Jackson missed Friday’s game against the Clippers with the injury. He had played in 58 of the team’s previous 59 games this season.
The 19-year-old is averaging 13.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.
It is unclear how long Jackson will be out, but with Memphis sporting a 23-36 record and nine games out of a playoff spot coming into Friday’s game, it could be for a good while.
