According to a report from The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, former Lone Peak star guard and Duke Blue Devil Frank Jackson underwent surgery Wednesday for a stress reaction in his right foot and is expected to be sidelined until July.
Wojnarowski reported that Jackson, who declared for the June 22 NBA draft and has hired an agent, suffered the injury while at Duke but played through it. The 6-foot-3 Jackson performed and tested well at the draft combine in Chicago earlier this month and hired an agent at that time, removing the possibility of him returning to Duke.
Thanks to his impressive performance in Chicago, Jackson's draft stock was thought to have improved, with many analysts predicting he'd get selected somewhere in the late first or early second round.
"If you're an NBA team, you may take him in the late first round, thinking future because of the ability to score," said ESPN's Fran Fraschilla about Jackson during the Combine.
It is unclear if Jackson will be ready to play in summer league in July, Wojnarowski reported.
A McDonald's All-American with the Knights, Jackson averaged 10.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists in his lone season with the Blue Devils.
