Indiana Pacers rookie Isaiah Jackson produced an all-around performance Friday on assignment with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants against the Wisconsin Herd in the NBA G League.

Jackson finished with six points, eight rebounds, four blocked shots and one steal in 14 minutes of work during the 111-108 loss. He converted on 3-of-9 shots from the field, missing his lone 3-point attempt, in his second game with the Mad Ants.

The 22nd overall pick is with the Mad Ants rehabbing after suffering a hyperextended left knee on Oct. 27 against the Toronto Raptors. He was considered to be week-to-week with the injury and had made enough progress to be cleared to play this week.

Jackson finished with 24 points on 11-of-13 shooting from the field during his debut with the Mad Ants on Wednesday. He also hauled in eight rebounds and blocked two shots in 21 minutes of work as the Mad Ants played at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

He has spent much of the past week with the Mad Ants in an effort to increase his rehab from the injury. He looked to have no lingering effects from the injury and had minimal rust during his two games on both ends of the floor.

Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle revealed on Friday that Jackson would spend the weekend with the Mad Ants before potentially returning to the parent club. The opportunity to play with the Mad Ants will serve as a great chance to get his legs and conditioning back.

The Mad Ants return to play on Sunday once again versus the Herd.
