Grizzlies’ Jaren Jackson Jr. out for season after suffering knee injury

Memphis Grizzlies big man Jaren Jackson Jr. will miss the rest of the season due to a torn meniscus.

The Grizzlies are 0-3 so far at Disney World. While they are still in the eighth spot in the Western Conference standings, the odds of them keeping that spot without Jackson playing moving forward is highly unlikely.

Jackson finishes the 2019-20 season with averages of 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 57 starts. He shot 46.9 percent from the field, 39.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free-throw line.

Memphis’ next game is on Wednesday against the Utah Jazz. They will likely be underdogs for every remaining seeding game since Jackson is a monster on both sides of the floor and an elite pick-and-roll partner for Ja Morant.
