Jarrett Jack is nearing a return and will hold an open audition for teams to see him play.
He suffered his ACL tear back on Jan. 3, 2016 with the Nets and was eventually waived by the Hawks. Jack is still 33 years old and it's not going to be easy for him to rebound off an knee injury. He's been a good locker room guy over his career, which is likely where most of his value lies. Leave him on the wire. Jan 4 - 6:58 PM

The Hawks have waived Jarrett Jack.

Jack signed a guaranteed deal with the Hawks for the veteran's minimum as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so his salary will go against the Hawks cap this season. He's still rehabbing from knee surgery, and won't be ready for opening night, but Jack should be able to latch on with another team for the minimum. With Jack gone, it'll be Malcolm Delaney serving as Dennis Schroder's primary backup, and Will Bynum now has a decent shot of making the team.

Jarrett Jack (right knee surgery) was able to get some shots up during Wednesday's practice.

This is the first report we have of Jack going through any sort of basketball activity since the knee surgery, although he's still not able to take contact and remains doubtful for opening night. Jack will more than likely be brought along slowly this season, so there's no reason to burn a draft pick on him in most formats.

Head coach Mike Budenholzer confirmed on Tuesday that Jarrett Jack (right knee surgery) will not be ready for Atlanta's regular-season opener against the Wizards.

Jack hasn't even been able to practice with the team yet, so it's not surprising that his rehab will extend into the regular season. Malcolm Delaney will be serving as Dennis Schroder's primary backup to begin the year, but neither Delaney nor Jack will have any tangible value in standard leagues this season.

Jarrett Jack (right knee surgery) is still not practicing with the Hawks.

Although the point guard said that his rehab is "progressing," we're considering him doubtful for opening night given he hasn't participated in a single practice to date and stated that the team isn't rushing his return. Assuming Jack misses time in the regular season, rookie Malcolm Delaney—who has turned heads since arriving from Europe—will serve as Dennis Schroder's backup. For what it's worth, Jack is hopeful to begin some shooting exercises and non-contact practice work next week.

Jarret Jack (right knee surgery) won't play against the Pistons on Thursday.

Jack is still recovering from knee surgery and it looks like his absence may extend into the season. He won't have much fantasy value playing behind Dennis Schroder anyway and can be left undrafted in standard fantasy leagues.

Jarrett Jack (right knee surgery) will not play on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

He's still not 100 percent and at this point it sounds like he's in danger of missing some time during the regular season. He suffered a full tear of the ACL and meniscus in his right knee last season, so it's understandable why the Hawks are being cautious.
Mon, Oct 10, 2016 12:06:00 PM

Jarrett Jack (right knee surgery) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason game against the Grizzlies, as well as Saturday's preseason game vs. the Spurs.

Jack's 2015-16 campaign was cut short after he suffered a full tear of the ACL and meniscus in his right knee, so there are no guarantees that he'll be cleared in time for the regular-season opener. Once he is able to get back on the court, he'll likely be eased into things operating as Dennis Schroder's backup, so there's not much incentive to draft Jack in most settings.

Jarrett Jack has been limited at training camp and his workload has been reduced the past couple days.

He's been doing mostly non-contact drills in camp and the Hawks are staying true to their word that Jack will be brought along very slowly. If he's not ready to go for opening night, Malcolm Delaney should win the backup job behind Dennis Schroder.

Jarrett Jack (knee surgery) will not be a full participant to start training camp according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

"He is doing well," Budenholzer said. "You always are optimistic that [recovery time] is on the shorter end. I’ve told him, and he knows, we are always going to err on the side of caution. Easing him into camp and easing him into exhibition games. To some degree the next week to 10 days will tell us more." If Jack is able to be cleared in time for the season opener, he will be the favorite to win the backup PG job behind Dennis Schroder.

Jarrett Jack (knee surgery) said his knee is at about 80 percent.

Jack added he expects to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season as he'll join the Hawks. While Jack will provide Atlanta with a veteran option off the bench, his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues as he'll be stuck backing up Dennis Schroder.
Thu, Aug 4, 2016 12:14:00 PM

Jarrett Jack (knee surgery) dismissed claims that he won't be ready for the start of the season.

"I wouldn’t believe that. But I believe I’m probably a month out from participating fully in everything," Jack said. "I’m already on the court and going through drills, pretty much doing everything except for going against other people at 100 percent." This likely means that Jack will be ready for training camp, but it all depends on how his knee responds when he ramps up his workload. If healthy, Jack will be the second-string PG behind Dennis Schroder.

Jarrett Jack (knee) believes he is one month away from returning to full-contact workouts.

He's seven months removed from his surgery to repair his torn ACL and meniscus, so this means he's making excellent progress. The knee injury kept his price low in free agency, as he accepted a one-year deal with the Hawks for the veteran's minimum. He won't have much fantasy value in Atlanta with Dennis Schroder fully expected to start.

The Hawks and free agent Jarrett Jack have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal at the veteran's minimum.

Jack had right knee surgery in January to repair a torn ACL and meniscus, but he's hopeful to be ready for training camp. The injury is part of the reason Brooklyn couldn't trade him and eventually waived him, but if healthy he's a nice veteran addition behind Dennis Schroder at PG.

The Nets have officially waived Jarrett Jack.

It was the expected move for Brooklyn after they couldn't get anything for Jack on the trade market, and it'll be interesting to see if any teams claim him off the waiver wire. The most likely outcome will be Jack clearing waivers and then being free to sign with a team of his choosing. With Jack no longer on the roster, Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead will get all the run they can handle, and both those guys are on the radar as potential late-round targets on draft day. Yogi Ferrell's odds of making the regular season roster have also improved significantly.
