On Friday, the Indiana Pacers announced that rookie Isaiah Jackson was diagnosed with a hyperextended left knee and will be considered week-to-week with the injury.

Jackson suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter on Wednesday versus the Toronto Raptors. He appeared to land awkwardly on his left leg after attempting to chase a rebound, and eventually needed assistance back to the locker room.

Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said Jackson was in a walking brace following the injury and is in good spirits. However, he added that Jackson would be out for a while as he recovers from the injury.

The game on Wednesday versus the Raptors was just the second appearance of the season for Jackson. He has totaled just 11 minutes of playing time, and hasn’t been a prominent member of the rotation for Carlisle, at least to begin the season.

Carlisle previously praised Jackson for his ability on defense, calling it breathtaking the way he can impact games on that end of the floor. He hasn’t yet played much this season but it is clear the team has high hopes for him in the future.
