Jack appeared in 80 games for the Nets in 2014-15, averaging 12.0 points, 4.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 26.7 percent from three.

In his first season with the Nets after spending the previous campaign in Cleveland, Jack was primarily a reserve but made 27 starts during the middle of the season when Deron Williams was injured and coming off the bench. A career 34.8 percent three-point shooter, Jack struggled from the outside, posting his worst single-season three-point percentage since his rookie year. He was particularly ineffective in January, shooting a paltry 19.6 percent from deep (3.1 attempts per game) as the Nets stumbled through a 3-12 month. Jack was able to briefly right the ship in February, shooting 38.1 percent from downtown while converting nearly 50 percent of his field goals. He was effective down the stretch as well, averaging 9.7 points and 3.1 assists in only 18.8 minutes in April as the Nets clinched the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. The veteran appeared in all six of the Nets' first-round playoff games against the Hawks, averaging 12.3 points, 4.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 51.9 percent from the field. His best performance came in a Game 2 loss, when he put up 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting to go with five rebounds and three assists. Next season, Jack enters the third year of the four-year, $25.2 million deal he inked with the Cavaliers prior to the 2013-14 season. He'll remain under contract through the 2016-17 campaign, after which he'll be an unrestricted free agent.

Jack scored 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six assists, four rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes off the bench Friday.

He's had an up and down series, but Jack is still one of the key members of the Nets' second unit. They'll need another big effort from him on Friday if the club is going to extend the series to a seventh game.

Jack scored a team-high 23 points (9-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with five rebounds, three assists and a steal in 29 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Hawks.

After chipping in 13 points in Game 1's loss, Jack stepped up his efforts but couldn't change the end result on Wednesday. He should remain one of the Nets' key bench contributors when the series shifts back to Brooklyn.

Jack posted 12 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, and two steals in 41 minutes of action Friday against the Bucks.

Jack is averaging 13.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 5.4 assists over the last five games. While he doesn't contribute much in steals and three-pointers, Jack is an efficient shooter -- going 47 percent from the field and 89 percent from the line during that span. He's worth owning in standard leagues in spite of his bench role, as Deron Williams' next injury is always around the corner.

Jack scored 18 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT) with four rebounds and four assists in 22 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

He's starting to find his rhythm again, scoring in double digits in three of his last four games, but the Nets' lack of depth at point guard probably eliminates any chance that Jack might join the starting five alongside Deron Williams and regain anything close to the fantasy value he had prior to Williams' return.

Jack (hamstring) made his return from injury during Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans, coming off the bench for 15 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes.

Jack came into this game on a minutes restriction, after missing Monday's outing with a hamstring injury. He was still able to play 28 minutes though, as the injury didn't look to have much of an impact. There's a possibility he could move back into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Rockets, especially considering he was more effective than Deron Williams in his return. We'll have to wait and see what coach Lionel Hollins decides to do in the next few days though, so it's a situation to monitor closely.

Jack (hamstring) will return to action Wednesday, but will play limited minutes off the bench, the New York Post's Tim Bontemps reports.

Deron Williams will start at point guard, with Markel Brown getting the start at shooting guard. It is hard to tell how much of Jack's role off the bench is due to his hamstring injury, or if the Nets are just looking to try something new. For now though, Jack's value is trending down.

Jack (hamstring) practiced Tuesday and is probable for Wednesday's matchup with the Pelicans, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports.

Jack sustained a minor hamstring injury last Tuesday against Memphis, which kept him out of the team's last two games. After putting in a full practice, it seems likely he'll be back in the mix Wednesday, meaning Deron Williams could be pushed back to the bench.

Jack (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Nuggets, ESPN New York's Devin Kharpertian reports.

With Jack out, Deron Williams and Darius Morris will be the lone point guard options for the Nets on Monday. Williams ended up seeing 40 minutes in Brooklyn's last game, and that could happen once again against Denver. Consider Jack questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.
