Indiana Pacers center Isaiah Jackson has made a strong return after impressive numbers in the G League

For five straight Indiana Pacers games, young center Isaiah Jackson wasn’t on the rotation. That was the longest stretch the young big man hasn’t played significant basketball for the Pacers since the 2022 All-Star hiatus. The team changed their rotation in mid-December and Jackson lost playing time as a result.

To get some replays, Jackson played in two games last week for Indiana’s G-League affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. He played back-to-back, which was a great way for the 20-year-old to rack up reps and keep his conditioning in the right place.
