How are you doing mentally and physically right now? Jaren Jackson Jr: I’ve been good. I knew going into this process that it was going to take a little bit. I definitely had probably a day where I was just mad about it, but definitely not now. I have a lot better perspective over the whole thing. And I’m young. I got to just make sure everything is right, because I don’t want to be having these problems later. So I’m just taking the time now to make sure my body is good, my knee is good, I’m healthy. … I’ll be back this [season]. Who knows when, but it won’t be too long.

During the team’s trip to the Orlando bubble in July, Jaren Jackson Jr. tore the meniscus in his left knee. He returned from the trip early to begin his rehab. His teammate, Justise Winslow, who was also injured in the bubble, is rehabbing his injury with him. “I had a quicker start to my offseason getting healthy again and getting workouts and all that,” Jackson said. “I’ve been basically seeing Justise every day of my life, literally. We’ve been in there grinding. We made it a goal to never have a bad day and we’ve never had a bad day pretty much ever.”

It remained unclear whether Durant will travel to Atlanta for the game on March 7.
A Knicks official said Rivers was at the Garden, but in the back getting treatment for a sore ankle. Rivers was not listed on the pregame injury report submitted to the NBA. On the box score, Rivers was listed with a DNP-Coach’s Decision. Earlier this week, Rivers said of his situation: “I can’t control if I’m traded today, tomorrow or the next day. What I can control is how I am as a player.’’
Storyline: Austin Rivers Trade?
That doesn’t mean he’s a finished product. There’s a reason the Raptors signed him with G League intentions and not for the NBA roster. The 10-day contract (about $82,000) affords them six games to see how he can fit and progress in their environment. It’s an audition by another name, and not the first time the Raptors have used a 10-day to get a 905 look at a prospect. “This gives us a chance to get Donta down in our system, teach him our ins and outs and the way we operate our offence, our defence, our schemes, and see how he looks running those,” general manager Chad Sanders said. “With Tampa just down the street, it’s a chance for us to get him out there and get some reps and get a chance to evaluate him for the big club.”
