A day after Ashton Adamson and her Century High School girls basketball teammates completed an undefeated season with a 4A state championship, the sophomore got an extra reward. Adamson received a phone call from NBA player Frank Jackson, who congratulated her on the season’s success.
Jackson, a rookie on the New Orleans Pelicans who prepped at Lone Peak High in Highland, Utah, and Adamson had a mutual contact, who helped set up the connection. Adamson said her conversation with Jackson lasted around 20 minutes and covered her individual accomplishments, as well as her team’s — plus some advice on how to perfect her craft.
Over his last eight games, the rookie is averaging 14.3 points and 4.4 rebounds — including back-to-back 20-point outings over the weekend — while shooting 52 percent from the field and 37 percent from deep. Jackson’s scoring responsibilities have only increased with star guard Jrue Holiday sidelined due to an abdominal strain, but he’s still managed to remain mostly efficient with his offensive output — a rarity for players his age and size. “I think he’s learned angles and finishing and things like that,” Gentry said. “There’s some things he’s still got to work on, but I think everyone can see that he’s made improvements.”
Jim Eichenhofer: Frank Jackson on participating in his first #NBA practice (not counting summer league), after missing all of ’17-18: “Honestly, I had to stop and just kind of smile (and say to myself), ‘I’m here.’ I’ve been through a lot. It just feels really good to play basketball again.”
Jim Eichenhofer: Dell Demps on Frank Jackson (13 pts in 13 minutes prior to left ankle sprain) in summer league: “We were disappointed he was injured in the first game. He gave us a little taste. But he’s a gritty guy. It was good to see a little bit of it, but wish we could’ve seen more.”
Jim Eichenhofer: #Pelicans summer head coach Kevin Hanson expressing optimism about Frank Jackson (out 2-4 weeks with left ankle sprain, after he had 13 pts in 13 mins pre-injury Friday): “Obviously he’s a little bummed he’s out, but we all saw what he can do in a short amount of time.”
The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that guard Frank Jackson has been diagnosed with a left ankle sprain. An MRI taken today and reviewed by Pelicans Director of Medical Services Dr. Misty Suri confirmed the extent of the injury. Jackson will miss the remainder of the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2018. The estimated timetable for return is 2-4 weeks.
Jim Eichenhofer: #Pelicans summer coach Kevin Hanson on Frank Jackson prior to ankle sprain: “He looked really good. (Toronto’s defense) couldn’t keep him in front of them. It was really, really impressive to watch, actually… I liked what he was doing, the way he was moving and attacking.”
Scott Kushner: Frank Jackson is allowed to play two consecutive days at a time, on a 25 minutes restriction, so he sat out yesterday’s practice but will play today and tomorrow. The restriction is expected to grow closer to 30 mins next week.
Jim Eichenhofer: #Pelicans summer head coach Kevin Hanson on Frank Jackson: “Super explosive, looks really good. His rhythm will probably be a little off (at first), but we’re going to try to get it there quickly…being able to guard the ball, he can be an elite defender in this league, I think”
Scott Kushner: I’m told the #Pelicans expect both Frank Jackson and Cheick Diallo to participate in Summer League. Jackson (foot) missed all of last season due to injury after Pels traded up to draft him at No. 31. Diallo, entering his third season, played in 59 games but is still developing.

Will Guillory: One note from earlier: Alvin Gentry said that Frank Jackson was going to participate in yesterday’s practice, but they decided to hold him out bc of an illness. Jackson still not ready to do full-contact drills, but he’s getting closer to a return.
