Jarrett Jack Out For Season With Broken Foot

New Orleans Hornets starting point guard Jarrett Jack (pictured left) will miss the remainder of the season due to a stress fracture in his right foot. Greivis Vasqeuz will take over the starting spot, but the Hornets have no backup at PG.

One option could be using Marco Belinelli as the backup at the 1 and the 2 spot. Belinelli actually started at point guard the first game of the season when Jack was suspended and Vasquez hadn’t arrived to the team yet after his trade. Marco is naturally a shooting guard, but with only 10 games left in the season, and with starting SG Eric Gordon back, Belinelli could fill in off the bench at both positions. This would likely not be an option if there was still a lot of time left in the season.

Another option is signing a D-league player to a two 10-day contracts.

Jack did a nice job this season, setting career-highs of 15.6 points, 6.3 assists and 3.9 rebounds in an average of 34 minutes per game. The 7th year pro out of Georgia Tech led the Hornets in scoring 16 times this year and in assists 27 times.

Late last month, Jarrett recorded his first NBA triple-double with 17 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds against Golden State.
