New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

Hornets’ Jarrett Jack out rest of season with foot injury


This isn’t the Hornets tanking… but it doesn’t hurt.

Point guard Jarrett Jack — the one bright spot in a pretty dismal Hornets year on the court — is out for the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot, the team announced (hat tip to Marc Spears of Yahoo).

It’s not a huge shock, Jack had missed the last three games due to the injury. And with the team 15-41 and lottery bound, what is the point of pushing through the pain?

Jack had a breakout season (his seventh) where he led the Hornets in points at 15.6 per game (unless you count the 5 games Eric Gordon played in, then he leads), plus Jack racked up career highs in assists (6.3), rebounds (3.9) and minutes (34.0). He was the guy who tried to step into the vacuum created by the trade of Chris Paul and lead the team.

Greivis Vasquez is now your starting point guard in the big easy.

Jack has one year left on his deal and will return to the Hornets next season.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
