Reggie Jackson made 1-of-5 from the field for four points with two rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and two steals in 29 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.
Against the fast-paced Kings, he lost minutes to Jose Calderon. He has been dreadful over his last five outings, averaging 9.4 points, 3.2 boards, 3.4 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.2 treys. Jackson isn't worth owning in 10-team leagues, and that's a fairly cold take. Jan 19 - 9:47 PM

Andre Drummond filled up the boxscore on Wednesday with 16 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in 35 minutes.

Drummond shot 6-of-11 from the field and a surprising 4-of-4 from the line, which is a nice bonus since his FT percentage is down from last year and his 50.2% FGs are a career-low. Blake Griffin was also great with 23 points, nine boards, six assists and four 3-pointers, and Reggie Jackson added 19 points and six dimes to help Detroit avoid a third straight defeat.

Ish Smith suffered a right adductor muscle tear and coach Dwane Casey said he will be sidelined for 3-6 weeks.

Smith suffered the injury on Wednesday vs. the Bucks. The Pistons don't have much quality depth at point guard, so it's a tough blow for Detroit. With Smith sidelined, Jose Calderon will serve as the primary backup behind Reggie Jackson. Langston Galloway, Bruce Brown and Khyri Thomas could also see some time at PG going forward.

Glenn Robinson will replace Stanely Johnson in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Heat.

Johnson has been extremely ineffective with the starting unit, so if Robinson plays well tonight, the change could be permanent. Joining GRIII in the starting unit will be Reggie Jackson, Bruce Brown, Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.

Coach Dwane Casey loves playing two-PG lineups, which benefits Ish Smith's playing time.

So far this season, Smith is playing 12.9 minutes per game alongside starting point guard Reggie Jackson. Casey wasn't afraid to play two, sometimes three, PGs together when he was in Toronto. This makes Ish a good bit more attractive as an add if you need assists. Langston Galloway has also benefited from this.

Bruce Brown is being listed as a starter for Wednesday's season opener against the Nets.

Being listed as a starter in the lineup notes doesn't necessarily mean that Brown will indeed start, but with both Reggie Bullock (illness) and Stanley Johnson (toe) out tonight, it would make sense for Brown to join the starting unit. Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard, Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond are also listed amongst the starters for Wednesday's game.

Pistons coach Dwane Casey intends to play Ish Smith alongside Reggie Jackson at times this season.

"I really liked Reggie and Ish together and it helps Reggie because he’s an excellent 3-point shooter," Casey said. "[I]t gives another ball-handler in the lineup. We’ll see that lineup some this year, with multiple point guards." This gives Smith's fantasy outlook a substantial boost, but he's still not a guy to target with R-Jax healthy and Blake Griffin dictating much of the offense.

Jose Calderon made a fill-in start on Wednesday but had just one point, one assist and one turnover in a win vs. the Thunder.

Calderon played 19 minutes with Reggie Jackson (ankle) unavailable, presumably because coach Dwane Casey wanted to keep the second unit together to begin the game. Ish Smith wound up starting the second half anyway, and even if Calderon does earn sporadic starts when Jackson is unavailable, he's a poor fantasy option as an extremely low-usage table-setter for the offense.

Ish Smith started the second half of Wednesday's road win, posting six points, five assists, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

The Pistons were torched by Dennis Schroder early so they opted to have Smith join the starters in place of Jose Calderon. It must be noted that Reggie Jackson (right ankle) was unavailable tonight, but unless he misses extended time there's no reason to own Smith in fantasy leagues.

Eric Moreland will start Monday vs. the Raptors, with Andre Drummond (Achilles) unavailable.

Joining Moreland in the starting five will be Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard, Stanley Johnson and Anthony Tolliver. In Moreland's previous start this season, he finished with eight points, eight boards, four dimes, two steals and a block, so he could be someone to think about streaming.
Mon, Apr 9, 2018 07:01:00 PM

Andre Drummond (Achilles) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Raptors.

Drummond does not have a history of Achilles issues, but the Pistons are on the second leg of a back-to-back set, and there's zero incentive for Drummond to push through anything with the playoffs no longer a reality. The Pistons will be very thin up front tonight with Blake Griffin (ankle) also unavailable, so there will be plenty of minutes for guys like Henry Ellenson, Anthony Tolliver and Eric Moreland. Reggie Jackson will be very busy on offense in this one.

Andre Drummond (stomach bug) did not go through shootaround, but he's hopeful he'll be able to play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

Drummond got into a bit of a skirmish with Quincy Acy on Sunday, but he will only be fined and not suspended. However, the illness could keep him out tonight, which could result in Eric Moreland earning the start, with guys like Reggie Jackson, Reggie Bullock and Stanley Johnson doing more on the offensive end. Stay tuned.

Ish Smith went off vs. Brooklyn on Sunday, making 7-of-8 shots for 17 points, two 3-pointers, two assists, one steal and one rebound in just 17 minutes of action.

He was 7-of-7 in the first half alone, but eventually took a backseat to Reggie Jackson. Smith came in shooting 43.2% from deep over his past 28 games, way above his career average 29.4%, which is an interesting wrinkle to watch during the offseason. He and Jackson are both under contract next season, though, and it's hard to envision Ish being drafted in standard leagues while R-Jax is locked into the starting PG job.

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.
Sun, Feb 11, 2018 07:51:00 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.
Sun, Jan 28, 2018 10:15:00 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.

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.
