Josh Jackson suspended 1 game by Grizzlies' G League team

SAN FRANCISCO -- Former first-round draft pick Josh Jackson was suspended for the Memphis Hustle's G League game on Monday because of a violation of team rules.

The Hustle are the G League affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies, and Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins addressed the situation prior to Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors.

"Obviously, it's an internal matter," Jenkins said. "He didn't play today, so that's something that we're going to address. It was a violation of team rules, and that's something we're going to keep internal for us."

Jackson, who was originally drafted by the Phoenix Suns with the fourth pick in the 2017 Draft, is averaging 22.7 points a game for the Hustle in 11 games this season. When asked if Jackson's suspension would hurt him in his ability to make it back to the Grizzlies' active roster, Jenkins demurred.

"We're going to handle that internally," Jenkins said. "And we'll see what happens from here."
