Jack tallied eight points (3-8 FG, 1-1 3 Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and a steal across26 minutes in Friday's 107-86 win over the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Jeff Hornacek opted to start JAck at the point over Ramon Sessions Friday, and Jack was efficient with a balanced stat line. Things are about to get more complicated for Hornacek, as rookie Frank Ntilikina saw his first action tonight, and he also fared well in limited actions. Hornacek will probably spend the next week kicking the tires of all of these point guards, so there's no immediate reason to roster any of them in the short term, but Jack may end up the loser here, as Nkilitina looks to have an edge on all of them in terms of natural talent.

Jack will start in Friday's game against the Nets, Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jack just recently made his Knicks regular season debut in their loss to the Celtics earlier this week, scoring four points in 18 minutes off the bench, so the move to the starting lineup is a rather surprising one. With Jack starting, that likely means Ramon Sessions will come off the bench in Friday's contest and potentially see a reduced role in favor of Jack.

Jack is active for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Steve Popper of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jack will be available for the first time this season after being a healthy scratch for Thursday's regular-season opener. He isn't expected to see significant minutes at point guard behind Ramon Sessions and Ron Baker, but he could see some light run off the bench with Frank Ntilikina (foot) out.

Jack is inactive for Thursday's season opener against the Thunder, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Jack a healthy scratch, it appears that Ramon Sessions, Frank Ntilikina and Ron Baker could all see time at point guard. It's unclear at the moment whether this will be a regular occurrence.

Jack is starting at point guard in Sunday's preseason game against the Nets, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jack played nine minutes in his first on-court action since tearing his ACL and meniscus, and it looks like, with a start on Sunday, the point guard could be in for even more minutes. Jack, however, is expected to serve as the team's third string point guard this season behind rookie Frank Ntilikina and Ramon Sessions.

Jack (knee) posted three points (1-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one steal across nine minutes in the Knicks' preseason loss to the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Jack is coming off a torn ACL and meniscus, but it appears as though he has put the knee ailments behind him completely, as he's not listed on the team's injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Wizards. With the Knicks thin at point guard for their contest in Washington, Jack could see extended minutes behind Ramon Sessions as he continues to ease his way back onto the court.

Jack (knee) signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Knicks on Thursday, Michael Scotto of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jack played in a total of just two games last season, as he began the year rehabbing a torn ACL and then ended up suffering a torn meniscus in March while playing on a 10-day contract with the Pelicans. With the full offseason to recover, Jack appears to be back to full strength and will bring some much-needed depth to the point guard position for the Knicks. The Knicks' current top two options at point guard include Ramon Sessions and rookie Frank Ntilikina, so Jack could push for a decent role right away. That said, the deal isn't guaranteed, which gives the Knicks some time during training camp to evaluate how well Jack comes back from his injuries before confirming his spot on the regular-season roster.

Jack's (knee) 10-day contract with the Pelicans expired Monday, and he won't be re-signed to a second 10-day deal, Keith Smith of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jack was signed Feb. 24 to provide depth in the backcourt after the Pelicans traded away three key guards to the Kings in the DeMarcus Cousins deal, but he appeared in only two games before suffering a torn right meniscus. With the injury expected to sideline Jack for the rest of the regular season, the Pelicans had little incentive to keep the veteran around after his 10-day deal expired. The Pelicans will use the open roster spot to sign Jordan Crawford, who will help restore some depth at point guard.

Jack is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a torn meniscus, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jack returned from a 14-month absence following a torn ACL on Feb. 25. He logged 25 minutes in that outing, but only managed eight minutes in his next game played versus the Pistons. The injury presumably occurred in that contest. The veteran guard could potentially miss the remainder of the season, as the team may not want to rush him back for just the last few weeks on the schedule. Jack's absence does not really affect the Pelicans' current rotation, as he did not have enough time on the court to establish his role with the team.

Jack (knee) has been ruled active for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

Jack sat out the second night of a back-to-back during his Pelicans debut as he is just now returning after 14 months of ACL tear recovery, but he will be good to go Wednesday night. He is unlikely to play the 25 minutes he played in his debut, as E'Twaun Moore is back in the lineup and will take back some of those minutes. Unless absences occur again in the future, Jack's contributions will be limited.
