Grizzlies Announce Jaren Jackson Underwent Right Foot Surgery

Jaren Jackson Jr. went under the knife on Wednesday to address a stress fracutre in his right foot, per the Memphis Grizzlies.

The procedure will knock the versatile big man out for at least 4-6 months before he makes a full recovery, according to the Grizzlies.

Jackson is coming a breakout season after averaging 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and a League-best 2.3 blocks per game in his fourth year in the NBA. Jackson was integral in the Grizzlies finishing second in the West with a 56-26 regular-season record.

Jackson has suffered two knee injures that knocked him out early during the first two seasons of his NBA season. However, Jacksons fortunes turned around last season after he played 78 games and earned first-team All-Defensive honors.

The pairing Jackson has formed with Ja Morant has made the Grizzlies one of the more dangerous up-and-coming squads in the NBA going into the 2022-23 campaign. As long as the team stays healthy, there’s no telling how quickly they’ll become a title threat in the coming future.
