Date:

Jarrett Jack has ben diagnosed with a torn right ACL as well as a torn right meniscus, and he will miss the remainder of the season.

A date for surgery has yet to be determined. It's awful news for Jack, and it confirms what many feared when he initially went down vs. Boston on Saturday when he was hurt on a non-contact play. Shane Larkin was worth a speculative addition as soon as Jack went down, and he should be added everywhere now that he's locked into a major role. Donald Sloan will also have to play more, while Wayne Ellington should get some additional run, as well. It's not a pretty picture, and the Nets may very well explore their options (Tony Wroten?) at the position. Jack's contract option for next season is non-guaranteed.

Jarrett Jack said that he has "never felt pain like that before" in regards to the knee injury he suffered on Saturday vs. the Celtics.

"I had never felt pain like that before, so I knew it was something," Jack said on Saturday. "I'm going to try to stay positive and try not to speculate. I'm still optimistic, still hoping for the best, and tomorrow we'll find out what the future may hold." Jack will undergo an MRI on Sunday, so we should know the extent of his injury later this afternoon. It could be a potentially serious injury, so Shane Larkin needs to be picked up everywhere.

Jarrett Jack will have an MRI on his right knee on Sunday.

His knee buckled on a drive to the hoop without any contact, so this is very concerning. Additionally, he couldn't put any weight on his leg on the way back to the locker room. Shane Larkin wasn't great down the stretch in this one, but he is worth a speculative add everywhere. Jack's owners should sit tight for now until the Nets update his status on Sunday. For what it's worth, Jack was walking gingerly in the locker room without crutches (the Nets made him use them later on) and appeared to be in good spirits.

Jarrett Jack hurt his right knee on a non-contact play on Saturday.

Not good. His right leg gave out on him and he couldn't put any weight on his way to the locker room. There's a decent chance Jack will be looking at an extended absence here, so grabbing Shane Larkin speculatively isn't a bad idea for owners needing a point guard. The Nets should have an update after the game.
Jan 2 - 4:48 PM

Lionel Hollins said that he will go with his usual starters of Jarrett Jack, Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson, Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez for Wednesday's game vs. the Magic.

Jack was benched to start the second-half of Monday's win over Miami in favor of Shane Larkin, but Jack still played down the stretch and Hollins said after the game that he contemplated benching his entire starting five. Jarrett's role as a starter in Brooklyn is safe for now, and Larkin isn't much more than a low-end asset in deep leagues while he's coming off the bench.

Jarrett Jack scored 18 points with six assists, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes vs. the Heat on Monday.

He was benched at the start of the second half in favor of Shane Larkin (eight points, seven assists), but coach Lionel Hollins said he considered benching the entire starting five. Jack still played down the stretch, so his starting spot should be safe moving forward.

Jarrett Jack scored 15 points with two rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

Jack was really struggling before this one with three bad games in a row. Still, he's had a decent run in December, averaging 12.0 points, 4.5 boards, 7.3 dimes, 1.4 steals and 0.8 treys in his previous December games. He's still only made 38 percent from the field this month, which explains why he's only put up seventh-round value in December.

Jarrett Jack's struggles continued on Monday vs. the Bulls, finishing with just six points on 2-of-9 shooting with eight assists, three boards, one steal and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

That's two poor performances in a row for Jack after he finished Sunday's loss to the Wolves with just four points in 30 minutes. Jack has been a top-90 player on the year, but you have to wonder if the Nets will look to deal him at the deadline since a playoff run is all but out of the question. His owners should stick with him for now, though.

Jarrett Jack came back earth on Sunday, scoring just four points on 2-of-9 shooting to go with six assists, one steal and three turnovers through 30 minutes of play.

Jack has struggled with consistency throughout his career, and this is just another example of that. He's in an ideal situation to produce as Brooklyn's starting point guard, but with the Nets sitting on a 7-20 record, there are no guarantees that Jack finishes the 2015-16 season as a member of the Nets. He has a very trade-friendly contract (team-option of $6.3 million next season), so owners may want to consider selling high on Jarrett after his next hot-streak.

Jarrett Jack had his best game of the year against the Pacers during a 104-97 loss on Friday, scoring 26 points with nine rebounds, six assists, three steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

Wow. That's season highs in boards, steals, blocks and threes. Jack is doing a much better job putting up well-rounded stat lines over his last five, averaging 16.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 8.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 treys. This might be a small chance to sell him for $1.25 on the dollar right now.

Jarrett Jack recorded his fifth double-double of the season vs. Miami, scoring 22 points and handing out 10 assists in a losing effort.

He shot 7-of-14 from the field and 7-of-8 from the FT line, with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, two steals and only two turnovers in 36 minutes. He's running hot lately with at least seven assists and one 3-pointer in four straight games, and is a lock for late-round value as long as he's running the show in Brooklyn.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 10:47:00 PM

Jarrett Jack scored a team-high 15 points against the Magic on Monday with five rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He had 10 before half and garbage time didn't affect him too much because he only missed the final four minutes of the game. Jack hasn't really been very helpful this season outside of free throw shooting and assists, so he's only a low-end point guard to own.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 10:42:00 PM

Jarrett Jack scored 16 points in a loss to the Clippers on Saturday with five rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

It was his fourth double-double of the season and he had extra ball-handling responsibilities. Jack has been pretty bad in his previous 10 games, averaging just 10.7 points, 4.0 boards, 6.1 assists and 1.1 steals on 38.3 percent from the field. Jack is a low-end fantasy point guard.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 07:45:00 PM

Jarrett Jack hit 4-of-8 shots for 10 points, five rebounds, nine assists and three steals in Tuesday's win.

Despite a recent rise by Shane Larkin, Jack is averaging 9.6 points, 4.2 boards, 5.4 assists and 1.8 steals over his last five games, making him a serviceable fantasy point guard.
