Magic Second-Rounder Out For The Season

Justin Jackson, a second-round pick by Orlando who is spending the year with the Lakeland Magic on a G League contract, has suffered a season-ending injury, according to a tweet from the Lakeland team.

The Magic weren’t specific about exactly what happened to Jackson, but he had a torn labrum when he played at Maryland that forced him to miss much of the 2017/18 season and kept him out of summer league action. Jackson averaged 4.5 PPG and 3.8 RPG in 10 games while shooting 34% from the floor in his first G League season.

Orlando picked up Jackson’s rights in a draft-night trade with the Nuggets, moving down from No. 41 to No. 43 and acquiring a 2019 second-round pick in the deal.
