In....well this is a shocker.

For those who are inevitably going to ask: NO, he cannot join a team for the playoffs.

Actually, I take that back. I think he COULD be in playoffs IF he's picked up off waivers, but his salary is so high, noone has cap space to do it. So technically yes, but in reality, no...he won't be on a playoff team.

Yes but looks like he won't be eligible to be on a playoff roster.

A playoff team should pick up Captain Jack for him to make a big shot in the playoffs

his daughter passed away earlier in the season. I wonder if this has anything to do with it, or rather, did something internal happen between him and the team.
