Reggie Jackson (neck spasms) is questionable to play Sunday vs. the Celtics.

Jackson wasn't able to go through shootaround, although he was able to get in some work around 3pm ET, so he's shaping up to be a game-time call for tonight's game. Owners will have to check back closer to tip-off for an official update, but if he's out, Ish Smith would draw the start and he'd be someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or low-budget DFS option. Stay tuned.

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said he's trying to figure out how to get the best out of Reggie Jackson.

"I think he's been trying defensively," SVG said. "Just offensively, we've got to find an answer. I know he's frustrated. He's frustrated with me, play calls and things like that. So, we're going to have to find something to where he can play more effectively, more productively, on the offensive end of the court." R-Jax has the worst plus/minus rating of anyone on the roster and hit rock bottom on Thursday with four points and four assists in just 20 minutes. He's shooting 36.3 percent from the field in February and looks a like a drop candidate in standard leagues if there's a hot free agent available.

Reggie Jackson hit just 1-of-6 shots for four points and four assists in just 20 minutes of Thursday's 114-108 OT win over the Hornets.

Jackson had a bad night, helping to dig his team into an early 18-point hole, finishing the game with a +/- of -14, and watching his backup hand out 16 assists and help bring the Pistons back for one of the best wins of their season. Add in the fact that Stan Van Gundy was trying really hard to move Jackson at the deadline, and the future is up in the air here. Just keep in mind that it's only one game and Jackson is still the starter, for now, so don't do anything drastic with him. But if you have room to pick up Smith without dropping anyone too valuable, now looks like the time to make your move.

Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today is hearing that Reggie Jackson likely won't go anywhere at the deadline.

The Pistons have a high asking price, yet Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported on Wednesday night that a lot of teams don't view Jackson as a starter. Unless the rumors ramp up, Ish Smith is losing some stash appeal with a Jackson trade looking unlikely. According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, the Pistons will continue to aggressively shop him and they are looking for a first-round pick, a young player or an expiring contract.

The Pistons have "continued to gauge the market" for Reggie Jackson, according to's Marc Stein.

In case you missed it on Friday, the Pistons have reportedly talked to the Magic about a Jackson for D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green deal. Plus, last month there was a Jackson for Ricky Rubio report, and also ESPN's Zach Lowe said the Pelicans had exploratory interest in Jackson. Ish Smith isn't the greatest stash in fantasy, but he has some appeal for owners needing a point guard.
Feb 18 - 7:21 PM

The Pistons and Magic have discussed a trade that would send Reggie Jackson to Orlando for D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

To be clear, nothing is imminent. We're going to see a lot of Jackson trade rumors as the deadline approaches next Thursday. He's been vastly outplayed by Ish Smith lately and the Pistons just don't have the ammo to compete in the Eastern Conference right now, so being sellers makes sense. There could be some sort of draft compensation for the Pistons, but Jackson being signed through the 2019-20 season is a big factor on potential move. It makes sense to stash Ish Smith in deeper leagues.
Feb 17 - 2:54 PM

Reggie Jackson finally broke out of his slump in Wednesday's 98-91 win over the Mavericks, scoring 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

R-Jax was averaging 10.4 points on 37.3 percent shooting in his previous 10 outings, so it has to be a huge relief for his owners that he finally showed some signs of life before the break. He dished out four assists with a pair of steals and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes, but Ish Smith also played well with 10 points and three assists in 20 minutes. In case you missed it, a report by Zach Lowe of ESPN indicated that R-Jax is a candidate to be moved at the deadline, but a trade may not be a bad thing with Smith breathing down his neck in Detroit. Jackson has been a bust this season, but he's still a hold in most leagues and tonight was encouraging.
Feb 15 - 11:01 PM

The Pistons are open to moving Reggie Jackson at the deadline, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

Lowe states that while the Pistons are unlikely to part ways with Andre Drummond, sending away Jackson isn't entirely out of the question. Thus far, Jackson has been linked to New Orleans, Orlando and Minnesota, and out of all those potential destinations, Orlando would probably be the best landing spot as Jackson would easily be the No. 1 option on offense there. If he does end up getting traded and Detroit doesn't bring back a guard, Ish Smith would likely emerge as Detroit's starting point guard, so he's someone to consider stashing away in deeper leagues.

Reggie Jackson hit 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, two rebounds, nine assists and a steal in 31 minutes of Monday's loss to the Bucks.

Jackson has been struggling, to put it mildly, scoring nine or fewer points in three of his last four games. His shot isn't falling and he's averaging just 9.0 points, 1.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 36 percent shooting in his last five games. He's due to break out of his funk soon, but for now, Jackson is a tough guy to start in fantasy leagues.
Feb 13 - 10:49 PM

Reggie Jackson hit 1-of-5 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for six points, one assist and two steals in 17 minutes on Sunday against the Raptors.

Jackson struggled once again and was outperformed by Ish Smith. Jackson has hit a rough patch, averaging 25.8 minutes, 8.8 points, 6.2 assists, and 1.8 rebounds per game in his last six heading into this contest. He has also played fewer than 30 minutes in eight consecutive games. Although his recent performances can be frustrating to fantasy owners, he remains a hold.
Feb 12 - 8:47 PM

Reggie Jackson scored four points with two rebounds, eight assists and no turnovers in 23 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.

Not the best game. He was hobbling for a moment in this game, but he stayed in the game. Coach Stan Van Gundy also loved what RJ brought on the defensive end. "He worked extremely hard defensively on D'Angelo Russell," SVG said. "I thought maybe it was his best defensive game." Jackson continues to disappoint for his fantasy owners and really only has mid-round upside. That's still not a lock either.
Feb 9 - 12:01 AM

Reggie Jackson scored seven points in a 105-84 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, adding three rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

He didn't have a good game, but there's no way to draw a conclusion to his minor injury from Friday. Jackson did not exactly have a good four-game week for his fantasy owners, averaging 8.8 points, 2.0 boards, 5.5 assists, 0.8 steals, 1.3 turnovers and 0.3 treys. He is a buy-low player, but he may have a tough time being a top-75 guy in standard leagues.

Reggie Jackson is in the starting against the Pacers on Saturday.

He is fine after a bump to his leg on Friday. Jackson will join Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris, Jon Leuer and Andre Drummond.
Feb 4 - 6:31 PM

Reggie Jackson says his knee is fine and is expected to play Saturday night vs. the Pacers.

Jackson banged his left knee with about five minutes left in the fourth quarter and limped down the court before coach Stan Van Gundy pulled him from the game. Jackson did not return. However, afterward, he said he was fine and could have returned if needed. "Just a slight bump. Little stuff. I tried to get back up. I was good to go," said Jackson. It appears it was just a minor scare, but could be something to keep an eye on Saturday night.
