Does Thunder’s Jackson Deserve Chance?

The play of Eric Maynor has raised the question of whether second-year guard Reggie Jackson deserves a shot to show how he might fare running the second unit.
Maynor, once a steady hand and stabilizing presence off the bench, has not been himself since returning from a torn ACL. It’s an injury that understandably leads to rust but one Maynor, Brooks and others insist is fully healed. Yet through 14 games Maynor has made only a marginal impact. He’s averaging 4.1 points and 1.9 assists while shooting just 31.7 percent from the field. All are career-lows.
