Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Reggie Jackson was dealing with a stomach bug on Sunday vs. the Grizzlies.

This explains why Jackson didn't play down the stretch. He did seem OK when he was on the floor, finishing with 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples. If Jackson doesn't recover in time for Monday's game vs. the Raptors, expect Ish Smith to step up. Smith had 11 points and 11 assists in 28 minutes Sunday.
Apr 8 - 6:57 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 24 points during a 113-106 overtime win over the Mavs on Friday, adding seven assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He's been a little up and down, and there's a big grain of salt here going up against Andrew Harrison and other young guards. Still, Jackson has played well enough to be used when active, but the Pistons have nothing to play for now.
Apr 6 - 11:11 PM

Reggie Jackson couldn't buy a bucket during Wednesday's loss to the 76ers, going 1-of-11 from the field and 6-of-6 from the stripe on his way to eight points over 20 minutes.

Jackson also came through with four rebounds, seven assists, one block and two turnovers, and while he got off to a solid start, earning all six of his free throws attempts within the first four minutes of play, he just couldn't find his shot tonight. With the loss, the Pistons were officially eliminated from the postseason, so Jackson could start losing some minutes to Ish Smith over Detroit's final handful of games.
Apr 4 - 10:06 PM

Reggie Jackson had 29 points, four rebounds, three assists and one steal during Sunday's win in Brooklyn, making 9-of-22 FGs and 11-of-13 FTs in 32 minutes.

This was Jackson's first back-to-back set since returning from a prolonged ankle injury, and it's encouraging that he looked just as spry in the second game. He's starting to pick up steam for owners who grabbed him off the wire, but has been a liability for percentages (38.8% FGs, 50.0% FTs) with just 3.2 assists, 2.5 boards, 1.0 triples and 0.3 steals per game. Plan accordingly with three games on Detroit's schedule next week.
Apr 1 - 8:58 PM

Reggie Jackson will play on Sunday against the Nets.

This will be Jackson's first back-to-back set since coming back from the ankle injury, but at the very least, he should be looking at minutes in the mid-20s so he's worth deploying in most settings with a favorable matchup against Brooklyn.
Apr 1 - 4:48 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 17 points with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

He's looking much better and not having Blake Griffin around should give him more chances to produce offense. The 25 minutes is noteworthy here because the Pistons have been playing him 28, so maybe the Pistons will play him on Sunday against the Nets.
Mar 31 - 7:56 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 13 points with two rebounds, eight assists and four turnovers in 28 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

He did have what looked like a minor ankle tweak in the second half, but he stayed in the game. Jackson's minutes are on the rise and maybe he can play in both the Saturday and Sunday games. Jackson has not played in both games of a back-to-back injury since returning five games ago.
Mar 29 - 9:54 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy believes that the Pistons have a chance to be really good if Reggie Jackson can stay healthy.

"He was healthy his first full year here and we won 44 games and we didn’t have nearly the talent around him then that we do now," SVG said. "And then last year he had to come back in the middle of the season [due to tendinitis in his knee] and then this year he started off and we were 19-14. We know, it’s been demonstrated." Jackson scored 20 points with five rebounds, three assists and two triples in 28 minutes vs. the Lakers on Monday and could eclipse the 30-minute mark for the first time since his return on Thursday vs. Washington.

Reggie Jackson scored a team-high 20 points to lead the Pistons to a 112-106 win over the Lakers on Monday.

Jackson played 15, 20 and 22 minutes in his previous three games and was supposed to play 20-25 tonight, but coach Stan Van Gundy didn't want to take him out. He ended up playing 28 minutes and scored seven points in the final seven minutes. That included a dagger pull-up shot with 45 seconds left to seal the win. He finished 9-of-22 from the field with five rebounds, three assists and two triples and is finding his rhythm faster than expected. With three more games this week, fantasy owners should roll the dice on Jackson going forward and hope the minutes continue to trend up.
Mar 26 - 9:24 PM

Reggie Jackson will play 20-25 minutes on Monday vs. the Lakers.

He has played 15, 20 and 22 minutes in his last three games as his workload continues to grow. He's basically in a timeshare with Ish Smith now, but does offer more per-minute upside. Still, he's a low-end fantasy asset as long as he's limited to minutes in the mid-20s.
Mar 26 - 11:34 AM

Reggie Jackson (ankle) will play a "little bit" more on Thursday vs. the Rockets.

Coach Stan Van Gundy didn't give a number, but said he'll be able to use R-Jax at the end of games going forward. After playing 15 minutes on Tuesday, this means Jackson could potentially eclipse the 20-minute mark in his second game back.
Mar 22 - 1:32 PM

Reggie Jackson (ankle) finally returned to action on Tuesday vs. the Suns with seven points, two assists and one triple.

He was limited to 15 minutes as expected, but looked fine for the most part. Jackson did have a fall in the fourth quarter, but he didn't grab his ankle and he came out of this game without any setbacks. The Pistons will gradually increase his workload, so he's not a great pickup if you need to rely on him this week. Once he's cleared for 25+ minutes, that's when fantasy owners should consider grabbing him.
Mar 21 - 12:56 AM

Reggie Jackson (ankle) will start on Tuesday vs. the Suns and play about 15-16 minutes.

As expected, he's going to have heavy restrictions right out of the gate and it could be a while before they are completely lifted. If you do pick him up, expectations should be very low for the first week or so. Ish Smith will return to the bench, but he'll hold most of his value until Jackson's cleared for 24+ minutes.
Mar 20 - 8:36 PM

Reggie Jackson (ankle) has a chance of getting back out there for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

Stan Van Gundy implied on Sunday that Jackson would be back this week, but Monday wasn't an option with it being the first game of a back-to-back set. Maybe he gets out there tonight, but he'll be very limited so he won't do much for you in fantasy hoops. Jackson belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
