JJJ Out 6-8 Weeks

Memphis got some tough news today as Jaren Jackson Jr tore his left hamstring and is expected to miss 6 to 8 weeks. Its awful timing as just yesterday we wrote about the breakthrough year he was having as the starting 5. Even though he is unable to play through the injury his overall grade only went down 5 points. That leaves the team hoping he will be able to come back sooner then the 6-8 weeks. The All Star break is about a month away.

Memphis will try something different without him and go small with Clarke as the starting 5 and T.J at the 4. This lineup will be dynamite on offense and will struggle with size and interior defense. Jonas will see increased minutes off the bench and this will help stagger him and Clarke. Kyle Anderson will get 10 minutes as the 9th man.

Jaren has been plagued by injuries he even missed some games earlier this year. This will speed up the process of Memphis looking for another big to fill out the roster. The Cavs are expected to cut Kevin Love soon as they are now out of the playoffs and he is out of the rotation.
