Jaren Jackson Jr. is dealing with a torn meniscus in his left knee and he will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
JJJ suffered the injury during Monday's game, and unfortunately, the second-year forward is again having his season cut short due to injury. His timetable will depend on how he decides to treat the injury, with the removal of the meniscus typically offering a quicker turnaround (but potential long-term consequences), and a repair of the meniscus usually involving months of rehab. Brandon Clarke is likely going to start the rest of the way, and there will be more opportunity for Gorgui Dieng. Aug 04 6:33 pm (EST)
