Reggie Jackson (ankle) has been cleared to do light running in his rehab.
He is still likely a couple weeks away from his return, which makes sense based on how he's only cleared for light running. Jackson was expected to miss 6-8 back on Dec. 27, so it sounds like he'll be closer to eight weeks. While he's out, Ish Smith will get most of the minutes with Jameer Nelson likely to help out in the second unit. Feb 21 - 4:04 PM

Ish Smith led Detroit with 22 points and nine assists on Wednesday, making 8-of-13 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs with four rebounds and two steals.

Smith also had just one turnover in 33 minutes and he helped limit the Hawks to 42.7% shooting tonight, which has been a weak spot for the Pistons lately. This was Smith's best performance since Feb. 3 and he heads into the break on a high note, even if this came against a decimated Hawks team playing without Dennis Schroder. If you're holding him, just remember that Reggie Jackson (ankle) could be back in by March.

Langston Galloway was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.

Galloway's backup role was usurped by Jameer Nelson tonight, although coach Stan Van Gundy said afterward about his rotations, "I don't know we'll stay that way." The Pistons' backup PG spot has been rotating since Reggie Jackson (ankle) went down and there's no reason to rely on Galloway, Nelson or Dwight Buycks.
Feb 11 - 7:51 PM

Ish Smith was back in the starting five on Sunday, finishing with seven points on 3-of-9 shooting, five assists, four rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

Stan Van Gundy mixed things up tonight, promoting Smith while bumping Dwight Buycks ahead of Langston Galloway in the PG rotation. Smith has been unimpressive even with the starting job this season, and he made some poor decisions late in this 121-104 road loss. Reggie Jackson (ankle) could be cleared for basketball activities in a few weeks, so there's no real long-term upside here.
Jan 28 - 10:15 PM

Ish Smith shifted to the Pistons' bench on Wednesday, where he shot 6-of-17 to finish with 14 points, three assists, two rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer.

Smith logged 33 minutes tonight, which is ironically more than he's averaged as a starter (29.8) in place of Reggie Jackson. It's unclear whether Langston Galloway will stick in the starting PG role, but either way Smith's owners should be satisfied with his role tonight. Let's see how the minutes are divvied up vs. Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Saturday.
Jan 25 - 12:43 AM

Langston Galloway was quiet as a starter on Wednesday with five points, four assists and two rebounds in 20 minutes.

Galloway had overtaken Dwight Buycks for the backup-PG job, and Stan Van Gundy gave him another promotion tonight ahead of Ish Smith (14 points in 33 minutes). It was still Smith who played the lion's share of the minutes, but owners who speculatively added Galloway should give him another game or two. It helps that Reggie Jackson (ankle) still doesn't have a clear return date.
Jan 25 - 12:43 AM

Dwight Buycks came off the bench for 17 points (6-of-10 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), three assists and two rebounds during Wednesday's road win, adding two 3-pointers and one steal in 24 minutes.

Reggie Jackson's severe ankle injury has thrust Buycks into the backup PG role behind Ish Smith (eight points, five assists in 24 minutes), and he's making the most of the opportunity. He's providing a trickle of stats, particularly scoring and assists, but hasn't yet done enough to merit ownership outside of deep leagues.
Jan 11 - 12:02 AM

Ish Smith posted six points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's loss in Miami.

Detroit's default starting PG while Reggie Jackson (ankle) is out, Smith continues to log solid minutes ahead of backup Dwight Buycks. He shot just 3-of-10 from the field tonight, but over the past six games he's averaging a solid 13.2 points (48.6% FGs, 100.0% FTs), 4.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 0.7 steals. You could do worse for a low-end PG.
Jan 4 - 12:09 AM

Dwight Buycks, who is on a two-way contract with Detroit, is determined to make an impression on the Pistons.

With Reggie Jackson (ankle) sidelined for next six-to-eight weeks, Buycks has an opportunity to show he's worthy of sticking in the NBA. "This is my dream, to be here and be here permanently," he said. "It’s up to me to put the work in and be successful out here. I’m just happy to be here." Buycks is unlikely to see an immediate role behind Ish Smith and Langston Galloway, but it's not ludicrous to think he could play his way into the point guard rotation.

Pistons beat writer Rod Beard expects Langston Galloway to play about 20 minutes per game as the backup point guard with Reggie Jackson (ankle) out of the lineup.

Galloway has averaged just north of 14.5 minutes per game on the season, so it's logical to expect a bump in playing time with Jackson unavailable for the next six-to-eight weeks. For what it's worth, Beard expects interim starter Ish Smith to play around 28 minutes per contest. As a starter in 2016-17, Smith averaged 29.5 minutes per game. Of the two, Ish is a far better fantasy target while Galloway could get onto the radar as a 3-point specialist.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 04:25:00 PM

Avery Bradley (right groin) will not play Sunday vs. the Magic.

