Grizzlies’ Jaren Jackson Tears Meniscus, Out for Remainder the Season

The Memphis Grizzlies have been struggling mightily in the bubble, losing each of there first three games since the regular season’s restart.

Today, they were hit with another setback when it was announced that their young power forward Jaren Jackson tore a meniscus in his left knee, ruling him out for the remainder of the season. According to the Grizzlies, Jackson “experienced an unstable landing after making contact with an opposing player with contesting a shot” during Monday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The second year forward was in the midst of a career season, averaging 17.4 points per game while extending his range and taking a step forward defensively. The Grizzlies are hoping Jackson will be ready to go by the start of next season.

The Grizzlies remain in the eight seed in the Western Conference, but with yet another loss under their belt, the competition continues to creep closer. The Portland Trailblazers are currently two games within the eight seed with one game in hand, while three other teams continue to etch closer as well.

The Grizz will take on the Utah Jazz next on Wednesday afternoon.
