Justin Jackson scored a season-high 20 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with three rebounds, three assists, and two steals across 28 minutes in Friday's 95-97 loss to the Nuggets.
Jackson's playing time has been sporadic all season, but he took full advantage of his 28 minutes on Friday, compiling his best game of the season. While Jackson isn't a reliable fantasy option, his minutes could be on the rise with so many Thunder injuries and continued good play.
Justin Jackson scored 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) to go along with four rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes in Monday's 112-119 loss against the Lakers.
Jackson's minutes have been limited most of the season but with the Thunder ravaged by injuries, he has seen extended court time as of late and he responded well on Monday, recording a season-high 14 points. Despite the extended court time, Jackson's lack of peripheral stats makes it hard to trust him in most fantasy formats.
Justin Jackson provided six points (2-7 FG, 0-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) seven rebounds and one steal across 19 minutes during Monday's 118-90 loss to the Heat.
Jackson pulled down a season-high seven rebounds during Monday's loss to the Heat after missing the previous two contests. He was unable to connect from downtown and shot a woeful 20% from the field. Jackson is averaging 7.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.5 steals across 24.0 minutes. Unless his role in the Thunder's offense suddenly grows, Jackson is not worth rostering in most league formats.
Justin Jackson registered eight points (3-6 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) two rebounds, three assists and four turnovers across 29 minutes during Tuesday's 118-107 loss to the Magic.
Jackson joined the Thunder's starting five and appeared in his first game of the season. Al Horford (rest) and George Hill (neck) were unavailable for Tuesday's game, expanding Jackson's role on Tuesday. The 25-year-old didn't produce much in his spot start and is mainly an option in deep-league formats. The Thunder's next scheduled game is Thursday, home against the Pelicans.
Forwards Justin Jackson and Trevor Ariza have been traded to the Thunder as part of a three-team trade that sent F James Johnson to the Mavericks and G Delon Wright to the Pistons.
The Thunder had a plethora of NBA Draft picks and continue to sort out their roster. Jackson will compete for playing time at SF with Andre Robertson, Luguentz Dort, Hamidou Diallo and newly acquired Trevor Ariza. The former No. 15th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft averaged 5.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 0.7 triples over 65 games with the Mavericks in 2019-20.