This will be Bradley's second straight game on the sidelines, which will result in Luke Kennard earning his second consecutive start, and Kennard will be joined by Reggie Jackson, Reggie Bullock, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond. The fact that Bradley was a game-time call today suggests that he's getting close, so maybe he'll be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game in Dallas.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 03:49:00 PM

Tobias Harris scored just two points on 0-of-7 shooting in Tuesday's blowout loss to Denver, adding eight rebounds, one assist and one steal.

After the game, coach Stan Van Gundy called out Harris, Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Avery Bradley after Detroit's seventh straight loss. "In my opinion, these are our four best players. They have to play better," SVG said. "If you want the money, want the credit when things go well, you have to have some accountability." SVG added that this loss was an "embarrassment, so fantasy owners should be on the lookout for any potential lineup changes. Harris was averaging 18.0 points in 35.2 minutes in his previous six games, so he should bounce back from this dud on Thursday vs. the Hawks.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 10:37:00 PM

Ish Smith was on the court down the stretch on Sunday, finishing with 11 points (5-of-13 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

Smith helped Detroit close to within four points with 4:19 remaining tonight, but his efforts weren't enough to snap the Pistons' losing skid. Reggie Jackson was lousy with two points on 0-of-9 shooting, but it's nearly impossible to predict which games Smith will win the position battle. Leave him on the wire.

The Pistons improved to 14-6 with a lopsided victory on Wednesday, aided by Ish Smith's 14 points, six assists, three rebounds and one block in 21 minutes.

Detroit's 36 first-quarter points marked a new season high, as they feasted on the Suns' hapless defense. They extended the lead to 28 points by halftime tonight, so there was plenty of garbage time for guys like Ish, Luke Kennard (12 points, six assists in 26 minutes) and Langston Galloway (nine points in 20 minutes). Ish is just a borderline option in 14-team leagues while Reggie Jackson is healthy.

Ish Smith scored 15 points with three rebounds, four assists, two blocks (!), and one 3-pointer on 7-of-11 shooting in Friday's 99-98 win vs. OKC.

Ish played 22 minutes compared to 26 for starter Reggie Jackson, who finished with 12 points, three rebounds, four assists, three turnovers, a steal, and two 3-pointers. So long as Smith and Jackson are in a timeshare, the potential fantasy upside for both guys is capped.

Tobias Harris hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers to lead the Pistons with 11 points, five rebounds and three assists in Monday's 116-88 blowout loss to the Cavaliers.

The Pistons never knew what hit them in this one, falling behind 36-23 in the first quarter and then getting tuned up 37-23 in the second quarter for a 73-46 halftime score. Stanley Johnson and Reggie Jackson each scored 10 to join Harris in double figures, but the bottom line is tonight wasn't the night to start your Pistons.
Mon, Nov 20, 2017 09:15:00 PM

Ish Smith had four points, four rebounds and four assists during Wednesday's loss to the Bucks, shooting 2-of-11 from the field in 26 minutes of action.

Smith closed out this game ahead of Reggie Jackson, but before anyone gets excited, Stan Van Gundy said afterward, "neither [Pistons] point guard played very well." In other words, this doesn't change Smith's outlook and he's just an assists specialist in deep leagues.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 12:07:00 AM

According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, the Pistons are interested in Eric Bledsoe.

Reggie Jackson would likely be included in a potential deal, but the Suns would also need a young prospect or draft pick compensation for these talks to advance. The Nuggets and Bucks were originally considered the frontrunners to land Bledsoe, but the Suns are going to wait patiently for the right offer. For what it's worth, a move to Detroit would be great for Bledsoe's value with the Pistons eyeing a return to the postseason.
Thu, Nov 2, 2017 12:24:00 PM

Ish Smith helped the Pistons steal a 115-107 win on Sunday, coming off the bench for 16 points and two assists, making 6-of-7 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws.

Smith logged 18 minutes, compared to 30 minutes for starting PG Reggie Jackson, who was also effective with 22 points, five dimes and three rebounds in 30 minutes. Jackson is asserting himself as easily the better guard to own, with higher upside and the starting job in hand, while Smith is best viewed as a handcuff.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 11:40:00 PM

Ish Smith handed out 13 assists in 22 minutes on Wednesday, while starting PG Reggie Jackson added 10 points, four assists and two rebounds in 25 minutes.

As we feared before the season, this is turning into a persistent timeshare at PG for the Pistons. R-Jax has enough offensive punch to maintain value, and while he's healthy it will be hard to trust Smith in 12-team leagues. Ish has yet to make a 3-pointer this season, and before tonight he was averaging a modest 3.5 assists per game.
Wed, Oct 25, 2017 11:03:00 PM

Stanley Johnson will start in Wednesday's season opener against the Hornets.

Joining him in the starting five will be Reggie Jackson, Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond. Stan Van Gundy has hinted that he'll be mixing and matching his starting five all year long, so while Johnson will get the call tonight, he could be replaced in the coming days based on the matchup.
