Reggie Jackson, entering his sixth NBA season, believes he will have to "step up this year and be an even more impactful leader and more of a voice of reason and direction" for his Piston teammates.

Despite being only 26 years of age, Jackson is a one of the more respected and experienced vets on a young Pistons team. From a fantasy perspective, it will be interesting to see if Jackson's playing time increases next season. In 2015-16, Jackson averaged a career-high 30.7 minutes per game. This summer, the Pistons signed Ish Smith to a three-year, $18 million contract to serves as the team's backup PG.

Reggie Jackson expects the Piston to take a big step forward this season.

Jackson spoke approvingly of the Pistons offseason moves and expects their deep roster to play an important role this season. "I think we’ll be scary this year," Jackson said. "But you know what? I don’t want to talk about it too much. We’ll let the season speak for itself." The 26-year-old will return as the Pistons starting point guard and will be a mid-round pick in standard fantasy leagues after averaging 14.5 points, 6.0 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.9 treys in 2015-16.

Speaking on SiriusXM NBA Radio, Reggie Jackson said he is excited about the potential of the Pistons this season.

"I don't believe there necessarily is a ceiling," Jackson said. "We can go as far as we want. But it's really going to come from internal growth as a team. Not just in skills but mentally, as well, and being ready for the burden of the season." The Pistons added a lot of depth this summer and will be looking to improve upon their eighth-place finish in the East. Jackson has some competition behind him in Ish Smith, but he's fully expected to return as the starter which makes him a mid-round option in standard leagues.

Reggie Jackson said he wants the Pistons to be a better defensive team next season.

"We want to be a better defensive team, mentally tougher at end of games. I have to put guys in better position," said Jackson. Kyrie Irving regularly roasted Jackson on the defensive end during Detroit's first-round loss to the Cavs, so he's right in saying that the Pistons need to improve in that category. He'll be worth a late-round selection on draft day after averaging 14.5 points, 6.0 assists, 0.9 triples and 0.8 steals per game on 43.4 percent shooting this past season.

Reggie Jackson said that he'll be spending a lot of time in the film room this summer trying to figure out how to attack defenses, and acknowledged that he needs to be a quicker decision maker next season.

"Figuring out how to attack defenses, be a starter (on offense) and figure out how teams were covering me," Jackson said. "Just seeing where people challenged me and made me [have a] bad games, so I can try and go in and improve on those aspects and really see what guys did. I need to be better with quicker decisions." Jackson does tend to over dribble, so it's admirable that he's already looking to rectify that part of his game. Additionally, Jackson said that a trip to the Finals will be Detroit's goal for next year.

Reggie Jackson scored 13 points during a 101-91 Game 3 loss on Friday, adding four rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

He had a terrific first quarter with seven points, three assists and one steal, but made just 2-of-10 in the second half. Jackson has been exploited on defense in this series with Kyrie Irving batting 1.000 against the Pistons. The Pistons will try to avoid a sweep on Sunday at home.
Apr 22 - 10:02 PM

Reggie Jackson scored 14 points on 7-of-14 shooting during Wednesday's loss, adding six assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and one turnover in 37 minutes of action.

Jackson said his team was confident in their first-round series vs. the Cavs, whom he dubbed "Goliath," and to their credit the No. 8 seed has shown impressive tenacity. They still face a 2-0 deficit, however, and need to get more production from their second unit -- the starters fared well tonight before tiring down the stretch, but the key reserves had an average +/- rating of -17.3.

Reggie Jackson (abdomen) scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Cavs, adding seven assists, two rebounds, one steal, two 3-pointers and three turnovers through 34 minutes.

Jackson started the game out overly passive, putting up just three shots through the first half of action, and then he became overly aggressive during the fourth quarter forcing up tough shots and over dribbling. He posted a plus/minus rating of minus-11 in this one, and he'll need to be much better if the Pistons hope to upset the No. 1 seeded Cavs during their first-round series.
Apr 17 - 6:08 PM

Reggie Jackson (abdomen) is "good to go" for Game 1 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

He went through a full practice on Friday and this was the expectation all along. Jackson also said that the Pistons held him out of the final two games of the regular season as a precaution, so he shouldn't be limited in the playoffs.
Apr 15 - 1:35 PM

Reggie Jackson is "optimistic" that he will be ready for Game 1 on Sunday vs. the Cavaliers.

"I definitely felt better today," Jackson said on Wednesday. "I didn’t get the chance to do too much movement or anything of a basketball nature to find out how well it is, but I’m very optimistic. I feel a lot better." R-Jax wanted to play in the final two games of the regular season, but the Pistons held him out as a precaution. This is great news for Detroit and it sounds like he's fully expected to play after going through a full practice on Friday.
Apr 15 - 11:35 AM

Reggie Jackson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond will not play on Wednesday against the Cavs.

It's rest for the Pistons as the NBA most-played lineup at 915 minutes -- that includes Ersan Ilyasova and not Tobias Harris, of course. Jackson is on the injury report with an abdominal strain, but it seems minor. He should be ready to roll for Game 1 over the weekend.
Apr 13 - 6:43 PM

Reggie Jackson (abdominal strain) will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Cavs.

The Pistons are locked into the No. 8 seed out East, so there's really zero incentive for Jackson to play and perhaps risk a more serious injury. Steve Blake will start, with Spencer Dinwiddie and Lorenzo Brown splitting the backup minutes.
Apr 13 - 9:30 AM

Reggie Jackson (abdominal strain) said he expects to be "OK" for the playoffs.

He was a late scratch for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat and this likely means he will not be able to play on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers. The Pistons have already been locked into the No. 8 seed in the East, so they won't risk him at less than 100 percent. Steve Blake will likely draw another start on Wednesday with Spencer Dinwiddie backing him up off the bench.
Apr 12 - 10:45 PM

Reggie Jackson (abdominal strain) is a late scratch on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

This comes out of nowhere and it sounds like the Pistons want to be cautious with playoffs right around the corner. Steve Blake is fully expected to start, but he's not a great option in fantasy due to his low upside. It's still unclear if Jackson will be able to return on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers. For what it's worth, Stan Van Gundy said he's day-to-day.
