jackson is one of the best defensive big men in the league and showed it once again here. He's on a run of 14 straight games with two or more blocks, but he's also averaging 16.1 points and 7.3 rebounds per game in that span.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Double-doubles in win

    Jackson provided 21 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks and one assist over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 135-129 victory over the Spurs.

    Jackson was efficient from the field and active on the glass, and those two traits allowed him to record his second double-double in his last four outings. The big man has been playing well of late, averaging 18.8 points on 56 percent shooting while adding 7.8 rebounds, 3.6 blocks and 1.5 three-pointers per game across his last eight appearances.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Elite rim protection again Monday

    Jackson supplied 16 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists and five blocks in 30 minutes during Monday's 121-113 win over the Spurs.

    Jackson blocked another five shots in the win, his sixth game in a row with at least three blocks. After missing the start of the season due to a knee injury, Jackson has been a revelation since returning, putting up first-round value on the season. The Grizzlies are primed for a deep playoff run this season, and securing a high seed is going to be key to their success. Outside of some sporadic rest, Jackson should be locked in for the remainder of the season, rewarding those who took a chance on him in their draft.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Grabs fourth double-double

    Jackson registered 31 points (12-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 32 minutes during Thursday's 123-115 win over Orlando.

    Jackson had the hot hand all night, going 6-of-7 from the field in each half for a total of 31 points, including 5-of-5 in the fourth quarter. The Memphis power forward was the second-leading scorer in the game behind only Ja Morant and also recorded game highs with 10 rebounds and three blocks. It marked Jackson's fourth double-double of the season and his fourth consecutive game with at least three blocks.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Three more rejections Wednesday

    Jackson ended with 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 131-107 victory over the Hornets.

    The fifth-year forward continued his defensive dominance, recording multiple blocks for the eighth straight game and the 11th time in the last 13 contests. Over that latter stretch, Jackson has averaged a massive 3.3 rejections a game along with 13.8 points, 5.9 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.3 threes and 1.1 steals while shooting 50.4 percent from the floor.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Likely to play Sunday

    Jackson is expected to play Sunday against the Kings, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Jackson logged 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists, six blocks and three steals across 30 minutes during Saturday's 116-101 win over the Pelicans. He has been looking good since missing the opening 14 contests of the season while rehabbing from a foot injury. If he ends up playing, then it'd be the first time Jackson plays on a back-to-back this season.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Goes 2-for-12 from field Tuesday

    Jackson finished Tuesday's 125-108 loss to Phoenix with six points (2-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two steals over 26 minutes.

    Jackson came into the contest hitting 51.4 percent of his field-goal tries on the campaign, but that mark dropped to 49.2 percent after Tuesday's poor offensive showing. Of course, Jackson's value is about much more than offense, and his fantasy managers aren't likely to be entirely displeased given that the forward also pulled own eight rebounds, notched two steals and swatted three shots. He's now recorded multiple blocks in four straight games and is averaging an impressive 3.1 swats per contest on the campaign.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Drops double-double on Suns

    Jackson had 24 points (9-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 28 minutes during Friday's 125-100 win over the Suns.

    Jackson enjoyed one of his best offensive games of the season, tying for the team lead with 24 points and putting up his most shots in nine December contests. The talented forward added 10 boards to finish with his third double-double, and Jackson also swatted a pair of shots for his 11th multi-block performance this season. He missed Memphis' first 14 games of the campaign while recovering from last year's foot surgery. Since his return, he's put up impressive numbers, averaging 16.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.7 three-pointers, 3.1 blocks and 1.0 steals across 15 contests.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Blocks five shots Tuesday

    Jackson ended Tuesday's 105-91 loss to the Nuggets with eight points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, five blocks and three steals across 22 minutes.

    Jackson was limited to just 22 minutes as a result of foul trouble but still delivered managers a strong fantasy line. Since returning from a foot injury, his offensive production has sputtered a bit, although his defensive contributions have been a real game-changer. The Grizzlies are going to need him to do more in terms of scoring should they hope to stay atop the Western Conference. Look for Jackson to find some rhythm in the near future, starting with Friday's matchup against the Suns.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Hits eight free throws in loss

    Jackson closed with 16 points (3-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-10 FT), eight rebounds and one assist across 28 minutes during Saturday's 115-109 loss to the Thunder.

    Jackson only attempted two shots in the first half, knocking down one of them for three while also hitting both of his free-throw attempts. He went just 2-of-6 from the field in the second half but still added another 11 points thanks to 6-of-8 shooting from the foul line. Jackson grabbed eight boards in the contest for just the fourth time this season, though his 37.5 percent shooting from the field marked his second-worst shooting performance of the 2022-2023 campaign.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Swats away eight shots

    Jackson contributed 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight blocks, seven rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Monday's 128-103 win over the Hawks.

    Jackson scored in double digits for his ninth straight game, but the season-high eight blocks were the real takeaway from his stat line. He's now tied with Evan Mobley for most blocks in a contest this season, and he's racked up an eye-popping 17 rejections over his last three outings.
