Updates from Monday, April 14
Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman has the latest on Reggie Jackson:
Will the Oklahoma City Thunder ever have a full-strength team for the postseason? With just three days left in the regular season, Reggie Jackson went down with a neck injury in Sunday's matchup against the Indiana Pacers.
As Jackson was guarding C.J. Watson, he ran into a screen from Ian Mahinmi. His head appeared to have snapped to the right, causing the problem.
The Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry reported that the 23-year-old guard wouldn't return to the game. He'll have X-rays to determine if there's a more serious injury:
The Thunder have not given any further word on his status at this time.
Jackson has really come into his own this year. He's playing twice as many minutes a night as he did in 2012-13 (28.7 vs. 14.2), and as a result, his scoring average has gone from 5.3 points last season to 13.2 points in 2013-14.
