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. Sep 8 - 1:16 PM

Reggie Jackson said he's aware of the some of the contracts this summer for guys like Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parsons.

He's due for an extension before Oct. 31 and it appears unlikely he'll get a deal done. "It's been some groundbreaking deals going on this summer, and I have to take that into account," Jackson said. He is heading into 2014-15 with a bigger role with Thabo Sefolosha out and Anthony Morrow in at shooting guard. RJ could be in for a big year and is a player we're targeting in the second half of fantasy drafts.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are unlikely to reach a deal on an extension with Reggie Jackson before the October 31 deadline, according to NewsOK.com

The Thunder would prefer to lock Jackson up now as he is set to be a restricted free agent after the 2014-15 season, the team, but that scenario is looking unlikely according to NewsOK.com's report. The 23-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 his fantasy value is a tad limited as long as Russell Westbrook is healthy.

Coach Scott Brooks has been non-committal on the idea of starting Reggie Jackson next season.

He started the final four games of the postseason and really helped the OKC offense. On the other hand, his lack of size created some problems on the other end. Russell Westbrook could cover shooting guards and maybe a full offseason to set up their defense helps them. Even if he does get more minutes in the first unit, his potential fantasy value may be negated by a lower usage rate.

Reggie Jackson said he'd like to be a starter for next season.

He said he doesn't know if he will wind up getting the starting job, but he looked to have earned it in the playoffs. Although, Jackson was often in bad matchups on defense against guys like Kawhi Leonard. It sounds like Thabo Sefolosha won't be back, which potentially opens up the starting shooting guard spot.

Reggie Jackson stepped up in another start at shooting guard in Game 6 on Saturday, finishing with 21 points, five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 46 minutes.

He's been tremendous around the basket during the entire postseason, making 70.6 percent of those shots before tonight. Jackson proved he's one of the better young guards in the NBA and is a dynamic scorer in most offensive sets. It should be very interesting to see how he develops into their plans for next season. As far as fantasy goes, his arrow is pointing up after a small breakout.

Reggie Jackson's ankle injury appeared to be a non-issue in Game 5's 117-89 loss on Thursday, finishing with 11 points, three boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He started out 5-of-5 from the field, but then missed his following five shots. Jackson played 32 minutes in this game and coach Scott Brooks seems totally sold to keep him in there with the starters, which makes sense based on how he's looked all season. He'll be an important part of Game 6 on Saturday.

Reggie Jackson (ankle) will start in Thursday's Game 5 against the Spurs, according to head coach Scott Brooks.

All signs pointed to Jackson playing, but now there is confirmation that he will indeed be in the starting lineup. He was in obvious pain after rolling his right ankle in Game 4, but managed to play through it. Jackson has provided a scoring boost to the Thunder's starting 5 after replacing Thabo Sefolosha in Game 3. If his ankle does hinder him in any way, look for Jeremy Lamb to see increased minutes.
May 29 - 3:25 PM

Scott Brooks said Reggie Jackson (ankle) is "feeling pretty good" on Wednesday.

Brooks added his starting guard will get treatment on his sprained ankle on Wednesday and Thursday. Jackson said earlier today that'll be playing in Game 5, and we're expecting him to be at Thursday's morning shootaround. Jackson has been outstanding vs. the Spurs, posting a net rating of plus 19.7 in the regular season and the his move into the starting lineup has also been a positive.
May 28 - 3:24 PM

Reggie Jackson (sprained ankle) said after Tuesday's game that he'll be ready to play in Game 5 on Thursday.

"It’s not really a big deal," Jackson said. "No excuse. I think a lot of people about this time [of the postseason] have a bum ankle or a ding up. Just play through it." Jackson badly rolled his ankle and wasn't able to return after the injury, so despite his optimism we'll consider him questionable until the Thunder officially announce his status.

Reggie Jackson tried to return from his sprained right ankle on Tuesday, but wasn't able to stay in the win over the Spurs.

Jackson's right ankle appears to have been sprained badly, and his status for Game 5 in San Antonio is clearly in doubt. He finished with three points in 13 minutes, and his absence might have been the key factor in Russell Westbrook's best playoff game ever. Consider Jackson a game-time decision against the Spurs on Thursday.

Reggie Jackson appeared to badly sprain his ankle early in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Spurs.

He had to find someone to foul to force a stop in the action and get out of the game, and immediately hobbled to the locker room. It would be surprising to see him return tonight, but even if he does, his status for Game 5 is very much in doubt. Jeremy Lamb replaced him in the lineup, but this probably just means more minutes for Russell Westbrook.
May 27 - 9:15 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 15 points with four rebounds, five assists and one steal in 37 minutes during a rare start alongside Russell Westbrook on Sunday.

OKC rolled out a starting lineup that barely played together throughout the season, featuring Westbrook, Jackson, Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins, and the result was their first victory in the Western Conference finals. Gregg Popovich paid Jackson a compliment before the series, referring to him as a "Spurs killer" due to his success during the regular season, and it stands to reason that he'll start at SG again for Game 4 on Tuesday.
May 25 - 11:13 PM

Reggie Jackson will replace Thabo Sefolosha in Oklahoma City's starting lineup for Game 3 on Sunday.

Sefolosha hasn't scored in the past two games, whereas Jackson has averaged 10.5 points on combined 10-of-18 shooting in the series, so coach Scott Brooks decided to inject more offensive firepower into his starting unit. Jackson absolutely torched San Antonio during the regular season and he'll need to have some big games for OKC to climb out of their 0-2 hole.
May 25 - 6:59 PM

Reggie Jackson picked up the slack for Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, coming off the bench to hit 11-of-16 shots, two 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws on his way to a career-high 32 points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block to carry the Thunder in Saturday's thrilling 92-89 overtime win against the Grizzlies to tie their series at 2-2.

Scott Brooks owes Jax big time, as the Thunder would have been put into a 1-3 hole if not for his heroics, and Brooks' job was possibly hanging in the balance. Jackson outscored the Grizz 13-9 in the final minute of regulation and overtime, and had scored a total of 15 points in his previous three games. Durant and Westbrook combined to hit just 11-of-45 shots on the night, although both had plenty of goodies in their stat lines to make up for the poor shooting. Serge Ibaka's 12 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks will likely go unnoticed due to Jackson's heroics, but they shouldn't be. Game 5 is in OKC on Tuesday.
