Grizzlies Star Could Make Season Debut Tomorrow Night

Memphis Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. could finally make his season debut versus the New Orleans Pelicans tomorrow night after being upgraded to questionable, per ESPN's Tim McMahon. 

Jackson has been on the shelf for the first couple of months of the 2022-23 season recovering from a procedure on his right foot.

After never playing over 60 games in a season through the first three years of his career, the 6-foot-11 big man finally had a healthy campaign in 2021-22. 

Jackson played 78 games and tallied averages of 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks.

He led the league in blocks and made the All-Defensive First Team to anchor the Grizzlies to the 6th best defensive rating in the NBA last season.

In other injury news, Ja Morant will return from a one-game absence due to a sore ankle. Meanwhile, it is highly likely that Desmond Bane will miss his second consecutive game due to a toe injury.

The Grizzlies are currently 9-5 on the season.
