Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr. lost for season due to meniscus tear

On Tuesday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Memphis Grizzlies second-year forward Jaren Jackson Jr. suffered a meniscus tear in his left knee and won't play again during the NBA restart held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex bubble site: 

It's a nightmare blow for a Memphis side that dropped three consecutive games to begin the resumption of its season. The Grizzlies sit at 32-36 and only two games ahead of the Portland Trail Blazers and San Antonio Spurs for the final Western Conference playoff berth. 

Memphis must hold a lead of at least four-and-a-half games to avoid a play-in game or games for that postseason spot. 

Jackson, 20 years old, averaged 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, and 1.4 assists in 57 appearances this season.

Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
