Would you jump when shooting a basketball?

In any event, the question isn't "should", it's is it allowed. No mention of it being prohibited here:http://games.crossfit.com/workouts/the-open?#tabs-4 (wsf)

Most people at least have their heels lifting off the ground a bit. I'm not sure jumping will be more efficient over 150 reps, however.
