The Memphis Grizzlies say former No. 4 overall pick Josh Jackson will not play in G League game today due to violation of team rules.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) December 9, 2019
The former Kansas Jayhawk hasn’t played in the NBA since 2018-19 with the Suns. The Grizz brought him on as a reclamation project of sorts, and it appeared to be paying off. Now, this is another step back for Jackson.
Jackson had been tearing up the G League, averaging 22.9 points and 8.3 rebounds in 11 games this season. He was also in a leadership role for the team, molding some of the younger players. Hopefully this is just a blip and Jackson can move forward in his quest to get back to the NBA.
