After leaving Friday's game at Dallas, Reggie Jackson has been diagnosed with a right wrist contusion after undergoing further evaluation Saturday in Oklahoma City. Jackson is officially being listed as day-to-day. Jackson’s injury occurred with 9:19 remaining in the third quarter of the Thunder's 118-109 preseason victory over the Mavs. He contorted his body to avoid contact from Mavs forward Al-Farouq Aminu, who met Jackson at the rim to contest a layup attempt. Jackson made the shot, but the angle he took resulted in him landing awkwardly, with his right arm taking the brunt of the impact. Oklahoman
