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.

Jarrett Jack has agreed to a 10-day contract with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Jack has not appeared in an NBA game since he tore his ACL while playing for the Nets in January of 2016. The signing makes sense, as New Orleans had a need for a guard after trading away Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway in the DeMarcus Cousins deal. Still, Jack can be left on the waiver wire until he proves he is healthy and can still be productive.

Combo guard Jarrett Jack will work out for the guard-depleted Pelicans, according to Marc Stein.

The former Yellow Jacket and NBA vet last played for the Nets and Hawks, and is trying to come back from an ACL tear suffered in 2016. The Pelicans, who need guard help after the DeMarcus Cousins trade, would be a nice landing spot for him, but he's 33 years old and probably wouldn't make much of a fantasy impact even if he were to be signed.
Feb 23 - 1:27 PM

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.
Thu, Oct 13, 2016 12:15:00 PM

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.
