Jarrett Jack is inactive against the Thunder on Thursday.

He's fourth on the depth chart at point guard, but the three above him are on shaky ground in the short term. Maybe Jack gets a shot at minutes at some point, but there's no reason to stash him in fantasy.
Oct 19 - 6:39 PM

Jarrett Jack started at PG for the Knicks on Sunday, finishing with six points, five assists, one rebound and one steal in 23 minutes.

Jack started alongside Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr., Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez, but the Knicks' PG situation is still extremely murky. Frank Ntilikina (knee) and Ron Baker (ankle) were both out tonight, so Jack split the PG minutes with Ramon Sessions (12 points, five assists in 25 minutes). Neither veteran is a tempting fantasy asset in standard leagues.
Oct 8 - 10:41 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 11 points with two rebounds, five assists and two turnovers in 20 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

The Knicks likely want to bring Frank Ntilikina off the bench, so maybe Jack can make the team and possibly start. Still, there's little reason to draft him or Ramon Sessions until things clear up.
Oct 6 - 10:32 PM

Jarrett Jack said his knee is 100 percent healthy.

He had an ACL tear back in January of 2016 and only played two games in 2016-17 after picking up another season-ending knee injury. He has a non-guaranteed deal with the Knicks, but he could make a push for minutes since their current depth chart at PG consists of Frank Ntilikina, Ramon Sessions and Ron Baker. He's not on the standard-league radar unless he moves up the chart.

Knicks sign G Jarrett Jack.

It's official and it's reportedly a non-guaranteed deal. Jack has had some bad luck lately with an ACL tear in January 2016 and another season-ending knee injury last season. If he's healthy, he has a chance to earn a starting spot over Ramon Sessions. Frank Ntilikina is expected to be brought along slowly.
Sep 15 - 3:07 PM

The Knicks are expected to finalize a non-guaranteed deal with Jarrett Jack in the coming days.

The two sides have been linked since at least last month and it makes sense with the Knicks desperately needing a veteran point guard. The pre-Phil Jackson Knicks said they wanted to keep Frank Ntilikina to around 20 minutes, so Jack could compete with Ramon Sessions for the starting job.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Knicks may potentially consider signing Jarrett Jack.

The Knicks have one open roster spot remaining and could certainly use some depth at point guard. New York currently has just Ramon Sessions, Ron Baker and rookie Frank Ntilikina to handle PG responsibilities. Jack has plenty of NBA experience but has been unable to stay healthy. He tore his ACL in 2016 and missed the end of last season after suffering a torn meniscus. The Knicks are also reportedly looking at Trey Burke.
Sep 9 - 10:20 AM

The Knicks see Jarrett Jack as a potential free agent addition.

The Knicks basically missed on a free agent point guard and were only able to bring in Ramon Sessions. Jack suffered a torn meniscus last year to end his 2016-17 campaign, which stings even more after a season-ending ACL tear in 2015-16. Jack is 33 years old and may have a tougher time overcoming these knee injuries than some younger players.

Aug 23 - 5:36 PM

Jarrett Jack's (knee) 10-day contract with the Pelicans has expired, and he will not be brought back for another 10-day stint.

Unfortunately for Jack, he's dealing with a torn meniscus in the same knee that required an ACL repair in 2016, so his season is over.
Mar 6 - 4:32 PM

Jarrett Jack suffered a torn right meniscus and will be out 4-6 weeks.

That will basically end his season. Jack tweeted out he was frustrated earlier today, and now we know why. This is the same knee that needed an ACL repair in 2016, so he has a tough rehab on his hands.
Mar 3 - 8:01 PM

Jarrett Jack (knee) returned from a one-game absence with eight minutes, one assist and one steal against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He's likely going to have his minutes managed and will have to split the backup duties with Tim Frazier. Leave Jack on the wire.
Mar 1 - 11:25 PM

Jarrett Jack (knee) is available to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He did play 25 minutes in his debut, but E'Twaun Moore was not active for that game. Jack is going to have to battle Tim Frazier for the backup PG minutes, but Frazier's bum wrist could be a reason for Jack to play tonight. He's not a fantasy option right now.
Mar 1 - 6:43 PM

Jarrett Jack (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

He played his first game since Jan. 2, 2016 on Saturday, so it's not clear if he suffered a setback or if the Pelicans are taking it easy on him. Whatever the case, Tim Frazier will be the primary backup PG if Jack isn't cleared for Wednesday.
Feb 28 - 7:25 PM

Jarrett Jack made his season debut against the Mavs on Saturday, scoring six points with four assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

Not a bad way to kick off his season after getting a deal on Friday. Jack suffered an ACL tear on Jan. 2, 2016, so he had almost 14 months to rehab. The Pelicans have some major depth issues at guard, so maybe Jack can stick around to help make a playoff push. Although, E'Twaun Moore (personal) returning could hurt his chances of that happening. He's only a desperation add in very deep leagues.
