Reggie Jackson (bruised wrist) "didn't feel comfortable" after practicing on Monday, but he's expected to be ready for OKC's season opener.

It sounds like he'll sit out again vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, but this injury doesn't affect his fantasy projection. He'll be a major part of the Thunder offense while Kevin Durant is out, and even with KD active Jackson has a chance to return top-80 value.
Oct 21 - 6:30 PM

Reggie Jackson (bruised right wrist) went through a full practice on Monday and there's a chance he returns for Tuesday's preseason game vs. Utah.

Jackson has gone through multiple full contact practices without any setbacks, so we're going to say he's very probable to return on Tuesday. He's going to be asked to do a lot with Kevin Durant (foot) on the sidelines, and he makes for a solid early-late round selection in standard leagues.
Oct 20 - 2:42 PM

Reggie Jackson (bruised right wrist) will sit out again vs. the Wolves on Sunday.

Jackson was close to play on Friday and he's gone through full workouts without any setbacks, so his absence is simply a precaution. With Jeremy Lamb (heel) also on the sidelines, there should be ample minutes available for Andre Roberson, Sebastian Telfair, Anthony Morrow and Michael Jenkins.
Oct 19 - 6:02 PM

Reggie Jackson (wrist) will not play in Friday's preseason game vs. Toronto.

Coach Scott Brooks said that Jackson is "close" to making a return to the court, so this wrist injury seems very minor. Jackson will need to step it up in a big way while Kevin Durant (foot) is on the sidelines, and he's well worth a late-round selection in standard leagues.
Oct 17 - 6:53 PM

Reggie Jackson's bruised right wrist will prevent him from playing in Tuesday's exhibition.

Jackson is day-to-day and his fantasy value got a major boost this week -- in Kevin Durant's absence, he'll need to fill a major gap in OKC's offense. Whether he comes off the bench or slots into the starting lineup alongside Russell Westbrook, he's worth drafting toward the late rounds.
Oct 14 - 6:51 PM

GM Sam Presti stated that Reggie Jackson could miss some time with a right wrist contusion, but he's expected to be back relatively soon.

The Thunder will really need Jackson back as soon as possible as they'll be lacking in offensive options with Durant (foot) sidelined. The injury doesn't sound serious, and Jackson remains a safe early-late round target in standard leagues.
Oct 12 - 1:13 PM

With news that Kevin Durant will be sidelined for a minimum of the first 6-8 weeks, Reggie Jackson looks to be the team's second-option on offense.

Jackson averaged 14.1 points, 5.1 assists, 3.7 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.1 three-pointers as a starter for the Thunder last season, and he should have no problem returning to those numbers to start the 2014-15 season. Owners can bump him up a bit on draft boards, and he now profiles as more of an early-late round selection in standard leagues.
Oct 12 - 11:32 AM

Reggie Jackson left Friday's game with an arm injury and did not return, finishing with 13 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes.

He looked great and was the engine of the second unit. The Thunder did not provide an update on his injury, but we'll keep you posted on Saturday. Jackson is a solid guard to select in the late rounds due to his game translating to fantasy very well.
Oct 11 - 12:14 AM

Reggie Jackson scored nine points on 2-of-7 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs in 23 minutes off the bench vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Jackson added six assists and zero turnovers off the bench, which is a key to his contract extension talks with the Thunder. He views himself as a starting PG, a position which suits him better than SG, but Russell Westbrook isn't going anywhere soon. As a bench player with nice upside he's worth considering as a flier pick in standard drafts.
Oct 9 - 12:33 AM

Reggie Jackson told media on Monday that he wants to be a starter this season because he wants "to be great."

"I want to be great ... I can't remember anyone great that wasn't a starter," said Jackson. Jackson's fantasy value is much better if he can beat out Anthony Morrow for the starting shooting guard position, and it helps his case that the Thunder have seen success running a Westbrook-Jackson backcourt. However, his value wouldn't be totally diminished if coach Scott Brooks decides to keep Jackson as the team's sixth man. Whether he's starting or coming off the bench, Jackson is a solid late-round target in standard leagues.
Sep 29 - 5:39 PM

Scott Brooks did not rule out Reggie Jackson as his starting shooting guard.

He's probably the favorite for the starting job ahead of newly-signed Anthony Morrow. The Thunder had a lot of success with a Westbrook-Jackson backcourt last season and the move would help Jackson's fantasy value. He would still likely get a lot of production with the second unit, which will help his usage rate immensely. Jackson is a great late-round target.
Sep 29 - 1:17 PM

Thunder GM Sam Presti is confident that the team will extend Reggie Jackson's contract before the start of the season.

OKC's management is expecting big things from Jackson, but he's stated in the past that he wants to start and he may balk at an extension if he isn't guaranteed a starting spot. The Thunder should make every effort to re-sign him after he averaged 13.1 points, 1.0 three pointers, 3.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.1 steals last season, but keep in mind Russell Westbrook was out for an extended period.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are making every effort to sign Reggie Jackson to a contract extension.

Jackson will become a restricted free agent after the 2014-15 season if an extension is not signed before October 31. Thunder GM Sam Presti said that Jackson is a core member of the team and that the organization will go all-out to sign him to an extension. The 24-year-old averaged 13.1 points, 1.0 three-pointers, 3.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.1 steals during the 2013-14 season, but will have a tough time surpassing those numbers in 2014-15 playing behind Russell Westbrook.
Sep 25 - 1:35 PM

Reggie Jackson is expected to get interest from the Mavs, Heat, Knicks and Lakers next summer when he becomes a restricted free agent.

Jackson would become the best point guard on any of those teams' rosters as it stands right now, and they also project to have the cap space to make him an offer. He'll get plenty of minutes next to Russell Westbrook and should be in for a productive 2014-15 season.
